Colorado theatre shooting suspect former Occupier in San Diego

without comments

The “Doo Doo Economics Blog” reports that Colorado shooting suspect James Holmes is a former member of the Occupy San Diego group.

After doing some research, Florida private investigator Bill Warner discovered Holmes’ ties to Occupy San Diego. Warner reported his finding in his blog post, ‘Occupy Black Bloc Member James Holmes Shoots Up Aurora Co Movie Theater Killing 12 And Wounding 50.’

Discoveries of Holmes’ Occupy activities also call into question the accuracy of media reports claiming that Holmes’ only past offence is a traffic ticket. Holmes not only had connections to the San Diego Occupy movement, he was the subject of at least one photograph (shown here) being arrested at a San Diego Occupy protest.

However, it didn’t take long for left-leaning pundits to try and connect Holmes to the Tea Party. Earlier today ABC News reporter Brian Ross speculated than another man named James Holmes listed on a local Tea Party site was possibly the suspected shooter.

Conservatives immediately lashed out at the report on ABC News and Ross for showing media bias so quickly. Some have called for Ross to be fired for his erroneous conclusion.

The author of the economics blog, Doo Doo Economics Blog, writes that  Holmes was a member of the “black block” faction of the Occupy movement, but reportedly left the group because, ’It wasn’t radical enough.’ The blog post also includes screen shots from a site allegedly connected to Holmes who is reported to have written that, ‘He would kill everyone at the opening of the Batman movie in Colorado.’
