James Holmes - Where was his family?

On July 20, 2012, after midnight, 12 people were mowed down in a theater in a suburb of Denver, Colorado. 

Up to 59 others were wounded or injured.  

James Holmes, age 24, has been taken into custody over this tragedy. 

He earned a bachelor’s degree with honors in neuroscience in 2010 from the University of California, Riverside, and was a graduate student in neurosciences at the University of Colorado at Denver’s Anschutz Medical Campus, although the university said in a statement that he was in the process of withdrawing. He was collecting unemployment. 

Pray for the victims
of this tragedy.
They went to a movie
for a fun night out
and now they are dead.
God help us. 
After his arrest, he told authorities that he had booby-trapped his apartment with explosive devices, leading the police to evacuate five buildings in the neighborhood as they sought to disable what they described as “incendiary and chemical devices” that appeared to be rigged to trip wires. 

There was no evidence on Social Media websites posted by this man that he was violent. 

James Holmes' family has stated the following:

“Our hearts go out to those who were involved in this tragedy and to the families and friends of those involved, We ask that the media respect our privacy during this difficult time. Our family is cooperating with authorities in both San Diego, California and Aurora, Colorado. We are still trying to process this information and we appreciate that people will respect our privacy.”

You didn't realize that
your son was tormented?
You didn't realize that the son of your body was wildly psychotic? You didn't realize that he was disturbed, violent and a psychopath? 

He hid everything from you? Apparently including all of his personal feelings and fears and delusions and fantasies. You had no clue as to what was going on in your own son's head? 

Were you really there as parents or only marginally there? 

God help us. Save us from the psychopaths who kill the innocents. Amen

We have seldom known of a parent who did not know the issues affecting their own child, whether the child is 5 years old or 50 years old. 

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, pray that parents in this day and age know their own children or at least try to know them. At least, they can do that if nothing else. Amen.

You should not be judging anyone on slight grounds according to Aquinas who said doubts about people are to be interpreted for the best. Otherwise you sin by rash suspicion.. Can you control 24 year olds in your family.
He is an adult not a ten year old. He can legally refuse therapy and as his parent, you could not do a thing about it.
