Today is the aniversery of the mass shooting at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. In April 20th 1999, 12 students, 1 teacher, and 2 gunmen
lay dead. It remains a topic that is seared into the memories of many folk, because of it's suddeness, because of it's sadness and because of it's
brutality. But despite this unique atrocity, despite the controversy that led on to debates about gun control, on Marilyn Manson, bullying, parental
responsibilty, the game Doom, drugs and the like, there are still unanswered questions that linger around the events of April 20, 1999.
I've went and did some research on the Columbine Shooting and I found a great site called columbine-research.info...
It's done by a small group of determined folk who have tried to gather as much information of the atrocity as they can. They are known as the
Columbine Research Task Force. They've gathered so much information that I don't have the time or the strength to examine every
every bit of information. So I will just point out the strangeness of the witness reports, contray to what the Official Version of Events say which
*Students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold planned and did the attack by themselves
*They were dressed in trenchcoats and black trousers.
*The shooting started at 11.19 am and ended at 12.08 pm. Harris and Klebold then kill themselves.
There is conflicting witness statements which are contray to what the first bulletpoint of the Official Version of Events say. Outside the school,
various witnesses have reported seeing a young bloke dressed in a white t-shirt, and a pair of jeans. Remember, that both Harris and Klebold were
dressed in black pants. Harris wore a white t-shirt underneath his trenchcoat, but he certainly didn't wear jeans. Also, many folk saw all three
at the same time, getting rid of the possibilty that it was just the two gunmen. I will put this witness report in case your interested.
Chris Wisher, student (written statement made 1.30 pm on April 20, 1999)
: "Me and my friends were about 100 yards away from the people. There
were 3 of them(
2 wearing trench coats and one wearing a white shirt. We heard what we thought was a gun and started running. Then we figered that
they were fireworks and went back. We saw one of them aim a gun at us and started shooting at us. We heard teh gun shots going by our heads so we fell
to the ground. We got up and saw the kid in the white throw what looked like grenades on the roof. That is when we got back up and started running"
Bleh, it's exhausting work but there is loads of other statements that support this statement.
Jake Apodaca, student (written statement made 1.30 pm on April 20 1999)
"Me and my friend were at the soccer field and we heard what sounded like fire crackers and we looked over and saw 3 men by the school and they were
shooting guns. One of them threw a couple of bombs on roof of school. And then they shot what looked like a shotgun at us." pg 654
There is loads and loads more information on this. Go visit the website. Cause there is alot more then it seems. There is also statements showing that
about several students saw a fellow student, but not Harris or Klebold, taking part in the shooting. He was identified by his acute acne, bad teeth,
massive height, odd way of walking. Otherwise a distinctive bloke that you couldn't confuse with either Klebold or Harris.
Bijen Monte, junior (interviewed April 30, 1999 by Agent Jerry W. Means and Agent Ricky S.Mundine, Colorado Bureau of Investigation)
"MONTE stated she was near the cafeteria when the shooting started and she saw one of the gunmen. She stated the gunmen she saw was not one of the
guys identified on television. (i.e., Harris and Klebold)"
Monte was sitting outside on the south side of the building at the time. "She thought she saw fireworks sparkling on the sidewalk, and then saw a guy
in a trench coat coming down the hill. Three kids went 'down' to the ground, and the guy in the trench coat was standing over two of the downed
kids. She stated she knew it was (redacted) in the trenchcoat, standing over the downed kids, because she recognised him...."(pg 1016-22)
The other folk who were involved in the shooting have had their names redacted. But that said, the censors sometimes slips up and occasionally his
name is snuck through untouched.
Anyway, there is more information then I can handle right now. My head hurts and I'm not sure if this is a conspiracy or not. But something is very
strange about Columbine. The police continue to release full autopsies for Klebold and the majority of the victims. Why? The balistics information has
yet to be released fully. Why? Some bullets recovered from the scene cannot be matched to the guns of Harris, Klebold or any law enforcement. Who
else was shooting that day? Some Columbine students have died in unsolved violent deaths since April 20 1999, while many report getting death threats
by telephone. There are so many hidden secrets, so many dark corners to fill an entire book, which may happen someday, but until then, the best place
to look for answers will probebly be the Website of the Columbine Research Task Force.
I hope to see some replies for this. I'd like to hear the opinions of ATSers on the Columbine shooting. Why cover it up?
