Does anyone know who the victims of the Virginina tech shootings are or how to find that information?

I am worried because two of my friends go there and I need to know if they are okay. Has the names of the victims been released? How would I get that information? Call the campus? Thanks.

    First allow me say that their are 15,000 scholars at that precise institution, four,000 within the dorm, and eleven,000 who live off campus. Virginia Tech the day before today had a Press convention on Fox News, and one of the crucial Authorities (there have been three), and I have no idea his name mentioned that they do have a safety method, via electronic mail, and different technical method. However the time that the incidents happened, was once within the A.M. while the scholars have been commuting. When they did arrive they felt that it was once fine to fasten down once they did arrive. Truthfully on the time of the inside track convention they have been nonetheless doing the research of the witnesses, and they didn't have all of the solutions but. That mentioned, I think they will have to have steel detectors as they do on the airports, and I.D. playing cards (ones that are not able to be counterfeited), as they're planning on doing with Passports within the United States. Secondly while an incident does arise they will have to have a noisy siren like they do in Israel, and different international locations throughout warfare time alerting folks to enter their shelters. That wll alert those who're commuting. For those that dorm they will have to have a PA method set up. These are the one measures that I can consider of, apart from strickter gun manipulate legislation. Truth to inform, it's unlucky however some thing measures are set up it kind of feels that once a deranged character, or a terrotist is found to damage folks lamentably they constantly uncover a option to paintings round any safety method that's set up. It is sort of a no win drawback, however we must do what we must do it doesn't matter what. G-d will have to aid the ones households, to be ready to triumph over the tragedy of wasting a chlld.

    If you had a need to know you would already be in touch with the proper authorities. Stop being so morbid - or are you a hearse chasing attorney? Leave the family and friends alone to grieve. If need be, they will contact you.
