its really sad that this happend, and you cant help but get angry thinking about how this could have been evaded. The shootout started at 7 am and little people knew what was going on, the second wave of shootings in my opinion could have been prevented!!! Why would the Tech president not believe there would be a second incident!? So stupid of them!

So why are classes only cancelled for the rest of the day and tommorrow?
Why are they taking it so lightly? 33 people dead on campus in less than 5 hours and a day and a half later they go back to school?

i just feel bad by the fact that it happened but the question is "why did they do it?" by the fact the the hitman is already dead, there's many answers. i just hope that all of the families that r involved r fine.

Hopchow hind sight is twenty twenty, we have no idea what other things the administrators of the college had to deal with at that time.

Oh and Ghostless as to why the shooting started from what I have heard from ppls who go to tech, the shooter's girlfriend had been cheating on him and recently broke up with him and he went to get revenge by shooting her and then the guy she had been cheating on him with. But I think I heard something recently that said that didn't seem to be the case, though the girlfriend one was the theory that been used for most of the day.

How sad... it's hard for me to wrap my head around, something like this happening at another campus. What is it with this past year? It seems like a bunch of colleges have suffered school shootings.

Don't expect too much from the cr community. Really it just becomes annoying. You have to understand that people are lazy and refuse to read at least the last few pages. It's a shame, but it's nearly impossible to change.

jeezus, what is wrong with these people trying to target schools and students?!

So they can't get to high profile politicians/bureaucrats so they just go on a rampage to kill innocent people - grrrr!!! It makes me so angry to hear that these damned cowards would target innocent people who are JUST TRYING TO GET AN EDUCATION!!! omigod, this is really insane...They must be really really sick b*stards who crave negative attention. Couldn't they have done us all a favor and just off themselves first...(not to condone suicide..but you know what i mean...)

** my thoughts and prayers are definitely for the victims of this horrible tragedy.
I can only imagine the pain and devastation they are experiencing. I pray that such a tragedy won't happen again...(and in Virginia, of all places..)

Thanks for sharing the information. I'll definitely pass the news around to my friends and family.

i agree with wa they did, a day and a hlaf or so, but some of u are saying its not enough. thats wat im saying is rediculous, people have lives that need living


This is the post I was referring to moomoo you seemed to state that not interrupting the lives of everyone else on campus was more important than shutting the campus down immediately after the first shooting. If that wasn't your intention clarify your posts more.

It will become a race thing. Trust me.
The HS shooting. Two white boys.
What was the blame put on? Music, parents not caring for them.
Why release he's a young asian male?
What POINT is there to release that?
Simple: Make it become a race thing to get the pressure off the "big heads" backs.
You'll see this will become a race issue now because there was NO NEED to release what race he was.
