How could a 24 years old former PhD candidate in neuroscience commit such a heinous act in "killing" 15 people and injured dozens others and he claimed himself to be"Joker" from Batman movie.....
I was livid when I read the news about the massacre, a fictitious "Joker" was brought to real life in the form of James Holmes (the alleged Colorado killer).
I remember watching my first Batman show and with Jack Nicholson playing out the role of "Joker" and I hated that role,albeit the splendid performance by Jack Nicholson (one of my all time fav actors), the wickedness of Joker,his smartness in manipulation and his dwelling in darkness was out brought out in the Colorado Massacre.
The question again how could a bright 24 years old did one of the worst mass-shooting in US history, he was brought up in a mid upper class home, went to a "elite" school when he was small...............highly educated.
When I read about the news on line, this James Holmes suffered a twisted personalities akin to the fictitious "Joker" ,he became cynical and he hated the so called "all the rights" in the common society.
I am afraid that this might not be the end of a real "Joker" and I am fearful that how many "Jokers" are still obliviously out there,waiting to hunt down and kill Batman (s)
May be it has got something to do with our society, the unfairness, the rot of of right thinking,the unkind standards that this society labels you, the loss of compassion in the many of us, the crazy competitions among fellow humans, the decay of our morality or may be that GOD had been "unGodded" .
I am sure this "weird" thinking (to the extend of mass killing) did not manifest over nights, it might have been brewing for a long time until the brewing is pushed through the bottle neck and that's when the unthinkable or the unfathomable happens.
Seriously speaking, let us love our little ones, keep them safe, instil in them Godly values and try out best to make them better..................
P/S : No more Joker please...
