Mass murderer Eric Harris and his friend Dylan Klebold killed themselves, 13 people and wounded more than 20 others at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999.
Eric Harris was born on April 9, 1981, in Wichita, Kansas. He moved to Littleton, Colorado, in 1993. On April 20, 1999, he and his friend, Dylan Klebold, went on a shooting rampage in their high school that killed 13 people and wounded more than 20 others. Harris and Klebold committed suicide by shooting themselves in the head in the school library.
Mass murderer Eric Harris was born on April 9, 1981, in Wichita, Kansas. Along with his friend Dylan Klebold, Harris shot and killed 13 people and wounded more than 20 others at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. The son of an Air Force pilot, Harris moved around several times as a child. While living in Plattsburgh, New York, he seemed like a regular kid, playing little league baseball. The Harris family moved to Littleton, Colorado, in 1993, after his father retired from the military. Eric slowly began to change. In his new hometown, he was a decent soccer player and wore preppy style clothing, but had a hard time fitting in at school.
During high school, Harris became close friends with Dylan Klebold, another social outcast. While Harris was talkative and volatile, Klebold was shy and reserved. But they both hated the school and its jock culture and anyone else that they believed had mistreated them – a common bond that would prove deadly. They were computer savvy and enjoyed playing violent video games.
By the second year at Columbine High School, Harris had become visibly different, dressing like the school’s outsider clique, the Trench Coat Mafia, by wearing long coats, dark clothes and boots. But he and Klebold were really only fringe members of group. Harris was often hassled by other students for his weird looks and odd behavior. Both Harris and Klebold studied German and became enamored with Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. They wore swastikas and sometimes gave the “Heil, Hitler” salute.
Unlike Klebold, Harris’ rage was often visible and apparent. Angry at a friend, he threw an ice ball into his windshield, cracking the glass, and later threatened to kill that same person on his website. The site was filled with violent tirades against anyone and everyone that Harris disliked or thought had done him wrong.
In 1998, Harris and Klebold, both high school juniors, were arrested after stealing items from a van they broke into. They were charged with theft, criminal mischief and criminal trespassing. Since it was their first offense, they were enrolled in a diversion program, which consisted of community service and counseling. They were released a month early from program in February 1999 – only two months before their rampage. Both received glowing reports at the end of the program with Harris being called “a bright young man who is likely to succeed in life,” according to an article in The Christian Science Monitor.
A strong student, Harris earned good grades, but his schoolwork often featured violent imagery and gory details. Sometime after his arrest, he began planning an attack on his school with Klebold. For about a year, the two prepared for what they called “Judgment Day.” They wanted to kill hundreds of people at their school, hoping to achieve some lasting fame while metering out their vengeance against the people they hated. Harris wrote about their plans in his diary.
Harris and Klebold learned to make bombs and acquired guns. Harris, using the nickname “Reb,” even posted bomb-making information on his website. A friend of Dylan’s reportedly helped them get three of the weapons and a co-worker from the pizza place where Harris had a part-time job assisted in obtaining the fourth gun. They even made several videotapes in which they discuss their plot, which was filled with rage, racist remarks and some concern for their parents. Possibly adding fuel to his existing rage, Harris had been rejected by the U.S. Marine Corps shortly before the killings because of his psychiatric medication. He was taking Luvox for his depression.
After months of planning, Harris and Klebold carried out their assault on their school on the morning of April 20, 1999, which was also Adolf Hitler’s birthday. They had planted a bomb in the school’s cafeteria, which was supposed to go off around 11 a.m., which was supposed to force everyone to evacuate the building. Harris and Klebold planned on shooting people as they entered the parking lot.
When the bomb failed, the two entered the school a little after 11 a.m. and began shooting. For less than hour, they terrorized the school, killing 12 students and a teacher and wounding more than 20 others. Returning to the library, where they had killed and wounded several people, Harris shot himself in the head as did Klebold a few moments later.
