What could be a better Halloween costume than dressing up as one of the victims of the Virginia Tech mass murder, complete with fake blood and bullet holes? WSLS in Roanoke reports:
It started with a picture on Facebook and has now created a firestorm of outrage.
Two Penn State students, dressed as Virginia Tech shooting victims, at a Halloween party have enraged people from the Virginia Tech community, as well as the entire country.
10 On Your Side has seen all of the controversial pictures. They are of two Penn State students and are extremely graphic. Both are wearing Virginia Tech t-shirts and elaborate make-up. Both have bullet holes in their bodies.
Our decision not to show you the pictures is a result of our desire to be sensitive to a community that is still grieving. We also want to show respect to the shooting victims, their families, and their friends. Showing these pictures would serve no purpose.
Read the whole report, along with access to their on-air video and other information, at the link above – including quotes from those who defend the costumes. Some commenters on a Virginia Tech site left threatening messages for the Penn State students, proving that stupidity breeds more. The Penn State Administration has denounced the display and declared it unrepresentative of 90,000 Penn State students and faculty.

A room full of 30 people let a small boy shoot them in the head one by one. They did noting to protect their own lives or the lives of those around them, even when he stopped to reload…twice. The police got all dressed up in their tough guy gear and stood around outside until the coast was clear, not wanting to endanger their own lives to save others. If we can’t mock a community full of spineless sheep like that, who can we mock?
His mother must be so proud . . .
