A legal analyst spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Hollywoodlife.com about the ‘Dark Knight’ shooter’s first appearance in court. Will James be able to prove insanity? Was his apathetic appearance in court an act? Find out what our analyst said.
The question is: will James be able to prove he is insane? Jeanine thinks it is unlikely.
“The premeditation, the planning, the calculation works against the idea of insanity and temporary insanity. The planning and forethought was done not in hours, days, or weeks, but for months,” Jeanine explains.
“He was functioning in school for the four months before and started ordering the weapons four months ago.”Jeanine noted. Adding that, “There is no way that he can plead temporary insanity.”
During James’ first court appearance, he was expressionless and seemed to be falling asleep during the arraignment. Jeanine believes that James’ lackadaisical manner is all an act and he is fully aware of what he is doing.
“This guy is an actor — the fact that he took on the persona of the joker — I don’t think any of the behavior will suggest who he is. I think this is all a game to him.”
