This Day in the History of Local Evil

On this day in 1999, Hitler's birthday, high school anarchists Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold shot and killed 12 classmates and one teacher, wounded another 23, some very seriously, before taking their own lives at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. The response of the police, hamstrung with indecisive leadership, was less than impressive.
Conspicuous in dark shirted Klebold's hand is the execrable Intratec Tec-9 pistol in 9mm. More difficult to see is the Hi-Point 995 carbine, also in 9mm, at Harris' side. Both also carried sawed off shotguns, Harris a pump action Savage-Springfield 67H and Kelbold a Stevens 311D double barrell, both in 12 gauge. Harris shot himself in the mouth with the shotgun. Klebold shot himself in the temple with the Tec-9. I have to admit that I like it when the killers self execute shortly after their crimes. They at least know they deserve the death penalty.


How come the video says 4/20 but you posted on 4/19?

Hitler's birthday is the 20th, isn't it?
My mistake. I got it ready for the 20th, published on the 19th. Good that you caught that. Fixed now.
And you and many others continue to give the names of the killers and not of the victims. Giving the killers immortality, which is what they wanted.

It's a valid point. I'll keep it in mind in the future. I guess showing their grim ends is just more publicity. Next year I'll take your advice.
