Lets not lose perspective about how dangerous it is just walking to the theater.

You know what I’ve noticed? Nobody panics when things go ‘according to plan.’ Even if the plan is horrifying! If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it’s all ‘part of the plan.’ But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!”

Eerily prescient- why are these deaths any less important than the twelve in Aurora? Their social status! If these deaths were in an affluent white neighborhood, you better believe it would be the police department’s top priority.
