Marc Bern was a guest on this week’s Politics Unplugged, where during a recorded interview scheduled to air Sunday on Denver7, he described a warning that the theater chain received from the Department of Homeland Security on May 17, 2012.
Attorney Bern said, “There was a warning more than two months before (the Aurora Theater shooting), the Department of Homeland Security sent out a notice, called a ‘Roll Call Release,’ that said that movie theaters in the United States were potential targets by terrorists”. He goes on to say, “Now this shooter was as good as any terrorist, whether it was ISIS or just this individual, who came in to terrorize and kill individuals.”
Attorney Bern intends to use that ‘Roll Call Release’ document as evidence in the trial that begins with jury selection on Monday. “This Homeland Security warning, ‘Roll Call Release,’ was sent to NATO (National Association of Theater Owners) and then sent to various chains, along with upper management and in this case it stayed there,” said Bern. “The upper management received it, but did nothing with it to warn the various theater general managers and their immediate supervisors.”