The nation reeled from the news of the school shootings, and both killers and the authorities response to the siege were thoroughly investigated. With many wondering about how the tragedy could have been avoided and how the police and emergency workers could have handled the situation better. Schools around the country tried to figure what they would do during such an emergency and to identify and care for potentially violent students.
Along with Eric Harris, Dylan Klebold shot and killed 13 people and injured 20 at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999.
Dylan Klebold was a child of upper middle class parents, considered gifted in grammar school. But he didn’t feel like he fit in at Columbine High School in Colorado. He and his friend Eric Harris developed a hatred of school, and on April 20, 1999, they brought guns and pipe bombs to murder as many students as they could. They killed 13 people and injured 20 before committing suicide.
Mass murderer Dylan Klebold was born on September 11, 1981, in Lakewood, Colorado. Dylan Klebold and his friend Eric Harris launched a deadly assault on their Colorado high school on April 20, 1999, during which they killed 13 people and injured more than 20. With a geophysicist for a father and a mother who worked with the disabled, he seemed an unlikely killer. His parents eventually started their own real estate management company and provided an upper middle class life for their family.
Intelligent, Klebold was in a program for gifted students at his elementary school. He was described as a shy child who loved baseball, especially the Boston Red Sox. By ninth grade, he was friends with Eric Harris and Brooks Brown. Like many teenagers, he liked violent video games. Klebold also enjoyed bowling and worked behind the scenes for school productions as a sound man. With Harris, he worked at a local pizza place for a time.
As a quiet teen interested in technology, Klebold didn’t fit in with the dominant jock culture of Columbine High School. He developed a hatred of school – a sentiment shared by Harris. The two adopted the style of the school’s outcast clique, the Trench Coat Mafia, wearing long coats, dark clothing, and looking unkempt, and reportedly hung around the group’s periphery. Although he was bright, Klebold didn’t apply himself in school and earned mediocre grades
.Klebold and Harris became interested in all things German, wore swastikas and even gave the “Heil, Hitler” salute while bowling or playing card games. They also liked to play violent first-person shooter video games and listening to such German bands as KMFDM and Rammstein. In 1998, during their junior year, the two were arrested after they broke into a van and stole some things out of the vehicle. They were both charged with theft, criminal mischief and criminal trespassing.Since it was their first offense, they were enrolled in a diversion program, which consisted of community service and counseling. They were released a month early from the program in February 1999. Both received glowing reports at the end of the program with Klebold being called “a bright young man who has a great deal of potential,” according to an article in The Christian Science Monitor.Klebold, in personal writings found after the attack, expressed suicidal thoughts and was deeply saddened by his lack of a romantic relationship. There was also a lot of rage simmering under the surface as well, which appeared in the violent essays he wrote for English class and the stories and poems he wrote for his creative writing class – all of which often featured blood, death and war. Another ominous sign of things to come, Klebold and Harris made a video of them acting as vigilantes shooting “jocks” in the school hallways for a school project.Beginning some time in 1998, Klebold and Harris began to plan their attack on Columbine High School. They acquired guns and made pipe bombs. A female friend of Dylan’s reportedly helped them get three of the weapons – the same young woman he took to the prom shortly before the killings. The fourth weapon came from a co-worker at the pizza place. Harris even posted some of their bomb-making expertise and exploits on his website under his nickname “Reb” and using Klebold’s nickname “Vodka.”They believed that their actions would bring them fame as well as vengeance. In one of the videotapes made by the pair, Klebold said “I hope we kill 250 of you” and Harris compared the killings to one of their favorite video games, Doom, as reported in Time magazine. They even discussed which director should handle the film version of their attack.
On April 20, 1999,Adolf Hitler’s birthday, Klebold and Harris began their attack. Originally, bombs planted in the school’s cafeteria were supposed to go off first, sending students and teachers into the parking lot where the two planned to shoot as many people as possible. They then intended to trigger more explosives – such as those attached to Klebold’s BMW – after ambulances and other help arrived. But the propane bombs didn’t explode so the two entered the school after 11 a.m., shooting at anyone they encountered. They roamed the school for less than an hour, killing 12 students and a teacher and wounding more than 20 others. The rampage ended after 12 p.m. with Klebold and Harris committing suicide in the school’s library.
