Mass Shootings Today and Yesterday

Mass Shooting Largest Since Wounded Knee, 1890
April 17, 2007

A 23 year old Virginia Tech University senior student from South Korea, Cho Seung-Hui, was behind the mass killing shooting spree of 32 fellow students and faculty who were trapped inside a campus building that Seung-Hui had chained shut. It was the deadliest shooting rampage in 117 years since the December 29, 1890 massacre of 453 innocent Lakota “Sioux” at Wounded Knee by United States army soldiers.Ballistics tests also show that one of the guns inside that building was used in another shooting two hours earlier, at a dorm, Virginia State Police said. It is unclear how authorities could allow a two hour span to occur before the shooter struck again – just five minutes from the first shooting.

Cho Seung-Hui was a student in the English department at Virginia Tech and lived on campus. During the past two weeks, false-alarm bomb threats had been called into the university and it is yet unknown if the threats were a precurser to the April 16th shooting.

In December of 1890, a U.S. army cavalry unit molested a peaceful group of Lakota near Wounded Knee Creek in present day southwestern South Dakota, stripped searched and removed even sewing needles and awls - then secretly opened fire at dawn as the victims slept with Hotchkiss guns placed on the ridges above and servicemen carbines firing at ground level – causing the murder of 453 innocent civilians. It is believed the mass murder of the Lakota paved the way to establish the state of South Dakota for the United States government. No charges were brought against the perpetrators of the genocidal action – in fact, two-dozen “medals of honor” were awarded to many of the u.s. army veterans and cavalry who committed the atrocities.
