Say it isn't so, this thread wasn't about VT was it.
Hey, hey. Can we keep this on topic, please
I wanted to have a compare/contrast conversation between the Bath incident and VT.
According to Tennis Fool, the thread starter, it did/does pertain to VT, yes.
I thought it was blantantly obvious that the thread starter was trying to show that through this incident.
And somehow, someway you went way off in left field, typical.
But to get back on topic.
The similarities of the Bath incident are interesting to the VT killer.
The most important thing to notice though is the Bath killer wasn't a loner, wasn't anti-social (he seemed to be a involved citizen of his community), and seemed pretty "normal" except for the fact that he blamed things that most people usually wouldn't blame for the problems in his life.
It just shows you that the most important factor is not that he was a loner or that he wrote dark literature or anything else people are trying to use as signs that he was going to kill 33 people, it's the ability to warp his issues with life into issues with the world.
And I do agree with the sentiment that if a person wants to kill they will find a way.
Now we can go extreme and make universities like almost jails to make sure this incident doesn't happen again.
Even in the most high security jails if a criminals wants to kill someone, they have the means and it still takes 30 seconds for it to be busted up.
So sadly someone was going to die that day even if we went to the extremes to try to prevent it.
If the university had metal detectors all around campus this guy could have used a plastic bomb in his shoe, go to a classroom and still kill 33 people.
He would have likely had to do it a little more discrete than he did with this incident but still possible.
And that list goes on and goes, perhaps less people would have died as you go up the extremes but someone would have likely died.
