Virginia Tech Maniac Speaks From Grave

4/18/2007 7:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's the creepiest turn yet in the Virginia Tech slaughter. In between murders, the killer took the time to loop-in NBC news by sending an insane press kit through the mail.

"NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams" has just broadcast a chilling video shot by shooter Cho Seung-Hui.

The package included photos -- but no images of the shootings. The items were delivered to NBC this morning and were immediately turned over to FBI agents in New York.

In a manifesto, included in the package, Cho refers to the two killers behind the shootings at Columbine High School as "martyrs."

The package was postmarked at 9:01 AM ET Monday -- about an hour and 45 minutes after police say Cho shot two people at a residence hall, and shortly before he entered another campus building and killed 30 more, before turning the gun on himself.

First of all, my heart goes out to ALL those who have been affected by this horrific and senseless act of violence. This includes Cho's family. Its not their fault that their son was so sick in the head. Lets remember to keep them in our prayers as well. Secondly, this "lets close our borders" and "we hate asians" business has got to stop. The fact that Cho was Korean has nothing to do with it. Did race play a role with the Columbine shooters? Dylan was Jewish. Did we constantly refer to him as Dylan Klembold the Jewish killer? It's sheer ignorance to backlash at the entire Korean/Asian community for one man's pyscho actions. This should be a time when our entire country comes together to find ways to prevent future tragedies. This should not be a time to be pointing fingers and casting blame on foreigners and immigrants. By breeding more hate, we will continue to cultivate more violence, crimes, and loners who feel like the entire world is against them. Dont you people get it? We need to get to the root of the problem...we as a society have to change. Stop spreading around so much hate!! Hate and intolerance is what ultimately lead people down such dark roads. Until we learn to truly embrace one another and our differences, these acts will continue...the future is in our hands. God Bless Virginia Tech.

I just want everyone to know my heart goes out to all the family & friends involved in this tragedy also the parents might have some blame for this but morelikely it is the mental health system,it is absolutley horrible (even if they did try to get him help-he can not be institutionalized unless he harms someone or himself and then it is too late-he has more rights than the students he hunted down!We have to figure out a better way to handle the mentally ill!

There were plenty of signs that he would snap, his parents and sister just didn't care as long as he wasn't their problem anymore.

I say giving this guy exhalted celebrity status on TMZ is just about as vile and creepy as you can get. Poor judgment on TMZ's part, but what else is new?

This nutjob should have been thrown off campus a long time ago. I work in a college. Most administrators are a bunch of wimps who can't make a decision. Everything has to be politically correct.

College campuses do not allow guns on campus. If they had, and one person had had a gun in that hall they could have taken this asshole out and a lot of innocent lives could have been saved. Just like that off-duty cop in the mall who killed that other gunman.

We do not live in a rosy society anymore. It's time to get your heads out of your asses and start protecting ourselves and our children. It seems as if nothing has changed since Columbine.

NRA AND THE REPUBLICANS WOULD LOVE TO SEE EVERYONE WITH GUNS, ENOUGH ALREADY!!
HOW DO YOU STOP A MAD MAN WHEN HE STORMS A FRENCH CLASS AND OPENS FIRE?
HOW COULD THEY HAVE STOPPED HIM? THEY DIDNT EVEN KNOW WHO THEY WERE LOOKING FOR ...
CHO SHOULD HAVE BEEN STOPPED SOONER BUT HE WASNT
SO BY NOW, CHO WAS JUST ANOTHER FACE IN THE CROWD AND WITH HIS AUTOMATIC WEAPON THAT CAN SHOOT 15 ROUNDS AT A TIME STUDENTS AND STAFF WERE JUST SITTING DUCKS... THIS HAPPENED SO FAST MOST STUDENTS DIDNT EVEN HAVE TIME TO REACT.........

THIS IS JUST SO HEART WRENCHING...

GOD BLESS VIRGINIA TECH

MY GOD HOW DO WE PROTECT OUR CHILDREN, OURSELVES FROM INSANE PEOPLE LIKE CHO...
I DONT THINK THE ANSWER IS MORE GUNS
