Alleged Las Vegas Shooters as the Joker and Harley Quinn
The two suspects in Sunday’s shooting spree in Las Vegas that claimed the lives of two police officers and a shopper have been identified as Jerad and Amanda Miller.
The two were extreme “pro-gun and anti-government views on their Facebook pages and who had spent time at the ranch of Cliven Bundy.”
As we learn more about the two, whats stuck out to me is the iconography of the Joker, as posts to Jerad’s Facebook page, but even the two dressed up as the Joker and Harley Quinn.
The Joker was also the comic book character James Holmes clung to when he shot up a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado in 2012.
Are we seeing the DC Comics character appropriated like the V for Vendetta mask as an icon for deranged individuals?
