Aurora Theater Shooter Apologizes for Massacre, Released
DENVER, CO - One week after announcing they'd seek the death penalty against James Eagan Holmes, U.S. prosecutors dropped all charges today after the 25 year-old apologized for shooting to death 12 people and injuring another 70 in an Aurora, Colorado movie theater last summer.
Arapahoe County District Attorney Rodney Glover indicated in a press conference that Holmes had taken full responsibility for the massacre, which was perpetrated during a very difficult period in his life.
"Considering what a terrible week Mr. Holmes had leading up to the massacre and how sorry he is for perpetrating it, it is my determination that he should be set free," Glover said.
According to courthouse witnesses, there were few dry eyes in the room when Holmes made his mea culpa.
"I'm sorry for shooting all your family and friends or whatever," Holmes said, "Especially if they died."
Holmes went on to promise that he won't commit any more mass shootings in the future.
"Oh, sure," he said, "I promise not to shoot any more people."
Asked about his plans for the future, Holmes joked that he plans to go home and chop up his parents with an ax.
