"In other news, Cho was offered an anchor job at MSBC, as he was judged saner and more coherent than Keith Obermann."

I don’t quite get a handle on this Cho

Yeah, he's a one-off all right. Anybody who claims they can fit him in a standard profile is blowing smoke.

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 agency’s review beyond characterizing the material as “disturbing.” It included a written communication, photographs and video.

The network said it would release a statement shortly.

Its called liberalism, aka political correctness. Nobody wants to harass a minority, or appear to be.

Hey, they are always asking that about Republicans. Turn about is fair play.

If he snail-mailed a package Monday morning, MSLSD probably didn’t get it until this morning. At that point, the proper thing to do is contact the authorities and turn it over to them. I wouldn’t assume some sort of ratings conspiracy on their part...if this nutbar mailed them some sort of screed and a videotape or CD, it’d probably take it two days to get from Blacksburg up to New Jersey and navigate its way through the mailroom maze.

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.

I would suspect they have spent quite a bit of time with them, looking for answers, background etc...

Norris Hall was an engineering building, and engineering/science majors have a higher proportion of foreign—mostly Indian/Asian—students than liberal arts majors. (Although one of the four classrooms he shot up was holding a German class.)

Speculation now that he sent the package during the two hour pause between shooting. Per NBC now.

“original” in the hands of the FBI?? So they are admitting they made copies??? sheesh

Maybe.... wouldn't you? Regardless, they turned the originals over to law enforcement, as they should have.

I'm interested in the content, I find this a fascinating development. He apparently mailed this thing in the two hours between the shootings.

I'm guessing he's a sympathizer. I'd still check the local mosques to see if there is a connection.

Thanks for that info, CNN just had the Justice that took care of this ct case, he would only talk in generalities, and said that since he stayed in hospt voluntarily, it would not be a part of his official state record.

I think that is correct, (don’t quote me,lol).

Should be interesting to get more info.

Interesting to find out exactly what time NBC got this message......

Even more interesting to find out WHO NBC told after they got the message... Or if they told anyone.

And what will be telling will be what the REST of the MSM says about NBC.

After all, EVERYBODY in the MSM promptly refused to mention that the killers at Columbine were homosexual/devil/spirit worshipers who aimed and killed primarily Christians by direct shots to their heads ...

That explains why there are no records of him being committed

LATE DEVELOPMENT:
Per Brian Williams blog on MSNBC page. He says the package was received today, but they are reporting it was sent yesterday between first and second shootings. Inconsistency, coverup, you decide>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>NBC News has indeed received what I would call a “multimedia manifesto” from the gunman. We received it today, and immediately handed it over to Federal law enforcement authorities. We are still going over our own copy — its a lot of material — we are talking with law enforcement, our own standards people — and Pete Williams, our Justice Correspondent, will join me live on the broadcast to go through the material.

"Cho Seung-Hui in 2005 was declared mentally ill by a Virginia special justice, who declared he was "an imminent danger" to himself, a court document states."

This is from the CNN website. Nothing about "immiment danger to others," and the order was temporary.

I’m coming into this thread from the back door, so my first thought may well have been brought up already - it’s my guess that his “manifesto”, and probably the photos were already in police hands....95% chance he composed it all on his computer, which has been in police hands since Monday.

If this is the case, what showed up at NBC is nothing new to authorities.
