Virginia Tech Shooting

Gunman Who Killed 32 Lived in Va. Tech Dormitory


By Ian Shapira, Tom Jackman and Howard Schneider
Washington Post Staff Writers
Tuesday, April 17, 2007; 8:32 AM

BLACKSBURG, Va., April 17 -- Virginia Tech president Charles W. Steger said today that the gunman who rampaged through the campus on Monday leaving 32 dead was a student who lived in one of the school's dormitories.

The name of the assailant has not been publicly released, but Steger, in an interview on CNN, said he was an Asian male who was "a resident in one of our dormitories."

A range of sources, including federal and local officials with knowledge of the case, have told the Washington Post that the assailant was of Korean descent. His parents live in Fairfax County, one official there said.

Authorities are expected to identify the gunman at a news conference this morning, the first official event in a day of mourning that includes a 2 p.m. convocation service with President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush in attendance. A student vigil is scheduled for 8 p.m. on the university drill field.

Officials today lifted a blockade of the campus, though classes have been canceled and staffing is at a minimum.

Along with killing 32, the gunman wounded several dozen during a incident that unfolded over several hours on Monday morning.

In a briefing this morning, Scott Hill, a spokesperson for Montgomery Regional Hospital, said that the 12 patients at the facility and at the Lewis-Gale Medical Center were all in stable condition. Several had been upgraded from critical overnight. Three other patients have discharged.

Defending the univesity's response to the violence, Steger said officials at first believed the incident was limited to the West Ambler Johnston Hall dormitory, where two people were shot around 7 a.m.

"It was characterized as being confined to that dormitory. We thought we had it under control. I don't think anyone could have predicted," that two hours later a gunman would attack across campus, inside the Norris Hall engineering building, Steger told CNN. The gunman killed 30 people and himself inside Norris Hall.


Gunman Identified as Massacre at Virginia Tech Enters Second Day


By RICHARD ESPOSITO and DAVID SCHOETZ

April 17, 2007 ? Seung Hui Cho, a permanent resident of the United States, a Korean national and a Virginia
Tech student has been identified as the gunman in the shootings that left 33 people dead on the Virginia
Tech campus Monday, ABC News has learned.

The student left a "disturbing note" before killing two people in a dorm room, returning to his own room to
re-arm and entering a classroom building on the other side of campus to continue his rampage, sources said.

Cho's identitiy has been confirmed with a positive fingerprint match on the guns used in the rampage and with
immigration materials. It is believed that he was the shooter in both incidents yesterday. Sources say Cho
was carrying a backpack that contained receipts for a March purchase of a Glock 9 mm pistol, sources said.
Witnesses had also told authorities that the shooter was carrying a backpack. Sections of chain similar to
those used to lock the main doors at Norris Hall, the site of the second shooting that left 31 dead, were found
inside a Virginia Tech dormitory, sources confirmed to ABC News.


The Face of a Killer: Cho Seung-Hui

(Blacksburg, VA) Cho Seung-Hui, 23, a senior studying English, has been identified as the shooter in a rampage that left 33 people dead on the campus of Virginia Tech.

The body of Cho Seung-Hui was found among the 31 dead found in an engineering hall.

Police identified Cho, a South Korean native and a resident alien who lived in Centerville, Va., as the shooter by linking the fingerprints at the scene to those on his immigration documents. Cho entered the country through Detroit with his family in 1992, at the age of eight.

Virginia Gunman Identified as a Student

By CHRISTINE HAUSER
Published: April 17, 2007
The gunman who killed 32 people and himself on the campus of Virginia Polytechnic Institute Monday was identified today as a student who lived in a dormitory on campus but kept to himself.

Law enforcement authorities said the gunman was Cho Seung-Hui, 23, a South Korean who was a resident alien in the United States and in his senior year as an English major.

Mr. Cho was described by fellow students in television interviews broadcast today as being thorough・as he moved through the classrooms opening fire. He was wearing an outfit that resembled a boy scout and trying to push through doors that were barricaded by students.

