Read & Download ✓ Columbine 107 The tragedies keep coming As we reel from the latest horror So begins a new epilogue illustrating how Columbine became the template for nearly two decades of spectacle murders It is a false script seized upon by a generation of new killers In the wake of Newtown Aurora and Virginia Tech the imperative to understand the crime that sparked this plagu. I used to think that the Columbine massacre would be the defining event of my generation the one friends and I would discuss years later trading where you when stories like I d heard my parents do when remembering John F Kennedy It seemed so monumental at the time I was a senior in high school the same age as the killers The media attention was omnipresent and relentless and soon even at my small town school and when I say small town I mean it not the way the news will describe a sleepy hamlet of 30000 everyone began looking askance at the outsiders the loners the kids who came to school dressed in black and roamed the halls with a look on their faces like they hated the world and it deserved itHow surreal was it to turn on the television about a year later after class in my freshman dorm room to see the students from my high school running from the building fleeing danger while news copters circled overheard Turned out the bombing incident was the result of an idiot with a cherry bomb and access to a toilet but Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold had already shown us that there is no such thing as a harmless threat when it comes to violence in high school Columbine or rather the media circus it became had changed everythingThen one day it was September 11 and I had a new definition for generation defining tragedy and Columbine stopped being something I thought about muchDave Cullen never stopped thinking about it He was a reporter on the scene that very first day April 20 1999 when bodies began dropping from library windows and no one knew what the hell was happening For ten years he followed the case the accusations of a police coverup the lives of those who survived the sorrows of the families of those who did notColumbine the book is an exhausting heartbreaking minute by minute year by year analysis snaking into the past and future from the pivot point of April 20 Meticulously he explains how everything we thought we knew about the violence that day you probably remember outcasts targeting jocks the Trench Coat Mafia Marilyn Manson is totally wrong the truth a victim of a media whirlwind that descended upon the tragedy picked up garbled rumors and incorrect assumptions and flung them onto TVs and broadsheets across the country No Eric and Dylan were not outsiders they were popular with a certain crowd and Eric even dated No they were not part of a cabal that hated jocks the killings were random and the only real target was humanity The killers didn t even like Marilyn Manson preferring KMFDM If you have read anything about the case in the last decade you probably know this already but for many the initial reporting of rumors and suppositions fueling a 24 hour cable news cycle that was just gearing up in 1999 is what they remember and has become the truth of the whole bloody affairPeople read and probably write books like this because they want to know why After a decade of analyzing police records psychological profiles and the killers own writings Cullen presents an answer but you aren t going to like it Eric Harris was a psychopath and Dylan Klebold was a manic depressive hanger on That doesn t make me feel any better Wouldn t it be easier to think those kids were picked on it was wrong but you can see it they just snapped it could happen to any of us But no Eric Harris didn t snap He was a bright kid a smooth talker and he fooled the world while he spent a full year planning his masterpiece Did you know that Columbine wasn t even a school shooting not really The actual plan was to blow up the building killing hundreds indiscriminately The guns were just an afterthought to pick off the survivors You know for fun Like Doom there s another rumor for youThis book is heartbreaking the stories of the survivors and the grief stricken nearly brought me to tears than once and not because Cullen is slick with his prose This book is infuriating details of a police coverup provide than enough evidence that this tragedy probably could have been prevented This book is strangely cathartic I hate using sports as shorthand for healing but I choked up when Columbine won the state football championships the year after the murders and the crowd of students chanted together We are COLUMBINE Reclaiming the word making it theirs againI also wonder and I am adding this a few days after the rest of the review how necessary it really is Why is Columbine such a big deal As a day it was certainly a pretty crappy day But there have been a lot of other crappy days before and since days that killed a lot than 13 people that we don t know about or can t remember It was a seismic event because we let it be one I don t think it taught anyone anything not really Except maybe how useless constant as it happens reporting was going to turn out to be I don t like that the book in essence continues to give Eric Harris exactly what he wanted which was recognition that he had done something important As an analysis of the fallout on a formerly unknown town it s less troubling As a warning against future violence it s useless since it s pretty clear there wasn t much that could be done to change the way it all turned outWhenever I see footage from 911 something I try to avoid but hey it happens my breath catches and my heart stops Every time I see those burning towers part of me thinks hopes that

Read & Download ✓ Columbine 107 Stigative eye and psychological acumen he draws on mountains of evidence insight from the world's leading forensic psychologists and the killers' own words and drawings several reproduced in a new appendix Cullen paints raw portraits of two polar opposite killers They contrast starkly with the flashes of resilience and redemption among the survivor. Right off the bat I will state that Columbine is one of the most riveting fascinating heartbreaking and revolting works of non fiction you will ever read What sets Columbine apart from all of the investigative reporting done during the aftermath of perhaps the most notorious school shooting in US history is Dave Cullen s skillful ability to cut through the mythology and hysteria surrounding the entire event Many of the myths that were accepted as fact that Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were bullied loners who sought revenge against the jocks and the elites of Columbine are irrevocably shattered Utilizing countless pages and hours of testimony from survivors and others directly involved in the school shooting including the infamous Basement Tapes recorded by Harris and Klebold just days before their rampage Cullen paints in vivid detail the story of how an idyllic suburb suddenly became a buzzword for everything that was bad about everything high school parents gun control religion etc Cullen smartly deflects the blame cast on Harris and Klebold s parents If anything the journals those two kept demonstrate teenagers have a tremendous capacity to mask their true feelings in the face of authority In Eric Harris case he masked a case of classic textbook psychopathy no amount of intervention or psychological evaluation could have revealed both his lack of empathy towards others and his massive superiority complex both which led him to eventually conclude that he was indeed like a God ready to enact his wrath on a world he deemed too stupid and lazy to live Klebold on the other hand was on the surface just melancholy but hid suicidal thoughts and tendencies and saw his own death as the only way of truly achieving any peace and tranuility in his life Apart the deadly rampage at Columbine may never have taken place together with Harris cold blooded planning and Klebold s eagerness Columbine became all but inevitableThere is blame to be cast and the villain0 of this story is the Jefferson County Sheriff s Department Their incompetence during the shooting and after inadvertently gave rise to much of the hostility and mythology that took place during the aftermath of the shooting Regardless of all the details Dave Cullen on every page painted a masterful image of the human tragedy that was Columbine We became riveted with what Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold unleashed upon Columbine on April 20 1999 Cullen reminds us that it s the who and the why of this event that gave it the gravity it deservedColumbine is recommended ready for everyone Everyone
