    Really? If you go around saying you're going to shoot up the school even as a joke you know something will happen in today's age of all these school shootings.

    i havent heard anything on this shooting but it sounds like a lot of bull. but last week there was a school shooting near me and 36 people were killed then he shot himself and the parents of the dead victims forgave the shoot and that stuff gets under me skin! how can you simply forgive one who as taken so many of your loved one! you would have to be lying to yourself or everyone esle cause you cant just throw those feelings away

    it is against the law to arrest that man for sympathezing with the Virginia tech gunman it goes against the constitution of the United states so that guy should get off clean

    I personally feel that they are not right for arresting the guy for sympatheing with the V-tech shooter, but he needs to be watched! It might not seem like anything but it could be a possible sign that he maybe mentally disturbed. I mean we don't want anything like this to occur again do we? I say get him to get a mental evaluation, just to see if he does have tendancies to commit murder. But back to the question I have to agree that they are wrong for arresting the guy for sympathezing, after all it's not like he said he was going to do it did he?

    Actually, to quote that article again...
    Several witnesses told investigators the student said he was "angry about all kinds of things from the fluorescent light bulbs to the unpainted walls, and it made him angry enough to kill people," according to a police report. Witnesses "said they were afraid of him and afraid to come to class with him," Wiesley said.
    So it looks like he did say he was going to do it. So he wasn't arrested for expressing sympathy, he was arrested for implying threats against other people...
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    Okay thanks for posting that LenMiyata. So if the had signs of this kids mental stability why did they not look into it further? What it seems like is they would rather wait to see what would've happened or correction what did happen instead of taking action and preventing a massacre. The moment they heard that everything was pissing this kid off and students were afraid to come to class they should've investigated him and maybe this whole thing could have been prevented.

    Yeah, right!!! 36 people and it's not on the national news??? You're trippin'!

    If thirty six people got shot right now, I can guarantee you that it would be on the news the very same day--if not at least a couple of hours from that time--all across the country. Thirty six people is like a whole classroom in some schools! I think SOMEBODY besides you would hear about it.

    Anyway, back to the V-Tech guy... People who try to emulate or sympathize with someone who OBVIOUSLY had issues, and killed a bunch of folks, OBVIOUSLY have issues themselves, and need psychiatric help.

    Re: Are they right to arrest this guy for sympathezing with the VTech Shooter?

    to sympathize with a killer is quite disturbing since it says that they're encouraged or inspired by his actions. In addition he knows thinks he knows why he did it. hence it was right to arrest him in idea of preventing another tragedy from happening at V-Tech. However though whether he was planning to do such a thing is another matter.

    Thanks for the siggy Ky-lyrra
