School/University Shooter Voices
School/University Shooter Voices

Audio recordings of various school or university shooters. Note: Elliot Rodger isn’t necessarily a school/university shooter, as his attack was only on the campus, and three of his victims were stabbed to death, not shot.  Still fits into the theme, in my opinion.

In chronological order: Kip Kinkel (1998) - Dylan Klebold (†1999) - Eric Harris (†1999) - Seung-hui Cho (†2007) - Pekka-Eric Auvinen (†2007) - TJ Lane (2012) - Adam Lanza (†2012) - Elliot Rodger (†2014) - Dylann Roof (2015)

If you want to like serial killers and school shooters, do it. It’s not wrong to be fascinated by true crime. You’re not crazy. You just have normal interests like everyone else. It’s far from wrong.

You are allowed to like what you want to, don’t let any assholes tell you you’re crazy.

Thomas ‘TJ’ Lane was the perpetrator of the Chardon High School Shooting in 2012. 5 people were hospitalised as a result of the shooting, after Lane used a .22 caliber hand gun and fired 10 rounds of ammunition in the school cafeteria. Lane claimed that he was firing randomly and that he had no specific victims in mind, however this contradicts witness statements that claimed he was targeting a specific group of kids in the cafeteria. Lane was chased from the school by a teacher and was apprehended in the school parking lot. 3 of the people struck would later die in hospital from their injuries.

Lane’s court case was marked by rude, callous and juvenile behaviour during the sentencing. Lane’s council did not present any witnesses or evidence during this portion of the trial at Lane’s request, and when Lane entered the courtroom he was wearing a blue shirt - which he would later remove to reveal a white t-shirt with the word 'Killer’ written on it in black marker. When asked to give a statement to the court Lane flipped off the audience and stated “This hand that pulled the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates to the memory. Fuck all of you.”

School shooter Thomas ‘TJ’ Lane committed the Chardon High School shooting where he shot and killed 3 students, injuring a further three, one of whom became permanently paralysed as a result of his injuries.

When police asked Lane why he had committed the shooting he reportedly replied with a simple ‘I don’t know.’

Lane’s sister, Sadie, was just as shocked at the mass shooting as everyone else, after he was sentenced to life imprisonment she stated:

'It may be hard for some to understand, but I love my brother, and hope that wherever the sentence and life takes him in the future that he can touch others’ lives in a positive way from a point of view that only he can give. The brother in the courtroom and the one that did this is not the brother I knew.’