In a photograph distributed by the police after his identity was released, Mr. Cho is shown wearing eyeglasses with close cropped hair, staring directly into the camera with little expression.

At least 15 were also injured after the two shooting attacks at the university on Monday during three hours of horror and chaos on this sprawling campus.

In a news conference today, authorities said ballistic tests showed that one of two weapons found in Norris Hall, a classroom building where most of the killing took place, had also been used in the other location, West Ambler Johnston Hall, a 900-student freshman dormitory where the first shootings took place.

Mr. Cho moved to the United States with his family as a grade school student in 1992, government officials in South Korea said.

While he had a residence established in Centreville, Va., Mr. Cho was living on campus in Harper Residence Hall. He was described as a 斗oner・by the university痴 associate vice president, Harry Hincker, on CNN.

It was the deadliest shooting rampage in American history and came nearly eight years to the day after 13 people died at Columbine High School in Colorado at the hands of two disaffected students who then killed themselves.

The police and witnesses said some victims were executed while other students were hurt jumping from upper-story windows of the classroom building where most of the killings occurred. After the second round of killings, the gunman killed himself, the police said.

Investigators were trying to sift through what Col. W. Steve Flaherty, the state police superintendent, described as a horrific crime scene・at Norris Hall, where the shooting had caused tremendous chaos and panic. A 9-millimeter handgun and 22-caliber handgun were recovered from the building

Personal belongings were strewn about on the second floor. Victims were found in four classrooms and a stairwell.

He know that there were a number of heroic events took place,・he said.

Today, the university痴 president, Charles W. Steger, said that the campus would host a convocation attended by President Bush later in the day. Classes have been canceled for the week to allow students to grieve. Norris Hall would be closed completely for the semester.

的 want to assure you that we are doing everything possible to move forward,・he said.

Survivors told dramatic stories of the events.

Zach Petkewicz, a student, said he barricaded a classroom door to keep the gunman out, and the gunman shot through the door.

He and two others got up, threw a couple of tables in front of it and had to physically hold it there while there were gunshots going on,・he said on CNN. He came to our door and tried the handle. He couldn稚 get it in because we were pushing up against it. He tried to force his way in and got the door to open up about six inches and then we just lunged at it and closed it back up. That痴 when he backed up and shot twice into the middle of the door, thinking we were up against it trying to get him out.・/p>

Mr. Petkewicz said the gunman reloaded and 徒ept firing down the hall.・/p>

He seemed very thorough about it,・said a student, Erin Sheehan, who said in an interview with CNN that she was in a classroom where the gunman opened fire, and then later tried to break his way back into the room as students inside barricaded the door.

Joseph Cacioppo, a surgeon at Montgomery Regional Hospital who treated some of the injured, said on CNN that the injuries showed that the gunman was brutal.・None of the injured that he treated had less than three to four wounds in them,・he said.

According to the college newspaper, The Collegiate Times, many of the deaths took place in a German class in Norris Hall.

At least 17 of the wounded were still in the hospital this morning. One of them was the girlfriend of a student, Paul Geiger, 21, who was at Montgomery Regional Hospital this morning to visit her.

Korean student named as Virginia Tech massacre gunman

A South Korean student was today named as responsible for the deadliest shooting massacre in American history, in which 32 people were shot dead at a university in Virginia yesterday.

The body of Cho Seung-Hui, 23, was found among a group of his victims in a blood-spattered classroom at Virginia Tech university, said Superintendent Steve Flaherty of the Montgomery County Police today.

A Glock 9mm handgun and a .22-calibre handgun were found at the scene. Other bodies were strewn in at least three other second floor classrooms and in a stairwell in the Norris Hall classroom block.

Supt Flaherty confirmed that the same gun had been used in both the classroom shootings and another murderous incident two hours earlier, when two students were shot dead in their dormitory half a mile away on the other side of the university campus.


