Time to think

Now that all the dust has settled down over the Virginia Tech massacre, there are some, or rather, there is one important question that is going unanswered.

The first round of shooting happened at 7.15AM. The second set of shootings happened at 9.45AM (Link). A full two and a half hours after the first set. And most importantly, the distance between the two locations was few miles at best. What happened to campus wide alarm systems ?

What was the SWAT, e.t.c., doing ? Didn't anyone call 911 ? The second set of shootings claimed thirty people. In a country where people call 911 and go on alert over very trivial issues, what were they doing after hearing gun shots ?

Disturbing questions.

    adhaaney they concluded that the shooter was no longer in campus :)

    aprobably they saw the wrong guy walk out of the place in the cams or the witnesses around the area gave the wrong picture
