think that your page is GREAT! It means so much that you take your time to
recognize the lives that were both changed forever and lost. Even though I don't
have anything really to do with Columbine I appreciate this page a lot. I also
love the poem "The New School Prayer" I am currently doing a project
for school on that poem and the Columbine tragedy. Thank you very much! ~Britney~

This web site provides extraordinary possibilities to learn about the problem of
school violence. I certainly will use as a basis for projects in my English
lessons and recommend it to my colleagues at school. Thank you very much. A

ERIC HARRIS IS MY HERO

I really like your poem "Twelve young Angels and one guardian Angel"
15 people died that day, but
you only talked about the 13 that were murdered, what about the two killers?
All they were was a product
of our schools, our expectations, our pop culture, our society. It seems today
more than ever people are becoming like ants, scurrying about their lives,
living the "American dream" to the best they can while nothing really
gets accomplished. The killers were different, they did something different,
something that changed the world forever and I will always have great respect
and admiration for them. Sure it wasn't a good thing, but it was a GREAT thing.
P.S. All the Christian BS in
your site made me want to vomit.

What about Eric and Dylan? They died too. 13 angels? 13? Only 13?

Why does the URL say http://www.columbine-angels.com/other_shootings.htm
when most of the incidents lack any mention of guns?
Are you sending a subliminal
Webmasters response: You
may want to recount the list. Going up to the first 1990 violent act in our
schools, there are 26 occurrences with guns, five with bombs, three with knives,
two with an unknown weapon and one hostage occurrence. The gun is the weapon of
choice for school violence.

I thank you for providing comprehensive information concerning Columbine.
I am upset with our Colorado
legislators for choosing to cover up rather than disclose the truth --the full
truth. They are covering up for those who failed to do their job, as well as
those who later chose to lie rather than tell the truth.
Columbine can now be added
to a long list of cover-ups. In this case, professional lawmakers covering for
professional educational administrators (at all levels), and professional law
enforcement personnel (all the way from the bottom to the top).
It's too bad the full truth
will probably never be known. Everyone involved is scrambling to cover their
individual and collective butts from lawsuits and to preserve their careers (all
at the expense of the truth).
Perhaps the Columbine cover
up is nothing more than another symptom of an immoral society in rapid decline.
The only ones really punished were those involved with helping obtain the
weapons. But what of all the persons responsible for the events that led to the
deadly decisions of Harris and Klebold? The school officials who chose to ignore
the bullying by the jocks? The law enforcement officials who chose to cover up
than expose what occurred subsequent to the van incident on January 30, 1998?
The doctor and pharmaceutical company? Jefferson county sheriffís department?
The Jefferson County school officials? Yes, Harris and Klebold are guilty -- but
so are ALL those whose made a choice to "look the other way" -- rather
than to do what was right.

Hello my name is Brittany, and I just wanted to say how awesome this website is.
It lets others know about what happened and the outreach that can be
accomplished because of this. I have recently read the book Rachel's Tears, and
now I am doing a in depth book report on it for my English class ISU, it is 30%
of my final mark, and these sites will help me reach out to others who donít
know about God!! My thoughts are with you guys!!

Comments: I think it was sad to know that these two boys felt the way they did. In a way I feel bad for them cause its hard when you have people treating you like your nothing. But they had no right to take the lives of all those people.

