Colorado Shooter Was Camp Counselor for Jewish Big Brothers and Sisters


An undated handout photo released by the University of Colorado shows James Holmes, reportedly the shooter at a theater in Aurora, Colorado.

An undated handout photo released by the University of Colorado shows James Holmes, reportedly the shooter at a theater in Aurora, Colorado.

James Holmes, the Colorado graduate student who is suspected of killing 12 moviegoers and wounding 58 others on Friday during the premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises,”  worked as a camp counselor in Los Angeles County in 2008 that was run by Jewish Big Brothers and Sisters (JBBBS), the group’s CEO told NBC4 on Saturday.

James Holmes, 24, worked as cabin counselor at Camp Max Straus in the summer of 2008, according to Randy Schwab, the CEO of Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Schwab’s statement read: “It is with shock and sorrow that we learned of the incident in Aurora. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends of those involved in this horrible tragedy. On behalf of Camp Max Straus I want to offer our deepest sympathies and condolences.”

Schwab said that, as cabin counselor, Holmes was in charge of the care and guidance of about 10 children. His role was to ensure that the children had a “wonderful camp experience.”

According to Schwab, Holmes helped the children in his care “learn confidence, self esteem and how to work in small teams to effect positive outcomes.”

His statement continued: “These skills are learned through activities such as archery, horseback riding, swimming, art, sports and high ropes course.”

Camp Max Straus is a nonsectarian program for children ages 7-14, which is run by Jewish Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Los Angeles.

Holmes is not Jewish.

    The camp webstite itself says you must be jewish to be a counselor. But what does it matter anyway?

    You have to go to the site, then go to the FAQ section, someone please tell me why this is an issue.

    Kathy Haq: nice to know that the "drones" will always appear to show their stupidity

  4. Susan Geckle says:

    Jews are committing genocide aganst US working poor whites. They advocate massive immigration from latino countries. They bring in illegals and give them jobs whites are then fired from. The whites are left destitute with no way to survive except for the military. They are cannon fodder for zionist ME wars. Jews commtted 9/11.

  5. Susan Geckle says:

    Where I live, jews brought in illegal latinos and gave them jobs whites were then fired from. They called them racist, redneck nazis if they complained. The poor whites were forced into the military to survive. Zionist wars in the ME to kill their muslim neighbors means illegals must be brought in so "poor white trash" can be their cannon fodder. Jews have 3 ongoing genocides on their hands: working white Americans, muslims, now Japanese. And you don't think we know?

  6. Max Misch says:

    From the FAQ page of the JBBBS:
    Q: What are the qualifications for becoming a Jewish Big Brother or Big Sister?
    A: You must be Jewish and over the age of 21.

  7. Kathy Haq says:

    @ Susan. Zionists are the biggest enemy of the Jews as they are the ones who are are seen to 'represent' them as the government of Israel. They are evil and their venim has spread world wide. They are the ones who use the term anti Semitism as a threat to people who criticise their evil ways. They are the cause of most of the troubles/wars in the world and Israel is using any excuses to bring us all into another war in Iran. Netanyahu is the sporn of Hitler as he wants to wipe out the Muslims.

  8. Susan Geckle says:

    The mainstream media is jewish. You should see the zionist times (the washington post) beat up and say degrading things about white gentiles. Jew comedians too. Any white who dared not vote for their puppet Obama was called a toothless klan member. Funny how when Puerto Ricans voted for Clinton they didn't name call them. Then again, jews love the "minorites" (who are 92% of the worlds population) and want to destroy gentile whites. I wonder how Israeli's would react if tens of millions of Mexicans were allowed to settle in Israel, take their jobs, while your gov't used displaced jews as cannon fodder for wars that jews constantly start. And call them racist rednecks illiterate retard nazis in the media if they protested? Not going to happen, you use white Americans to fight your battles. Just another genocide in the day of the life of jews.

  9. John Pierce says:

    "With just about every major tragedy in our world, someone always has to find and to post a link to the Jews no matter how far back in history it may have been so as to denigrate the Jewish heritage in some way or manner."

    That's a lie and you know it. If you don't, you're truly ignorant. Jews have been disproportionately involved in all sorts of treachery, subversion, criminality and terror throughout history. Facts are facts whether you accept it, or like it.

    "Camp Max Straus is a nonsectarian program for children ages 7-14, which is run by Jewish Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Los Angeles."

    Yeah, sure, Tibbi.

    Wrong. Holmes is Jewish and you're trying to cover-up that fact. Nice try.

