    Have they released how this guy obtained the guns? Did he steal them or were they his legally? Just curious.

    Nevermind, ABC is reporting he apparently bought a Glock 9mm back in March.

    Sources say Cho was carrying a backpack that contained receipts for a March purchase of a Glock 9 mm pistol. Witnesses had told authorities that the shooter was carrying a backpack. Police also said this morning that Cho had a .22 caliber pistol.

    Is it true that he's a Chinese National?

    How does someone who isn't a U.S. citizen purchase a firearm?

    He was a South Korean national. This ABC article says he is a resident alien. What does that mean exactly?

    He is Cho Seung-Hui, a 23-year-old resident alien of the United States, as first reported by ABC News.

    Cho is a South Korean national, a Virginia Tech senior majoring in English and the man who killed 33 people — inlcuding himself — on the Virginia Tech campus Monday.

    Per an AP article...

    Cho was a permanent legal resident of the United States, according to a Homeland Security Department official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the information had not been announced.

    The face of the butcher of Blacksburg.

    Doesn't look much like a killer does he? Such a senseless situation all around.

    It doesn't quite seem to add up to me. An English senior in a German class in an engineering building. The German class in an engineering building is somewhat normal, but the rest just doesn't seem to add up. Do we know if they are still thinking it was an ex-girlfriend thing now that they connected the two shootings?

    If he was such a loner I wonder if he had just fixated himself on someone and then flipped out yesterday?

    You would think her dorm mates would know a little about who she was dating, they would have seen him around or something (and shared that info with the police).

    Not too bright to file off serial #'s but leave the receipt for the purchase in your backpack.

    Of course we are not talking about someone with any scruples whatsoever.

    This is my theory and nothing more, so take it for what its worth.

    Guy gets dumped for another guy. Let's it stew for a few days/weeks whatever it was and plots and plans his revenge, buys a gun. Yesterday goes to dorm room to see if guy and or girl are there. Finds the girl, kills her. Kills the floor RA who comes to help the victim. Then goes to the building where the new boyfriend has classes and isn't sure who/where he is even so he starts going room by room shooting anyone and everyone he can.

    Probably just my brain trying to wrap an answer up for the event, but I can't think of much of a reason.

    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Well, I guess this is my confusion, IIRC, they said they had a "person of interest" in custody after the first shooting and, I guess, before the second. I assumed this was the boyfriend. Maybe not. I did see this:

    The Virginia Tech police chief, Wendell Flinchum, said today that an acquaintance of a female victim killed at the dormitory had been stopped in his vehicle off campus for questioning when the shootings at Norris Hall were reported.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/17/us/17virginia.html?hp

    So maybe he went to the German class for his ex-girlfriend? It does seem that someone in the dorm might have seen the guy if he was an ex-boyfriend.

    That means he was here legally.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    He'd have to be here legally to be enrolled in classes at VPI.

    Student visa maybe?

    Not to diverge from the tragedy at hand, but in events like these, why are the first words said about the killers that they were 'loners'?

    I do not mean defend this man in any sense of the word, but why is there the sudden rush to set them apart from the rest of society in an event like this?

    I'm asking this on the psychoanalytical level in relation to US and the media, and again not in an attempt to defend the killer.