Comments: I just saw the movie Dawn Anna and I was so touched and made very aware of the lives changed in a matter of moments.
Comments: I think that this is an awesome website and very inspirational. I watched the movie Dawn Anna tonight on Life Time and it made me start thinking about the school shootings and thinking how horrific this day was for the families of these victims, my heart and prayers goes out to these families and to the survivors of this horrible school shooting. This comes from a mother of a beautiful 7 year old little girl who is in the 2nd grade. I just couldn't imagine how these parents felt finding out that they sent their child to a place that is supposed to protect our children to have them not return home. I pray every day that my child leaves for school that she returns home to me she is the only child I have an the only child that God has blessed me with. With deepest sympathy someone who cares.... Crystal
Comments: I love your website since I have read all of the books that Rachel's family has written and turned my life around. I was not into God since I lost my Grandmother but reading Rachel's journal I found God and she will watch over me.
Comments: Beautiful website! A great tribute to the victims!
Comments: I really like this page
Comments: Very interesting, this shooting here in MN has made me interested in finding ways to prevent these things from happening. I have 3 children and live in a small town, to tell you the truth I feel like...no way can it happen to me, and I know that's untrue. Sorry for venting, I think your website is a great tool for helping identify problem areas maybe. Thank you for your time.
Comments: This website was very helpful in a report I am doing on school violence. Thank you!
Comments: Your website is awesome and to all the Columbine victims I really look up to for bouncing back and dealing with that head on. It's really great to be able to wake up and know that if something were to go wrong at school I could handle it. Thank you so much for the hope that you guys have gave to others. It shows the real spirit of American kids sticking together and being able to handle the shooting!
Comments: I am an 8th grader & I'm about to attend high school, what happened at Columbine scares me to death! I'm terrified to go to school & take the chance of being at the mercy of someone else's hands...I feel so badly for the families torn apart by these 2 boys. I loved your website.

Comments: I am doing a book about the 1998 Kinkel shooting in Oregon (no other book has ever been written on it so far) and want to reference and give credit to your website. I cannot send you email via your link so please email to me or call me. Also check the reference to my book on my website. Best regards, Joseph A. Lieberman firstname.lastname@example.org or www.authorjoe.com
Comments: I am a high school guidance counselor and college adolescent psychology professor. One of the topics we cover is school violence. I found your website to be very informative. It is alarming to see the magnitude of school violence that has occurred over the years all written down in chronological order on one website. Since many of these incidents do not make the national news, it is sobering to see that these incidents are not isolated and in fact occur somewhere daily. This problem must be addressed.
Comments: Hi! I'm Sarah. I saw this on the MSN search and thought I'd check it out. I'm searching for stuff on Columbine, Rachel Scott and Cassie Bernall. Love in Christ, Sarah Preston
Comments: Thank you for your efforts. I will pray for Eric, Dylan, the victims, their families and the people of Jefferson County
Comments: I always love you Eric and Dylan, they were just two kids with a lot of anger the government should thank in when they said "I have a lot of anger and I will use it"
Comments: Hey thanks a lot for everything

But at least you know that they are in a better place and there finally home. It
is a hard thing to loose someone so dear to you. They are with you everyday of
your life and are watching you all the time. So don't ever think that they are
not there. Life is to short to waste it doing drugs and doing dumb stuff. As you
can see when you least expect it that could be the last day of your life or the
last time you get to see your friends and family. So don't take them for
granted. Cherish your life and those around you, because that could be the last
time you see them.

very inappropriate. We must be aware of school violence and trends in violence
in schools but how one could "enjoy" knowing of such horrific
incidents and trends is beyond me. I suggest you remove that word and possibly
suggest people work towards knowing about these things only so they can work
together towards a peaceful world - one where students, school staff, teachers
and administrators are all safe from any kind of verbal or physical attack.

Sharon: I am so glad to see that other schools are being recognized for their
fatal shootings, besides Columbine (no disrespect to Columbine's loss). Whenever
there is a new shooting, Columbine is always the one that the news goes back to.
My kids went to school with the kids that got killed in the Lindhurst High
Shooting. I would just like to say that there are other ANGELS in this country
and for them to be recognized and respected as well as Columbine's ANGELS. Bless all the ANGELS from the past and BLESS all the ANGELS in the FUTURE
(because you know that it will not stop).

