    The system or lack of social services in the United states let this man slide through many a crack.

    Well I admit the system failed to flag this guy as dangerous, but lack of social services???????????????

    Just how damn many more “Social Services” does this idiot think we need in this country? Hell we’ve got Welfare and Gimme Gimme Services up to our ass as it is!

    Oh but of course…it’s someone else’s money being spent so what the hell…

    At some point, psychopathy stopped being a forensic explanation and became an excuse.

    I read that link a few days ago and I have no desire to revisit, but as I recall the most revolting thing was the near unanimity of the commenters on agreeing that America, not Cho, killed those people.

    There must be a big black hole ready to open over there, Your Rottieness; at least a couple see the folly of eulogizing over Cho.

    I tried to read it - I really did - ‘know thy enemy’ and all that.

    Couldn’t do it.

    Made it past the first couple of block-quotes, and realized that the whole thing read like it was written by one of those “Dark” freshman English Majors - perhaps much-lauded in his public high school for his ability to string two sentences together without pulling a muscle - now just making people roll their eyes and throw up (a little bit, just in my mouth) with his overdone, sanctimonious pap.

    I don’t believe he even believes his own crap - he’s just happy to have something ‘original’ (writing the editorials regular Americans won’t) to “write” about.

    Tried - Just couldn’t do it.

    Tell me how this one turns out.

    MuscleDaddy, I’ll put it for you in a nutshell:

    It’s everyone else’s fault except Cho’s.

    This is typical liberal M.O.: Blame everyone but the perpetrator. Sound familiar? (e.g. 9/11 was America’s fault.)

    My gawd that was the stupidest bunch of regurgitated liberal feel-good kumbayah crap I have ever read.

    Damn I could do a dissertation on just that one post and become a Doctor of Stupidology (otherwise known as a liberal arts professor or a womens studies professor).

    Some gems for muscledaddy, who understandably couldn’t get thru it all. I have the constitution of an armored badger so I made it thru the thing:

    Of course, in the minds of many American’s *snip*, if they are not born in this country, they are aliens.

    Really? Whatever sad creatire wrote the drivel should go look up teh word “alien” and try to wrap it’s head around the fact that people NOT BORN in this country ARE ALIENS.

    Some more:

    Most of us think our lack of personal success is our fault.

    No. Why would your lack of personal success be your fault? It isn’t as if you made choices that led you to where you are in life. The “man” made teh choices for you, and caused you to be the miserable, hateful bag of rabid rodents pus that you are….it is never your fault.

    And finally this last bit of BS:

    Then instead of coming together we try harder to take control. Emotions cannot be regulated; in truth, we cannot mandate behaviors.

    This from someone on the side of teh aisle that tries harder everyday to take control and regulate behaviors.

    Can we make hypocrisy illegal?

    Again, the Death Cult of the Left rears its sick little fucking head. They excuse murderers, rapists, butchers and tyrants all in the name of fucking fuzzy understanding.

    You know what, I was -the- weird kid at my school, middle and senior (ages 8-14ish) and I dreamt about blowing away a select few arseholes that made my life Hell. I sure as fuck didn’t act on those fantasies though, they were a way to blow off mental steam.

    Then again, I wasn’t raised in a school system that (yet) told me I was a precious fucking snowflake that deserved every greater good. They still streamed kids when I was in school, putting those of like ability together to better target their education. I was a smart kid in the dumb kids classes due to being a mouthy little bastard who couldn’t do what he was told if it would save my life….. I stuck out like a sore thumb and caught a -lot- of shit for it, from teachers and kids. Some of it would get people sent to jail these days, but back then it was part of being a kid.

    Seems to me that the bullying hasn’t got worse, the kids have gotten softer. Nothing to do with the Left’s Pussification of American Plan though, right?

    So fuck Cho and those who would succor him. His reaction was out of proportion to anything he had to endure.

    Of course, in the minds of many American’s *snip*, if they are not born in this country, they are aliens.

