Colorado shooting suspect struggled to find work, neighbor says

The L.A. Times reports:
The alleged gunman in the deadly "Dark Knight" movie theater shooting had trouble finding work before he returned to school to study neuroscience in Colorado, a San Diego neighbor said Friday.

James Holmes, 24, who graduated from Westview High School in San Diego in 2006, could not find work after graduating from UC Riverside in 2010 with a bachelor's in neuroscience, said Tom Mai, a retired electrical engineer who lives in the Rancho Penasquitos neighborhood where Holmes grew up.
No word yet on whether Mayor Bloomberg will suggest banning so many people going to college (because so many recent college graduates are unemployed) to prevent these tragedies.
