Last week, we reported about bizarre documents filed in the Aurora theater shooting case; they claimed Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates and the Illuminati, among others, were behind the massacre. But just because this notion seems nutty is no reason to dismiss all conspiracies, believes one reader.

People love to throw the word theory on the end of a conspiracy, so people will ridicule it. it is belligerently apparent there is a monolithic conspiracy to exterminate and enslave U.S citizens. JFK talked about it extensively a few weeks before he got shot in the face. I guess that is all conspiracy as well. GTFO. Keep plugging away at these blind sheep running around what they consider a country and what we consider a real big prison cell. Here is to freedom and fighting to keep that right.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
