The Virginia Tech Speculation Continues

Pictures such as the one above raise questions as to what really happened on that rural campus. Who are the men in these pictures?

Talking heads are more than willing to second guess police and campus reaction after the first two shootings and politicians are already using this to further their anti-NRA agendas...

I guess it's never possible to concentrate on the victims. Though I guess if either of my children had been among them I would want to know what could have prevented it (even if that just meant making sure it never happened again).

I don't have a finger to point about the "delayed reaction" that morning...but I do have some questions about this:

"...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."

There were also reports that Cho, a senior majoring in English from Centreville, Va., had been taking medication for depression, and had also recently set fire to a dorm room and stalked women..." (source)

This kid had a documented history of disturbing, anti-social behavior. How do you set fire to a dorm room and stalk women and remain at the school?
