Looks like the guy had been committed before and was a total wack job. Teachers threatening to resign unless something was done, crazy essays, etc. I see psych eval being added to the background check for purchase. This is one big shit sandwich and we're all gonna have to take a bite.

Yea, that is nuts. I've been hearing about all that on the news today and the package of stuff that NBC apparently received from Cho. I wonder if my GFL application process will be slowed merely because I live near a college campus.

Yeah, my first thought when I saw that was "Oh, this isn't good."

I thought "history of mental illness" was already a pre-requisite that is searched, or maybe that is just for GFL..

This thread has the most appropriate title for what I am about to post.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18169776/

Foxnews is airing the videos now. This is one crazy mother fukcer.

In the pictures it is now apparent that he used, or at least had hollow points.

Yeah, that dude was well past the point of being out of his mind. For an English major... how he was talking... psssyychhooooo.

Hearing his story just validates every reason I have for carrying a gun.

Cho apparently took time out of his rampage to send the package to the network. It bore a U.S. Postal Service stamp recording that it had been received at a Virginia post office at 9:01 a.m. ET Monday, about an hour and 45 minutes after Cho shot two people in the West Ambler Johnston residence hall on the Virginia Tech campus and shortly before Cho entered Norris Hall, where he killed 30 more people.
Whoa, HE WENT TO THE FREAKING POST OFFICE

Somehow this makes me think a lot less of the VTPD.[/code]

just watched the video on CNN.

WOW

This guy lived in his own world. And apparently he was on the bottom of that world too. I have seen some crazy stuff, but that is a special kind of crazy. I guess with 6.5 billion people, there's bound to be a few that are wired wrong.

I've got a final to write, but I can't stop thinking of that crazy little pos. That's just insane.

Everyone notice the class warfare/jealousy bent? Odd, considering his parents were dirt poor before they immigrated and started a dry cleaning business.

You had everything you wanted. Your Mercedes wasn’t enough, you brats. Your golden necklaces weren’t enough, you snobs. Your trust fund wasn’t enough. Your vodka and Cognac weren’t enough. All your debaucheries weren’t enough. Those weren’t enough to fulfill your hedonistic needs. You had everything.
HELLO, you were a student at one of the finest educational institutions in the world.

Guess he watched too much Rosie. I noticed the reference to hollow points yesterday, and was waiting with bated breath for the "super deadly bullets" crap to stream from the media.

Thanks to you, I die like Jesus Christ, to inspire generations of the weak and the defenseless people.
Yep, because religious icons go around whacking people whose greatest sin that day was getting an extra biscuit at breakfast. Way to go, psycho.

If what I read is true and he had not only 2 restraining orders against him and was committed to a mental hospital, how the hell did he LEGALLY purchase those firearms?

He got tabbed as a "danger to himself," not to others, which is apparently what triggers the creation of records in the criminal database that would turn up on the check.

And I believe he was not involuntarily committed, but voluntarily committed for assessment. The ex-cops may have a better idea, but I believe it's kinda like how they get you to convict yourself of DUI: either voluntarily commit yourself, or we will charge you with X.

another point I am amazed at is the school allowing him to remain on campus. I havent been in college in a while, but heck our student conduct would throw our ass out of the school if we stalked anybody, or showed conduct such as stalking, disturbing written material in which even the teachers approached counselours.

So many factors and past actions, I wonder what their code of ethics for students states.

well guess I found out why he was allowed to stay in school! From the boortz site.

Did you know that both houses of the Virginia legislature unanimously passed legislation within the past year or so that barred Virginia colleges and universities from expelling a student on the basis of mental instability? Virginia colleges and universities were also banned from suspending or expelling a student because of an attempted suicide or the expression of suicidal thoughts? Cho committed suicide on Monday. He took 31 people with him. The university knew he was a threat. Nothing was done.


wow that surprises me a little.

OK...That makes sense, in a senseless way.. :roll: There were tooo many signs here he WAS a danger to others...Which burns me up! Again , another situation of the results of a passive society....

One piece of legislature gets tossed out which would have allowed carry on campus, and another piece of legislation that keeps psycho's in school...Nice example of checks and balances... :banghead:
