Just heard anchorette report this on pMSNBC
Stalked two female VT students, for starters. Apparently (per CNN) the main reason was that his roomie told the VT police that Cho was making suicidal statements, so they got a judge to issue a temporary detention order and they took him to Access, a counseling center in Blacksburg.
Yes, the May sweeps start next week.
I find it interesting they are leaving the parents alone. What did they know and what did they tell that we still don’t know.
Why would the FBI have it? Is it because he used a firearm? Fed laws were broken?
Sorry for the dumb question.
He should have never been accepted to VPI..
I hate to place blame, but this case cries out for it..
It probably should be.
My recollection from reading the NICS forms is that the disqualifier is being *adjudicated in a court of law* to be mentally ill within the last 3 or 5 years (??).
Not going to a marriage counselor of taking Ambien for sleeping.
Court adjudication of mental illness should be entered into NICS records.
Why didn;t that happen?
When you consider that they suspend and/or expel six year old boys for bringing a plastic knife to school, they handcuff and arrest 6 year old girls for kicking a teacher in the shin, they expel 7 year old boys for bringing a butter knife to cut his pb&j sandwich with, and they expel 6 year old boys for "sexual harrassment", how in hell can anybody excuse the V.T. president for not ridding the university of this dangerous, demented scumbag Cho? He was twice accused of stalking women, was booted from English class for writing frightening, macabre, bloody poetry, was recommended to psychiatry by a teacher, was considered to be "very mean" by another teacher, (who also said she feared his 'meanstreak'), was known to have been suicidal by the staff, etc, etc -- YET they allow him to stay. It's a damn shame that he wasn't caught with a plastic butter knife, they might have given him the boot then.
I hope a few high placed staff get raked over the coals for this, and the police as well. There was a two hour lag between his first and second murder spree and the University wasn't locked down in between killing sprees. The whole thing totally reeks of PC liberal staff repeatedly letting this guy off the hook, incompetent 'security' officers, and bumbling, incompetent local cops screwing up the whole affair.
One day dead and half of his head blown-off!
Yeah, he's a one-off all right. Anybody who claims they can fit him in a standard profile is blowing smoke.
“Whats the frequency, Keith (Olberman)?”
DANGIT! You beat me to it.
its Columbine all over again.
and as with Columbine, the cover-up is taking shape as we speak.
did you see that speaker practically run outta there clobberin himself w/ the mic.
Sometime after he killed two people in a dormitory but before he slaughtered 30 more in a classroom building Monday morning, Cho Seung-Hui sent NBC News a rambling communication and videos about his grievances, the network said Wednesday.
Network officials turned the material over to the FBI and said they would not immediately disclose its contents pending the agencys review beyond characterizing the material as disturbing. It included a written communication, photographs and video.
The network said it would release a statement shortly.
I’d venture no formal Islamic connection but a copycat. He was too much a loner and knew he was ostracized.
>I just read his McBeef play.<
A little juvenile for a 23 year old. In fact, a little juvenile for a juvenile.
