At last! I’ve located the 60 Minutes interview featuring that Nate Dykeman interview.  Among other goodies; :)

  1:12 sharper senior photos of Eric posed by the bench
30:04 - Brooks Brown, Randy and Judy Brown interviews
35:51 - two more clearer Eric senior photo
34:02 - Nate Dykeman interview (yes that one!)
34:44 - Devon Adams interview - reported Eric to the school; clearly no love.

I found this 60 minutes to be pretty interesting thorough show.  They really pursue and demonstrate to us how unquestionably poor Jeffco police/SWAT handled Columbine. Lives were lost due to their lack of action.  They justify it as following the protocol they had in place which is basically a passive ‘wait and see’ response but no adequate excuses can be given to justify the lives that were lost because of their lack of flexibility in an emergency situation. Their fuck up cost their own children’s lives. Some of those cops had children in that school too!  The poor parents, two years in and filled with grief, still do not understand how police could’ve stayed outside waiting hours to get the green light to go into the school and do their job.  Even then, the cops went in on the far/east side of the school (where none of the action occurred) and slowly combed through. Such a waste of time and resources.  Today, Eric and Dylan would not at all have had the upper hand they were given by the authorities back in ‘99.  It’s amazing when you think of E and D walking around lazily in the cafeteria trying to get the bombs to explode when they could clearly see the cops surrounding the school from the cafeteria windows.  They must have continually wondered why in the back of their minds that no confrontation was happening. They were ruling the roost for far longer than any school shooter today would be allowed to.

Notorious Columbine bully brags about attacking Eric and Dylan

Evan Todd, the 255-lb. defensive lineman who was wounded in the library, describes the climate this way : “Columbine is a clean, good place except for those rejects,” Todd says of Klebold, Harris and their friends. “Most kids didn’t want them there. They were into witchcraft. They were into voodoo dolls. Sure, we teased them. But what do you expect with kids who come to school with weird hairdos and horns on their hats? It’s not just jocks; the whole school’s disgusted with them. They’re a bunch of homos, grabbing each other’s private parts. If you want to get rid of someone, usually you tease’ em. So the whole school would call them homos, and when they did something sick, we’d tell them, ‘You’re sick and that’s wrong.’””

anonymous asked:

Do you know some of the people that Eric and Dylan spared? I heard they spared a lot of people but I don't really remember any of them

Brooks Brown: spared by Eric outside of the school. When Brooks approached Eric at the school parking lot, Brooks begins pestering him about missing a big philosophy test on that day. Eric then tells him, “Brooks, I like you now. Get out of here, go home.” Leaving Brooks alone.

John Savage: During the massacre in the library, John was hiding underneath the tables. When John Savage scooted away from Eric’s gun barrel, he says, “who is under the table? Identify yourself.” John replies, “it’s me, John!” Having shared previous classes with both Eric and Dylan, they both recognized him. Dylan then approaches him and greets him. When John asks Dylan if he’s going to kill him, Dylan says no and orders him to run. 

Evan Todd: Was hiding underneath the tables in the library when Dylan approached him. They both recognized each other, as Evan use to be one of the jocks that bullied him. When Dylan asks him why he should’t kill him, Evan Todd replies saying how he “doesn’t want trouble.” Dylan then yells that he doesn’t know what trouble is, in which Evan Todd says, “that’s not what I meant! I mean, I don’t have a problem with you guys. I never will and I never did.” Evan then described how he saw Dylan’s expression change, telling Eric,  “I’m going to let this fat fuck live, you can have him if you want. Let’s go to the commons.” Eric gives one look at Evan, before they both exit the library. 

Tim Kastle: was hiding between the ceiling boards in the cafeteria’s kitchen when he spotted Dylan below him. Dylan sees him and points his gun at him until he notices it’s Tim, a friend of his.  Dylan lowers his gun and signals quietly for him to leave.

Sean Graves: (kinda?) was shot three times in the abdomen but continued running until his legs gave out by the cafeteria door. Making him halfway in and halfway out of the cafeteria entrance. When Dylan enters in the cafeteria, he steps on Sean’s back, causing him to flinch. In which Dylan says, “sorry dude” before exiting the room. (Im saying “kinda” because even though he was wounded, Dylan could’ve finished him off but didn’t.)

[If there’s any that I miss, please tell me! These are all the ones I can name off the top of my head.]
