A survivor of the "Dark Knight" massacre has publicly called for the alleged shooter to suffer the death penalty by firing squad.

Carli Richards, who escaped the infamous July 20 Batman screening scarred with multiple bullet wounds, said that such a sentence for suspect James Holmes "would be totally justified," according to TMZ.

"Just injecting him is painless," Richards, 22, told the website. "I had enough needles in me that night to know that a needle isn't that bad. I want him to see what it feels like ... I wish someone would shoot him and let him bleed out."

On Monday, prosecutors charged Holmes with 24 counts of first-degree murder and 116 counts of attempted murder.

Andy Kahan, a victims advocate based in Houston, Texas, called the comments "not shocking."

"You're going to have some victims who push for a slow excruciating death and some who push for life in prison without parole," Kahan told The Huffington Post. "They feel that it is even more horrific than death itself, knowing that you are never going to get out and will never have any contact with a living person again."

Kahan added that survivors, like Richards, are the "only unwilling participants in the criminal justice system."

"Everyone else -- the lawyers, judges, police -- chose their role," he said. "Nobody has ever asked to be a victim."

Carol Chambers, the district attorney and head prosecutor on the Aurora case, is an outspoken supporter of the death penalty, according to Denver's Westword blog. Her office plans to interview victims' families and survivors to determine whether to pursue capital punishment against Holmes.

Richard's boyfriend, Chris Townson, was also at the theater when Holmes allegedly opened fire on the audience, killing 12 people and wounding 58 others.

A fundraiser -- Care For Carli -- is collecting money to pay for medical bills and counseling.

Richards' Facebook profile -- where she calls herself Carli Dirtyrotten -- features a batman-themed memorial banner for victims of the Aurora massacre.
