Virginia Tech Report Criticizes University

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - An investigative panel appointed by
Virginia's governor finds a number of faults in the way Virginia
Tech officials responded to the April massacre that left 33 dead,
including the shooter.

The panel concludes that lives might have been saved if faculty
and students who were in the classroom building where most of the
shootings occurred had been notified sooner about two shootings
hours earlier in a dorm. But the review also concluded that a
lockdown of the 131 buildings on campus was not feasible.

And the panel concludes that the gunman, student Seung-Hui Cho, had demonstrated numerous signs of mental
instability but that the university did not intervene effectively.
There was strong criticism of the school's counseling center, where
Cho was referred for treatment in 2005 because of erratic behavior.
