go out tor tuncn, I ne time was precisely II :UU and we neaced to my bouse because I dIdn't teet so
well and wanted to take some Tylenol. At about 11:30 we headed back for school. We were headed -1K
.iorth on Pierce when suddenly we saw a police cruiser in the middle of the roadbeside a cargo van
and a little Mazda. I figured "oh well another accident that could have been prevented and everyone
is over reacting," I had no idea how wrong I was. [ told the person driving to head in the Woodmar
neighborhood so we could gel to school using my "stealth" route. We were then passed bya bunch of
kids in a White Cherokee who were honking and waving their arms at us. [thought to myself"Crap
they wanna beat me up and we cant get away because her car is too slow" Then they honked at
everyone else so I felt a lot better I then told her to try a different way to school. We headed north on
Wadsworth then turned and went on Bowles where we eventually got to piece thestreet my school is
one. This is where I knew somethingwas very wrong,

Piece was blockedoff from this side of school as well. As we waited in a crowded intersection as
cops desperately tried to guide traffic, I saw a horde of my fellow students running towards us. t~
1'!;lled au Girl I knew and asked her what happene<i- S1ie smd"'Some ~ in blackchargediato
st!lbof~1f/j' eVdl)J\iiie!!'" I saw hundreds of"parentswho somehow foandout aboutall this.
They were running every which way trying to find their sons and daughters, It 'was a terribly
disturbing sight. I'remember specifically one little girl from my caoir ciess cryingabout howshe s~w
Ill:l1 frieu4;get shott My first thought was to get home as quickly as possible to call my Momsince r
knew she would find out aboutall this before I would, so I did just that. We did a U tum and beaded
back to my house r live about I mile from the school and counted 35 police cars passing us as we
drove, Ambulances and policecars barging over medians motorcycle cops weaving through opposite
traffic almost killing themselves Its actually quite amazing that police units can do such wide
fishtails and keepcontrol. By the time I got home and called my mom to tell her I was okay, the
.hought of what was happening hadn't quite sinked in yet

My mend called her mom and aunt and stuff. When she got off the phone, she told me her brother
and cousin were still in the school somewhere. Her brother later calledand said he got out but her
cousin was still inside

I ran into the family room and turned on the TV Every station was covering the situation at my
school. Several stanons had Ariel shots that amazed me. Of course the media blurted out a bunchof
crap about the situation that they knew nothing of; and basically made stuff up as they went along. I
never knew how much the media is full of crap about things until they talk about stuffI knowabout
personally

I live on top of a huge hil! overlooking the entire Denver Metro Area and could seethe school in the
distance 1counted5 helicopters and :2 planes circling the premises. I couldalso see Clement park
where rons of parents desperately searched to find their children The southwest side Is the part of the
school [ could vtew. The Library and Cafeteria are both on this side. Apparently this is where all the
action was taking place The entire southwest side of the school is a huge glass window Several
windows were shattered. This is basically all I could see from here.

The TV said that there were still 900 some odd students left in the school with thegunmen This is
about half the population of the student body While I watched and wondered for myselfwhat was
happening, [ knew in my heart who was responsible for this massacre. About a month ago my mends

and I went out to lunch After lunch we had the same World History class so we would talk together,
We would often pass these 1 kids who wore trench coats. Everyone referred to them .< 'he "Trench
JC.()01· 000903

Coat Matta" My tnend (;aJe referred to them as t.~e "Rarnmsrem Boyz" Whatever you wanted to
call them, you could tell they were different. Well, one day, Clae snarled a remark about Ramrnstein
.nder his breath as we passedthese 2 guys. The short one who was named Eric Harrisconfronted my
friendabout it He said "Everyday you pass me and make fun of me saying Rammstien sucks. Why
do you do this crap asshole? Whatdid I do to you?" My friend replied "Oh man your so cool, you're
my idol!" Then Enc's friend Dylan approached us seeming to back up his friend. I really didn't want
to get involved in a fight even though I knew these guys wouldn't stand a chance. I was afraid of
things they might do afterwards Erie was a short clean cut lookingkid and Dylan was a verytall
skinny guy with messed up hair He always wore the trench coat, a hat and dark sunglasses. The beIl
rang and they left and we went into class. That was the end of the confrontation.

