Cho Seung-Hui is the killer responsible for 32 deaths at Virginia Tech. Cho, a 23-year-old senior majoring in English, graduated from Westfield High School in Chantilly, Va., in 2003. He arrived in the United States as boy from South Korea in 1992 and was raised in suburban Washington, D.C., where his parents worked at a dry cleaners.

The following is a quick recap of the events and aftermath of the worst school shooting in US history:

The Timeline

Cho Seung-Hui Identified

He was a loner cho-seung-hui.jpgwho may have been taking medication for depression and was becoming increasingly violent and erratic. A student who attended Virginia Tech last fall provided obscenity- and violence-laced screenplays that he said Cho wrote as part of a playwriting class they both took. One was about a fight between a stepson and his stepfather, and involved throwing of hammers and attacks with a chainsaw. Another was about students fantasizing about stalking and killing a teacher who sexually molested them.

`When we read Cho’s plays, it was like something out of a nightmare. The plays had really twisted, macabre violence that used weapons I wouldn’t have even thought of,” former classmate Ian McFarlane, now an AOL employee, wrote in a blog posted on an AOL Web site.

He left a note behind: The Chicago Tribune reported on its Web site that the note railed against “rich kids,” “debauchery” and “deceitful charlatans” on campus. ABC, citing law enforcement sources, said that the note, several pages long, explains Cho’s actions and says, “You caused me to do this.”

    I’m sure you’ve heard the news by now about how the killer had “Ismael Ax” scribbled on his arm and he sent a package to NBC News with the return address (i.e. his address) bearing the name “A. Ishmail” — Why associate himself (a Korean whose name is Cho Seung-Hui) with Ishmael? Obviously he was cryptically indicating that he is a Muslim terrorist. Obviously “Ismael Ax” is broken foreign mangled English for Axe of Ishmael, and he is claiming to be Ishmael’s Axe or in other words, a Muslim executioner. He also made references to “martyrs” in his notes to NBC. But although NBC released the facts of what was scribbled on his arm and what the return address of his package is, they are too PC to mention what it indicates and what this means–America has been attacked again, by Islam. This is 911 all over again, but this time Bush and the media together will sweep it under the rug and make it all about gun control rather than Islam.

    It is absurd to assume that the fool had any bona fide Muslim symapathies based on one scrawl on his arm. Have you ever heard of provocation? That is what this guy is all about. Witness his statements identifying himself with the Columbine nutjobs.

    The real story here is about medication. The drug companies are in a panic, actively suppressing everything that verifies the recent FDA black box warning on antidepressants stating that they have been shown to lead in ‘rare cases’ to suicidal and homicidal tendencies. We will never know how rare until and if the companies’ internal documents are made public. see http://www.motherjones.com/mojoblog/archives/2007/04/4210_what_was_cho_se.html
