U.S.: Virginia Tech violated law in '07 massacre
The Associated Press
Virginia Tech administrators failed to issue a timely warning after two students were shot and killed on April 16, 2007, over two hours before the gunman seized an academic building and killed thirty other students, according to a report issued by the Department of Education (DoE). Virginia Tech contended that "timely" had never been clearly defined, despite a 2005 DoE handbook which urged that warnings be made as soon as possible in the face of continuing threats.
The Associated Press and three other media organizations used FOIA to obtain the documents.