The shootings sent shockwaves through the community and the world at large. There was an extensive investigation into the shooting and the authorities’ response to the siege. Deeply disturbed by the attack, the governor of Colorado appointed a special commission to study the events of that tragic day. The commission looked for ways to improve the handling of such crisis situations as did many other schools and states across the country.

Wow! It’s the enhanced edition released late last year in Japan too, with online co-op, new modes, New 3DS XL C-stick support, and more. This will be an eShop-only release for both North America and Europe, which, might I remind you, is 1 million times better than a Japan-only release.
As an amateur historian with interests who focuses on Civil War and both World Wars, I usually take the time to study these events, their causes and effects, and how they impact the world.
While I was cruising around Tumblr, I came across a post by a user named hyperb0rean about WW2. Since I am a History Major, I decided read what he posted. Here is the post for all to read in its entirety:
“The so-called “D-Day”, the invasion of the Fortress Europe by the allied forces of the United Kingdom and the United States of America on the 6th of June, 1944, was preluded by the Battle of Dunkirk, in May and June of 1940. When the German armed forces swept through France and Belgium in their victorious Blitzkrieg, the expeditionary army from the United Kingdom, which was sent to assist the French ally on the battlefield, made a last stand in the coastal town of Dunkirk. The German Wehrmacht was about to utterly vanquish their enemy, when the troops and tanks were ordered to halt their assault. Adolf Hitler himself decided to spare the British soldiers trapped in Dunkirk, as a good-will signal to Winston Churchill and the British people: Make peace, and stop the fratricidal slaughter among fellow Europeans! The British expeditionary force was eventually evacuated, but the United Kingdom remained at war with Germany. The soldiers, whose lives were spared by Adolf Hitler, became the core of the huge army sent over the Channel on “D-Day”. Adolf Hitler never wanted to wage war against any other nation in Europe or in America, for that matter. He was the one offering peace to the British government, time and again. Be it his proposal of peace in 1939; be it his decision to don’t conquer Dunkirk in 1940; or be it the fateful flight of Rudolf Hess on his behalf in 1941: Adolf Hitler wanted to avoid the enormous bloodshed and devastation between European nations, but it was in vain. The “D-Day” arrived; and after another eleven months of titanic struggle, the heroic resistance of the German Reich was eventually vanquished by the relentless onslaught of hostile Armies from all corners of the Earth. Even though the “D-Day” is celebrated as a day of victory among the veterans of the Allies, it is actually a day of infamy for everyone of European descent. It was on this very day that Europe, the cradle of Western Civilization and Culture, went up in flames and burned to ashes leaving us, those who were born many a years later, without a home where our souls can be at peace. It would be wrong to blame this tragedy on any of the soldiers who stormed up the beaches of Normandy, fighting their way through minefields and a hail of bullets, because they were told they would liberate Europe when in truth their enemy, the German soldiers entrenched in the Atlantikwall, were the ones defending Europe. However, courage, bravery and loyalty were to be found on both sides equally, and the fallen ones as well as the veterans ought to be treated with respect and dignity regardless on which side in the war they have been fighting. What we must remember on this day, 70 years after the Allied invasion of Normandy, is the unparalleled tragedy that arises from fratricide among soldiers who are of the same blood, descendents of the same distant ancestors, but who were mercilessly pitched against eachother not by fate but by the sinister scheme of their mutual, eternal adversary. This “D-Day” was nothing but a doomsday for Europe, when horrible woes were begotten by the brother who raised his sword against his brother. They fought valiant, they died as heroes – but their war knew no victors, only vanquished.”
