CENTENNIAL, Colo. - The University of Colorado-Denver stood firm Friday in saying it never barred James E. Holmes from campus, despite newly released court documents that indicate the suspect in the Aurora movie massacre had his student ID card deactivated after he alarmed a school psychiatrist. Dr. Lynne Fenton told campus police officer Lynn Whitten on June 12 - more than a month before the July 20 rampage that killed 12 and injured 70 - that Holmes had "homicidal thoughts" and might be a danger to the public.

Carolyn Baber had been married to Daniel Baber for 16 years when she decided to walk away from the relationship in 1997. Unhappy for several years over her husband's growing criticism of her, she had asked, even pleaded, with him to see a marriage counselor. He refused, saying he was too busy, expressing his view of therapy with a litany of expletives. She tried again and again, amplifying his withdrawal and rejection. Finally his refusals became the marriage's death decree.

As legalized marijuana appears in an increasing number of American homes, so too does evidence of a dark side: accidental ingestion of pot and pot-infused food by young children. The results can be frightening to such children, who often suffer anxiety attacks when they start to feel unexpected symptoms of being high: hallucinations, dizziness, altered perception and impaired thinking. And the trend should prompt equal concern among adult caregivers and public health authorities, since ingestion of highly potent marijuana by young children can suppress respiration and even induce coma, according to a study published online this week in JAMA Pediatrics.

Iran's capital erupted in chaos and violence today as anti-government protestors and security forces clashed on the 30th anniversary of the seizing of the U.S. Embassy by radical students. Today's demonstration did not appear to be as large as the huge marches that erupted following the disputed June 12 reelection of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. But the protest, the largest in six weeks, struck at one of the ideological pillars of the Islamic Republic by showing that a sizable chunk of Iranians disagree with hard-liners' anti-American agenda.

University of Colorado-Denver psychiatrist Dr. Lynne Fenton told a campus police officer about her concerns June 12, the day after she met with Holmes for their only session. Her fears were revealed Thursday when the new judge presiding over the case unsealed a host of search warrants and arrest documents.

Los Angeles Times AURORA, Colo. - It was less than half an hour into a post-midnight screening of the latest Batman movie,"The Dark Knight Rises,"when a young man opened an emergency exit door and slipped into a packed multiplex theater. He was dressed in dark, head-to-foot body armor, including a helmet, gas mask, vest and throat guard, and he was armed. "He didn't say anything," said Tayler Trujillo, an 18-year-old moviegoer. "He like kicked the door open with his foot and held it open with his foot, and he threw something and it landed in the row in front of me. " What ensued was several minutes of grisly horror as the intruder, armed with a combat-grade arsenal, set off two gas canisters and sprayed the theater with sustained gunfire.
