Va. Tech Killer Alarmed Students & Teachers in Past
Sadly, legally, they did what seemed right at the time.
In our PC world, no one wanted to say he was 'crazy' before
we realize he was a murdering idiot. A public state school is
bound by federal and state laws on how to handle students.
A woman who thought he was stalking her, called the campus police,
and yet she did not wish to press charges. No police record in that
Parents worried he was suicidal, warned campus officials, they talked
to him, he entered a mental health facility (voluntarily?) - again, no
police record for that sort of thing.
Other students feared him in class, and he alarmed professors.
Legally, they couldn't do much - being afraid of someone, being
alarmed by their writings, being annoyed he was such a freak -
isn't a crime.
Writing evil deadly things in a creative writing class, an english
class - is not a crime.
In the end, I think the University did do what it was supposed to do
regarding his mental issues, and professor concern. Without a crime,
without a specific threat - they could not do much more. He kept his
grades up enough I guess, to stay in good standing.
I do wonder had any of the girls he stalked, had pressed charges, perhaps,
he might have been expelled earlier. Just one more thing to think of.
It does make one wonder why he was at school at all. He was a 23
year old senior, who still lived at the dorm and not off campus by
that time, didn't have any friends, hated the place, hated life, and
wanted to die.
Hated rich kids, hated Christians, hated the school. Sounds like he
spent a lot of time on the internet and watching late night tv.
In the end, he was a fixated loser, not insane. He knew how to stay in
a good university, live off his parents money at school, exist day to day,
write enough for his class work, work computers, be active in computer
message boards or chatrooms, get over to a gun shop, buy a gun, wait,
buy another gun, get big chains, and maneuver his way around a campus
to kill people he didn't even know.
As a senior, that easy life he had on the parents dime was coming to
an end. What was this loser going to do with his English degree and
hatred of all things Virginia Tech? Nothing.
