No surprise there. This is the USA.
But this certainly makes the University of Virginia look – if possible – even worse. This is a student who had an active university judicial case pending against him (and pending… and pending…) for gun stuff. He’d been engaged in other criminal activity, but for some reason it was all suspended sentences. His father knew he was “extremely paranoid,” and I’m thinking people on campus had noticed too. Professors? Others in his dorm?
To ask the bloody obvious: Why didn’t the school do anything about this heavily armed paranoid with a rap sheet?
Details here about how any fucking asshole can buy an arsenal in the gun-happy state of Virginia.