from David Lessard
Society has many measures, but as it comes unto us, it can be mostly reflective, if one studies all it's comparatives there with-in it's institutions.
How truly frightening it comes to one's mind, when no comfort can be found with-in those given factors, as we try to remain complacent for our childrenís sake, while understanding, that as those tragic episodes continue to haunt us, we are truly helpless to protect those we love, and to whom are entrusted unto the care of others.
I'll tell you, I myself can't comprehend any thought now, and more so as an adolescent, to the bringing of a gun to any public place. One time, many moons ago, I remember that I had absentmindedly forgot to take this small pocket knife out of my jeans pocket, only to discover it there after arriving at school. I suffered that whole day, in the fear that somehow it would be noticed, and I'd be expelled, or be brought unto the wrath of an angry, disciplinarian father's bidding.
But, as it comes, and as it goes, that measure of society was far less liberal back then, and was a time where values and guidance came to it's youth, as we were given needed limitations, as well as received marks, and feedback unto the given studies of citizenship.
It seems now though, we've come to the conclusion that it's a good idea to let those without any comparative ability to understand what repercussion means, to be allowed to make all decisions for themselves. The chemistry with-in the mind of an adolescent just hasn't the capacity to formulate an adult action=responsibility decision. One's ability to process comparative decision doesnít develop until after puberty, or in other words, about an age range of 18 to 20.
Without proper parental guidance, and protection, as well as being given fair and defined perimeters, those that we just let loose unprepared into the world from day one, haven't any clue to what societal structure even means, nor do they find an easy way to properly place themselves with-in it, once they do.
By letting a child roam alone with-in their own life, it can only come back to them absent in understanding goals, absent in where they fit, and absent in meaningful achievement, as there's nothing allowing them to see past their own unmeasured world, nor to bring any purpose to what they do with-in it.
May we all find tolerance, and peace with-in, to forever guide us into a better future, and a far more understanding world.
(firstname.lastname@example.org):How sad it comes unto us all, whenever there's a loss of any child under any circumstance, but it becomes to be ultimately tragic, when they, the innocent, come to leave us from that of a violent death, due to the hands of another.

Most have forgotten
About the small high school
On a day so rotten
This was no April fool.
Parents were worried
Students were scared
Feelings were shared.
A shot goes off
A student scream
All silence but a cough
This was not a dream.
As the seventh anniversary passes
Those who remember turn glum
As nobody can see through the glasses
Of those who are numb.

I am a European. Shocked as I was to hear about Columbine, I can not help but feel that you ALL, as a country, are somewhat to blame for this tragedy.
Not to point the accusing finger, but if the comments posted on this page are anything to go by, you seem to be an uneducated people, unable to spell words such as "violence" , "loving" , "happened" etc.
This is not to say that you all are stupid, but maybe to look towards the government. You have elected a lying manipulator to run your country. You all need help.
Obviously, my heart goes out to the ones that lost relatives and loved ones in the two tragedies that your website concentrates on, but I cannot help but wonder if you have all missed the underlying trend.
The people that perpetrated these uncondonable acts of violence and hate were (and still are) being pushed aside by the massive machine that is your government. The two children from Columbine, though misguided in their actions, at least had the nerve to stand up and say, in a completely inappropriate way, that they felt judged and abused by their peers.
The attacks on the World Trade Centre also are inexcusable, but look at the people who are supposed to have done that. What you all call "towel heads" are an incredibly poor, uneducated and third world people. You should be ashamed that they actually brought the war to your doorstep, when you, the God-Almighty-We-Do-No-Wrong USA have been doing this for years.
Think of all the people who lost their entire homes, families and possessions during the Vietnam war.
And you want sympathy.
You need to take a good look at what's going on INSIDE your, and I misspell the word on purpose, CUNTRY, and see that you have a lot of improvements to make.
I am not a Michael Moore fan, but he has a point or two that you could look at.

