    The death-count including the gunner is now up to 31...with plenty more wounded. Two incidents, two hours apart with the sedond happening as the police were investigating the 1st.

    What a fuckin' mess!

    Over 50, when you coulnt the wounded.

    This guy went in with a mission. If guns were allowed on campus, he may have been dropped before it got so horrible.

    The last count I heard was 33 dead and 29 injured I think. Just depressing. Looks to me like there's still a question of whether the two shootings were even related but they may just be hedging their bets. Odd that a man and woman were shot in the dorm and then two hours later (ostensibly) the same guy would start a bloodbath at classes across campus. OTOH some folks is just deranged.

    My money says his girlfriend & her new lover in the dorm. He then decided that he was already fucked so he may as well take some brainiacs with him.

    It seems they are being careful not to call this terrorism.
    This all seems very suspicious to me.

    Where have you seen any evidence that it might be terrorism. Well, okay, I suppose that technically, anything like this could be considered a terrorist act but I don't see anything like a political agenda. I think it's probably like Gonz says. He killed his ex and her new BF and decided "he was already fucked so he may as well take some brainiacs with him." Of course, he was one of the braniacs but I don't see that it matters.

    yep, and since most koreans are full-on gospel christians, it MUST be terrorism, right? that's where the suspicion comes in.

    He was an English major --- if he was pissed at profs and students, why didn't he go there. He chose the Engineering Building for some reason.

    (ducks head)

    because he's asian and felt like he shoulda been with all the other asians, in engineering?

    Point in your favor.

    Now you're expecting sense from a nutjob.

    Maybe his girlfriend had a thing for engineers. :shrug:

    By the way, his roommate was an engineer student. And, apparantly he had a grudge against "rich kids". Since, it seems, he stuck to himself he might have had more out of class contact with engineer students through his roommate?

    Gotta lot to do today, but I'll put forth my theory later for ya.:nerd:

    wrong, I guess. I don't know of the religion.

    terrorism for sure though....
    repercussions already...(see the story about the TxU bomb note...

    well, it seems the evolving story (background and such) doesn't
    fit my theory anymore. (some, but not enough)
    I guess he was just a psycho.:shrug:
