Episode Info: It was supposed to be a great night celebrating a new film, the final installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman series with "The Dark Knight Rises." The tragedy there left 12 people dead and 58 wounded. It also left us with a variety of questions, like are theaters safe? What can be done to protect those who simply want to have a couple hours of escape? Does violence in films and video games (reel violence) really create violence in the real world (real violence). And why should we ever forgive the shooter, and should we? Host Michael Hinman tackles those questions in a special edition of Alpha Waves Radio. Guests include screenwriter and social sciences teacher Carlos Pedraza, theater fan and Airlock Alpha writer Robert Yaniz Jr., Texas Methodist Church minister Josh Hale, and a former theater manager who thinks the story in Colorado could've been much different if people were allowed to carry concealed weapons into the auditorium for protection. It's all food for thought while we remember those we've lost, and pray for those who are recovering.
