Who is James Holmes?

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Colorado shooting suspect James Holmes made his first court appearance yesterday in a district court in Arapahoe County, Colorado. He remained expressionless as a judge informed him of his rights.

Prosecutors aren't expected to file formal charges until next Monday. The charges are likely to be extensive: Not only were 12 people killed and 58 wounded, police say the extensive traps set in Holmes' apartment appeared designed to kill officers too.

Last month we heard "CNN and Fox Drop the Ball on Reporting Health Care Ruling" but nothing about ABC dropping the ball on this story?