    No shit dumbass. I’m an alien. You know what, I haven’t been treated negatively once (not counting the BCIS whose job it is to make me want to go home I think) for being an alien. Hell, I get compliments on the ragged remnants of my accident from women far too hot to be compimenting me and most of your menfolk are just as welcoming.

    I suspect this shit-stain is confusing illegal alien and alien (as the Left do). No-one’s yet suggested kicking my arse out, just the illegals I live near. So again, go fuck yerself Kostard, it’s you lot that can’t cope with diversity, unless it makes a good deprived power base to illegally vote for you.

    And sorry if I make less sense than normal, this article got me pissed off something wicked and brought some ugly shit to mind.

    I have never, and will never, forget those libtard pukes. I JOINED the military at the tail end of Nam, and retired AFTER Desert Storm. It’s astonishing the difference in the return home between those two, but the fact remains that the only shit caught was from the left. Oh, wait, the UN said to do DS. My bad. This is only referred to in reflection about the left. Of course he’s not to blame. He killed potentially productive Americans, who were disarmed at their insistence, and an old JOOOO. Fuck them with rusty barbed wire.

    He was a victim of the stigma of mental illness. How many others are out there, either unable or unwilling to get the help they need? I hope the day comes soon where mental illnesses will be considered the same as physical illnesses, and get treated not shunned…and I thank you for writing this. I cried when I learned that at VT they erected 33 stones for the deceased and decorated them with flowers - a little act of inclusion for a long suffering victim of this horribly exclusionary society.

    wish none of this happened. I wish Cho were still alive today along with the other 32. They were all humans, and the loss of their life is equally saddening.

    The money quote.

    So on one side of the scale, we have 32 kids, and the other side of the scale, one lone sullen loser who had mental problems and refused all help and spent over 2 months planning a massacre.

    And the deaths on BOTH sides of the scale are EQUALLY saddening?

    Liberals must NEVER, EVER have control over the rest of us.

    They might do stupid things like, you know, create ‘gun free zones’.

    Posted this on the ann coulter forum after some libtards showed up claiming not being able to see how liberals enabled Cho to do what he did:

    Ok kid gloves coming off.

    If you’re the sensitive bleeding heart type, stop reading here.

    Ok, can’t say you weren’t warned.

    An enabler is someone who sets the stage for another person to commit their deeds.

    In that sense, Michael Dukakis was Willie Horton’s enabler, when he repeatedly refused to prohibit furloughs for first degree murderers.

    Ann Coulter rightly pointed out how the real story of the Willie Horton fiasco was that liberals can’t be trusted to protect society from criminals.

    And Michael Dukakis made himself the poster boy for that with his insistance on letting violent criminals sentenced to life without parole out of prison to mingle with the rest of us.

    Well Cho has his enablers too.

    Some posters on this board have claimed they can see no connection between policies that liberals and gun controlers champion, and the setting of the stage that allowed Cho to rack up such a horrific body count.

    Allow me to explain it to you.

    What is a gun free zone?

    I know, some posters have made some good points about what they think it is in this thread, but there’s one overwhelming aspect of a ‘gun free zone’ that is being overlooked.

    Gun free zones only exist in states with Concealed Carry.

    They are the liberal’s revenge against the state legislatures enacting the will of the people in voting for Concealed Carry.

    Think about it.

    Does even the most ivory-tower liberal in a university or other such venue actually believe that a criminal, on seeing the sign “This is a Gun Free Zone”, is going to turn around and go home?, Or that any crazed homicidal lunatic will be stopped cold and go put their gun back in their car?

    Of course not. They know such people will ignore the sign.

    So who’s the sign for then?

    I’ll tell you who it’s for.

    It’s for the right-wing, NRA, knuckle-dragging, neanderthal gun-rights conservative, that’s who that sign is for.

    Gun free zones are the liberal’s pushback against law abiding, honest, God-fearing fellow citizens who dare to carry those evil objects on their persons.

    They know such signs and zones don’t deter criminals and that’s not the point they are making.

    The point they are making is that while the state lawmakers may trust their fellow citizens with guns, they don’t.

