He was wearing a gas mask and body armor, and people pointed out Bane also wears those things in the movie.
Well, I didnt read about it all that much, I just heard about it on the radio a while ago. They said "a crazed man in costume attacked a colorado movie audience and killed 12 people, during the airing of the latest batman movie."
But yes, a bane costume makes a bit more sense I suppose. The question still remains though. Why a batman movie? Dressed as the villain? I mean, why not do it in a mall or a street (Not saying these would be better) Just sayin, it's an odd choice of when and where.
It wasn't a costume. He was wearing an actual gas mask and actual body armor, and an actual riot helmet. He wasn't in costume like going to Comic-Con, he was in costume like going into war.njb902 wrote:I see he was useing an ar-15, for such a small caliber gun they do make some nasty wounds.
AR-15 can use just about anything from 9mm to .50 cal. Then again, there is no caliber of bullet that doesn't leave a wound.
most ar-15's are .223(or 5.56mm if you prefer), and the ammunition they use is some of the most damaging in the world(at least as far as assault rifles go). what I can't belive is the media saying it was an ak style weapon, what are they afraid to piss of the army or our military industrial complex....hell maybe the nra. I've been a member of the nra since I was 18, but i never saw the point in a civilian being able to have an assult rifle or smg. spent to much time in Afghanistan to ever think anyone needs the damned things. sorry to sound preachy.
anyways at least they have a good case against this guy. only thing that I question is if he is convicted how will he be sentinced.
