    also, campus and local police were told to stand down and take no action after the first shootings, until given instructions to do so by federal law enforcers. i guess that explains what seems like the unconscionable delay in police response and in shutting down the campus to try to contain the killer.

    According to the paper today, they did. They noticed since he was a toddler that he was a silent child. They were very concerned about him.

    The statement by Sun-Kyung Cho, sister of Seung-Hui Cho, on behalf of herself and her family:
    On behalf of our family, we are so deeply sorry for the devastation my brother has caused. No words can express our sadness that 32 innocent people lost their lives this week in such a terrible, senseless tragedy. We are heartbroken.
    We grieve alongside the families, the Virginia Tech community, our State of Virginia, and the rest of the nation. And, the world.
    Every day since April 16, my father, mother and I pray for students Ross Abdallah Alameddine, Brian Roy Bluhm, Ryan Christopher Clark, Austin Michelle Cloyd, Matthew Gregory Gwaltney, Caitlin Millar Hammaren, Jeremy Michael Herbstritt, Rachael Elizabeth Hill, Emily Jane Hilscher, Jarrett Lee Lane, Matthew Joseph La Porte, Henry J. Lee, Partahi Mamora Halomoan Lumbantoruan, Lauren Ashley McCain, Daniel Patrick O'Neil, J. Ortiz-Ortiz, Minal Hiralal Panchal, Daniel Alejandro Perez, Erin Nicole Peterson, Michael Steven Pohle, Jr., Julia Kathleen Pryde, Mary Karen Read, Reema Joseph Samaha, Waleed Mohamed Shaalan, Leslie Geraldine Sherman, Maxine Shelly Turner, Nicole White, Instructor Christopher James Bishop, and Professors Jocelyne Couture-Nowak, Kevin P. Granata, Liviu Librescu and G.V. Loganathan.
    We pray for their families and loved ones who are experiencing so much excruciating grief. And we pray for those who were injured and for those whose lives are changed forever because of what they witnessed and experienced.
    Each of these people had so much love, talent and gifts to offer, and their lives were cut short by a horrible and senseless act.
    We are humbled by this darkness. We feel hopeless, helpless and lost. This is someone that I grew up with and loved. Now I feel like I didn't know this person.
    We have always been a close, peaceful and loving family. My brother was quiet and reserved, yet struggled to fit in. We never could have envisioned that he was capable of so much violence.
    He has made the world weep. We are living a nightmare.
    There is much justified anger and disbelief at what my brother did, and a lot of questions are left unanswered. Our family will continue to cooperate fully and do whatever we can to help authorities understand why these senseless acts happened. We have many unanswered questions as well.
    Our family is so very sorry for my brother's unspeakable actions. It is a terrible tragedy for all of us.

    The article sounds like horse hockey to me. First off, shooting a bunch of folks trying to squeeze into the far corners of classrooms isn't any trick, especially for a kid who's been playing shoot-em-up video games. Secondly, I don't see any evidence he filmed all his clips in those 2 hours. Third, that whole "mind control experiments at colleges" thing is ridiculous. They cite things from the 50s when the Cold War was on. The shooter wasn't even alive during the Vietnam Era. So today's CIA, staffing cut way back due to previous covert shenanigans, is supposed to be running a program still and have tried out some mind control thing using Prozac by issuing a secret code that ordered the killing of college kids? And the idea that SSRIs cause the mental problems they were prescribed to relieve, well, that doesn't deserve any comment at all.

    I play a host of "violent" video games (including "Counter strike", "Halo", "Close Combat" and "Call of Duty". My current avatar is from an old video game called Crusader - which includes being able to incinerate, vaporise and otherwise kill your human enemies in graphic ways).

    I listen to "metal music". From Alice in Chains and Nirvana to Metallica and Guns and Roses.

    Guess that makes me an 'unstable sociopath' in the making...

    Y'know what really bothers me about the whole Prozac thing?

    Some news accounts have suggested that Cho had a history of antidepressant use, but senior federal officials tell ABC News that they can find no record of such medication in the government's files. This does not completely rule out prescription drug use, including samples from a physician, drugs obtained through illegal Internet sources, or a gap in the federal database, but the sources say theirs is a reasonably complete search.
    From ABC News

    "Government files"? A "gap in the Federal Database"?

    Excuse me! Why the hell does the Federal Gummint need to keep tabs on what kind of pills I've been popping? Any other "databases" they have related to other "prescription medication"?