    So after a guy undergoes a far more stringent background check than the one he undergoes for simply purchasing a weapon, and after he takes special training to prove he can act responsibly with it, and gets a Concealed Carry license, a liberal forces him to disarm before stepping onto his turf.

    Whatever venues liberals control, be it a university or some other place, they force people to give up their right to self defense to enter their domain.

    It’s about getting back at the NRA, and conservatives, and making a point to all those voters that brought CCW to that state. It’s not about stopping gun weilding criminals and it never has been.

    It’s about defending their turf from being defiled by the presence of guns. They know the people that would be carrying those guns are not on their side of the political spectrum, and they hold such people in contempt.

    Liberals actually do have a skewed view of conservatives as violent people. They constantly use alarming, emotional language when discussing how ‘violent’ conservatives are. So they actually end up fearing the clean-cut conservative guy who has a CCW license who has never been arrested in his life, and insist on disarming him before they will consent to let him mingle with them.

    They fear people who legally obtained CCW permits more than they fear criminals. That’s what gun free zones are about.

    Now onto my second point.

    How does enforcing a gun-free zone lead to more violence, not less?

    Simple. Virginia is a CCW state. Lots of people are carrying concealed. One newspaper in Virginia recenlty had a rogue employee publish the names of every CCW permit holder in the state, and it was quite an extensive list.

    There are VT students who have CCW permits, and a few faculty as well. But they have usually followed the rules of the university. Last year one student was in trouble for being found with a handgun, even though he did have a valid CCW permit.

    A person who can defend himself and lets an attacker know this reduces the level of violence that can be done by that attacker.

    Think of it this way. If an attacker assaults a group of 30 people but 5 of them are armed or show spirited resistance, the maxixum amount of violence he can wreak is reduced in proportion to how much resistance his attack is met with. Such resistance also gives potential victims time to flee.

    Once such person who resisted at VT was a professor who, at the cost of his own life, blocked the door to his classroom, thus allowing all of his students to escape. This resistance cost the gunman time, and potential victims, and it was done by a man who had no weapon at all.

    However, if the attacker cleverly stages his attack in a ‘gun free zone’, he has a more than reasonable assurance that the 30 people he is attacking cannot make or sustain any real resistance to his assault.

    Therefore, he is able to wreak maximum damage.

    30 completely disarmed people are not any safer from having been disarmed if they are attacked. They are more at risk, actually.

    Which brings me to my third point.

    If you intentionally create an environment in your domain in which it is impossible for people to defend themselves if they happen to be attacked, you bear the burden of providing more security for them to keep such attacks from happening. If you fail to do so, you have failed at that greater responsibility that you took upon yourself.

    By forcing it’s students to disarm, the VT faculty incurred a greater burden of providing security for those students.

    Some VT students and faculty would be more than happy to help provide for their own security, if the university’s rules would let them. Especially after this latest incident.

    But since up to now the university has decreed that even those students who wish to provide for their own security may not do so, it was up to the university to demonstrate it could meet the greater burden it had placed upon itself.

    And it failed.

    No security force, no police force, no military can save someone who is isolated in a room with a criminal.

    There were hundreds of armed police and security personnel on that campus when the second shooting incident occured, the one that proved fatal to 30 people.

    Even if when a criminal begins his attack, and you become aware of the danger, you have a cell phone in your hand to instantly call for help, it will take several minutes for the police to reach you. Until then, you are on your own.

    That is a stark fact of life and some people take steps to prepare for such a time when they need to protect themselves until the police arrive, and some don’t.

    For a group of liberals to decree that no one can take any steps at all to protect themselves with weapons until the police arrive is simply to consign many potential victims to death.

    This is so obvious it hardly needs stating.

    The standing policy in domains where liberals rule is “Run for it, hide, or beg until the police show up to save your ass. But forget about us letting you have a weapon here. We don’t trust you.”

    And it’s killed lots of people over the years.

    VT is just the most horrific example of such policies and the bitter fruit they bear.