'Question Mark' Killer Quietly Seethed With Rage

Thursday, April 19, 2007

Cho Seung-Hui, the gunman who apparently killed 32 people and himself Monday morning at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, Va., seems to have been a shy, quiet type seething with rage at unspecified tormentors.

Virginia Tech police on Tuesday morning identified Cho, 23, as the man whose body had been found in Norris Hall, site of the worst shooting spree in American history, lying next to two semi-automatic pistols.

He apparently had scrawled the words "ISMAIL AX" on the inside of one arm, according to the Chicago Tribune, which may be a reference to the Islamic account of the Biblical sacrifice of Abraham.

A rambling note left in Cho's dorm room reportedly railed for several pages against "rich kids" and "debauchery" and "deceitful charlatans" on campus, and at one point states, "You caused me to do this."

An English professor said Cho's creative-writing work was so disturbing that he had been referred to on-campus counseling services.

In one class, he refused to speak and signed his name using a question mark. Fellow pupils called him "The Question Mark Kid."


STALKER WHO TURNED KILLER

STUDENTS KNEW HE WAS TIME BOMB
By ANDREA PEYSER, LEELA de KRETSER, and DAVID K. LI
April 18, 2007 -- He was a chubby-cheeked campus creep who stalked at least three pretty
co-eds - terrifying one enough that her parents called the cops on him - before he wound up
unleashing Virginia Tech's bloodbath.

"I stopped telling friends to come to my room, especially girls," the shaken roommate of mass
murderer Cho Seung-Hui, identified only as John, revealed in a chilling interview yesterday.

One night earlier this year, the twisted Cho "closed the door [of their room] and turned to me and said,
'Hey, you want to know why I went up to that girl's dorm room the other night?' " John said.

"He said he wanted to go up there and look her in the eye to see how cool she was . . .
And when he looked in her eyes, he saw promiscuity."

College gunman disturbed teachers, classmates

President comforts Virginia Tech after student kills 32 and himself

By Alex Johnson
Reporter
MSNBC
Updated: 10:54 p.m. ET April 17, 2007
The gunman who shot 32 people to death before killing himself at a Virginia university was described Tuesday as a depressed and deeply disturbed young man whose “grotesque” creative writing projects led a professor to refer him for psychological counseling.

A day after the man, a 23-year-old senior English major, carried out the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, President Bush joined dozens of state and campus leaders to bring comfort to the students, faculty and staff of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg.

“This is a day of sadness for our entire nation,” the president said.

Thirty-three people were confirmed dead after the bloodbath Monday, including the gunman, whom police identified as Cho Seung-Hui (pronounced Choh Suhng-whee), of Centreville, Va., a resident alien who immigrated to the United States from South Korea in 1992. Nine students remained in hospitals in stable condition Tuesday, MSNBC-TV’s Tucker Carlson reported.

Col. Steven Flaherty, superintendent of the Virginia State Police, said investigators searched Cho’s room in Harper Residence Hall and took away numerous documents. He would not describe the nature of the documents but said there was no evidence that Cho had left behind a suicide note.

The Washington Post and The New York Times, citing law enforcement sources, reported on their Web sites Tuesday night that investigators had found a rambling and somewhat incoherent note in Cho’s dorm room.

“It’s sort of a manifesto” attacking rich, spoiled students, one of the sources told The Post.

A second note was found near Cho’s body, also containing obscenities and denunciations of “rich kids,” the source told The Post.

It could not immediately be determined when the notes were written.

In a court affidavit seeking the search warrant, investigators said that when they discovered Cho’s body Monday in the classroom building where most of his victims were killed, they also found a “bomb threat note ... directed at engineering school department buildings.”

Police said Tuesday that there had been bomb threats on campus over the past two weeks but that they had not determined a link to the shootings.

After the shootings, all campus entrances were closed, and classes were canceled for the rest of the week.

Parents ignored administrators’ requests to stay away for now and flooded into Blacksburg to be with their children, NBC News’ Don Teague reported. Every hotel room within miles of the campus was booked Tuesday.

