This is extremely devastating and tragic and wish the best to the victims families.

I hope that people will realize that the shooter acted on his own will and prolly had a shit load of issues and not associate his actions with his heritage. From what I gather he was born and raised in VA. There are a lot of great service people of middle eastern descent that do not need anymore shit because of this. This fucker however, did not help anything.

May the fallen soldiers RIP .. It's most likely stress related .. but that would be my guess

The shooter is reported from VA and went to VA Tech.

What are the odds that one school has produced two of the most vile mass murderers in the US in the last 3 years?

I am not going to count the Chinese dude who cut off the head of another student on campus, but is it just me or should we be looking at the water in Blacksburg or something?

Really, what are the odds that both these tragic events (Seung-Hui Cho on campus/ Nidal Malik Hasan at Ft. Hood) that took 44+ lives involved people who attended the same school. Is it a bad run for the university or what?

I really do not know, but does it seem odd that these two came out of the same location?

I am not trying to offend Va Tech people on the board, but as a rational person you have got to wonder WTF are the odds.

I find it interesting that you mention al-qaida immediately just because he had an arab name. Why would you ask a question like that? Do people have the same kind of questions about other shooters? There have been plenty of shootings in recent years where lots of unfortunate people have died. I doubt you would be asking that if his name was Bill Johnson.

The guy was apparently born and raised in the US, and joined the military straight out of high school.

Yup he's in stable condition at the hospital.

Oh shit, you are. You have just been tagged buddy, you're gonna be on the watch list boy!


just kidding buddy But that's the sad thing about situations like this, people are already extremely prejudiced towards middle easterns and if you do something and are of middle eastern descent, they equate it to you doing it because of your heritage. Not the immediate factors such as the person might be fucking crazy or have issues or is a psycho or can't handle stress etc.

I really do not think anyone can find another university that has produced 2 people who have killed 44 people between them from the same university in the last 3 years.

I may be wrong, I just do not recall any similar correlation in the last few years, actually ever.

There has been a lot of violent people coming out of VT lately. I too have thought what in the hell is going on down there. I have family that goes there and this is one of the schools I was going to look into for my son but I am having serious doubts about that now. Say what you want but the coincidence's are too much to ignore.
