Killer in VT Was A Korean. Many Western Media Are feeling Disappointed

A sad incident happened in Virginia Tech on 04/16/2007, in which 33 people died. Even in such a sorrow scenario, western media did not forget to put dirty words toward China and Chinese.

It was started from Chicago Sun Times who linked the shooting with a Chinese. Then the information was adopted by many western media immediately without any further investigation.

Western media should feel disappointed when they heard that the killer was a Korean instead of a Chinese as they wished.

I feel really sorry for the victims of the killing that were used as a tool to attack China and Chinese and for the readers who were misled by the wedia.

The following report is from Chicago Sun Times.

Here on visa? The shooting rampage . . .

April 17, 2007
BY MICHAEL SNEED Sun-Times Columnist
Sneed hears authorities were investigating whether the gunman who killed 32 people in a rampage on the Virginia Tech campus was a Chinese national who arrived in the United States last year on a student visa.

The 25-year-old man being investigated for the deadliest college carnage in U.S. history reportedly arrived in San Francisco on a United Airlines flight on Aug. 7, 2006, on a visa issued in Shanghai, the source said. Investigators had not linked him to any terrorist groups, the source added.

The shooter reportedly had multiple handguns with high-capacity magazines, enabling him to kill many students quickly.

The rampage also appeared to have been premeditated since the exits in the campus buildings in which the shootings occurred were chained.

One story being investigated was that the rampage was the result of a domestic problem, and an ex-girlfriend may have been killed in the massacre. But that was pure speculation.

Investigators also believe three bomb threats on the campus last week may have been attempts by the shooter to test the campus security response. In addition, Sneed hears the gunman was described by witnesses as Asian and about 6 feet tall.

Access to Norris Hall, where the multiple shootings occurred, can only be gained through a student ID.

The man being investigated was reportedly in the U.S. on an F-1 visa (student).
