nryan@wdbj7.com Well Jean, Keith, on the website
Smoking Gun dot com the featured
document of the day is a play
supposedly written by Cho Seung-Hui
(cho-sung-wee), who was an English
major......Now, these writings
reportedly led the school to refer
Seung-Hui to counselling....

ENG#=3 VO NAT


VO NAT The play involves a chainsaw, very
vulgar language, too vulgar to actually
share some of the play with you....and
ends with a deadly blow to the teenage
boy who is the character the play is
centered around.....

In it, the boy accuses the
stepfather of murdering his dad......it
refers to the stepfather as a
pedophile...it's ten pages long

and there's a real sense of hatred
in the writing...in fact in one part,
the 13-year-old character repeats how
much he hates his stepfather and
rambles on how he needs to kill him,
how the stepfather must die......

VO NAT END VO

most people reading this would find it

There are more than 100 satellite
trucks on the Tech Campus. They
represent media outlets from all over
the world.

Yesterday we were contacted by
stations in Tokyo, Canda and all points
in between.

There is such a media presence at
the school, many credentialed members
of the press were turned away from this
morning's press conference.

Just not enough space in the

President Charles Steger said this

comprehend and understand what he
called, the "terrible tragedy."

In addition to learning that
classes have been canceled for the rest
of the week and that Norris Hall will
remain closed for the rest of the

questions that have come up about the
university sending the warning email
two hours after the first

in this post, the viewer says AFTER
WHAT HAPPENED AT COLUMBINE, THE FIRST
SHOOTING SHOULD HAVE SET OFF SOME KIND
OF ALARM WITH POLICE.

and while there are a few questioning
the university, most of the posts read
more to this affect...

in this one, gale says "NOW I SIT HERE

"It makes everyone kind of feel
vulnerable, it's like it can happen

anywhere, to anyone and it's scary to
think that."



SECURITY SYSTEMS ALREADY IN PLACE ARE
NOT FOOL PROOF.

AT THIS UNIVERSITY IN INDIANAPOLIS -
STUDENTS HAVE SOMETHING LIKE A

PAGER WHICH SIGNALS AN ALARM TO A
NEARBY EMERGENCY POLE. POLICE KNOW WHO

HIT THE BUZZER AND WHERE ... BUT WON'T

KNOW THE PROBLEM UNTIL THEY SHOW

UP. (30)



MANY CAMPUSES USE SECURITY KEY PADS.



Nat - you put the key in this lights up



BUT AS WAS THE CASE AT VIRGINIA TECH -
THE SYSTEM IS TURNED OFF DURING

THE DAY - AND ONLY AS SECURE AS
STUDENTS USING IT. (sign: do you know

who you are letting in the building?)





AT DENVER'S AURARIA CAMPUS OFFICIALS
SAY THEY ARE CONSTANTLY UPDATING

SECURITY ... DEVELOPING AN INSTANT
WARNING SYSTEM TO BE BROADCAST ON

SCHOOL T-VS AND POP-UP ON COMPUTERS.



BUT THE SPRAWLING DESIGN OF MANY
COLLEGE CAMPUSES MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE TO

SECURE 100-PERCENT AND SYSTEMS THAT
HAVE MADE ELEMENTARY AND HIGH

MASSIVE, PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES (1:00)

another."

THERE IS REASON TO WORRY THAT A
SHOOTING SIMILAR TO VIRGINIA TECH'S

COULD HAPPEN AGAIN ... SOON. SAFETY
EXPERTS SAY COPY CATS OFTEN TAKE

THEIR SHOT WITHIN THE FIRST FEW WEEKS
OF THE ORIGINAL EVENT.



(SUPER: Ronald Stephens/Exec. Dir/ Natl

"The bench mark of the last tragedy
