Sympathies for those grieving after the Virginia Tech massacre

I'm still trying to figure out how to react to the VT massacre. My heart goes out to those who have family or friends who died, and those those who are still healing from wounds, may you heal quickly and painlessly and be back to your normal self as quickly as possible.

This event happened on a public university campus. UCI is also a public university campus - you'll note there are no gates and the public is welcome to visit. As I've told a few people, my greatest fear is that one day the MSU's, SAS's, and their partners-in-crime's hateful rhetoric will send somebody over the edge, whether it be a case of the so-called "Sudden Jihad Syndrome", or someone on the other side (Jewish, Christian, moderate Muslim, etc.) getting over-worked by the bullying tactics.

When violence breaks out again at UCI (from what I've been told, rocks and fists have been thrown in the past and unless the situation improves on campus, violence will eventually happen again), I hope the victims sue the UCI administration for every penny they've got for letting this go on for so long (7+ years?) and not doing everything in their power to stop it.