Man alarmed instructors, classmates
A Virginia Tech professor told NBC News that Cho’s creative writing was so disturbing that she referred him to the school’s counseling service, but he would not go. The professor, Lucinda Roy, the English Department’s director of creative writing, would not comment at length on Cho’s writings, saying only that in general they “seemed very angry.”

“I kept saying, ‘Please go to counseling; I will take you to counseling,’ because he was so depressed,” Roy said. But “I was told [by counselors] that you can’t force anybody to go over ... so their hands were tied, too.”

Fellow students in a playwriting class with Cho also noticed the dark and disturbing nature of his compositions.

“His writing, the plays, were really morbid and grotesque,” Stephanie Derry, a senior English major, told the campus newspaper, The Collegiate Times.

“I remember one of them very well. It was about a son who hated his stepfather. In the play, the boy threw a chainsaw around and hammers at him. But the play ended with the boy violently suffocating the father with a Rice Krispy treat,” Derry said.

Otherwise, Cho was a young man who apparently left little impression in the Virginia Tech community. Few of his fellow residents of Harper Hall said they knew the gunman, who kept to himself.

“He can’t have been an outgoing kind of person,” Meredith Daly, 19, of Danville, Va., told MSNBC.com’s Bill Dedman.

In Centreville, the suburb of Washington where Cho’s family lived in an off-white, two-story townhouse, people who knew Cho concurred that he kept to himself.

“He was very quiet, always by himself,” said Abdul Shash, a neighbor. Shash said Cho spent a lot of his free time playing basketball and would not respond if someone greeted him. He described the family as quiet.

Killer's Note: 'You Caused Me to Do This'

Seung-Hui Cho, the student who killed 32 people and then himself yesterday, left a long and "disturbing" note in his dorm room at Virginia Tech, say law enforcement sources.

He also wrote at least two violent plays for an English course that worried his professor and several classmates.

Sources described the note, which runs several pages, as beginning in the present tense and then shifting to the past. It contains rhetoric explaining Cho's actions and says, "You caused me to do this," the sources told ABC News.

Sources say Cho, 23, killed two people in a dorm room, returned to his own dorm room where he re-armed and left the note, then went to a classroom building on the other side of campus. There, he killed 30 more people in four classrooms before shooting himself in the head.

Witnesses say he was stone-faced as he opened fire. Law-enforcement sources say he may have had a romantic interest in a young woman who was found dead after the first shootings.


Violent Plays

Lucinda Roy, a co-director of the creative writing program at Virginia Tech, taught Cho in a poetry class in fall of 2005 and later worked with him one-on-one after she became concerned about his behavior and themes in his writings.

Roy spoke outside her home Tuesday afternoon, saying that there was nothing explicit in Cho's writings, but that threats were there under the surface.

Roy told ABC News that Cho seemed "extraordinarily lonely--the loneliest person I have ever met in my life." She said he wore sunglasses indoors, with a cap pulled low over his eyes. He whispered, took 20 seconds to answer questions, and took cellphone pictures of her in class. Roy said she was concerned for her safety when she met with him.

She said she notified authorities about Cho, but said she was told that there would be too many legal hurdles to intervene. She said she asked him to go to counseling, but he never did.

One play attributed to him, called "Richard McBeef," describes a 13-year-old boy who accuses his stepfather of pedophilia, and ends with the boy's death.

In another, called "Mr. Brownstone," three high-school students face an abusive teacher.

"I wanna kill him," says one character.

"I wanna watch him bleed like the way he made us kids bleed," says another.

The two plays were posted on AOL after a staffer named Ian MacFarlane, a December 2006 graduate of Virginia Tech, brought them to his editors' attention.

MacFarlane said he was in a class with Cho in which students were required to post their plays online for peer review and comment.

AOL editors verified the authenticity of Cho's works before posting them, according to Alysia Lew of AOL Corporate Communications.

