We get letters: Be respectful to mass murderers

It’s been a while since I got some mutant mail. Back in the day I used to get hate mail from the Columbine mutants on an almost weekly basis. As the years have gone by the number of e-mails I’ve gotten from them have dwindled. I like to think that it’s because they’ve either grown up, ended up in prison or got the psychiatric help they so desperately needed.

It seems that there are at least a small cadre of mutants still out there as I received the following e-mail from my most recent post on Sue Klebold

I cannot believe that you would call Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold ‘demon spawn’, ‘coward of a son’, ‘scumbag’ and stating that these two teenagers are simply just ‘Two cowardly scumbags killed 13 people because they were egotistical selfish spoiled punks.’

That is where you are wrong, sir.
These two teenagers were bullied since they started school! The only people they killed were complete ‘scumbags’ to the both of them. Yet, you are being a bully, insulting two dead kids, being utterly rude and disrespectful not only to the dead but, to their family!
The only people that were killed were the people who bullied them senseless, even when they were nice or silent. Now, you tell me, if you were bullied since you could remember, wouldn’t you want revenge? Not only would you be vengeful, but you would also make fun of them on your blog!
It’s also pretty bad karma to make fun of the dead and be a complete douche to them and their family.
So, please, the next time you write one of your pitiful posts, think twice and be respectful.

This e-mail would be hysterical if it wasn’t so pathetic. The fact that I’m being accused of being wrong in an e-mail so full of false assumptions and myths is comical to say the least.

First of they are demon spawn, cowards and egotistical selfish spoiled punks. If they weren’t they wouldn’t have committed mass murder for the oh so egregious crime of being ‘excluded’.

Secondly the people they killed were not their so-called bullies. I don’t know where you got that idea but the majority if not all of their victims had no actual connection to either of the cowardly scumbags Harris and Klebold. Not to mention there is no concrete evidence that they were bullied but were the bullies themselves.

Actually I was bullied from the time I entered school until the time I graduated high school but I got over it. Anybody who harbors on the bullying they received in school once they get out is weak and have let the bullies win. But again Harris and Klebold weren’t bullied.

Lastly you say it’s bad karma to make fun of the dead. That’s the most comical thing of all from your e-mail. I think the karma scales weigh heavily more in my favor since it’s even worse karma to kill 13 people over nothing. That’s why your heroes keep the flames of hell burning yellow with their cowardice.

Get help.

Klebold’s mom prayed for his death

Columbine Shooter Dylan Klebold’s Parents Speak Out:

So this story has been making the rounds lately. Some guy has got some book coming out about ‘atypical children’. One of the chapters deals with kids who commit crimes. For the book the author interviewed Sue Klebold, the mother of Columbine scumbag Dylan Klebold.

The hype for the story has been that when she realized that her demon spawn was committing murder at Columbine she prayed that he would take the coward’s way out…

“I had a sudden vision of what he might be doing. And so while every other mother in Littleton was praying that her child was safe, I had to pray that mine would die before he hurt anyone else.”

“I thought that if this was really happening and he survived, he would go into the criminal justice system and be executed, and I really couldn’t bear to lose him twice. I gave the hardest prayer I ever made, that he would kill himself, because then at least I would know he wanted to die and wouldn’t be left with all the questions I’d have if he got caught by a police bullet. Maybe I was right, but I’ve spent so many hours regretting that prayer: I wished for my son to kill himself and he did.”

Nice. You should have prayed for your son to have killed himself long before April 20th, 1999.

I wonder if the author asked them if they felt any responsibility for the 13 deaths at Columbine. Even if he did I doubt the Klebolds would have felt any responsibility at all. Especially considering in the past Sue Klebold said “I haven’t done anything for which I need forgiveness.” While the Klebolds may think they have no responsibility for what happened at Columbine they do. They’re not solely responsible obviously but sometimes inaction is just as bad as the action itself.

Also as par for the course Sue Klebold even admits her own cluelessness again. When asked what she would say to her coward of a son today she replied…

“I would ask him to forgive me, for being his mother and never knowing what was going on inside his head, for not being able to help him, for not being the person he could confide in.”

