Thank you David Ress, and the Richmond Times-Dispatch, for your investigative reporting on Virginia Tech, and for your tenacity in trying to get to the bottom of that tragedy. I hope you and your newspaper will keep digging to find the truth. Please don’t listen to the nay-sayers who want to “move on.”
We cannot “move on” and feel that our schools are safe until all the information and facts about Virginia Tech are made public. We cannot “move on” until those who showed incredibly bad judgment, such as university President Steger, are removed from office. We cannot “move on” until the university releases all the documents related to the shooting. We cannot “move on” until the police agree to cooperate and turn over all documents related to Cho’s purchase of weapons.
As long as university and police officials refuse to be 100 percent cooperative in the investigation of the events of April 16, 2007, any report or analysis of that tragedy will be woefully lacking, if not dishonest. Keep digging David Ress, keep digging.