When I got my facts straightand figured out that 2 gunmen entered the school and killed several
people I knew, I figured the Trench Coat Mafia was responsible. Many helpless cryingpeople said
they recognizedthem as this group. I was shocked to understandthat my hunch was correct. They
showed the pictures of Eric Harris and Dylan on TY Once I saw their pictures, I knewthey had no
demands or intentto leave Columbine High school alive.

This is the way I think it happened. J have heard several stories from the media, friends, and others,
but put this One together myself. .

Eric and Dylan didn't go to school on Tuesday April 20, 1999. They did attend bowling class early in
the morningtbough. Insteadthey entered the student parking lot at 11:00. Eric in his black prelude,
and Dylan in his black BMW325 that the media is trying to say makes him a rich, privileged kid It's
a crappy early 80s one and if you know what I mean about early Beemers,they do suck. They must
.ave taken a few minutes to booby trap their cars and a few other cars as well. Oncethey were fully
suited up they open fire on kids heading out in the parking lot that were going to lunch. Some sources
say they had bodyarmorstrappedto themselves. They threw bombsoutside and one even blew up his
car. After shooting outside theycharged into the Cafeteria where they must havesprayedbullets
everywhere. After shooting in the Cafeteria, they fan up the stairs, shot people in the Oh-so-familiar -
halls of Columbine High School, then entered the Library, Of course, they threw bombs allover the
place inside as weU Nobody knows as of yet how long they were in the Library Scme kids go there
during their lunch hour to study or get work done, My guess is about 30 kids were in the library as
usual that day. Theycharged into the Library, shot some people then stopped. I heard stories of kids
who escaped the library. Theysaid that the 2 gunmen told aU thejocks to stand up because "theyare
dead:" the gunmen ~ISQ claim to hate minorities as well, I think that is bullshit. I Think they wanted
to kill everyone theycould. I heard a story from one girl whosaid that one of them pulled out a knife
and said "1 have always wanted to kill someone with a knife" Then he put it away for some reason, I
have a feeling it was Eric who said this I think they shot people hiding under tables execution style.
People say they would laugh after they killed someone I guess when they figured they had enough
"fun", they took their own lives I don't know whether they were in the library for 5 minutes or 5
hours After they shot themselves, a few survivors in the libraryran out.

I guess as the gunmen were entering the school, people could hear the gunshots and explosions Take
my word for it, my school is huge, so autonties didn't know where to go [guess Mr Sanderswas
one of several teachers who was trying to guide students out of the school or at least to a secure area
within He was unfortunately shot, but managed to stagger to a nearby Science room where one of
ly friends cousin was hiding. He walked in bloody and dying where he passed out, fell down and
broke hisJaw My friend's cousin tried to keep his air passageopen for some amount of time. They
say he sat up but fell downagain a few times A few hours passed, and the SWAT team barged into

unable to be kept conscious. It was shortly after this time that I believe Mr. Sanders, my keyboarding
teacher, died. He was also a girlsBasketball coach and a businessteacher

Across the hall from the science room,there was the Choir room, where60 students stayed for 3
hours. Some moved ceiling riles to get fresh air in. A SWATteam eventually got them out as well

A guy namedNick, was somewhere in the school. He got into the ceiling and crawled to try to get
out. The ceiling gave in and he fell 20 ft. He was luckily toward the front of the school, far opposite
from where Eric and DyIan were, so he was taken to safety.

I remember seeingone studentat a window Obviously shot several times. It appeared that he was
trying to jump out the 2nd story library window and end his pain. It was the most disturbingand
moving sight I have ever witnessed in my life. What the incrediblyignorantnews crew cameramen
weren't seeing wasa fire truck just below the window that the boy was aimingfor. SWAT members
grabbed him and carried him off to safety, As he was taken from the window, his blooddrenched
sock touchedthe wall and smeared allover. I felt immense sadnessafter seeing this particular scene.
The first version I saw was this kio tryingto jump and kill himself,I later saw a better angle that
showedthe boy being pulled from the window. I guess the retard news crew cut off the scene right
before the hands of the SWAT members came into view. I learned later that His name is Patrick, a
kid I have known since 2nd grade. He once made fun of my for buying Rebok Pumps in 3rd grade
because they were 5 sizes too big.)