To me this just shows that she feels not only no remorse for what her scumbag son did to his victims but that she still feels like she bears no responsibility in any of this. If you, your husband and the Harrises had done their jobs as parents the name Columbine would still be known worldwide as just a flower.

Thanks to my lovely and talented wife Jade for the tip.

Klebold’s mom doesn’t know what she knows

Klebold may not know what she knows:

This is an article from journalist and author Jeff Kass. He covered Columbine at the time it happened and write the book Columbine: A True Crime Story. This article is his reaction to Susan Klebold’s essay for O Magazine.

Let me share a couple of quotes with you…

But one Klebold writing I have yet to fathom occurred over one year before Columbine when Eric and Dylan were busted for breaking into a van and sent to a juvenile diversion program. Their parents were required to fill out a questionnaire, and it is unclear which parent actually wrote the answers, but the writing for Dylan’s parents appears feminine. When asked about their son the Klebolds wrote: “Dylan is introverted and has grown up isolated from those who are different in age, culture or other factors. He is often angry or sullen, and behaviors seem disrespectful to others. He seems intolerant of those in authority and intolerant of others.” The parent then crossed out the phrase, “He seems intolerant of those in authority.”

On the day of Columbine police swarmed the Klebold and Harris houses. Among them was Lakewood officer Rollie Inskeep, who spoke with the Klebolds. “When asked about guns or explosives, she (Susan Klebold) stated that Dylan has always been fascinated by explosives and guns,” Inskeep wrote in his report. “She stated that Dylan wore combat-looking boots and that he liked the look that he had established.” Then, a familiar twist. “She then recanted her previous statement,” Inskeep added, “and stated that Dylan did not really talk about explosives and guns but he just likes to have the look of the trench coat and boots.”

And what did the Klebolds do about his ordinance fixation or his anger or his intolerance? Obviously nothing. Instead they just keep making excuses for their mass murderer of a son and themselves.

Like I’ve been saying for the past 10 years, Columbine was probably the most preventable tragedy in the history of this country and all it would have taken to prevent it was actual parents and not self-involved people with a ‘not my kid’ complex.

Klebold’s mom had no inkling

Columbine killer’s mom says in essay for Oprah magazine she had ‘no inkling’ son was suicidal:

Susan Klebold, the mother of Columbine cowardly scumbag Dylan Klebold, has written an essay for Oprah Winfrey’s O Magazine about her experiences since that fateful day in 1999. I’m sure that a lot of people, especially those in the Oprah crowd, are going to say how brave she is coming forward and crap like that. I still say she’s clueless and doesn’t get it.

In her unpaid essay for O she goes on about how she had no inkling that her son was planning on killing himself.

Dylan’s participation in the massacre was impossible for me to accept until I began to connect it to his own death. Once I saw his journals, it was clear to me that Dylan entered the school with the intention of dying there. And so in order to understand what he might have been thinking, I started to learn all I could about suicide. From the writings Dylan left behind, criminal psychologists have concluded that he was depressed and suicidal. When I first saw copied pages of these writings, they broke my heart. I’d had no inkling of the battle Dylan was waging in his mind.

Like I’ve said before she sees Columbine more as her son’s suicide then she does the fact that he took place in the mass murder of 13 people. I don’t care that her selfish bastard of a son was depressed. I care more about the fact that she did absolutely nothing to prevent the massacre from happening.

If the Harrises and Klebolds actually did their jobs as parents not only their sons but their 13 victims would be alive today. Instead they were too self-absorbed in their own little lives and blaming everyone else for their kids’ issues then being actual parents. And if Columbine never happened we probably wouldn’t have had other tragedies like Red Lake and Virginia Tech.

In my opinion the blood of every victim from every school shooting that has happened since Columbine is on your hands.

Columbine depositions to remain sealed

Court upholds decision to keep Columbine depositions sealed:

The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a decision that depositions given by the parents of the Columbine shooters remain sealed in the National Archives for 20 years.

Previously U.S. District Judge Lewis T. Babcock ordered the depositions sealed after families of the victims among others had requested that the depositions be made public. The depositions were given by Wayne and Kathy Harris, the parents of Eric Harris, and Thomas and Susan Klebold, the parents of Dylan Klebold. They’re from a civil lawsuit that the family of Columbine victim Daniel Rohrbough filed against the killers’ parents.

