It is not particularly surprising the Cho Seung-Hui, the VT murderer, sent myriad documents, photos and videos to NBC news in between his two killings--in fact, it's strange that no other school murderer has done something like this until now. After all, one doesn't have to have a degree in psychology to see that murdering 32 people is a call for attention, and so it makes perfect sense to me that Seung-Hui would send his "manifesto" out for us all to see. Watching the video of Cho Seung-Hui's rant, I became deeply depressed--even more depressed than I was when I first heard about the killings. What comes across right away is that Seung-Hui has no idea what he's talking about; his logic is completely confused. He bandies around terms like "revolution" without even knowing what they mean. He compares himself to Jesus in a way that makes no sense. In short, the "manifesto" is everything you imagined it would be. He is a parody of himself. He is a 14 year old in a 23 year old's body, pointing a gun at the camera as if he's pretending to be the bad guy in a James Bond movie.
It's 1:00am as I write this, and I'm sure this is sounding like a pretty trivial point to make about this travesty, but, for some reason, it terrifies me to think that someone would commit such an act, attract the attention of the entire world (which, as is the case with all these shooters, totally ignored him before) and this is all he has to say. Could it be that these murders were carried out so he could declare this ridiculous manifesto to us? Now that is a really terrible notion.
