The first lawsuit stemming from the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado, at a screening of Batman 'The Dark Knight Rises' has been filed. Yesterday, Torrence Brown, Jr., who attended the movie during the shooting spree and saw his friend A.J. Boik shot dead, has retained attorney, Donald Karpel, to file suit on his behalf.

TMZ states something the Judiciary Report wrote from day one, the violence factor in the film would lead to Warner Bros being sued, as the gunman, James Holmes, mimicked what he saw in the studios films and an accompanying Batman comic of the same name.

There's been an ongoing competition in Hollywood to outdo each other on whose works can be the most violent, graphic, sexual and or controversial. It has been a descent into madness and mental illness in Hollywood. The Judiciary Report has been warning Hollywood for nearly four years to tone down the graphic violence, among other things, in their films, as some members of the public would try to recreate it, but no one listened and now the worst has happened.