    Having now enumerated at length as to how the liberals in power at VT set the stage for this massacre, let me turn to next set of Cho’s enablers.

    The liberals who re-wrote the country’s involuntary committal laws in the late 1970’s.

    Yeah, I know, the standard mantra is that Ronald Reagan created homelessnes almost overnight with his tax cuts.

    Far from it. What caused widespread homlessness was the liberals rewriting of the mental illness committal laws, and the crack cocaine epidemic.

    Conservatives, whatever their faults, don’t use drugs much, that’s more of a liberal thing, with grass and coke and whatnot.

    Homelessness was caused by a tidal wave of mentally ill people being cut loose, with succeeding waves of mentally ill never entering hospitals for real treatment in the first place. On top of that the wave of drugs that caused many substance abusers to become street addicts and criminals.

    It wasn’t the conservative’s bright idea to turn people who couldn’t fend for themselves out on to the streets. Liberals with a strange notion of personal freedom did that.

    The result now is that a person who displays real mental illness can’t be touched unless they really do something violent.

    Despite all the stalking and strange behavior he evinced the past several years, Cho’s first documented violent act thus far was shooting two people to death last Monday morning.

    Mentally ill people who should be getting treatment in hospitals against their will are now ‘free’ to freeze to death on grates in the winter, to eat out of trash cans, and be vulnerable to all sorts of abuses and attacks on the streets.

    The hurdles one has to jump over to get someone involuntarily committed are so high as to be almost insurmountable. Even the VT police failed to get Cho committed to a mental hospital for his stalking two years ago.

    As Charles Krauthammer said in his last column, this incident at VT should lead to a national debate on ‘psychosis control’, not gun control.

    I agree with him.

    This man should have been in a mental ward for the past 2 years getting treatment, not buying guns and roaming around on the VT campus.

    If any claim not to have a clue as to how Cho was enabled by those liberals who set the stage for his actions after having read this, I can only say this:

    Common sense isn’t genetic.

    manofaiki

    Naturally, after I posted that some libtard pretending to be a conservative claimed to still not get it, and wanted to know if we could prove to him that the background check to get a CCW permit was any better than the checking Cho went through to buy his guns.

    The point they are making is that while the state lawmakers may trust their fellow citizens with guns, they don’t.

    And why should they?
    Why should it be taken as an article of faith that we can have full confidence in anyone with a Concealed Carry license to (a) protect fellow citizens in a crisis, and (b) not go postal himself some fine sunny morning when his coffee wasn’t hot enough for him?

    Elsewhere in this forum, I’ve expressed skepticism about Concealed Carry as a solution to this kind of crime (senseless mass murders). After reading Ann Coulter’s latest column, and some of the posts here, I am a little more open to persuasion that we should at least be seriously examining whether it really does work.

    However, I try to avoid grocery shopping when I’m hungry.
    We should not be rushing to Concealed Carry as an “obvious” solution in the aftermath of the latest terrible shooting.

    So after a guy undergoes a far more stringent background check than the one he undergoes for simply purchasing a weapon, and after he takes special training to prove he can act responsibly with it, and gets a Concealed Carry license …..

    Where can somebody learn more about this?
    How do we know these safeguards work any better than the ones that were supposed to prevent the lunatic at VT from buying a gun?

    People on this forum don’t trust Liberals. But bear in mind, they don’t trust YOU. Again, why should they? Just think of all the stupid stereotypes your average Liberal has about “Conservatives”. Now you’re saying the snalrling wife-beating, dog-kicking, fire-and-brimstone religious Nazi gun nuts say they can do a better job of protecting us than the police?

    Whether we like it or not, in our system of government we have to PERSUADE people to our point of view. Starting from the premise that our position is obviously correct and everyone else is an idiot may score points with people who already agree with you, but it’s not a very effective way to convert anyone.

    I think the average traveller trusts the unidentified federal marshall sitting somewhere on the airplane with a weapon in his pocket. How do you bring around your average college student (or parent) to trusting the unidentified Concealed Carry license holder sitting somewhere in the classroom ( or restaurant or movie theater or toy store)?

