Holmes Told Peer He Was 'Bad News' Prior To Shooting

Former University of Colorado graduate student and accused mass murderer James Holmes sent a text message to one of his peers in July, asking her if she had heard of dysphoric mania.

Holmes told her his dysphoric mania—a form of bipolar disorder that can sometimes include paranoid delusions—was under control, but she should stay away from him because he was "bad news."

Holmes also told a fellow student in March that he wanted to kill people "when his life was over," according to court filings released last week. He showed another student a Glock semiautomatic pistol and told the student it was "for protection," reports the New York Times.

Holmes is currently being held in Arapahoe County jail awaiting arraignment on 142 criminal counts for allegedly killing 12 and wounding 38 in a July 20 shooting at a movie screening in Aurora.

Amazing. This guy, with an IQ that MENSA would welcome, has laid the grounds for an insanity plea over the last few months by spreading the word he was unstable. The text to the young lady was pure genius! And he was "suited up" so he wouldn't get shot when he surrendered! Lets eradicate this scum and erase his name for good.
