The University of Colorado has released 1,500 e-mails from accused Aurora theater shooter and former student James Holmes's e-mail accounts. (They didn't release 1,200 others, deeming them privileged.) Most of the released e-mails are mass messages, though there are a few notes authored by Holmes. CU also released e-mails sent to Holmes on July 20, the day authorities say he opened fire at a midnight movie premiere. Read them below.