At a late-afternoon news conference, police said they had searched Cho's dorm room. "There were considerable writings that were reviewed," said Col. Steven Flaherty, Superintendent of the Virginia State Police.


A 'Troubled' Young Man
Some news accounts have suggested that Cho had a history of antidepressant use, but senior federal officials tell ABC News that they can find no record of him in the governments files on controlled substances. This does not completely rule out prescription drug use, including samples from a physician, drugs obtained through illegal Internet sources, or a gap in computer databases, but the sources say theirs is a reasonably complete search.

(NOTE: Some readers may have inferred from an earlier edition of this story that the federal government keeps a comprehensive record of all prescriptions. The Drug Enforcement Agency says it does track prescriptions of so-called controlled substances -- including some mood-altering medications -- but not all prescriptions made in the United States.)

Cho, born in South Korea, was a legal resident alien of the United States. He was a senior at Virginia Tech, majoring in English.

Sources tell ABC News Cho bought his first gun, a Glock 9 millimeter handgun, on March 13; they say he bought his second, a Walther .22 caliber pistol, within the last week. The serial numbers on both guns had been filed off, they said.

Authorities found the receipt for the 9 millimeter handgun in Cho's backpack. They say the bag also contained two knives and additional ammunition for the two guns.

Legal permanent resident aliens may purchase firearms in the state of Virginia. A resident alien must, however, provide additional identification to prove he or she is a resident of the state.

Sections of chain similar to those used to lock the main doors at Norris Hall, the site of the second shooting that left 31 dead, were also found inside a Virginia Tech dormitory, sources confirmed to ABC News.

Two-Hour Gap Between Shootings

Police say Cho killed two people in West Ambler Johnston Hall, a dormitory near his own, shortly after 7:00 a.m. Monday. Then, two hours later, he opened fire in Norris Hall, a classroom building across campus.

Reporters continued to ask today why administrators did not cancel classes after the first shooting, and why it took more than two hours to inform the university community via e-mail about the first incident. The first e-mail notifying students of the dorm shooting was not sent by the school until 9:24 a.m -- by which time the second shooting was already over.

According to President Charles Steger, the administration locked down West Ambler Johnston Hall dormitory after the first shooting. But he said classes weren't canceled because the shooting was believed to be tied to a domestic dispute and campus police believed the shooter had left the campus.


Virginia Tech shakes Korean campuses

By Donald Kirk

SEOUL - In the student center of Korea University, third-year student Kim Woo-ree wondered if some protective mothers will now be more determined than ever to discourage their children from studying in the US.

"I heard about one high-school boy who got accepted on early admission to an Ivy League university in the States but now he's not going to go there," she said. "Some Korean moms are reluctant to send boys to the States and even more reluctant to send girls."

Kim, 20, who was sent to secondary school in Hong Kong, said, "Most Korean people these days are worried Americans will see all Koreans as that kind of psychopath." Once Americans "get such an impression", she fears, "it's not that easy to get rid of".

Such fears dominate conversation on the campus as students, facing exams next week, take time to read about the tragedy in which South Korean-born student Cho Seung-hui killed 32 people at Virginia Tech before turning his gun on himself. They worry about the implications, the reasons, and what the tragedy means for Korea as well as the US.

"Now people hesitate to go to the US," said Kim Min-wook, 25, a fourth-year student. "They are looking for another country. Maybe they want to study English. If they have a chance, they go elsewhere."

For him, the immediate future is clear. After he graduates in June, he plans to continue studies in England. The US, he hears, "is more dangerous than Canada, Australia or England." Students speculated as to some of the reasons.

"We hear it's not prohibited to buy a gun in the US," said Hwang In-yeol, a 25-year-old fourth-year student. "I think the company that makes guns has the strongest lobby in the US."

The ease with which Cho bought two pistols is incredible to students like Kim and Hwang. They both served more than two years in the Korean army - the reason why they and other young men in their last two years in college are slightly older than students in other countries - and they have had fairly wide experience firing rifles while on training exercises.