    I'm pro-gentile, first and foremost, same way you Jewish supremacists are pro-Jewish. Got that? I'm more than sick and tired of YOU people smearing us with that obfuscating term. Second, more than a few of us so-called anti-semites (in reality, Jew-wise gentiles), read VERY well. Got that?

    Right-on, Susan! Tell 'em like it is! But don't forget, in doing so it's also 'hate' and 'intolerance' and how can we ever forget, it's "anti-semitic." BIG yawnnn. Right, arrogant Abe Foxman?

    Israel rounds up African migrants for deportation
    June 11, 2012|Douglas Hamilton | Reuters

    "TEL AVIV (Reuters) – Israel said on Monday it had started rounding up African migrants in the first stage of a controversial "emergency plan" to intern and deport thousands deemed a threat to the Jewish character of the state."

    How about the White American "character" of America these countless illegal alien interlopers are altering? Oops, can't say that, for that's "racist" and "hateful" and "xenophobic." Better keep my mouth shut and not resist and let what's left of White America be overrun be non-whites and turned into a crime-ridden, overpopulated, run-down turd world sewer, i.e., North Mexico.

    "The goal is to repatriate all the estimated 60,000 African migrants, whose growing numbers are seen by many Israelis as a law and order issue and even a threat to the long-term viability of the Jewish state."

    How about the "long-term viability" of the White American state?

    "Illegal migration, and the pool of cheap labor it provides, is a common headache for developed economies. Israel is grappling with its own special ghosts as it tackles the problem."

    Really? Damn, maybe that's why it's so difficult for millions of American CITIZENS to find employment these days.

    "Many Sudanese, including hundreds who escaped from conflict and humanitarian disaster in Darfur, have been in Israel for several years, living in legal limbo without formal refugee status, but peaceably, they say.

    Now they are caught up in a wave of hostility towards blacks in general, focused on a poor area of south Tel Aviv where they congregate.

    We're being called a cancer and an AIDs virus on the Israeli people, by politicians in the Knesset," said protest organizer Jacob Berri."

    My gosh, how shocking! How "intolerant", "xenophobic", "hateful" and "racist." Where's that sanctimonious Abe Foxman when you need him most?

    "Diversity is our greatest strength." Yeah, in (white) goyim's land. But not in Israel.

  15. John Pierce says:

    "You find no mention of this guy being a Jew in the Gentile mainstream media"

    Gentile mainstream media? LOL! That's really funny! Tell me another joke! What's not "funny" is ALL "mainstream" media in the USA is Jewish owned! ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX (Rupert Murdoch's mother is Jewish),etc. That is a FACT and not a so-called "anti-semitic canard."

    Why does it matter? Jewish media control permits Jewish interests rather than American interests to take precedence though it's never presented that way.

    Jewish control of our news and entertainment media are doing more than merely giving them a decisive influence on our political system and virtual control of our government; they control the minds and souls of our children, whose attitudes and ideas are shaped more by Jewish television and Jewish films than by parents, schools, or any other influence. All that and more, that's why.

    Lynn's Wide Awake

    Really? How about "since the "time" of the Jewish communists who preceded National Socialists by sixteen years and by then had terrorized and "exterminated" tens of millions of ethnic Russians, Ukrainainians, by Jewish communists? All we ever hear when making reference to the ultimate "evil" is the word Nazi. The word should be COMMIE.

  17. John Pierce says:

    Yeah, I hear ya. What "does it matter anyway." Just accept as fact what Jews tell you else you're an "anti-semite."

    Melissa From-Chicago

    Yeah, okay, Melissa, whatever you say. Same way Jared Loughner (shooter of Gabby Gifford) is 'not' Jewish. Tippi knows better than Rachel Fein.

    Theres evidence that the triple meltdown in Fukushima was caused by a modified form of the stuxnet virus that Israeli's put in the Japanese nuclear system. The stuxnet virus was first used on the Iranian system to derail it. Israeli's got mad at Japanese for working with Iranians, modified the stuxnet virus for Japanese. Then there was an earthquake, which caused the safeguards to malfunction. VP Joe Biden was heard to say, "The Israeli's went to far this time," when he heard about it. Why is the zionist press not talking about the triple meltdown, but the Colorado story is front and center? Do jews have a holocaust to hide?

  20. Steve says:

    Man, the nuts are out in full force on this article.

  21. George Wells says:

  22. @David Sims: The "rich and powerful jews" who are responsible for the Zionist behavior are a group called the Ashkenazi. Who are front for the Rothschilds and the illuminati.
