ronnychoi said:Sorry for the delayed response, my message didn't go through because of my comp. I also posted this on the Radio Chatter post about VT.
I was stating that the BPD and the VT PD could have issued much more aggressive orders to their subordinates. Such as very aggressive patrols with assault rifles on the whole campus as soon as the forces responded on site. They ONLY established a perimeter and no go zone on one building in the whole area as a response to Cho's initial decoy killings.
I know they had the means, but, my biggest concern is..why didn't they get LEO's to secure the WHOLE campus, including dorms. That's what they did in Montreal, and that ******* was cornered because of the procedures taken.
Although, this tactic may not have worked as there were 25,000 students, and the gunman could have gone on a rampage whether there was police presence or not.
Hired guns (Group 4) that would be in uniforms would also be inneffectual as they are too easy of a target and students/killers would be aware of their presence. Group 4 undercover would also be rooted out by the killer.
As for trained guns on the campus, you'd need well trained (Gunsite, Sigarms academy, IPSC) trustworthy students that are enthusiastic with the thought of being a guard with a noble cause. The only thing about this like stated previously is that, it wouldn't happen because of bureaucracy's within our two countries system.
For now, we need in the USA and Canada, kids that carry illegally who are well versed.
I for one will not feel secure with my life in somebody's hands...unless they are my trained buddy's hands of course.
And was stated previously here, the Virginia Tech Campus was quite large, (literally the size of a small town), much larger then the school in Montreal. Securing the WHOLE campus would have been quite impossible. Consider also, as stated previously, intially the police did not know the first murders were anything other than a "normal" murder. Police are not in the habit of shutting town whole towns (which essentially this campus was), for what they consider isolated incidents.