During the entiresiege, SWAT teams entered the school at various places and rushed to get my
classmates out For all they knew, they were rushing into the school with guns drawn and the killers
could be anywhere But, I knew that these 2 gunmen weren't silly kids influenced by games, and tv.
They were trained and had planned out this entire day. Brooks, a studentI had a choir class with
explained how he knew people involved in this "Trench Coat Mafia" At the time he spoke to me
about them, it had nothing to do with anything. It was just a random conversation that took place
several months ago. He told news crews that every time somebody messed with them Dr teased them,
they would go home and planthis thing out. It wasn't something they did after a goodday at school
according to Brooks, who had no part in it.

About a year ago, I worked at a movie theatre with one of the Trench Coat Mafia kids I wont list his
name since I don't think he had anythingto do with this. He wouldconstantly complain about rich
jocks and otherstuff that is common to hear I figured to myself "just an angrykid venting some
a.'1ger" Then one night he came into work and told me he had been chased in hiscar by so and so.
Well, turns out so and SO were athletes from my school who don't seem to have anything betterdo to
than torment this dude

I can see why the fellow I worked with hated Columbine High School. I Can safely say that I don't
think he took pan in the Terror that was created a few days ago I don't think he was a corrupt kid
either. I thinkthat Eric and Dylan were the only ones involvedthat I knew about Although now
police are saying they found 30 explosive devices in backpacks, underbodies, and Inside lockers, 50
they probabl y were not in it alone These devices had been planted before the gunmen entered the
school

If other members of this "Trench Coat Mafia" were treated like my past co-worker, then this is their
only "motive" for doing what they did a few days ago. They were 2 outcast kidsthat were constantly
made fun of, and they finally snapped. What they were thinkingbefore they performed this horror

all pain inside their heads thatthey couldn't deal with, Someblame parents, other students, the NRA, JI\
or whatever No! They weren't man enough to deal with their misfortunes, so they took the easyway
out.

Duringthe disasterat my school The names ofthe dead where withheldfor various reasons, Having
an idea who was in that library was the worst feeling I haveever had to deal with, A friend told me
that Patrickhad been shot He was alive and taken to the hospital. Another person told me that
Rachel Scott was dead, I remember Rachel being a very warm, caring, a funny person. She was an
actor, a smger, and had a longfuture ahead of her, It was all brought to a halt r rememberwhen we
were sophmcres when we had to disect these baby pig festus's. She Was really scared and shaking
when they put the pig down in the disection tray, So r tied 2 stings to the pigs arms and made it
dance around and sing songs, She thought it Was really funnyand soon started cuttingthis poor dead
pig apart in at! kinds of strange ways. She was also a very talentedsinger, She was an alto in my
choir class when we were sophmores. I heard thar the gunmen didnt actuallygo through the front of
the cafateria, but instead walked around and up the stairs where the mediashowed footage of all the
kinds running out of the school. [ believe that the gunmen enteredthe upperdoors where Rachel and
a boy name Richardwere Richard was quickly gunned down, but didn'tdie, Richard says that he
heard the gunmen ask Rachel if she believed in god, she said "yes" and they soon ended her life,
Rachel was a victim of a pair of outcasts pouring out their poison on innocent lives, I now knowthat
if Rachel can perish,anyone can perish and there is nothing we can do about it.

[ foundtremendous torment whenI remembered that a girl named Cassie was in the library at this
time for sure, I was absolutely sure she was in the library whenthe gunmen entered"

When I wasa sophomore, [ noticed a new girl in class, Apparently her name was Cassie and she was
very prettyand quite, At the time I didn't take much nonce to her since my attentionwas usually
drawn to Ms. Haggard who always caught me mouthing off or doing something I shouldn't have been
doing. Then we were givenan assignment where you had to pick a partner and write about something
I cannot remember I was absentwhen we chose partners, so I wrote about how I loved
snowboarding, Each groupof 2 had to stand up and read their paper I read mineand as usual was
yelled at by 1'1,,"5, Haggard for screwing around and not writing about the correct topic, Then Cassie
stood up and read her paper alonebecause she didn't have a partner It was about how she was new
in Columbine High School and she tried to explain how unfairit was to have to do a partner
assignment when you don't knowanybody She read her paper with great confidence and didn't care
what anyone thought After she sat down, some students grumbled and whispered negative
comments Two of my friends even took pan in this sickening display, but not L There was
something about this girl that wrote this paper that caused me to stayquite. [ wanted to approach her
and talk to her everyday of thatsemester after she read that paper, but I neverdid, I have never had a
problem goingup and talking to someone in my entire life until she came along, Weeks past,then
months, then the semester ended,