They are sure, however, that America would be a much safer place if guns were banned. "If the US prohibits selling guns," said Hwang, "gangs will no longer have them."

While speculating on such issues, though, some students - and older Koreans - are confident the "accident", as it is commonly known, will fade into history and Koreans will continue to go to the US in large numbers.

"For a while people will not be willing to go there," said Seo Ji-yeong, 20, "but after a while, it's going to be, maybe not forgotten but as if nothing happened. People will forget. People who have a strong will to study will go to the States no mater what."

An assistant professor of peace studies, Oh Young-dahl, strolling across the campus after a class, reflected a widespread view when he called it "kind of an accidental case" even though episodes of violence "happen so often in the States compared with other countries like Korea".

Professor: Shooter's writing dripped with anger

POSTED: 12:27 a.m. EDT, April 18, 2007
BLACKSBURG, Virginia (CNN) -- A year and a half before before Cho Seung-Hui went on a deadly shooting spree on the campus of Virginia Tech, a professor was so concerned about his anger that she took him out of another teacher's creative writing class and taught him one-on-one.

The former chairwoman of Virginia Tech's English department, Lucinda Roy, said the anger Cho expressed was palpable if not explicit.

Cho, an English major, never wrote about guns or killing people, she said. But his writing was disturbing enough that she went to police and other university officials to seek help. (Watch the professor tell how her student frightened her )

"The threats seemed to be underneath the surface," she said. "They were not explicit, and that was the difficulty the police had."

"My argument was that he seemed so disturbed that we needed to do something about this."

Without a clear threat, nothing could be done, however, and Roy made the decision to instruct him away from other students.

"I just felt I was between a rock and a hard place," she said. "It seemed the only alternative was to send him back to the classroom, and I wouldn't do it."

While teaching Cho one-on-one, Roy said she "made it clear that that kind of writing was unacceptable and he needed to write in another voice."

She also said that she encouraged Cho to go to counseling, and believed that he may have "gotten tired of hearing it" and begun to tell her he had been going when, perhaps, he had not.

Cho was an intelligent student, Roy said, but he left students and professors alike unnerved in his presence.

Police say Cho killed at least 30 people and wounded 17 others before killing himself in Norris Hall, an engineering classroom building, Monday.

According to a search warrant, police found a note in Norris Hall containing a bomb threat directed at engineering buildings on the campus.

During a three-week period before the shootings, the university received two other bomb threat notes, and police are investigating to see if those threats were related to the shooting. (Watch how the note threatens engineering buildings)

It's also believed the 23-year-old student killed two other people earlier that day in a dormitory on campus.

Virginia Tech Police Chief Wendell Flinchum said ballistics tests show that one of the two guns recovered at Norris Hall was used at the dorm.

Gunman accused of sending women 'annoying' messages

Blacksburg, Va. -- Authorities disclosed Wednesday that more than a year before the Virginia Tech massacre,
Cho Seung-Hui was accused of sending unwanted phone calls and computer messages to two women.
They considered the messages "annoying," not threatening, and neither pressed charges, Virginia Tech Police
Chief Wendell Flinchum said.


After the second complaint about Cho's behavior, the university obtained a temporary detention order and
took Cho away because an acquaintance reported he might be suicidal, authorities said. Police did not
identify the acquaintance.
Neither woman was among the victims in the massacre, police said.

Cho Seung-hui's Roommates Say They Barely Knew Him

Cho once claimed he had a supermodel girlfriend who he named Jelly. She called him "Spanky."
It was all a figment of his disturbed mind.

Karan Grewal, another of Cho's roommates, saw Cho in the bathroom on the morning of the rampage.
He was standing in the bathroom in his boxer shorts, brushing his teeth. Grewal said good morning.
Cho didn't answer.

"Nothing seemed out of the ordinary," Grewal said.

The young men who shared his suite all felt that Cho was odd. But what they didn't know was that his
disturbing behavior was well known to college authorities.