    Oh, you are?

    Ok, then consider this then:

    Quote:
    Woodham drove his mother’s car to his high school. Wearing a blue denim jacket, he made no attempt to hide his rifle. When he entered the school, he walked toward Lydia Dew and shot her thinking her to be his former girlfriend Christina Menefee, whom he also shot. Both girls died. He went on to wound 7 others before Joel Myrick, the assistant principal, retrieved a .45 pistol from the glove compartment of his truck and subdued Woodham while he was trying to drive off campus. When Myrick asked Woodham of his motive, he replied “Life has wronged me, sir”. Woodham had been planning to drive to the Pearl Middle School to continue his murderous rampage, only Myrick’s intervention prevented this from happening.

    That’s one mass murder event cut short by a private citizen with a gun.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trolley_Square_shooting

    Quote:
    The gunman, Sulejman Talović, was an eighteen year-old Bosniak Muslim refugee. He had a history of minor juvenile incidents, had dropped out of high school[1] and had been living in Salt Lake City with his mother.[2]

    On February 12, 2007, at 6:44 PM MST, Talović began a deadly shooting in Trolley Square resulting in the deaths of five bystanders and the shooter himself,[3] as well as the wounding of at least 4 others. Talovic was described as wearing a white shirt, a tan trenchcoat and a mullet.[4] He carried both a shotgun and a handgun,[5] as well as a backpack full of ammunition.[6]

    The gunman’s rampage was stopped after trading shots with off-duty police officer Kenneth Hammond, and Sgt. Andrew Oblad of the Salt Lake City Police Department; their actions prevented further loss of innocent lives. The final confrontation, in which Talović was killed, occurred in the Pottery Barn Kids home furnishing store.[7] Hammond was at Trolley Square with his pregnant wife, 911 dispatcher Sarita Hammond. Sarita borrowed a waiter’s cell phone to call 911.[8] [1] Talović was cornered and was shooting at officers, until an active shooter contact team comprised of Salt Lake City PD SWAT team members arrived and shot him. Salt Lake City police officials on February 13, 2007, thanked Hammond as a hero in saving countless lives.[6]

    According to local TV station ABC 4, several witnesses reported that a majority of the shooting took place on the ground floor near the Pottery Barn store, though the majority of the dead were found in Cabin Fever, a card store. One of the victims, having been shot, apparently entered the nearby Hard Rock Cafe and told customers to lock the doors. Nothing is yet known of the gunman’s motive. Several victims were transported to local hospitals, some in critical condition.[3]

    One of the victims was a 16-year-old boy found in his car with a wound to the side of his head; another, Cedric Wilson, was grazed in the head by a bullet, but suffered only minor injuries.[citation needed]

    That’s two shooting rampages cut short by a private citizen with a gun. Yeah, it was an off duty police officer, and he brought that gun into that mall in violation of the mall rules. He wasn’t there as a police officer, he was there eating dinner with his wife.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Appalachian_School_of_Law_shooting

    Quote:
    On January 16, 2002, 43-year-old Peter Odighizuwa, a Nigerian student at the Appalachian School of Law, arrived on the campus. [1] While numerous reports stated that Odighizuwa had flunked out of school or had been suspended, Jeremy Davis, former dean and professor of law at the school, later said that Odighizuwa had withdrawn voluntarily due to poor academic performance.[2]

    Odighizuwa first discussed his academic problems with professor Dale Rubin, where he reportedly told Rubin to pray for him.[3] Odighizuwa then walked to the offices of Dean Anthony Sutin and Professor Thomas Blackwell, where he opened fire on them with a .380 ACP semi-automatic handgun. According to a county coroner, powder burns indicated that both victims were shot at point blank range.[4] Also killed along with the two faculty members was a student, Angela Denise Dales, age 33. Three other people were wounded.

