    Ladies, if you haven't watched the news this afternoon, boy are you in for a shock. There has been a massive shooting at VA Tech. At last count, at least 32 students are dead and 28 more are wounded. I don't personally know anyone there (at least I don't think I do) but as soon as I turned on the tv an hour ago there it was, and I have felt sick to my stomach ever since. There are a lot of families that could use our prayers today and for the next few days I'm sure.

    I heard this on my other board too. My response wasn't the best and I'm still pissed at the shooters.

    This is just a horrible tragedy. I heard about first thing this morning. I can't even explain really how I feel I just hate when things like this keep happening in our world today.

    I'm surprised this didn't happen today instead of Monday. The Columbine thing happened on 4/19 and so did something else. Waco, maybe?

    Watching all the news reports that have been going on since I have to say that i Can't BELIEVE how they let this guy run around especially AFTER he had checked himself in for mental issues. The reports that they are showing here say his mental status was unstable and he was a possible danger to others and Himself. Having that in his reports should have prompted someone to watch him. (ESPECIALLY his family!)

    SHannon, his family is in South Korea. He was ordered to have physch. eval by a court, he did not go there voluntarily. When they let him out 48 hours later, there was no one to check up on him. It's not the schools responsibility, although they contacted the authorities many times. His English Proffessor submitted much of his writing to the authorities but there was nothing they could legally do. I think the courts failed for not checking up him. And the mental hospital failed for letting him out.

    The news reports here said his family lived somewhere nearby and even had "Neighbors" commenting on the family owning some sort of business in the area.

    They also said that since HE checked himself into rehab he was allowed to check himself out whenever he wanted. The news here said something about a counseler mentioned to him that he should get more help (than what the school could give) and that is why he went. They did read some of his writings in the reports (something about some sort of play or something).
