    I made it through the whole thing...YES!!! And I never really paid this much attention to everything that went down. I never knew about the propane bombs. Alot of people had someone looking over them that day.

    Interesting read, but doesn't really change what I'd assumed: those kids was fucked up.

    The incident that left three police officers dead in Pittsburgh two weeks ago all started because the idiot's dog pissed on his mothers floor. And he couldn't handle his mom confronting him over it, so he went ape shit.

    If you'd have read the article you'd have seen everyone said they were great kids when adults were around. That's why parents and teachers never suspected anything.

    Hey look. Someone finally posted the story that the intelligent ones of us went and seeked out, while the media found the scapegoats (Manson, video games, and kids wearing black = evil).

    Too bad no one is going to give a shit about it anymore.

    But that's their opinion of them, not a fact.

    Aren't this coming from the same type of sources that said Marilyn Manson's music influenced them? I did a informative speech in my Speech Class years ago and found out that they didn't like Marilyn Manson from some official Columbine taskforce website. (From that point on, I tried not to believe everything the media boasts without getting it from multiple sources in different places.)

    This report did mention that they were on probation in '98.

    I also hear of a report that they (Someone) talked back to their parents and did not allow their parents in their room. Thus the belt to the behind.

    This info was also coming from the same type of source that blamed Marilyn Manson, and this article.

    I did not know the courts sealed up the records til possibly after their parents death.

    I don't get this, how are we to understand the full story. And maybe prevent something like this in the future. Knowing what the parents knew could help some parents out there in the future.

    You gotta remember, the parents of the killers are still two sets of parents who lost their kids too. But they've been turned in to villains themselves due to the media and the fact that the finger-pointing starts going after everyone ... except to the kids that did the act.

    After a tragedy happens, everyone likes to spin on their heels figuring out how it could have been prevented and then someone makes money off someone's mistake or lapse in judgement.

    I believe the parents were wrapped up in civil lawsuits for years.

    The fact of the matter is that the Columbine shootings could have been prevented if the parents, teachers and police officers weren't derelict in their jobs. As a consequence Congress passed legislation that created the legal headache we have today with Junior High and High school students who commit class A felonies that they themselves are not responsible for their actions it was because of negative influence by: Video Games, Films and Tv Shows

    Exactly.

    It was an order of things. The parents didn't want to "separate" themselves from their rather misbehaving children. All teenagers rebel, and parents do not want to lose that connection with their children, especially angsty children as these two are portrayed to be.

    But the police didn't do their job either, failing to execute on leads of stolen merchandise and threats.

    At the end of the day, it's just one giant clusterfuck of people who didn't do their job which allowed this to happen. In short? The community is what allowed Columbine to happen. yay community!

    The Dark Knight became a lot more relevant, at least to me