Yet, after reading this post, I have to make some major corrections. It seems that hyperb0rean needs to retake history class. Yet, being the nice guy I am, I will take the time to teach him for free!
While this person is correct in their facts about the war, mainly D-Day, hyperb0rean is also very wrong on so many levels it reaches the sky. First of all, the state of Europe at the time. From 1938 to 1940, the Nazis had subjugated the Austrians, the Czechs, the Slovakians, the Poles, the Danes, the Norwegians, the Belgians and eventually the French. During this time, The Nazis were systematically murdering Jews, Poles, Slavs, the mentally/physically disabled, and various other peoples whom the Nazis hated outright. Tell me what is so honorable about murdering people because your ideology states these people were not worthy of life because they lived a certain way? Nothing I can tell you.
Then this person has the nerve to write, “Adolf Hitler wanted to avoid the enormous bloodshed and devastation between European nations, but it was in vain.” Wow, does Operation Barbarossa come to mind? How about the battles of Stalingrad? Leningrad? Moscow? I guess not. For those who are unfamiliar with the Eastern Front of World War 2, Eastern Europe was literally Hell on Earth! To give you an idea of the scale of this war:
Soviet victory, despite huge losses in men,materiel and landmass
Allied Nations: Soviet Union
Axis Nations: Germany
Weapons and Material for Allies:
2.6–2.9 million personnel
7,133–9,100 military aircraft
Weapons and Material for Axis:
3.8 million personnel
7,200 artillery pieces
Total Casualties for Allies:
4,000,000 for the Soviet Union.
When we break this down, we get.
566,852 killed in action
235,339 died of non-combat causes
1,336,147 sick or wounded via combat and non-combat causes
2,335,482 missing in action
~500,000 Soviet reservists captured while still mobilizing
3,355,499 captured by the Germans (according to AOKWehrmacht reports)
21,200 aircraft lost
20,500 tanks destroyed
Total Casualties for Axis:
167,347 killed in action for the three army groups
600,584 wounded in action for the three army groups
34,527 missing in action for the three army groups
28,445 killed, wounded or missing in action for Army Norway
11,000 captured by the Soviets (according to Red Army reports)
2,827 aircraft destroyed
2,400+ tanks destroyed
Based on these figures, it is safe to assume the Eastern Front was a War within a War.
As we read more into this, hyperb0rean writes,
“The “D-Day” arrived; and after another eleven months of titanic struggle, the heroic resistance of the German Reich was eventually vanquished by the relentless onslaught of hostile Armies from all corners of the Earth.

Pardon me while I go puke. First of all, there was nothing heroic about the Third Reich, it was a dictatorship which sought to destroy all traces of Jewry in Europe, enslave the Slavic peoples and conquer the world! They are not heroes but evil men who murdered countless peoples in the name of Nazism! As for “the D-Day”, the was NOT the name of the invasion! Anyone with a slight knowledge of WW2 would know the real name was Operation Overlord. “D-Day” was a code name for any landing!
As for the Europeans who were alive at the time, the Allied invasion was seen as a sign of relief for nations and peoples who’d been under Nazi Tyranny for over five years! The older generations of Europe still living regard those brave men who fought at Normandy as heroes because they were what lead to the End of the War and Nazism in general!!
As for the Atlantic Wall, it was built by the Nazis to keep out any potentiality invasions from the Allied nations as it was a time of war. As for “defending Europe” I guess you ignore the various resistance groups within the occupied nations and the fact many Jews, Slavs, Gypsies, and various others in the Death Camps! Defending Europe my ass!
Operation Overlord was not a “doomsday for Europe”, but a massive liberation which eventually lead to the end of the war and Nazi oppression. The brave Allied Soldiers who died that day are still regarded as heroes for their sacrifice for the Free World. Rather than destroy “Western Civilization”, it was preserved so that Free Nations would continue to exist. Free nations that allow you the freedom to write such insulting tumblr posts which insult the brave Allies that day and enable me to correct you as to why you are wrong.
