The basis for this article (update) are the following axioms of criminology. 1) Most crimes are committed by a relatively small group of Individuals. 2) Most criminals commit many crimes before they are caught. 3) Most crimes are committed near the home or place of work of the perpetrators.
James E. Holmes and John Shick, were “super students” studying brain science. They grew up in California within about forty miles of each other in Orange County and adjoining North San Diego County. Both suddenly dropped out of school and went on mass killing sprees.
John Shick lived in New York City, Northfield, Minn, Portland Oregon and Pittsburgh Pa. He had a reputation for attempting to lure women through what the women he encountered considered to be badgering. Within a few miles of every place he lived at least one women disappeared. One was found butchered approximately 1.4 miles from the office of a Dr Micheal Stone. Her name was Sarah Fox. All the women had things in common, blond hair, about 5’10, trim and butterfly tattoos. John Shick was obsessed with the number two. Three of these women had two children. All of these crimes remain unsolved.
Interestingly, Sarah Fox murder was somehow briefly tied to DNA found on a chain at an Occupy Wall Street protest, although the evidence was quickly found to be a “lab error”. Then less than a week later James E. Holmes went berserk and was immediately accused of being a Tea Party Member and then immediately accused of being a “Black Bloc Occupy” member.
Both accusations are seemingly fanciful as a radical Tea might attack a federal building and a radical Black Bloc might attack a Bank, or perhaps, maybe a Police Station, but neither group has ever expressed anger with movie theaters. Nevertheless, corporate pundits have jumped at the opportunity to grab the headlines with anti-gun and anti-tea party and anti-99% rhetoric, which I find highly suspicious and other conservatives have pointed out that this rhetoric is at least suspect, in that it proceeds a vote on the UN Small Arms Ban, which if approved would in theory outlaw US citizen ownership of all repeating rifles and pistols.

Suspect sent chilling notebook to psychiatrist before attack
By Jana Winter Published July 25, 2012 FoxNews.com
Police and FBI agents were called to the University of Colorado Anschutz medical campus in Aurora on Monday morning after the psychiatrist, who is also a professor at the school, reported receiving a package believed to be from the suspect.
“Inside the package was a notebook full of details about how he was going to kill people,” the source told FoxNews.com. “There were drawings of what he was going to do in it — drawings and illustrations of the massacre.”
The intended recipient of Holmes’ notebook was a professor who also treated patients at the psychiatry outpatient facility, located in Building 500, where the first suspicious package was delivered. It could not be verified that the psychiatrist had had previous contact with Holmes, who was a dropout from the school’s neuroscience doctoral program and had studied various mental health issues and ailments as part of his curriculum.

Western Psych shootings followed volatile years for John Shick
March 18, 2012 12:00 am Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
With the help of a relative, Mr. Shick landed a job as a research assistant in a laboratory at the University of Southern California. “That’s definitely unusual,” said David Stone, the neuroscientist who oversaw him at USC. “Not a lot of people have publications in peer-reviewed journals in their high school years.”
In 2000, Mr. Shick contacted Mr. Stone, the researcher he’d worked with in California, who was at a lab at Harvard Medical School’s psychiatric hospital in Belmont, Mass.Recalling his strong work ethic as a teenager, Mr. Stone rehired him for a research project that examined the genetics of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Mr. Shick was listed as a co-author of a paper that appeared in the Archives of General Psychiatry in June 2002.

For the Worst of Us, the Diagnosis May Be ‘Evil’
By BENEDICT CAREY New York Times Published: February 8, 2005
Predatory killers often do far more than commit murder. Some have lured their victims into homemade chambers for prolonged torture. Others have exotic tastes – for vivisection, sexual humiliation, burning. Many perform their grisly rituals as much for pleasure as for any other reason.
“We are talking about people who commit breathtaking acts, who do so repeatedly, who know what they’re doing, and are doing it in peacetime” under no threat to themselves, said Dr. Michael Stone, the Columbia psychiatrist, who has examined several hundred killers at Mid-Hudson Psychiatric Center in New Hampton, N.Y., and others at Creedmoor Psychiatric Center in Queens, where he consults and teaches. “We know from experience who these people are, and how they behave,” and it is time, he said, to give their behavior “the proper appellation.”
