columbine high school shootings

“The first thing I thought is, `Eric and Dylan, why did you do this?’ But also something ran through saying, `You guys finally did it. You did something”.

Erik Veik - A friend Of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold

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)

School Shooters Who Wore Personalized Shirts During Their Attacks

Eric Harris, 18, and Dylan Klebold, 17, the two perpetrators of the Columbine High School Massacre. On April 20, 1999, Harris and Klebold murdered 11 students and a teacher and injured 24 before committing suicide. During the attack, Klebold wore the black t-shirt on the left side of the photo, displaying the word “wrath”, while Harris wore the “natural selection” t-shirt on the right. The two additionally wore black trench coats at the start of the shooting. 

18-year-old Pekka Eric Auvinen, perpetrator of the Jokela School Shooting, who wore his “humanity is overrated” shirt. In November of 2007 Auvinen shot and killed a total of 8 people, injured an additional 13, and subsequently shot himself in the head. Auvinen later succumbed to his wounds in a local hospital. This was the second school shooting to take place in the entirety of Finland’s history.  

Tj Lane, aged 17 at the time of his attack, executed 3 of his male classmates and injured 3 more at Chardon High School. On February 7, 2012, the day of the shooting, Lane wielded a Ruger MK III .22 caliber semi-automatic handgun and wore a grey pull-over bearing the word “killer”. 

Lane is shown here again, later in time, at court. He had scribbled the word “killer” on yet another shirt and concealed it. After entering the courtroom Lane discarded his dress-shirt, revealing what was underneath to the family members of those he had murdered. The judge present claimed to not have seen the atrocity, otherwise immediate action would have been taken.

Bullying at Columbine: Eric & Dylan

Both Eric and Dylan:

-Name calling, especially gay slurs (There was an incident in which a jock went up to Devon Adams and said, “Why are you talking to that faggot, are you a dyke?” After she spoke to Dylan)

-Making fun of their clothing (Trench coats, combat boots)

-Making fun of their music tastes (They listened mostly to industrial rock music)

-Throwing items in class (Paper clips launched using rubber bands were common)

- Pushing, shoving (Pushed into lockers, this was proved in this home video) 

- Bottles, mostly glass being thrown at them as they smoked in the smoker’s pit.

- A cup of fecal matter was thrown at them in one incident.

- Being squired with ketchup and having Skittles candy thrown at them in the cafeteria. (They would come home with ketchup stained clothes as this happened almost daily)

- Falsely accused of carrying drugs and alcohol 

Dylan Klebold:

- Pelted with ketchup covered tampons by seniors (He told his mother this was the worst day of his life)

- Being falsely accused of smoking Marijuana to the point of being pulled out of class and having his clothes and locker searched.

- Being picked on for his interests and learning skills.

Eric Harris:

- If Eric’s gym team won a game against the jocks he would get hit several times in the face with balls 

- Frequently pushed against lockers by jocks in the hallways.

- Students joked about Eric’s Pectus Excavatum and laughed when he took of his shirt to the point where he no longer took his shirt off to change during gym class.

- Picked on for being shorter than other students (Eric was 5′9)

- Picked on for not being from Colorado.

When asked about the jocks, Dylan responded to his mother, “I’m six-four, they don’t bother me too much, but they sure give Eric hell”

There is a misconception that Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were not bullied at Columbine. The reality is that they were bullied, and those are just a few available examples. Please spread this post.

Crime scene photographs taken after the massacre at Columbine:

(1). Bullet holes scar a door inside the school.

(2). The stairs up to the 2nd floor have been stripped of carpet to remove the bloodstains in the above picture.

(3). A desk in a classroom where possessions sit 2 days on a desk as they were when the shots rang out.

(4). One of the bathrooms where students hid from the shooters.

 4. Between 400-500 reporters showed up at the school on the day of the shooting.
