Courage????? Really????? I think you are mistaken it takes being a gigantic coward to kill yourself. It is true most people in there life will think about doing it some multiple times but they don't because they are not flipping morons.
People who kill themselves are weak, they leave there family in friends with a terrible scar in there lives one that no amount of anything could ever remove.
keep revering these idiots for there courage to hurt other people .... ugh...

They killed themselves so they were not captured by the police, who would do so for sure. There was certainty in the columbine case. The Columbine shooters true intention was to kill the people who had caused them so much pain, killing themselves just happened to be the end result.
Well, on the first point.... I strongly disagree with the idea that school shooters somehow enter the situation expecting it to end any other way BEFORE the first shot is ever fired. What you're suggesting here is that they get to the end of their rampage and suddenly realize,, 'Oh my..I've done it now...better shoot myself or the cops will!'. Sorry.. but to be kind? Bull Puckey. These murderous punks know exactly what they're doing and planning before the fateful day ever starts.
Specifically to the Columbine monsters. ...and I won't even give those two creatures the honor of calling them human. I'd have taken GREAT pleasure in being a cop that day with a chance to plant them BOTH personally. WHY would I say such a thing? Well... one, the idea anyone rationalizes any aspect of what they did sent my temper to the skies above. ...then I had to catch myself before really getting wild here and remember something. This happened 13 years ago, last month. That means even someone in their early 20's today was a pre-teen when those two devils went on their slaughter.
The Anti-Gun fanatics and left loonys that jumped ALL OVER that horror and tragedy for political agendas FORGOT to make much mention of THIS little detail:
There were a total of 99 explosive devices found during the Columbine Investigation. 97 of those were found at the school, in the suspects’ cars, and in their homes.
Source (Notice...collected over the summer? They planned that..for a lengthy period)
Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold failed miserably at constructing effective pipe bombs. They constructed their pipe bombs with the powder they gathered from unused fireworks and other small explosives they received as payment for working at a fireworks stand over the summer. The powder in these fireworks was mainly black powder which is a low explosive.
There are two kinds of explosives – high explosives and low explosives. Fireworks are considered low explosives since their detonation velocity is less than 100 yards/second. High explosives (like flash powder) have a detonation velocity greater than 1,000 yards per second.
The Source link shows one by one, each of the 99 IED weapons those two monsters made and where each was found. They didn't mean to simply kill a few who had made their lives less than ideal....99 bombs and many being Propane tanks mickey moused to blow, tells me they INTENDED to kill every single warm blooded person at that school that day.
The fact those two couldn't even find the intelligence between them to make sense of Jolly Rogers 'good book' or the Anarchists Cookbook is ALL that saved hundreds of children that day. The thing I'm sad about isn't that they both died there. It's that a police sniper couldn't have done it BEFORE they slowly and deliberately walked through the library, executing the remaining kids who only wanted to live another day and see their friends and family again. When I think of EVIL on two legs, THOSE two are never far from my thoughts on the matter.
...I'm assuming you simply didn't know that their firearms were simply their personal weapons and nowhere close to the intended focus of the lethal force to be delivered on an entire school...Oh..AND the First responders coming through to save them. (If they'd gotten it right...) Sometimes we are very lucky indeed that criminals and evil seems to come with the intelligence of a turnip.

I have no sympathy for this girl. She seemed to not use any critical thinking, you can't just believe everything you read about these things, you should take everything with a pinch of salt. If you thought the world was going to end, and was so certain that you would hang yourself, then why would you kill yourself anyway? Why not just die when the world ends? At least then there is a chance that you would survive because it's not true (personaly, im not a 2012 believer).
No doubt people will jump on the bandwagon and blame people here and blame people there, but the fact is that there if no one to blame, it is her fault, no one elses. I may sound like a horrid person, or someone lacking in compasion, but in all seriousness, she did it, and it was no one elses fault.

I blame the parents for not taking more notice in this girls life. She was obviously depressed and suffered from it. The parents should of talked to her and got her help. This young human was confused and used her BFF (who should of told a adult) as someone to consult with. Some BFF I have read over 500 articles, posts and seen documentaries about end of the world scenarios, but they are scenarios not facts. You could paralyze yourself by stepping off a curb the wrong way, but it doesn't mean it will happen. This girl was delusional and needed help to realize what reality is. Now this girl is dead because her pleas for help were ignored.
My heart does go out to her family though... it's just too bad they didn't involve themselves more in their child's life.
BTW this is a child we are talking about that is no longer on this plane so show some damn respect and stop calling her a coward and the likes...edit on 19-5-2012 by SmArTbEaTz because: (no reason given)

Its sucks for sure, no doubt. But lets be honest. Its survival of the fittest. With her mentality those of us that are responsible would be paying for her every bill for the rest of her life. Hate to say it, but with people like her gone, the world is ever so slightly a better place.
Your all thinking it.