(email@example.com):The book The Shooting Game by Joseph Lieberman is no longer available at Amazon.com and hasn't been for several months. Apart from lacking both footnotes and an Index or any serious attribution to his "sources", this book, while writing under the pretence of making a serious examination of the phenomenon of "school shootings", turns out to be a totally unfair, inaccurate and malicious attack upon Kip Kinkel, who, beyond any doubt, suffered from a very profoundly serious mental illness, untreated, and without which Kip Kinkel would never have committed the horrendous acts which he committed on May 20-21, 1998. I have come to know Kip over a period of nearly six years and he is in no way the person Lieberman depicts him as. This book should be given an F- grade. I use this grading method because the author of "The Shooting Game" should be trying hard to get through a 101 level course in writing, rather than pretending to be "the authority" on school shootings. In my experience, Kip Kinkel, treated for his illness is a kind, understanding and intelligent person who fits quite appropriately the description "a good person" and not the evil person depicted by Lieberman, in his malicious book. Additionally, it is questionable what the author's real intentions were in writing this book; if it was money he is out of luck; if an intelligent enquiry into the causes of "school shootings" he has totally failed to bring any light to this most disturbing phenomenon. Hence my "F-" grade.
from Aja Williams (firstname.lastname@example.org ):
):Well it's been like 7 years and I was reading about a school shooting here in PA where a milk man went in a school and tied up 10 little girls, killing 5 and leaving 5 injured and it made me think about the terrible columbine shooting. I was in 10th grade when that had happen, it was a shame. You never know what kids are thinking and what is gong through people mind. I never once looked anything up on this school until this past weekend and I never ever would want to be in that situation. From everything I have read and heard it just made chills go all through my body, my prayers till this day go out to the families. Your children were all angles and they still are angles, the angles that make sure you wake up everyday, and let you know that they will always be with you.

:I go to Australind Senior High School when you see this kind of thing on the news its other people and its real it happened you have sympathy but when you see the blood on the way to class thinking that the bells gone early and when you get out of class and there police swarming and people you know being put into an ambulance its not real any more your numb, your sure its TV Land and your dreaming but the next day at school when the whole school has an assembly and your friends are crying its real again but it hurts now the numb is gone. Before this I thought is was an American thing to bring guns or knifes too school now I know itís a fear thing. Children are no longer safe and have there innocence ripped away as they are born in to this world of horror and impurity of mind and soul from a young age we are teaching our children superficiality and pride. As if we are any better than the murderers in jail or the people in the peace core or the rock stars on TV were all the same with black hair pink hair red hair green hair black clothes pink clothes red clothes green clothes this is all the same. Even after what happened at our school yesterday at school I got my head smashed into my boyfriends and then his too the ground because my hair is pink and he has a Mohawk, were so called emos, That gives everyone the right too call us names and tell people we self harm my friends and I have never self harmed, we are happy and perky just like every other teenager we just dress different. I donít understand whatís wrong with our society when I canít go to class what out getting yelled at or jumped on. I go to a good school and learn wholesome normal educational things but the students at our school are racist sexist homophobic socialist and just plain stupid and superficial

Comments from Andre (firstname.lastname@example.org): What I get a kick out of is Evan Todd's father's respect life license plate. I guess we all forgot what his Evan Todd said: "Columbine is a clean, good place except for those rejects. Most kids didn't want them there. They were into witchcraft. They were into voodoo dolls. Sure, we teased them. But what do you expect with kids who come to school with weird hairdos and horns on their hats? It's not just jocks; the whole school's disgusted with them. They're a bunch of homos, grabbing each other's private parts. If you want to get rid of someone, usually you tease them. So the whole school would call them homos, and when they did something sick, we'd tell them, 'You're sick and that's wrong.' " - Evan Todd (255 lb defensive lineman), TIME, DEC 20, 1999. http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,992873-12,00.html I guess we kind of forgot that one while we went on to praise the shiny new "Respect Life" license plates.

