JOHN LAFORGE – James Holmes was in court Mon., July 30, in Aurora, Colorado, charged with 142 counts of murder, etc. The whole world knows of this initial hearing for the alleged murderer/terrorist because every detail of Holmesâ€™ life is now regularly put at the top of TV and radio news shows and above the fold in every newspaper.
