Are we going to bomb the holy hell out of South Korea now?
 
2007-04-17 09:45:11 AM
I can't imagine the shiatstorm that's going to erupt on this guy's Myspace...

Anyone know if the weapons used belonged to him or to someone else?
 
2007-04-17 09:45:38 AM
also confirmed the same weapon used in both shootings
 
2007-04-17 09:45:51 AM
He has no MySpace profile, and the Virginia Tech student directory is down.
 
2007-04-17 09:46:12 AM
I'm predicting someone is about to say, "I told you so."
 
2007-04-17 09:46:25 AM
See you in hell, un-funny man.
 
2007-04-17 09:46:35 AM
"He has no MySpace profile"

Well, then... he must not actually exist.
Pfft.

Heard on GMA that both weapons were purchased recently, both serial numbers scratched out
 
2007-04-17 09:46:47 AM
This just keeps getting worse.
 
2007-04-17 09:46:47 AM
Yesterday when I heard that the shooter was Asian my first guess was that he wsa Korean. Is that profiling?

It's all Hawkeye's fault.

Romial: Anyone know if the weapons used belonged to him or to someone else?

I believe the article said he had a receipt for the gun.

ABC has a terrible headline. "Gunman Identified as Massacre at Virginia Tech Enters Day" makes it sound like the guy is still alive and shooting people.
 
2007-04-17 09:47:50 AM
Will I be going to hell for worring about how this will effect my next GTA game?
 
2007-04-17 09:48:13 AM
any pics?
 
2007-04-17 09:48:20 AM
Damn, this is going to be interesting at my high school tomorrow.
 
2007-04-17 09:48:34 AM
He has no Facebook, either. From what I understand from the press conference I just watched, he went to some lengths to keep his identity a secret, so the lack of a MySpace/Facebook doesn't surprise me.

Maybe Friendster? Korean social networks? Nah...

Pfft.


Come on, you know you were wondering.
 
2007-04-17 09:48:50 AM
Massacre enters second day? they are still shooting?

idiot ABC news editors.
 
2007-04-17 09:49:15 AM
So this was all over a girl? What a dumbass.
 
2007-04-17 09:49:20 AM
Did anyone else hear about how they were trying to blame this on the Wii? Specifically on red steal? Such a crappy game for them to blame it on.
 
2007-04-17 09:49:26 AM
I bet he's on Cyworld.

Anagram of Cho Seung Hui....

I chose gun uh!

Coincidence?

It's funny you say that. Because I've been in this ongoing argument with my Korean wife about this. Everytime an American farts in Korea they're ready to freeze adoptions, put tarifs on imports and start burning flags in effigy. Her defense has always been that Americans would do the same thing if Koreans were committing crimes in America.

Guess we're about to find out.
 
2007-04-17 09:49:34 AM
They should never have released his name. He should forever be referred to as "the murdering coward." Publicity only encourages the next lunatic.

Ah, Massacre at Virginia Tech Enters Day, I know him well. I always knew that kid would snap sooner or later, I blame his parents for gibing him the ridiculous name. They could have just named him Jim. Jim Day.
 
2007-04-17 09:49:57 AM
Now THAT'S the thread to be a political douchebag and score points.

No, we're going to invade Iran, obviously.
 
2007-04-17 09:50:02 AM
Apparently a picture will be released soon...
 
2007-04-17 09:50:03 AM
I just hope they don't let him graduate
 
2007-04-17 09:50:04 AM
But I'm sure he'll have no less than 20 MySpace profiles by the end of the day . . .
 
2007-04-17 09:50:08 AM
You don't suppose he was an alienated loner type, do you?

North Korea is close enough.

They said he was an English major. I find that really hard to believe. We're usually passive and just try to kill people with Shakespeare.
 
2007-04-17 09:50:19 AM
check for a xanga

emo-school shooters usually post shiatty poetry on a xanga...
 
2007-04-17 09:50:21 AM
At least he wasnt Irish.... phew....
 
2007-04-17 09:50:21 AM
"Massacre at Virginia Tech Enters Second Day".

Um...no, it's just the next day.
 
2007-04-17 09:50:22 AM
ABc is still saying two shooters??

Where the hell did the Chinese National on a student Visa come from?
 
2007-04-17 09:50:33 AM
This is just proof that America's corrupt culture and gun-obsession is the root of crime and pov.....

Wait, he was a foreigner!!!
 
2007-04-17 09:50:45 AM
Camping bastard.

There was a VT Farker in yesterday's thread who, after hearing it might have been an Asian, wondered if it wasn't the same kid in his class who had written a play about a massacre.

The Farker said the kid didn't say a single word all semester. Last I remember, said Farker was checking to see if he still had a copy of the play.

The English Major thing fits in with that. Hope the Farker checks in again to confirm.
 
2007-04-17 09:51:04 AM
Where's everyone who was sure that it was a Muslim yesterday?
 
2007-04-17 09:51:24 AM
has anyone ever had the misfortune of listening to savage world on talk radio? I accidentally put that on to listen to news, and it was dispicable[sp?]. He went into a 10 minute rant about why the killer being asian was important and how quickly americans play the race card.
Oh yeah, he also wanted to know why the national guard wasn't called after the first person got shot around 730.
"Holy lord! A student got killed - Red team go! Red team go!"
 
2007-04-17 09:51:26 AM
South Korean - that may explain how he was able to handle the gun so well, and also a lot of the motivation. South Korean males are required to serve two years in the military. I'm not sure at what age, but I know a lot of our students come for their freshman year, and then go back. I'm guessing it's after their 18th birthday.

The Asian culture of "saving face" may have a lot to do with why he took this route. I wouldn't be surprised if we find out that he was having academic troubles, or something similar. I've seen more than one Asian student attempt suicide because going home having "failed" is not an option.

/works with international students at a university
//speaking for myself, not the university
