Jiverly Voong - Analysis and Profiling
Killings of Students and Immigrants
Historical Patterns and the modern "Lone Wolf" Murderers
This requires some study. I have no information about this Vietnamese Shooter, if he indeed is the culprit, but he seems like the Son of War ( of the Vietnam War ), probably the son of a Refugee Family from Vietnam.
My Analysis is highly speculative and uninformed but I will continue reading to make a more responsible analysis of what happened. So I can be acccused at this time with perfect reason of being irresponsible or speculative.
Wars, soldiers and refugees of war, this leaves a sequel of many psychological problems, even many decades after the Big Events. How many traumas and violence can a war generate, even many years after. We have seen many "Lone Wolves" that fought in a War and later commited horrible murders.
Let us return to this "immigrant" Jiverly Voong, and the quotes are necessary because a guy that has lived almost all his life in the USA is not a classical immigrant, like say a laborer that can not speak English. Jiverly Voong has lived in America for 28 years and is only 42. So he was brought as a 14 year old boy.
This has a certain resemblance to the Virginia Tech Murders, a Korean "Immigrant" student killed 33 students and later commited suicide. The quotes are necessary because
immigrated when he was a tender child.
For Jiverly Voong the "Immigration School" represents his life or his destiny, not elected by him, of being an "eternal immigrant". So he is destroying his own self-image and his forced destiniy.
Please observe that these events are new. One hundred years ago there were almost no "Lone Wolves" in mass murders. Only Lynchings or other "Hate Crimes", almost all of a Racial Nature, but there were no shootings in schools. Even 50 years ago these events of "Lone Wolves", killing students or immigrants, were very scarce if any.
Perhaps the stress of being a "foreign" child in a "foreign" land ( "a stranger in a strange land" ) adds to the trauma that is going to produce the criminal, but of course, this is not the only cause of murder .
