The violent writings of a mass murderer are already online.

Already, a play written by the Virginia Tech killer Cho Seung-Hui, is online. Its over at the Smoking Gun. I will not reprint any of it here, if someone is interested in the mind of a sick young man, they can click the link.

What does this show us about this young man? Well, as the writeup states:

APRIL 17–The college student responsible for yesterday’s Virginia Tech slaughter was referred last year to counseling after professors became concerned about the violent nature of his writings, as evidenced in a one-act play obtained by The Smoking Gun. The play by Cho Seung-Hui, a 23-year-old English major, was submitted last year as part of a short story writing class. Entitled “Richard McBeef,” Cho’s bizarre play features a 13-year-old boy who accuses his stepfather of pedophilia and murdering his father. A copy of the killer’s play can be found below. The teenager talks of killing the older man and, at one point, the child’s mother brandishes a chain saw at the stepfather. The play ends with the man striking the child with “a deadly blow.” (10 pages)

What is so wrong is that this young man never got, for whatever reason, the help he needed.
