Maybe this is just a retaliation from Lee Hall for all the times those Pritchard asshats came over and pulled our fire alarm. Annoying bastards.

How difficult would it be to record sounds of gunfire, screams, etc and put the recorder in an inconspicious location in any public place (school, mall, etc.) Just for fun, you know - like beating a homeless man to death...

Unless you're there, what's the difference? There are gunshots all over the US every day, in every kind of town.

You guys thought there'd never, ever be another shooting in or around VTech?

Go ahead and call me all sorts of stuff. This is routine, local news.

FTFA:

During the course of the investigation , eyewitnesses reported seeing people, possibly students exploding firecrackers or something else in or near a dumpster near Pritchard.

Police have found no evidence of gunfire from within or outside the building and believe the noises likely came from something other than gunfire.

RAMSET!

If only all the students had been armed so they all could have crept out with their guns to investigate what turned out to be firecrackers.

/Holy shiat that guy has a gun, shoot!
//Holy shiat that guy shot at me! Returing fire!

Thanks for rating your own troll. Number's spot on.

This is why you keep the volume turned down when you watch Heat in your dorm.
 
2008-11-13 02:39:17 PM
pcbguy ... but are you getting kicks out of these replies?
 
2008-11-13 02:39:31 PM
False alarm. Let's get hammered.
 
2008-11-13 02:39:34 PM
They should ban firecrackers. For the children.
 
2008-11-13 02:39:40 PM
Nice troll smitty. And since this is the ultimate in not news, I blame modmin

A firecracker in the dorm room costs 20$, same as in town

Why do I think this will turn out to be someone's "Performance Art" project, or that someone was making a short film about the first shooting and needed footage of policemen running around?

When firecrackers are illegal, only illegals will have firecrackers.

Yup, it is. Except to those of us at Virginia Tech who thought the "We'll text message your phone with emergency warnings! Oh, and also about 8 tests a week when we first get the system online." was just a good way to burn through a phone bill.

/too sick to go to class anyways

It's probably nothing big, but, keep your eyes open anyway.

I work in the NOC here. We just got this:

Police now believe that sounds from Pritchard were NOT gunfire. Investigation still ongoing.
Police have interviewed witnesses who saw and heard people, possibly students, exploding something outside Pritchard Hall.

At about 12:50 p.m. Thursday VTPD received a report of sounds like gunfire in the vicinity of Pritchard Hall. Police immediately secured the building and began a floor by floor and room by room search. During the course of the investigation , eyewitnesses reported seeing people, possibly students exploding firecrackers or something else in or near a dumpster near Pritchard. Police have found no evidence of gunfire from within or outside the building and believe the noises likely came from something other than gunfire.

From the VTech website(^):
2:21pm: Police now believe that sounds from Pritchard were NOT gunfire. Investigation still ongoing.
 
2008-11-13 02:44:35 PM
I know who it isn't.
 
2008-11-13 02:44:52 PM
probably just a law abiding citizen with a gun permit preventing crime. nothing to see here.
 
2008-11-13 02:45:20 PM
All I have to say about THAT is that if it is kids throwing firecrackers...they are in for a very un-fun Holiday Season.

Ass-hats.

I'm so relieved it's just a bomb, and not gunfire.

Gotta get those hits, huh Drew? Or maybe he's making a statement.

I laughed far too hard at this, but I'm going to Hell anyway so whatever.

Scatmandingo: I fired a potato gun out of the window of that dorm once many years ago.

I lived in Pritchard for a few years...on the pit.
