Need to Know News: Colorado shooting suspect makes first court appearance; Penn State hit with $60 million fine;

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For July 23, 2012 – Colorado shooting suspect makes first court appearance, Penn State hit with $60 million fine, and Bradley Wiggins makes history with first Tour de France victory for British cyclist...

• Colorado theater shooting suspect makes first court appearance: "The man accused of opening fire Friday in a packed movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, made his first court appearance Monday, giving the public its first look at the 24-year-old former doctoral candidate since his arrest."

Penn State hit with $60 million fine: "The National Collegiate Athletic Association announced a $60 million fine against Penn State University on Monday and took away 14 seasons of football victories from the late Joe Paterno."

Mitt Romney's other tax secret: "Romney has for months touted an ambitious plan that promises massive tax cuts. He has also steadfastly refused to say how he would pay for them."

Spanish bailout fears to spark stock sell-off: "Investors are bracing for an ugly start on Wall Street Monday, tracking a global-sell-off amid heightened fears that Spain will need a full-blown bailout."

• Bradley Wiggins makes history with first Tour de France victory for British cyclist: "Bradley Wiggins made history on the Champs Elysees Sunday as he became the first British rider to win cycling's Tour de France. And in a double triumph for Britain, his Team Sky teammate Mark Cavendish claimed the 20th and final stage in Paris for the fourth successive year."

    I understand Holmes could not get a job with his degree. Find out from the University if he used the Placement Office and what type of job neuroscience majors usually get. Is it possible prospective employers gave him a psych test (of course, given to all applicants) that may have eliminated him from consideration? If so, there should be a back channel way for an employer to report to someone in authority that "this person has a mental problem."

      This guy from the Colorado shooting, to me is someone that just wanted to be recognized. What he did was totally wrong. He couldn't find a job, he was a loner. He wanted to prove to the world that he was smart. He wonders, how do I get recognized nationally. First thing, you go and kill innocent people at a main event and then you set up your apartment with explosives to show the world that you know what you're doing. The media will recognize you as a smart person. Yeah he could of shot himself after he came out of the theatre but then him hearing about the work he set up in his apartment would of been useless. He wanted the police to ask him how to diffuse the explosives. Then he knows to himself that he is smarter then the police. He was by his car when the police arrested him and he told them about his apartment. He wanted the credit for doing that and wanted to hear about it first hand. He had to go out and draw attention to the world by killing innocent people just to show the world that he is smart enough to get a job somewhere but his education and smartness still left him without a job. He wanted that recognition for his hidden talents and would do anything to get it. It's ashame that the lost lives he took and the injured, to me was a diversion to show the world his real talents which was what he did in the apartment that had the police working hard to diffuse the explosives. To sum this up, he was just someone that was trying to get recognized and used the shootings to get everyones attention. If he would of shot himself or had a shoot out with the police and then killed, his whole plan would of been defeated. He wanted to be around to see the ending even though he will probably get life plus 100 years without parole or the death penalty.

    This is very, very tragic. My heart bleeds for the family and all the victims. Was James Holmes identified as a Moslim or an Islamist terrorist ? Why was the FBI and other not contacted when he was purchasing so much of firearms? Would he be questioned if he was brown, black or yellow? Or a person with a certain accent that was non American? What type of a computer and iPhone did he use? Was it an APPLE or a DELL where he made this evil purchase was made. We know nothing about his parents or his siblings. Had he been Moslim the media would have lynched him like the once did to the Blacks.

    Piers Morgan needs to do his homework, because 32-33 students were killed at Virginia Tech. So its not the biggest massacre here. But that being said. He would have found a way to kill if he was that determined. He was a genius.
    And needed help. But do we as Americans recognize Anybody crying for help or are we just too busy to take the time to care about anyone other than ourselves. I want to be able to own my own guns and not be harassed. Also guns don't kill people do. And we are all responsible for our own actions. My heart goes out to the families of the decease and to James and his family.

    Gang lu university of Iowa shootingh 1991- failed grad student
    Virginia tech 2007- failed grad student>
    Colorado shooter- recently left grad school?
    is it the pressure of grad school and the inability to deal with failure?
    In every instance someone knew they were struggling and did nothing.

    Terrible interview with Lott. Piers Morgan completely wasted everyone's time with his need to be the loudest voice ad nothing said in the end.

    After watching Mr Morgan verbally assault and abuse a guest he invited to be on his show, Mr. Lott, Mr Morgan sounded like the irrational one. I agree with Mr Lott that if you remove all the guns from the law abiding citizens, the only one with them will be criminals. We would be better served to find out how the mind of the criminal involved in the Aurora shootings evolved into one capable of such a heinous crime. I will not be watching Mr Morgan again any time soon.

    omg. More guns, less crimes. As Piers noted, who needs an automatic weapon for protection? Who needs to own a gun that the military should only have access to? It has gotten out of control and the fear is growing for regular people who don't carry guns for any reason.I am one of thousands of people who frequent that mall and theater. Do we become hostages in our homes for fear of going out? Enough already.

    You kept shouting that the Ar-15 could fire 100s of rounds a minute. As the fellow who you interviewed kept trying to tell you, but was constantly shouted down in mid sentence, it is NOT a military fully automatic weapon but a semi-automatic weapon that requires the user to pull the trigger each time he wants to fire a bullet. Your interview was contemptible; this is a serious issue deserving serious discussion, not two folks repeating themselves as they shouted down someone who had opinion and facts we never heard and could not judge.

    If you read the justification of the right to bear arms in the Federalist Papers, you will find the purpose is to give the population the ability to overthrow the government (like they just had the local British government) when it is required to overthrow governments when they become tyrannical. Not too practical in the world of modern war weapons of state. On the other hand, I can name a major European state that requires every household to have an military grade automatic weapon.

    Look at the tape of the show, you should be embarrassed; you did nothing to further this important debate.

    So although you folks pay lip service to the 1st amendment you obviously choose to censor the platform you give it, only publishing what suits you.

    A shame.. but consistent with the "rag" mentality of your host.

    You put on some good work that I enjoyed but I won't be supporting your show anymore not even when you want me to appear on it.
