Another Virginia Tech Shooting; Alleged Suspect is Not Asian

It seems like a terrible case of déjà vu but the breaking news out of Virginia Tech is that an intense search is underway for a gunman (described as a “white male wearing gray sweat pants, a gray hat with a neon green brim, a maroon hoodie and backpack”) who shot and killed two people — a campus police officer and a student. Authorities have ordered students and staff to stay indoors and secure themselves until the shooter is found. 8Asians isn’t a breaking a news site, and ordinarily we don’t post about things when they aren’t about Asians, but we still remember the day of the Virginia Tech massacre when the news broke of a gunman– described as an Asian male and re-reading the original post and comments is a reminder of what a gut-wrenching day April 16, 2007 was for our readers.

About jozjozjoz

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank.
