Crazy that there are people on this forum who weren't even alive when V-Tech happened.

V-Tech has to be one of my favorite cases but there's a MAJOR lack of info. You get to a point very quickly while researching the case where you've read & seen everything available. Virginia has horrible Public Information laws and NBC has kept most of Cho's package to themselves. It's a shame Cho didn't upload his multimedia manifesto online but he obviously wanted time to destroy his computer and telling the internet what you're about to do and then having to spend like 30 minutes gearing up, destroying your hard drive, and walking to the building would give ample time for the pigs to respond. Cho definitely has the most interesting mindset out of all the shooters, minus a few others.

Anyways, crazy that the deadliest American school shooting is pretty much forgotten in the public eye. Nobody really cares about Cho or the shooting, even in TCC (hate that term) circles. Show me ONE Cho fangirl on twitter, you can't. It's as if everyone overlooks Cho for some reason, even I do at times due to the complete lack of new info. Damn...

It really is a shame that VT was basically swept under the rug. For such a high kill count, you'd think that there'd be more people analyzing it.It feels like a lot of school shootings before 2010 are majorly forgotten about. I guess since it was a university shooting that involved mostly young adults instead of high schoolers or children most people don't talk much about it.

I knew a few Cho fangirls on Tumblr before the TCC purge, but never on Twitter. Twitter fangirls aren't big fans of buzz cuts Razz

Gotta love when people hyper-analyze a minuscule shooting like Weis Market, instead of Virginia Tech. (Possibly because Cho wasn’t a trannie, them TCC fan girls don’t wanna be bigots).

i really liked that they re-opened norris hall as a center for violence prevention studies instead of just tearing the building down. they might have only been able to do that since vtech is a higher institution of learning as opposed to a high school or elementary, but i think it's such a good way to honor the victims in a really productive way. rest in peace to the 32 innocent lives that were taken, i'll be thinking of them today.

That's because Universities like that are established and all of the buildings have long histories while your average k-12 schools are easily replaceable. There are a million schools just like Robb Elementary out there, all mediocre and indistinguishable from one another. You can easily tear one down and prop another up, American schools are unanimous in being forgettable, unless you live in a nice area where people actually care about the quality of their kids' schooling.

yeah that makes sense. i think it would be cool if they did that on more college campuses that have had shootings. lord knows we need more research for violence prevention. i think v tech has set a good example in how to build back after an awful event like that.

Thanks to you, he died, like Jesus Christ, to inspire the weak and the defenseless people...
