Transcript of Columbine Massacre

By Catherine Olsen Columbine High School Eric Harris Dylan Klebold Planning of Judgement Day "Eric Harris," The Biography Channel website, http://www.biography.com/people/eric-harris-235982
(accessed Jan 05, 2013).
This site is basicaly the same as the one listed above but it is about Dylan's partner Eric Harris. I learned that Eric had many issues and it iluminated reasons why this shooting happened. April 20th 1999 Eric Harris was born on April 9th, 1981, and he died on April 20th, 1999. When Eric was in high school he became very close friends with Dylan Klebold. They both studied German and became enamored with Hitler and the Nazis. Eric was very violent and he didn't have the best anger management growing up. He was put on a medication that he was supposed to be taking to stabilize his moods. Dylan was born on September 11th 1981 and died on April 20th 1999 from suicide after the shooting. As a child he wasn't really very violent. He was actually considered shy. He became friends with Eric Harris as a freshman at Columbine when Eric moved to Colorado earlier that year.
Eventually Dylan and Eric developed a hatred of school and the jocks. They both became pretty interested in Nazis and Hitler. They listened to German bands as well as learning the language. As juniors in 1998 Dylan and Eric broke into a car and stole items from the car. They were placed into a consoling class until February 1999. Eric and Dylan prepared for the shooting they called "Judgement Day." They planned to kill over 100 people at their school. They learned to make bombs and they got guns from a co-worker that Eric worked with at a pizza place. Eric and Dylan had made many videos describing their plan, which included Eric's rage, racist comments, and concern for their parents.

This site is targeted to mainly teachers, and the security of schools to see what they can change. Like the behaviors of the students. They don't want any abnormal behavior to lead to another shooting like this one. "Dylan Klebold," The Biography Channel website, http://www.biography.com/people/dylan-klebold-235979 (accessed Jan 07, 2013).
This website helped me understand more about one of the shooters Dylan Klebold. I read through this site and found things that would help me understand more of the shooting in 1999. Higher security levels Increased communication between students, parents, and teachers Zero Tolerance to bullying and threats
Increased Awareness by paying closer attention to students behavior Student privileges are limited. Some schools have had to switch to mandatory uniforms and others have to wear Ids so they can be recognized as a student or teacher at the school. It has been said that the two shooters had a little help with the shooting. Like carrying all the pipe bombs into the school. They would have had to take over 12 trips to get the 20 pound bombs into the school, and they could not fit under a trench coat. "Government Cover-ups: Columbine Shooting."