Comments from Andre (email@example.com): D. MacDonald, Kip Kinkel and Eric Harris both shared something in common. http://www.slate.com/id/2099203 [Eric] Harris' pattern of grandiosity, glibness, contempt, lack of empathy, and superiority read like the bullet points on Hare's Psychopath Checklist and convinced Fuselier and the other leading psychiatrists close to the case that [Eric] Harris was a psychopath. Kip wasn't the only person who lacked treatment. But then again, even that article on the columbine massacre says, that Eric Harris if he hasn't done what he did would have ended up becoming a bigger menace in society. More than likely a serial killer. Dave Cullen the author of the Article is coming out with a book about this sometime later this year. I don't agree with all his assessments but he did have some good points

Comments from Donald Van Deusen (email@example.com): David A. MacDonald of Toronto, Canada has got it all wrong (see his comments above or below). He says " The Shooting Game by Joseph Lieberman is no longer available at Amazon.com and hasn't been for several months." Idiot! The book was popular it is going into another printing. Sometimes Amazon gets sold out, but they soon have more. It is the BEST book on school shooting EVER! The bigger problem is that MacDonald seems to be in love with killer Kip Kinkel. I mean, really, does he seriously believe ďKip Kinkel is a good person who is kind and thoughtful and who would never have committed the acts of May 20 and 21, 1998 had he not been profoundly mentally ill.Ē Sure he was insane to a degree, but Kip had a history of violence going back to kindergarten. Lots of people are bipolar but they don't shoot their parents and kids at school. Kip was just an animal. He wrote in his diary: ďI am so full of rage that I feel I could snap at any moment. I think about it every day. Blowing the school up or just taking the easy way out, and walk into a pep assembly with guns. In either case, people that are breathing... will stop breathing. That is how I will repay all you mother f---ers for all you put me through.Ē Kind and thoughtful? Surely only his sister still clings to that illusion. David, you are sick, sick, sick.

I hope that you do not mind but I scanned a copy of the "13 angels" poem. I am also a senior and I fear that some dumb kid is going to turn my school into a tragedy. I do not want my family to tune in to see a another school shooting. I know that some kids at my school are lying and will not show their fear but, they too are scared and want to act strong around their friends. I personally think that every kid at my school could be an enemy. I also believe in Jesus and someone asked me, I too would say "yes." I pray that no more students will have to fear what Columbine had.

Comments from rrr: When you're being picked on, and no one isn't really interested, you have to push back. Idiot people with superiority complexes don't realize their actions, and their own stupidity, if they don't get proper feedback. Killing is wrong, at lets these douche bags off too easy - there's no afterlife whatsoever so it's better to get them repent for the rest of their lives. Long torturing, invalidating... watching as the "alpha-males" start crying and piss their pants in pain... then asking them if they feel superior anymore... that's how they'll learn, and never pick on others again, or think they're somehow superior. Less people will be walking with their heads filled with piss.

I was both a friend of Jason White (God rest his soul) and I am still friends with Wayne Boggess (whom I have lost contact with, sadly) and I know it is a difficult subject to deal with, the death of those so young. Thank you for the others, as well. I didn't know anyone at Columbine, by God my heart still hurts for them and any one who was at any of the schools that were attacked. I say thank you for those who cannot, and for those who are, to this day, still too grief stricken to say thanks. I too, still long to hear the voice of my friend; Jason was a real character and I miss talking to him as our brothers would play together. (his younger brother, Jeremy Stickle, and I still communicate often since he and my brother, Scott, have been friends since the 3rd grade.) But that won't happen. I face that when I think about Jason, Beamon, Judy and Walter. I didn't know the latter 3 personally but I know four promising futures were put out and many more were marred forever. (Nine others I believe were wounded. I may not remember that count correctly however.) Thank you, for being a balm for an injured soul. If you wish to contact me, I would be more than happy to help clarify the information on your pages for Lindhurst because there is still more to be told, and until we do stopping such senseless acts of brutality will be difficult; truth and awareness are our greatest allies in the war to stop school violence. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I hope to hear from the owner of the site so that this, and all, the stories can be told fully. LTK

