13. here is why I place partial blame on the university and staff

Dr. Lynne Fenton, the psychiatrist who was treating Holmes, 24, at the school, was also a key member of the university's threat assessment team


His psychiatrist was a key member of the team, not just someone who sent a memo off to the team.

Look at the timeline according to the reporting:
-He was seeing Dr. Fenton for psychiatric counseling
-She was concerned enough to inform other members of the team about him
-He fails an oral exam
-He purchases a weapon; NBC reported that he told the Dr. this as well
-He drops out

A serious career setback, followed by purchasing a weapon, then dropping out of school. You do not need to be a psychiatrist to know that is a major red flag.

The excuse they had no authority over him is a cop out. At that point they should have given all of the information to local and state authorities. They saw he was no threat to them and I believe it will come out to be similar to Penn St. They did not want CU to look bad.
