Colorado Shooter Has Weird Online Fan Club: Sick or Just Immature?

Online fans and memes are bound to surface on just about anything -- but this may be taking it too far. These online fans call themselves "Holmies" -- because the man they're honoring is James Holmes, the alleged gunman who shot and killed 12 people in an Aurora movie theater just a few short weeks ago.

By dressing in plaid and flannel and posing with Slurpees, these "holmies" are giving an ode to Holmes, as the 24-year-old former student was evidently dressed in plaid and flannel underneath his gun armor during the shooting and once said that his dream is to own a Slurpee machine one day. Do you think the spring-up of these online "fans" is sick and twisted -- or is it just an immature act by adolescents who don't know any better?

NYDAILYNEWS.COM reports:
Ironic, satirical or just plain depraved? Accused Aurora killer James Holmes has inspired an online legion of 'fans' who upload original artworks and photos of themselves sporting Holmes-inspired plaid shirts flannel and sipping Slurpees.

    It's just Immature, people make memes out of everything. Being fans is a different story.

    Definitely immature but terribly sick none the less. This reminds me of a friend I had in high school who went through a phase in which she thought it was cool to adorn her notebooks and skin with swastikas!! She wasn't anti-semitic, she was just an attention whore.

    Not sure, please define weird. If it's not against the law, I'm probably willing to send your kids to war to defend his right to be weird. Belive it or not there are those whom believe I'm a bit weird. I know it's hard to believe but there some that do. For an instance my X-wife! What do you think?

    This is true, unless the government was connected to Holmes and his sick act. That question remains.

    But some people think idolizing the mass murderer Che is cool too - and that is equally just as sick if not more so and they rarely get noted for their love of a murderer.

    I think it's funny
    Fun Fact: People who are interested in serial killers tend to have better conversations
    Before anyone pops a testicle on here about that meaning that those people are gonna turn into serial killers, the key word there is interested
    That doesn't mean they're sick in the head
    I find serial killers interesting, so what

    I cant say if its sick. The thing about people online is that there thoughts and opinions are almost irrelevant. People say and do things online that they don't have the courage to stand by in the real world. I promise you nobody would say on live tv i think what that man did was cool and heroic. anybody who cant state there feelings to the world is either scared ashamed don't believe in what they are pretending to believe in or is a coward. When you post something online ask yourself if a camera was in my face and the whole world would know about this would i do it? If the answer is no that means you have a conscious and you truly know right from wrong but choose to do stupid things online because you know that behind that screen nobody will ever know who you are. I think this fan club is just immature young kids who want to belong to something so formed this group hero worship in itself is somewhat childish to me but that's my personal opinion. So i find those worshiping or glorifying what this man did are just immature and that this fan page should merit no attention otherwise by giving it attention you give them a reason to be part of this group just go away and let that group fade in the wind. If i say or do something online its something i have no problem standing by and...

    Maybe the " fans" should have been shot. They are sick in the head and don't know what it feels like to have a loved one have their life took. Or maybe nobody loves them that's why they turn to violence the poor pathetic souls. I'm not judging them but if they are fans of this evil bastard. They should be dead too. There's no more room for evil so to all the " fans" you are the one who has to answer to God.....

    I wonder about the people who answered immature. Let's have another question about that. They, the Holmes fan club, may be immature too, but they definitely have a deeper problem that needs watching by a professsional.

    SICK. Anyone that would want to join a group of Holmies, or formulate a group to honor a mass killer, like James Holmes, is definitely sick, and they need to be put on a WATCH LIST by authorities, because they just might go further and immitate Holmes murderous rampage. These people show signs that they need psychiatric help, they are mentally ill, and may pose a threat to society. This is carrying Free Speech just too far.

    Why just two choices, both of which are negative? If posing a question, have answers not slanted so much. And before I get attacked heavily, realize I say this in the spirit of differing opinions.

    I'd like to hear their thoughts. Know their age group. Know their educational background. Know their social places. Know their parents. Sometimes you can't fix stupid. So you need to contain it.
    Know excuses and no-excuse.

    Immature or not it is sick to support a psyco looser who killed innocent people because he was unhappy about something. They are sick and the sight should be derided by every intelligent person who can get to it. These people are fools and should hear it from everyone who cares.

    Just immature. Most likely attention-wanting individuals, sheltered kids in dire need of an a**- whooping, or someone who has killed a lot of people- on Call of Duty.
