GUEST,282RA BS: Virginia Tech Shooting, 20 dead? (432* d) RE: BS: Virginia Tech Shooting, 20 dead? 20 Apr 07

>>OK everyone, we know HOW he did it. He used guns

But WHY DID HE DO IT????????????????????????????????????????

This is not in his defense, but pertains to his situation.

The answer is not in psychosis or the "manifesto" or the serotonin reuptake inhibitors or the violent Korean movie or his pathological shyness due to a brain

Love never found him, Love never saved him.<<

He was crazy--period. He was just plain nuts.

>>He probably died a virgin.<<

Yeah so? A lot of people died virgins and didn't commit mass murder.

>>George Carlin said imagine the last guy, The guy who has it worse in some regard than everyone else on earth.

Imagine the guy who admires a girl from afar and she takes him to court for stalking and then he text messages another girl and she gets a court order to stop or the last girl who got a restraining order..3 strikes and he's out.
Having nowhere else to go except a crazy embarrased internal revenge he goes postal.<<

You're making a case for the guy doing this because he couldn't get a date and that it ridiculous. He couldn't get a date for the same reason he shot a bunch people--he's totally nuts.

>>OK this scenario is somewhat tongue in cheek,<<

Well yeah.

>>but for a really shy person who tries awkwardly 3 times to reach out to a girl, until he has to invent a girlfriend to limit the other guys' ridicule and each time he tried to date, he was taken to court.<<

First off, shyness wasn't his problem. Mental illness was. He couldn't get a date because the girls he contacted were scared of him as was everyone else. Girls don't go to the police because you asked them for a date and they didn't want to. They go to the police because they're scared of you. And from what I see, those girls had every reason to be.

>>That is some kind of luck only the "last guy" could have.
This is not in his defense, but rather, his possible situation.<<

Doesn't sound possible to me. It doesn't make sense to say that it wasn't just because he was lonely (especially when he obviously preferred to be alone) but also because he was unbalanced. You may as well say it was simply because he was unbalanced.

Lonely shy guys don't do this. A severe mental psychosis is the only thing that I think can possibly account for it.
