Virginia Tech Shooting: Killer Speaks

NEW: Virginia Tech gunman rants on video sent to N-B-C. NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities are going over the snarling, profanity-laced tirade left behind by the Virginia Tech gunman.

On a video Cho Seung-Hui (joh sung-wee) rants about rich "brats" and their "hedonistic needs."

He says, "Your Mercedes wasn't enough, you brats. Your golden necklaces weren't enough, you snobs. Your trust funds wasn't enough. Your vodka and cognac wasn't enough. All your debaucheries weren't enough. Those weren't enough to fulfill your hedonistic needs. You had everything."

Cho also says, "You had a hundred (b) billion chances and ways to have avoided today. But you decided to spill my blood. You forced me into a corner and gave me only one option. The decision was yours. Now you have blood on your hands that will never wash off."

N-B-C says the video was in a package the gunman apparently mailed to the network between his deadly shootings. The network says the package contained a rambling and often incoherent 23-page written statement, 28 video clips and 43 photos. Several of the photos showed him aiming handguns at the camera.