Just reading the story, brought all those horrific memories right back like it was yesterday. I felt my stomach start to hurt and before I knew it, tears were falling, and my body was shaking, reliving that entire week. Mr. Piggot was the kindest, most generous and giving person any student could ever have had. There are bits and pieces missing from this story, like, Mr. Piggot and his wife would bring troubled teens home to live with them, Problems with Parents, emotional stuff, whatever you needed he would counsel us. He was working with Patrick at that time. I guess Patrick just didn't want the help that so many of us needed. That's right, we all got no counseling. I remember his memorial had to be moved downtown to accommodate all the kids who attended. Well Mr. Piggot, I still think your the best thing since Peanut Butter......

I have 2 young children and the thought of sending them to school scares me sometimes. I can't imagine the pain of losing your child like that. I would also like to say that the pain is just as great for the families of the perpetrators. I personally knew Heather Smith and her family were good friends of my family. No one would have ever thought she was capable of such violence-she was a very smart, very sweet girl. The anguish her family felt, and the guilt for the other families suffering, will always be with them. I hope that violence never has to touch anyone's life.

As a victim (see Oct 15, 1991 entry), I feel I have even more a right to speak up. Gun-free zones are a horrible idea. In my specific case, it would not have made a difference, but look at the statistics across the country. Firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens is a deterrent to crime. I was not injured by an evil weapon, but a misguided boy using it improperly. I've written my legislators in Texas asking them to co-sponsor, or at least vote for, the Open Carry bill coming before them this session. The Second Amendment was an original part of the Bill of Rights for a reason. Respectfully, John Barnett

Drugs or alcohol, their behavior begins to change, they sometimes spend big amounts of their income to support their addiction, they don't communicate as well or as much with the people around them. Alcoholism oftentimes produces this illusion that nothing has degenerated in the life of the one affected by it. But the fact that they donít perceive it does not mean the situation is not extremely wrong. The people in the addicted individualsí environment should speak up. They have created intervention to make it less hard for those individuals. It is extremely good to have a lot of people performing the intervention. The person struggling with an alcohol dependency must not perceive beforehand the intervention. The intervention frequently makes the person struggling with an alcohol dependency face what his addiction does to him and everyone around. The whole point of doing an intervention is to have the dependent individual enter an alcohol rehab. That is why itís less difficult if the people have searched for treatment centers that would fit the addicted person. Because an addicted person can be very unstable, you should be ready to send the alcoholic right away when he notices that he needs help. Thomas

I'm sorry but I think maybe Jonny Mills likes the lime light but if I remember right it was Warren Cook who had the shotgun in his face the whole damn time. all I know is that to this very moment I still know what it sounds like listening to gurgling blood and watching it shoot out there mouth.

the woodwork and the secret service reports that 80% of school shooters claimed
they were bullied. The goal for us is to make parents aware and to have
them discuss the following with their child:
1. Most of the time before something happens others are aware of it and just dismiss it.
2. Many attackers have been caught when their threats are taken seriously by those on social networks.
3. If a school threat was spotted on MySpace or Facebook would your child ignore it or report it?
4. We can be proactive or remain reactive.

My condolences go out to the family and friends of all of the victims, and to the survivors that live with memories of such a traumatic event. It's been ten years but time doesn't heal all wounds.

I am Casiana Hollers, the mother of Manuel Rodriquez' only son "Manuel Anthony Hollers" who is now going to be 20 years old July 31, 2009. My son was about to be 5 months old when his father was shot in front of Channel Islands High School in 1989. I know it's about that time that his murderer Arnel Salagubang will be going up for appeal. Never has my son in all these years received restitution for loss of knowing his father. In 1989, a lot of lives were changed due to this ignorant act, and it seems like yesterday that this all happened. The only realization of the years that has past is looking at my son and seeing him grow into the man he is. My son is in the U.S. Navy and still has the loss of never knowing his father. I appreciate the article you wrote and took interest in. Thank you so much, Casiana Hollers - the deceased ex-girlfriend and mother of his only son.

