‘Dark Knight Rises’ Aurora Shooter Found Guilty of Murder

‘Dark Knight Rises’ Aurora Shooter Found Guilty of Murder

Despite a plea of insanity, James E. Holmes has been found guilty of murder by a Colorado jury today. The man was convicted of 24 counts of first degree murder following a 2012 shooting rampage that left 12 people dead. The horrifying incident took place in the town of Aurora, inside a suburban Denver movie theater that was showing a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises.

One of the big questions raised by the trial was how pop culture inspires people to kill. But there is no definitive answer to the question, with many arguing that movies and TV shows should never be blamed for a person's mental state. Though they can certainly contribute one's social view of the world. James E. Holmes is a former neuroscience student who studied at the University of Colorado-Denver. He pleaded not guilty in his case, citing reasons of insanity. While found guilty of 24 counts of murder, he also went into his trail facing 140 counts of attempted murder and one charge for possession of an explosive.
