2012 Colorado Theatre Shooter Gets 12 Life Sentences, PLUS 3,318 Years

james holmes

The minimum sentence could have been as light as 12-life sentences plus a little over a 1,000 years, but the judge gave him the maximum, just in-case.

Holmes, a 27-year-old former grad student, received one life term for each person he killed, plus 3,318 years for the attempted murders of those he wounded and for rigging his apartment with explosives. He is not eligible for parole.

“It is the court’s intention that the defendant never set foot in free society again,” Judge Carlos A. Samour Jr. said after imposing the sentence Wednesday. “If there was ever a case that warranted a maximum sentence, this is the case. The defendant does not deserve any sympathy.

“Sheriff, get the defendant out of my courtroom please.”

There was a smattering of applause as Holmes, shackled at the waist and wearing red prison garb, was led away from the courtroom where he has spent most of his days since jury selection began in January.

        Who cares about a name , what it matters to me are my actions , as long as I don’t hurt anyone , instead helping someone who is in an emergency situation makes feel like a normal human being.

    3318 years! That’s ridiculous. To put that into perspective, 3318 years ago Ramses wasn’t even pharaoh yet. Give him life without parole or better yet, execute him and put him out of our misery.

    3318 years, that’s just stupid.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      They thought it would send the wrong message if the judge only gave him 1,100 years, with the possibility of parole after serving just 800 years.
      I agree.

    As a humane gesture allow him to apply for euthanasia and maximum organ harvesting after ten years in confinement. if they parted that monster out he could help a dozen people.

    America is imploding from within. Guns, violence, drugs, jihad, racism, suicide, homicides, mass-murders and all kinds of evil and the situation in this hellhole (America) will only get worse in the coming years. 11000 murders in 2011 alone and tens of thousands dead since!

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      How many murders were committed by Africans?

      • Millie_Woods

        Well played.

      • Justin St.Denis

        The overwhelming majority of violent crime and murder in the USA is perpetrated by blacks.

    • Millie_Woods

      I’d rather be homeless in America than be a prince anywhere in Africa.

    • Paulla

      It’s very peaceful where I live (in California). In fact, our crime rate is going down each year.

      • lolwut?

        Compared to what?

        • Bataviawillem

          I guess the year before?

          • lolwut?

            Kinda like Chicago having 600 murders in one year and then only 598 the next.

            Politicians will declare, Crime is down!

    He’s clearly insane. Had he been thinking he’d have shot up a crowded theater in Norway instead. They give him maybe 3000 days of counseling, before sending him back home.
