Another potential target for civil lawsuits would be Century Theaters, where the shooting took place. It was reported that Holmes entered the theater through an emergency exit before throwing off gas canisters and using at least two guns in the shooting. One may wonder just how Holmes got in through the emergency exit and if the theater did enough to protect the crowds. That said, metal detectors and pat-downs aren’t standard at most U.S. movie theaters. (emphasis mine)
Sweet buttery Christ, preserve us from a future with TSA checkpoints in random public spots. Is there any civil liberty people won’t willingly give up to protect them from something scary, but incredibly unlikely?