If anybody knows anything about the California State massacre in 1976, please email me. This is very important. I really need to find a way to contact the relatives of one of the victims - Deborah Paulsen. Thank you very much! Fabi.

Gilroy High School, Gilroy, California, Tuesday, October 3, 1995. While doing some follow-up on jury duty, looked this one up.. Boy, somebody really got the facts messed up on this one, makes it look like poor Marcos was almost a victim of justice gone bad. If this is the accuracy of information on this site, then what value is it. I sat in the court room the entire trial, the facts are not what you reported. During a fight at Gilroy today, 15-year-old gang member Carlos Vaca was pushed into 16-year-old Marcos Valdez, who was defending himself from another opponent. The fight climaxed when a five-inch blade found its way into Carlos. He later died from his wounds. Marcos, Pavel Zapata, 17, and Gerardo Avila, 19, were all charged in Carlos's murder.

As a PA State Trooper who is actively engaged in the prevention of violent death in our schools through security assessments and presentations, this website has been one of my go-to sites for historic and current events for several years. Although I routinely search for school violence incidents, the complacency, particularly of our media, has made it difficult to stay abreast of current events w/o spending a substantial amount of research time, which is not always available. I am greatly appreciative of this great source of information, along with other websites focused on school security. Your efforts are honorable, but more importantly, greatly effective in helping those of us who work in this field maintain our advantage regarding current events when dealing with others who are not. Thanks again for your efforts and I will end by saying that I direct those in the school and law enforcement community to this website as a matter of personal protocol.

I was there at General Brock High School that day in 1990. I actually suppose to be in that very hallway at the time of the shooting and I can say it is a day I will never forget. I can not remember what I was wearing but I can remember at first it all felt like a dream, and then we all came to realize it was not the teachers ushered us into what ever room you were the closet to and closed and locked the doors and made us sit under our desks and pleaded with us to say down and away from the windows. I will never forget our teacher Mrs. Clark sitting on the floor with us telling us about the time she worked as an English teacher in one of the jails and telling us off a riot that happened and how the inmates gathered around to protect her from harm. I recall now that it took our minds off of what was happening at the time. I was to scared to think of anything but getting out of there alive and wanting to see my family and friends. My heart goes out to anyone who has ever gone through this and I pray to god everyday my children never have to. Please stop think about you say or do before it is to late. Just wanted to say that General Brock High School Is in Burlington Ontario Canada and three students were shot in February of 1990 all three survived Thank God and the shooter was caught and convicted as an adult.

Great page, and very informative. However, at the risk of coming off like a jerk, I suggest that you comb through your entries and fix the typos. You're also lean a bit too much on colorful prose, and oftentimes it ends up obscuring details in the process. I think that you have a valuable resource here, but it's not without its rough spots. Keep up the good work though, as it's certainly appreciated.

I was only 10 years old when Larry Brown of Mount Pleasant High in San Jose was shot and killed. I went to the school just across the street - Foothill - now a part of the middle school August Boeger. We were alerted and brought inside and locked down. We were not allowed to leave, nor were our parents allowed into the school until it was secure. At the time, we only heard there was someone with a gun in the area, after our parents were inside, everyone, and I do mean everyone was briefed on the incident, and what precautions the school takes in events like these. It came to a reality that day that any of us could have been shot and killed out of rage - even by mistake. In a twisted case of irony, I ended up attending the same high school as the shooter, Yerba Buena High, for my 4-years of hell. I hated that school, and was constantly reminded that this was the school of the shooter, as I was a White kid in a predominantly Vietnamese school. Unfortunately no one remembers these events unless they were moved by them as I was. Sometimes it is better to forget, others, it is better to remember.

I'm responding to the article on Gena Lawson. You know its bad when things like this happen. But I think we have failed as parents and as a society, so lets don't be so quick to point the finger at our kids. We've all had a part in making this country the way it is. So we reap what we sow. So does two wrongs make it right / who do we have to look up to anymore / the police? The government? Ha ha. That's a joke, we're all just slaves of the system. Soon to be dictatorship. It's a wonder we're not all in the streets killing each other.

