"The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers."

From 630 WMAL in Washington, D.C.: How Much Is Enough?:

Thomas Fadoul wants Virginia to form a money pool modeled after the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund, which would be used to pay the families of the 32 people killed by gunman Seung Hui Cho on the Virginia Tech campus last April.

Fadoul told 630 WMAL’s Chris Core that the seven-million dollar Hokie Spirit Fund already collected by the school is woefully inadequate to meet the expenses of the victims’ families, and he is hoping to see compensation that is more in line with the amounts received by the families of those who died at the Pentagon and the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

The amounts by those families averaged around two million dollars. Fadoul is meeting with his clients this week to decide whether to move forward with a formal proposal to create a compensation fund.

Fadoul say such a fund could come from taxpayer contributions, and that fundraising efforts could include personal appeals from the victims’ families. Kenneth Feinberg, who oversaw the distribution of the September 11th funds, is now the administrator of the existing Hokie Spirit Fund.

He is recommending compensation ranging from $8,000 for those who were in Norris Hall on the day of the shooting to $150,000 for the families of those killed in the tragedy.

You people have some nerve, when are you going to start selling your homes and cars for these people? How convenient is it that the lawyer himself, Thomas Fadoul, would receive money not just from legal fees from the relatives but also due to the fact that his cousin was murdered during the massacre? How convenient is it that those who lost someone will receive over eighteen (18) times more than those that were in the building. How are those that were injured supposed to pay for their hospital bills and counseling?

In no way an attempt to minimize the lost to the families, but how many of the students were supporting a family like the police, firefighters, and other victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks?

And here’s the link for those wishing to donate. The fund will be closed for donations on August 1st.

    Virginia Tech was responsible for the shooting happening. They failed to provide Cubicle Level Protection for student study areas or warn students of a “conflict in the physiology of sight” that was discovered when it caused mental breaks for office workers in the 1960’s.

    Thirty-two people died for the lack of a simple piece of information.

    The school and Governor’s office were advised of this problem but it is unlikely any official agency in Virginia will admit their mistakes.

  2. No, the only person responsible for the shooting happening is, one, Seung-Hui Cho.
    Mr. Cho had a long history of mental illness, he didn’t have a “mental break”, and it wasn’t caused by anything at Virginia Tech.
    Now, Mr. Thomas Fadoul is complaining that private citizens haven’t given him enough money, so now he wants to take tax dollars to compensate himself for the death of his cousin and god-only-knows how much in legal fees from the less of the victim’s families.

    You are correct in one respect. The shooting was not caused by something at Virginia Tech. It was caused by something Virginia Tech did not have. That was knowledge of a “conflict in the physiology of sight” and that this problem would cause a mental break.

    Thirty-two people died for the lack of a simple piece of information. Cubicles have been used for forty years to prevent the mental break Cho had.

    There have been other shootings caused by Subliminal Distraction. The Redlake School shooting, the Atlanta Day Trader Shooting, and Jason Weed’s shooting of a mail carrier in 2001 were all caused by SD. (All these cases are covered at VisionAndPsychosis.Net.)

    There are suicides and strange disappearances every year when college students do not use Cubicle Level Protection for study areas or computer workstations. (See site pages.)

    Cho’s “mental illness” was the beginning of symptoms from his SD exposure. Interviews of roommates said he used the suite common room to study while they walked by ignoring him. He increased that activity in the month before the shooting.

    That’s the same behavior that caused mental breaks for office workers in the 1960’s when Subliminal Distraction was discovered.
