Virginia Tech Fallout Across the Nation

I go to Missouri State University in Springfield MO...and apparently people are copying the VT Killer across the nation today. I woke up to the following e-mail from our university President:

Quote:
I want to inform all members of the University community that at 7:48am this morning, the Office of the President received an email that contained threats against various categories of individuals. The email had been sent first to an instructor of a Spanish class and to the Head of the Modern and Classical Languages Department. The individual believed to be responsible for sending the threatening email was detained in Craig Hall by Springfield Police and University security officers. He has been removed from the building and is being questioned. Craig Hall was locked down briefly so officers could search the building. They determined that Craig Hall is safe to be reopened and classes are being conducted as scheduled. We believe this threat has been responded to quickly and effectively and that it no longer poses a risk to the campus.

I and members of my staff will be available to the media at 10am to answer questions about the incident based on what we know at this time. In the meantime, it is apparent that campuses across the nation – including Missouri State - are now experiencing what might be some ripples from the tragedy at Virginia Tech earlier this week. I encourage all of us to be vigilant to risks and signs of danger that may be encountered while at the same time we maintain a reasonable approach to daily life and the activities of our University.

Michael T. Nietzel
President

This is so pathetic. In a period of time where anyone with a heart should be in utter shock of the events that happened at VT, we have copycats trying to make their own noise and make a name for themselves for all the wrong reasons. Sick.

unreal, such a tragedy. One can only hope people wont try to copy this. Its not an accomplishment to slay 32 people, let alone pop yourself.

VT After Math

I just turned on the t.v and it was on the news. It turns out these past 2 days their has been 3 school incidents. The first one some punk brought a gun to school and pointed it at some students and ran away. The 2nd one some guy shot and injured a guy in his school. The 3rd one was a guy calling the police station and said he had guns bomb and posion and he was going to make the "virginia tech shooting look mild".

I know these arnt very big casses, but to me it looks as though VT is just the begining of this idiotic behavoir.

It such a tragedy to not only kill ppl but to kill ppl that have significant futures in the world, individuals killed that were likely to do some good in the world.
