So, the shooter was a Yankees fan? Or does the cap belong to Christian?

A classy thing to do.

Ummm, @Dickg. I don't think that Red Sox or Yankees fans would appreciate you calling that hat a Yankees hat ;-) BoSox hat. That being said, I wish the hat wasn't there as He looks like he has a pretty rocking body.

Wow not a bad Robin for a hot Batman. I'm imagining the healing now.

but this part from the article was more touching for me
"....Rottman also posted a photo of himself and a woman tagged Stephanie Rodriguez who Rottman calls "My hero."
"This is the amazing young woman who made a turnakit [sic] for my leg out of her belt after I was shot. Her bravery is simply inspiring. I cannot thank you enough for helping a stranger in need! You are a true guardian angel!" Rottman wrote...."
that made me choke up

I'm sorry but I'm not feeling the Christian Bale love. He's made an awful lot of money by appearing in ultra-violent movies such as Batman. As an actor, Bale profits from the fetishistic violence that apparently triggered the maniac in Aurora.

God Jason, do you ever get tired of that constant negative perspective of yours?

Isn't this the gentleman who was arrested for trying to beat up his own mother, and who was recorded verbally abusing his production crew?

"Wow not a bad Robin for a hot Batman. I'm imagining the healing now."
I wonder if massage therapy is part of "Robin's" healing process and whether he is accepting volunteers, even if he is a Red Sox fan.....I would even throw in a free massage of "Batman" as part of the "package"......

Nice move on his part. However, the article doesn't mention whether or not he yelled at the orderlies when they got in the way of the camera flashes.

@Mike, of course it's a Red Sox cap. The point being the intense rivalry between the two teams. The joke that a Yankees fan would shoot a Red Sox fan is of course, just that. An attempt of humor in a horrible situation. As for any actions in C. Bale's past, we are all complicated people capable of both kindness and cruelty.

I know it's not what I should be thinking, but that guy on the bed is super mega hot!
Posted by: Frederick Shuffrey | Jul 24, 2012 9:38:19 PM
Those were the first thought that came to my mind. And then I quickly forgave myself because he's really hot and awfully cute laying in bed there. God I'm horrible.

Oh please any hot blooded gay man will think that the shooting victim is very attractive young man.
Posted by: jaragon | Jul 24, 2012 10:14:23 PM
Ok well, there's "attractive" and then there's an exuberant "WOOF! " followed by vigorous panting.
Posted by: Jason 2 | Jul 24, 2012 10:21:42 PM
That is SO COOL!

I feel less ashamed that I am not the only one who thought the guy in bed was attractive.
I claim it as a coping mechanism.

Mike C - yes, he is the same man. And you're right, those actions are objectionable. But you know what? This doesn't. In fact, it's gracious, kind, and meant a great deal to many of those affected by this horror. And he did it of his own volition.
In other words, save your preaching for a situation that warrants it, and accept that people CAN be complicated - and good deeds deserve acknowledgement, not ridiculousness.

Mr. Bale made a very nice and kind gesture. Too bad some bitter posters on this site have to turn it into something else. Grow up guys.