Cops say two female students complained last year that Cho was harassing them and he was taken to the
campus counseling center after he threatened to commit suicide. He was later committed to a mental
institution. His roommates had no idea.

South Korea's Collective Guilt


Most Koreans don't regard Cho Seung-Hui as a "typical Korean" since he spent the bulk of his life
immersed in American culture. Still, a collective sense of regret and guilt was palpable today due to
the strong tendency of Koreans to perceive the tragedy in terms of Korean nationalism, in which the
group trumps the individual. "It's a notion of collective responsibility," says Mike Breen, the author of
The Koreans. When a Korean does something wonderful, the country rejoices, but when one of its own
goes off the rails, like Cho Seung-Hui, there's a collective sense of shame and burden. So much so that
South Korea's Ambassador to the U.S., Lee Tae Shik, pledged to fast for 32 days to show his sorrow today.
"I can smell a collective sense of guilt," says Lim Jie-Hyun, a history professor at Hangyang University
in Seoul. "There is confusion [in Korea] between individual responsibility and national responsibility."

中略
This kind of nationalistic response can have an opposite effect as well ? when the roles are reversed. In 2002,
when two U.S soldiers accidentally ran over two schoolgirls with a tank north of Seoul, anti-American
sentiment was widespread in Korea. Some restaurants even hung signboards reading "No Americans"
rather than "No Soldiers Allowed." For weeks, thousands of Koreans staged protests against American
soldiers, while some Korean media even suggested that the girl's deaths could have been deliberate.


Tech gunman shot victims over 100 times

By KRISTEN GELINEAU, Associated Press Writer
Mon Apr 23, 3:02 AM ET
BLACKSBURG, Va. - Virginia Tech gunman Seung-Hui Cho was as mysterious in death
as he was in life, leaving behind few clues for medical examiners. Dr. William Massello,
the assistant state medical examiner based in Roanoke, said Sunday that Cho died from
a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his temple after firing enough shots to wound his 32
victims more than 100 times.

My wife (a Korean medical student in Germany) just told me on the phone that the Yuhaksaeng over there are feting the killer as a national hero…
http://www.rjkoehler.com/2007/04/17/virginia-tech-shooter-a-korean-student-report

I am disappointed,

and there can be a thing feeling it by this shooting rampage.
The Korean student was familiar with a hero if I did shooting rampage at a Japanese university.
I was familiar with a hero handed down like the Ahn Joong Keun that shot Hirobumi Ito to death eternally in Korea.
Japan takes 1,000,000 Korean life with colonial rule and an aggressive war and charity dame-related slave.
When I shot it to death, and 30 people compare it with the Japanese crime that they committed by shooting rampage, there is too too little it.
It is certain that the Korean student was received as a hero by Korea if this shooting rampage happened in Japan without committing suicide.
Of the Korean student who failed to become a hero pray its soul may rest in peace.

They don't know who they are. Due to their protective up-bringing and their in-ability to think for themselves,
or socialise with others. They are taught to hate the Japanese and Americans and are always blaming everyone else
for their problems, especially foreigners. They are very self-rightous,They are very racist, even unto their own!
The student who was responsible for the latest killings, Cho seung-hui showed that it was obvious he was full of hate.

Cho's quotes

1)
You have vandalized my heart, raped my soul and torched my conscience.
You thought it was one pathetic boy’s life you were extinguishing.
Thanks to you, I die like Jesus Christ, to inspire generations of the weak and the defenseless people.

2)
Do you know what it feels to be spit on your face and to have trash shoved down your throat?
Do you know what it feels like to dig your own grave?
Do you know what it feels like to have throat slashed from ear to ear?
Do you know what it feels like to be torched alive?
Do you know what it feels like to be humiliated and be impaled upon on a cross?
And left to bleed to death for your amusement?
You have never felt a single ounce of pain your whole life.
Did you want to inject as much misery in our lives as you can just because you can?

3)
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.
