People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has sent a letter to Arapahoe County, Colo. Sheriff Grayson Robinson encouraging him to mandate an all-vegetable diet for James Holmes, the man accused of opening fire on a crowded movie theatre during “The Dark Knight Rises” midnight premiere.

Newkirk said in a news release. “PETA is asking Sheriff Robinson to lead the way by placing James Holmes on a humane and cost-effective vegetarian diet, which will save lives and public funds.”
