DENVER (AP) -- The family of a man who was among 12 people shot and killed in a Colorado movie theater rampage is thanking the Aurora police chief and his staff for their "kindness and compassion" after the shooting.

In the letter dated Aug. 7, 24-year-old Alex Teves' family told Chief Dan Oates his hospitality following the July 20 shootings was a "God send." The letter, written by Alex Teves' father, Tom Teves, on behalf of the family, also specifically thanked several community members for their support.

The family from Phoenix wrote, "from the moment we arrived we were treated with dignity, respect, and kindness that was overly gracious and generous."

Teves died while shielding his girlfriend from gunfire during a midnight showing of the new Batman movie. The shooting also left 58 people injured.

    Several wittnesses reported multiple shooters. The suspects brain is completely fried, cameras are no longer allowed in the courtroom. First his hair was green, then orange? There are cameras behind the theatre and emergency exit doors only open outward, they can't be kicked in. Several wittnesses saw a second person on the opposite side open the rear door and make motions. If he boobytrapped his apartment and it was so sophisticated, why did he warn the police after killing all those people? There are several witnesses on You tube that are clearly actors - search "Chris Ramos fake witness" and decide for yourself. Remember our government gave THOUSANDS of weapons to the Mexican Drug Cartels. This is a FALSE FLAG. Listen to the emergency responder recordings. Some Law Enforcement in Arapahoe county KNOW THE TRUTH. Come forward it is your moral obligation as an American. This stinks, don't believe the media. Do your own research. Out.
