The reality of dying for an education
When Virginia Tech experienced the shooting of 33 people in April 2007, I never expected to hear Virginia Tech involved in another shooting incident four years later.
A week ago, Virginia Tech Police Officer Deriek Crouse was shot and killed during a routine traffic stop. A second gunshot was heard 15-30 minutes after the initial gunshot. The second dead man is believed to be the suspect of the police officer slain.
While this case differs from when Virginia Tech student Seung-Hui Cho went on a shooting rampage in 2007, it still served as a test to see how the school would react in a time of uproar and uncertainty.
