Full Article"Today the university was struck by a tragedy we consider of monumental proportions," Virginia Tech President Charles Steger said during a press conference shortly after noon. "I cannot begin to convey my own personal sense of loss over this senseless, incomprehensible, heinous act."
At 7:15 a.m. Monday, a 911 call came in to the campus police department concerning an incident at West Ambler Johnston, a residence hall, and that there were multiple shooting victims, Steger said. While that investigation was underway, a second shooting was reported in Norris Hall, located at the opposite end of the 2,600-acre campus.
check out this link http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18137414/ not all shooters were foreign exchange students or Asian. Yes I think it is something cultural is going on but not based on ethnicity or skin color....I think it has something to do with our society. I'm not sure what it is or why it happens. The D.C. snipers were black,columbine kids white some shooters Asian one college shooter Hispanic. I just wish the violence like this would stop.Originally Posted by gaya
Is it true in most of these "college" shootings that the perpetrator is usually a foreign student? I just heard a news reporter mention that and that it's usually Asians. My friend and prof at my uni was stabbed in the throat by an international student a year or two ago. I wonder if there's somethign cultural going on.