In the new ruling attorneys argued that since the records were made by a court that they qualify under the Federal Records Act. The court disagreed stating the depositions should have been returned to the people who made them. If that had happened I’m sure they’d be nothing but ash by now.

Judge Babcock originally ruled that way stating that if the depositions were to be made public that would inspire a whole new generation of school shooters. I disagree. In case you haven’t noticed school shooters and would be shooters don’t need some depositions to find inspiration. You would need to erase the memories of Columbine and every school shooting since from everyone on the planet before they would no longer find inspiration. The private journals of both cowardly scumbag killers has been released and that didn’t cause an outbreak of shootings.

Conversely I think it would benefit greatly if the depositions were made public. We could learn from the Harrises and Klebolds mistakes in their parenting techniques on how to tell if our children are on a dangerous path like those of the killers.

Now there will just have to be a 20 year wait for that knowledge. I still say if any school shooting deaths happen between now and then that the blood will be on the hands of Judge Babcock.

The other killer's parents want records detsroyed

2nd Columbine gunman’s family not opposed to sealing records:

Here’s another shocker. The parents of the other Columbine gunman Dylan Klebold, Thomas and Susan Klebold, want their depositions destroyed but don’t oppose them being sent to the National Archives for 25 years.

Thomas and Susan Klebold’s position on the proposal, outlined in a federal court filing, is similar to the wishes of the parents of gunman Eric Harris. The Klebolds said if the judge chooses to send the documents under seal to the National Archives and Records Administration, they would like some information – such as names, addresses – blacked out.

Hmmm. I wonder whose name and address they want blacked out. Maybe if they didn’t allow their kid to plot one of the most horrific mass murders in American history then this wouldn’t be an issue.

The more I write about this story the more it makes no sense to me whatsoever. Who is Judge Babcock covering up for? JeffCo. Sheriffs or the killers’ parents? He shouldn’t be covering up for either. The decent thing to do would to be to give the victims’ families the answers they’ve been seeking. Unsealing the depositions would accomplish that.

No Apologies

A few weeks ago a columnist named David Brooks for the New York Times wrote this column which is basically just him agreeing with this column by Dave Cullen. Mr. Brooks then started receiving E-mails from Tom Klebold, Dylan Klebold’s father, which led to this piece in Saturday’s New York Times. In it, the Klebolds refuse to apologize for what happened. Susan Klebold even goes as far to say “I haven’t done anything for which I need forgiveness.” They also describe the day of the shootings as “a natural disaster” and the Klebold’s discuss the day as a suicide and not as a day when 13 random people were killed. Two quotes from the NY Times article jumped out at me…

They believe that what they call the “toxic culture” of the school — the worship of jocks and the tolerance of bullying — is the primary force that set Dylan off. But they confess that in the main, they have no explanation.

Yet they didn’t kill any jocks and I have yet to hear of the names of any jocks who allegedly bullied them. And then there was this…

“I’m a quantitative person,” said Tom, a former geophysicist. “We’re not qualified to sort this out.” They long for some authoritative study that will provide an answer. “People need to understand,” Tom said, “this could have happened to them.”

So it sounds like to me that they willing to let other people raise their child. People like Eric Harris. The impression I get is that the Klebolds are very self-absorbed. They must be to have missed obvious warning signs which they regretably admit…

“He was hopeless. We didn’t realize it until after the end,” Tom said. Susan added: “I think he suffered horribly before he died. For not seeing that, I will never forgive myself.”

Suffered horribly? At least he knew that he was going to die that day. 13 other people weren’t afforded such a luxury.

As expected parents of the true victims are not happy

“I’m horrified,” Dawn Anna, whose daughter Lauren Townsend was killed at Columbine, told The Associated Press. “I wanted an apology. I wanted a contribution to help us understand why it happened, so that it would never happen again. I didn’t hear it.”

Brian Rohrbough, father of victim Daniel Rohrbough, said he was outraged that the Klebolds likened the day of the shootings to a natural disaster in the interview with Brooks.

The best quote to sum this all up also comes from Brian Rohrbough who said…

“This was murder,” he said. “In my opinion, what went on in their home led to Columbine.”

Now if only the Klebold’s would pull their heads out of the sand and realize that.
