“It really is young men between 15 and 30 who are responsible the vast majority of crimes, although it is politically incorrect to say this too loudly,”he says.
Suicide bombers and the Virginia Tech killer, Fukuyama suggests,
“fall into the same demographic of young males, a lot of whom are unemployed, without a clear place in the social hierarchy. These guys have the most to gain and the least to lose by martyrdom”.And often, he adds, they are upset about girls
“whose attention they can’t get”.
Well, it's not Bush's fault after all. It's women's fault. If at first you can't fault Bush, fault women.
It is a LOT of people's fault but ultimately, it's Seung Hui Cho's own fault. He wasn't created a mass-murderer. He allowed himself to evolve into one.
There are thousands and perhaps millions of children who mirror Seung Hui Cho and who will not transpose into mass-murderers. What's so 'special' about him?
You want special; I'll give you special! Everyone of the real victims, the students and teachers at Virginia Tech, are special. Whether they survived or died, they are the lives and the personhoods we honor, memorialize, and respect. They are the innocents. They blame no one for their being at Virginia Tech and in Norris Hall for classes last Monday. And they rightly blame Seung Hui Cho for nurturing murder in his heart until it spilled over and contaminated their lives with his poison. The wound will be cleansed with the tears of the living. As the dead are laid to rest and the living are discharged from the hospitals, the healing has begun.
If you wish to lay blame, lay it at Seung Hui Cho's feet. That's right where it belongs. How can I make such a statement? Cho gave himself away with the purchase of the guns, ammo and magazines for reloading. He premeditated his murderous rampage and his suicide rather than be caught.
The saddest part of his scheme is that the bullet he saved for himself should have been the first one he shot.
