Your ignorance is evil, because you cannot understand this. You will only misunderstand disturbed people, blame them for things they cannot control (and I am talking about the illnesses in their minds, not their criminal activities). If we put you next to a mentally ill kid, you will only do harm to them, that is for sure. And shame on you. And shame on the media for not educating people like you on the subject sooner.

Why do you call the 32 victims “ultra-privileged”? Virginia Tech is not a private school. You really know NOTHING about the lives these people lived. What about Professor Librescu, who survived the Holocaust? I wouldn’t call that “ultra-privileged”? You don’t know how many of the ones he murdered in cold blood were paying their way through school? Especially the grad students. At least two of the student victims were from other countries – Indonesia and Peru, I believe. Those are poor countries. Were those students “ultra-privileged”? Cho was a psychotic murderer, and NOTHING that happened to him in his past can justify what it was that he did.
