    Yeah but wouldn't it be a good idea. Not everybody is glued in front of their computer to get such emails. Or some kind of alert system like a tornado siren or something.

    They had more than two hours to get police and campus security on the scene to evacuate the campus, the PA system is irrelevant. This shouldn't have happened like this. If they knew he was still out there...for crissake.

    How did the poor kids sitting in class know about any of this going on then. I'm sure they were'nt getting the emails & their phones were probly turned off becuase they were in class. How else could they'd been given the heads up.

    This isn't even the first time that the campus has had to deal with a shooting this academic year. It's incredibly sad that they weren't better prepared to respond.

    "The shooting was the second in the past year that forced officials to lock down the campus. In August of 2006, an escaped jail inmate shot and killed a deputy sheriff and an unarmed security guard at a nearby hospital before the police caught him in the woods near the university." (NYT)

    It is the deadliest shooting in the US. Of all shootings.

    It actually seems to be the deadliest non-political shooting in the world (at least that is recorded by wikipedia), second to Port Authur massacre.

    that was my point in post #1. it doesn't make sense that there was a 2-3 hour window there.

    It should be very possible to have caught this guy in time, or at least to have gotten everybody out of there to safety... Or at least guard them better for Christ's sake.

    It's just hard to believe that they didn't have a police force that could prevent a guy from killing over 30 people in three hours.

    Where the hell does it say this was the deadliest shooting in all of US history? Everywhere I look just says deadliest school shooting.
    Second was Charles Whitman in the clocktower in Austin
    Third was columbine.

    Right? Especially since they already had a one death warning that same morning. Plus, how the hell was this guy able to get back into the school, and have enough time to chain the doors!?

    You get police in every single building on campus, that's what you do. This doesn't make sense.

    Dare I say we are giving a small rural Virgina Police force too much credit?

    The killer's plan was exact and prolly rehearshed to a point. Critizing the police effort now is not a thing to do. I'm sure they reacted as best they could in light of what and how it went down
