Seriously bana What causes people to go on murderous rampages? Sexual jealousy, revenge, a lust for terrorizing, psychosis — God only knows the depth of depravity in the human soul.

Can you imagine the guy pictured was The murderer was a 23-year-old native of South Korea named Cho Seung-Hui. ????

It’s too early to say what happened with any certainty. Obviously, it’s a horrific incident. A lot of the people in the media are asking for the VT President and police chief to resign. I’m leaning in that direction myself. What was the reason for not locking down the campus? It’s not like this is the first time there was an on-campus shooting at that school as far as CNN goes …!!!

maze wananchi ,It just seems like there was no set process to deal with this scenario yesterday. If I were a VT parent, I would be beside myself. When a school accepts your kid, they’re also accepting resposibilty for his or her safety. Is it possible that in the wake of Columbine and 9/11, VT Police had no procedures in place? The press conference with the president and police official didn’t fill me with confidence

I was Suprised to see armored vest wearing, assault rifle toting, police standing around while gunshots were being fired. Didn’t they realize that hundreds of uanarmed civilians were in harms way? It seems to me the situation called for the police to breach the building as quickly as possible, as many ways as possible, with overwhelming force to stop the shooting.

Let us observe a minute of silence in solidarity with our fallen comrades because been a student this could happen to us any given day

Meanwhile closer back home Our school of engineering showed some sympathy with this email to all engineering students …..its sad becuase it could happpen to any school …kwanza for us in engineering it hit closer home becuase 80% of my classmates are of asian origin

To: exec@naesc.orgSubject: Moment of Silence for the Students of Virginia
To the Nation’s Engineering Schools,

The National
Association of Engineering Student Councils (NAESC) would like to encourage each
engineering school across the nation to take a moment of silence at 5pm on April
17th, in memory of those tragically killed in today’s shootings and with united
support for the Virginia Tech community.

This event has undoubtedly stunned us all. However, few universities world-wide could prove immunity to such a catastrophe. It is imperative that every school address this incident to prevent triggering a wave of events and attention-seekers.

Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are extended to the friends and families of those
affected by today’s incident. We encourage each and every one of you to
also keep all of these people in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you for your continued support,

The NAESC Executive