This list really ticks me off. You've got ONE story whereby you
'discover what REALLY happened', and you posted it and left the erroneous FIRST
post there to show how media tells lies. Why did you not bother to to that
for any other story?? You send such misinformation out there when you don't tell
the whole story. Joey Summerall was a renowned, particularly vicious bully at
Tavares Middle School. He was mean, and cruel. He would grab girls' private
parts, dump plates and/or trays of food on people (or maybe he'd just dump milk
all over you...depending on his mood), hurt and regularly, systematically,
terrorized people...he was just vicious, and kids hated coming to school
because of him. Kids couldn't LEARN because of him, because their entire
existence at Tavares Middle School was worrying that they'd see him and that
he'd hurt them. Nothing more. One day, the wrong kid had had enough. Keith did
get kicked out that day from home, so he was already in a bad way, and he KNEW
what he'd face when he got to school....the same, UNCHECKED TORMENT. He snapped
and that was it. He went to school and pumped 13 bullets into Joey Summerall's
chest, at school, right in front of everyone. What I remember being most
profound about it was the local news interviewed lots of the students, many whom
were bullied by Joey, and they all talked of the ugly they suffered at his
hands. I was amazed that none of them seemed really traumatized. Many were
upset, but they did the best they could NOT to show their complete and utter
RELIEF that their tormentor would hurt them no more. One girl even said as much.
She was upset, but clearly RELIEVED. But Keith has just been labeled 'bad'
for this, and that's that. And OF COURSE, the principal claimed to have absolute
ZERO knowledge of the hell these kids were enduring at the hands of this
monster. 'No clue at all' he says. They actually planted a tree for the
monster a year later. I think it should be bulldozed and if I knew where it was,
I'd chop it down myself then run it through a wood chipper, then burn the chips,
then dump the ashes at the smelliest landfill. BULLIES SHOULD NEVER BE
CELEBRATED!!!! And of course, Joey's mom and family were devastated at his
'untimely tragic death', but why didn't his mom know her son's hateful, ugly,
legacy? How did she NOT know how much pain, anguish and turmoil he continually
inflicted on others? How deeply and utterly miserable he made everyone around
him? But of course, the Keith Eugene Anderson is just 'bad', no one acknowledges
that bullies push too far, sometimes with devastating results. From day one, my
heart went out to Keith Anderson. He was going through one of the worst times in
his life, and on top of it all, he had to put up with Joey Summerall constantly
picking at him and trying to start fights.
Bullies are the scum of the earth, and I will NEVER mourn the death of a single one of them...no matter how old they are. How about you actually open up each entry to its own comment section, so that people who were actually THERE and know what happened beyond the lame one sentence you post can actually add something to it that would make this website even worthwhile.

Columbine was indeed a tragedy. The "bit" on DeKalb High School shooting 1987 I find offensive. I was there and so were my sisters and many friends. We rode the bus with both Timothy and Nathan, to say they bullied Nathan into his actions is just wrong. That young boy had issues outside of school. I never saw anyone "bully" him. He was mainly a loner that never fit and didn't appear to try to. Timothy was the exact opposite. A ray of sunshine despite his challenges. The media turned our tragedy into a "witch hunt". Its not always only one thing. It is many. Bless them both.

I was in the stairway at Maryland Park Jr. High School when Billy Ray Prevatte ran past. We heard the gunshots. Mr. Hicks was my teacher. He did not teach shop. He taught Core (a Social Studies/English) class. I think his first name was Robert. I have been looking for how long the murder served in any facility for some time.

I was there at the Spanaway shooting, 1985. All three were my
friends and to this day, 26 years later I can't stop thinking about it at
After Columbine I had horrible dreams and flashbacks. The good news is they have implemented many good security regulations for schools like lock downs.
