Yeah, you can find really interesting patterns in old rusted or metals that have been patinized or weathered. You can even put plates of copper in the oven and bake them and get really beautiful effects. Or just shoot pics of old metal objects you don't see anymore.
Yet you link to "Human Events". Let's look at how partisan they are...

There's some guy on MSNBC named Corbin Dates being interviewed about a second guy with a goatee, who apparently sat in the front row, got a phone call, went to the emergency exit and stood either near it or just outside it. Corbin left for a minute; when he came back the door appeared to be closed. So I guess it remains to be seen.
It just says that some guy thinks someone deliberately let the gunman in, and that someone in the front row took a call, and walked to the emergency door. It could have been the shooter himself, getting a phone call from someone, walking outside to take the call, and returning with his guns. Or alternatively, it could have been an entirely different person taking an important phone call and going out the back door so as not to disturb anyone, later returning through the front door with a ticket stub to get in. If the shooter had propped the door open somehow, that person might have just let themselves out to take the call, not knowing they could get back in.
They might sedate him if he was agitated, or unruly, or uncooperative. That isn't uncommon. They have nurses at jails whose job it is to administered meds to inmates-sometimes people need blood pressure medication, insulin, and psychiatric meds. Since we don't know the results of his psych eval, we don't know if he was on psych meds prior to this. I would guess that he was.
He may have propped the door open himself, using a magazine or newspaper, and nobody noticed it. He might have gotten there first, propped it open and blended into the crowd in such a way that nobody really suspected him of anything. Or perhaps he walked in, propped the door open and went out to his car, waited outside until there was a good gunfire scene, and walked in shooting people.
It is certainly legal for a jail to medicate people. He is in their custody, and they have an obligation to keep him calm for their safety and his own. If he was extremely agitated or very anxious, they might have given him something to help him sleep, something to help him crash. Often when people commit these acts they are so pumped up on adrenaline that the best thing for them is to sleep for a day or so, then wake up. Often they are mentally clearer.
Anyone can stockpile weapons. All they have to do is order them. If he was in school, he might have blown his student loan money on them, or asked his parents to help him buy a new car, etc etc., then spent the money on guns. I guess we will find out more in the coming weeks and months. I'm not saying that he absolutely 100% with certainty acted alone, I'm just saying that from what we know, it appears that he did.
I'm wondering why he dyed his hair red, when The Joker's hair was green.
