this is what bothers me

about the VA Tech incident. People were saying that the shooter, Cho, was a loner. Does that mean that people are going to start harassing those who like to be alone? Who don’t quite fit in to the “norm” and don’t fit or don’t want to fit into society the way everyone wants so they feel safe?

All the info that’s flying around about him, and it’s the loner thing that bugs me. Because I’ve known a lot of loners who weren’t a threat to anyone. Another thing – his writings? I haven’t read any of it yet. But again, how can we say that someone’s writings are a threat versus them just writing a play or story? This could easily devolve into a slippery slope.
