    Check out the washington post, in the comments all the liberals are blaming republican "rhetoric" for this shooting despite knowing nothing other than this started as a traffic stop. Also, there is inner city violence on a daily basis in this country. In cities like chicago, hundreds get shot to death every year. Why only the concern when it's on a college campus?

    At this point anything anyone says about the shooting will be pure conjecture. As to what is happening in this country, it would also be conjecture to connect this with some larger social trend. So what do you want for an answer?

    I was opening up a discussion of rampant violence in our country....

    Never mind.....go back to complaining about the 1%, the GOP, and the Newt affairs.

    What a shame. Thoughts and prayers for those involved. Thanks for sharing it, Jarhead.

    There are shootings every single day in US cities like Philly, Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, LA, and why do you act like this is only a national problem when it takes place on a college campus?

    Just 20 years ago DC would have almost 500 murders a year. That's more than 1 a day.

    I checked several networks for coverage of the VA Tech shootings. Fox reported an hour or so ago that the shooter had been captured. Of course that's not true, as I discovered when I went back to MSNBC.

    About an hour ago, a man walked into one of the campus buildings and surrendered...and all of the news outlets reported this.

    However, it has since been found that he was not the man that committed the murders...

    And all of the news media are reporting that as well.

    Fox did no different than any other news outlet. Curious why MSNBC did not report about the man in jeans and a grey sweatshirt that suirrendered.

    I guess they felt it was not important for you to know about it.