    [edit] Students subdued the shooter
    When Odighizuwa exited the building where the shooting took place, he was approached by two students with personal firearms.[5]

    At the first sound of gunfire, fellow students Tracy Bridges and Mikael Gross, unbeknownst to each other, ran to their vehicles to fetch their personally-owned firearms.[6] Gross, a police officer with the Grifton Police Department in his home state of North Carolina, retrieved a 9 mm pistol and body armour.[7] Bridges pulled his .357 Magnum pistol from beneath the driver’s seat of his Chevy Tahoe. As Bridges later told the Richmond Times Dispatch, he was prepared to shoot to kill.[8]

    Bridges and Gross approached Odighizuwa from different angles, with Bridges yelling at Odighizuwa to drop his gun.[9] Odighizuwa then dropped his firearm and was subdued by several other unarmed students, including Ted Besen and Todd Ross.[10]

    There has been dispute about this account of events, with Besen saying that before Odighizuw saw Bridges and Gross with their weapons, Odighizuw set down his gun and raised his arms like he was mocking people.[11] Either way, once Odighizuwa was securely held down, Gross went back to his vehicle and retrieved handcuffs to detain Odighizuwa until police could arrive.

    Police reports later noted that two empty eight round magazines designed for Odighizuwa’s handgun were recovered. Most sources (including those quoting a Virginia State Police spokesman) state that when Odighizuwa dropped the gun the magazine was empty,[12] although some initial reports suggested the gun still held three rounds of ammunition.[13]

    That’s three shooting rampages cut short by would-be victims with guns.

    If you don’t inform yourself on a topic before posting about it, that’s not my problem.

    And yes, to get a CCW license, you have to pass a MUCH MORE stringent and extensive background check than you would if you just wanted to purchase a gun.

    It’s no one’s job here to do your research for you.

    You have a habit of showing up here and demanding that other people inform you of things as you contest their points based on your ignorance.

    Do some research then.

    How many CCW permit holders get arrested for crimes?

    It’s not hard to find but I refuse to do research for you. Do your own.

    Yes.

    Anything factually or logically untrue about my statement that from the moment a criminal assault begins, until the police arrive you are on your own?

    No?

    Didn’t think so.

    Anything factually or logically untrue about my statement that some people decide to take steps and get training and be prepared to keep themselves and their loved ones alive until the police get there, and some people decide to trust their fate to luck?

    It is true, the kind of individual who often decides to accept responsibility for their own safety and their families safety and get training and carry a weapon so they can defend themselves until the state gets there to lend a hand is on the right side of the political spectrum.

    If you are attacked and you are not armed, you are simply hoping you can

    1. run fast enough
    2. hide good enough
    3. beg tearfully enough

    In that sort of case, you had better hope there is a fire-breathing, nazi loving knuckle-dragging right-wing extremist nearby who’s decided to pay the extra money and get the extra training and go through the more extensive checking so he can carry a weapon, because he can keep you alive for the 3-5 minutes it will take the police to get there.

    Guns are used defensively millions of times a year in this country, and many times it will be a CCW permit holder coming to the defense of a stranger.

    These people actually do exist, and while the stories of them don’t make the national news, they are there:

    http://www.nraila.org/ArmedCitizen/Default.aspx

    I would encourage you to learn more about the defensive use of firearms. The media covers firearms the same way they cover airplanes: planes are only biggest news when they crash; guns are only big news when they get used for crimes, not to ward off crime.

    Plains clothes federal marshall sitting next to you unidentified: good.

    Regular citizen who passed a stringent background check, no criminal record, handgun safety training: bad.

    Thats’ how these guys think.

    It’s really no surprise that they would empathize with this murderous son of a bitch. After all, he targeted the same people they do…..

    That quote also appears in my favorite series The Sword of Truth. I think the author, Terry Goodkind, is a strong reader of Ms. Rand.

    The above quote reminds me of another (origin unclear): He who is merciful to the cruel is cruel to the merciful.
    10,

    I was -the- weird kid at my school

    So was I–& I started hating school (& ranting about blowing it up) in kindergarten. It got a bit worse for me years later–but somehow I never seem to have considered killing anyone…
