NBC News Gets Package From Virginia Tech Killer! (Video)
He ranted against Christianity.
He said, “I didn’t have to do this… I could have left… This didn’t have to happen… I did it for my children and my brothers and sisters… When the time came, I did it.”
…Crazy, Sick, Tragic!
(After thinking about this, I decided to take this video down.)
The Virginia Tech killer sent a package today to NBC News.
Local KSDK reported:
Between his first and second bursts of gunfire, the Virginia Tech gunman mailed a package to NBC News containing images of him brandishing weapons and video of him delivering a diatribe about getting even with rich people.Advertisement
“This may be a very new, critical component of this investigation. We’re in the process right now of attempting to analyze and evaluate its worth,” said Col. Steve Flaherty, superintendent of Virginia State Police. He gave no details on the material, which NBC said it received in Wednesday morning’s mail.
NBC said that a time stamp on the package indicated the material was mailed in the two-hour window between the first burst of gunfire in a high-rise dormitory and the second fusillade, at a classroom building. Thirty-three people died in the rampage, including the gunman, 23-year-old student Cho Seung-Hui, who committed suicide.
The package included a manifesto that “rants against rich people and warns that he wants to get even,” according to a law enforcement official who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about the case.
MSNBC said the package included a CD-ROM on which Cho read his manifesto.
Late Wednesday, MSNBC showed a photo from the package of Cho glaring at the camera, his arms outstretched with a gun in each hand. He wears a khaki-colored military-style vest, fingerless gloves and a backwards, black baseball cap. “NBC Nightly News” planned to show some of the material Wednesday night.

UPDATE: Cornhusker (below in comments) isn’t the only one upset with NBC’s decision to air the tapes and pictures.
NBC is experiencing some backlash.