Years past, and I still see Cassie In the hall periodically Then a few months ago A gir! i knew who is
friends with Cassie told me I should talk to her because she said Cassie is really nice and an over all
cool person. r still had this fear of talking to her I didn't understand it. r could probably go up to my
principal and recite every bad word I knew, but [ couldn't evensay "Hi!" to this girl. Well, one day,
and I thinksomebody planned this, r was after school in the photo room makingup work, when she
walked in I figured "what the heck?" and went over and talked to her. I suppose she somehow knew
that r liked her She turned out to be one of, if not, the coolest person I have ever spokenwith. I could

a paper she cant even rememberwriting. I didn't get any work done that day, btl! I didn't care. After -..Jl\
.irne, she became more open and we talked more After this, I didn't really knowwhere to go I
would greet her in the hall for the last time a few minutes before she enteredthe library on April
10th, 1999.

I have terrible regrets dealing with Cassie in particular. I have no ideaand wiJl probably never know
how long she was held in that library until either Eric or Dylan pulledthe triggerwithout even
thinking twice. One survivorfrom the library told me that when the gunmen got to her and held a gun
to her head, they asked her is she believed in god. She stood up quickly and screamed "YES I
BELIEVE IN JESUS'" and they killed her, She may have been one of the hostages destined to die by
the hand of one of the gunmen. I felt truly horrible when her name and picture flashed on my screen
on April 21st, 1999 I hoped beyond belief that I would have become closefriendswith her before
that day Now this is impossible. I cannot explain, I was uncontrollably drawn to her since she read
that essay One thingthat bothers me is the way that people think more highly of her because she was
a dedicated Christian. You see, various people who knew Cassie madereference of how she used to
be into witchcraftand "into the dark side of things" whateverthat means. Do youknow what this
means in reality? This means that if Cassie had not been religious, these same people would feel less
pain when she died. I am sorry if'you do not agree with me on this I thoughtthe world of Cassie,
religious or not. I never knewCassie as wen as I would have liked. I am not a memberof her church
group, I knownobody in her family, but I do know one thing that many have overlooked. I knowthat
Cassie neverjudged a person by what they were, she judged them according to who they were. The
girl who died for her faith will be remembered 50 by many, but I will remember Cassie as a person
that befriendedpeople for who they are, not what they are or what they belive in. I am a true example
Jf this. She didn't think any less of me when I told her I was not religious. If anyone who reads this
knew Cassie and thinks less ofme for what I have just said, she was different from you, and you will
never understand.

Isaiah was a senior who I neverknew at all. He seemed to be a cool guy He was black and an
athlete, so if he was in that library, there Is no doubt that the gunmen would targethim. He probably
would have had a long life to live. His dad kept his composure while talking about Isaiah on the TV
Hard to imagine.

Mark IS a boy that I have known since Kindergarten. He has a twin brothernamed Mike Mark was
born with a defect in his leg and arm. He couldn't run at all, but he could walk, and he could only use
one of his hands We was in that library and was shot 2 times in the head and 2 times in the neck. He
somehow survived, 1can only imagine that he win be even more disabled the rest of his life. This
sickens me He satin frontof me in choir the day he was shot, but by the timehigh school came
around, I was no longer friends with him, I remember how he had dreams of beinga racecar driver
when he grew up 1wonder if he still had this hope when he was in that library

There were countless other victims both injured and killed by Eric and Dylan 2 days ago I am the
sort of person who strives to be in control. Total control is my life goal. Watching the TV that day
seeing what the Gunmen had been doing, I felt helpless. It is the first time in myadult life that 1have
ever feit that there was nothing I could do My dad was specifically worried that I would have been In
school that day and probably tried something stupid to stop/kill The gunmen. I would have to agree
with him on this one r look back at the time Eric and Dylan approached me and my friends, and r
wish 1would have had someway of knowingthat they would do something like this. I probably
would have taken personal acuon to make sure it didn't happen.

Lookingback at thatday, where the sound of trumpets played Hells song, I thinkabouthow happy I
am that so manyof my friends and class mates still live to this day. r had a dream of me being in the
library, I thought to myself"My god, Im going to die without a chance!" then one of the gunmen
placed the gun at myforehead "This is my chance!"and I grabbed the gun like I was trained so many
years ago, and thenI awoke, Did i suceed in stopping him and suprising the othergunmen who was
not looking? Or did I perish? I keepthinking about how this couldhave been a possibility, but I am
truely glad it was not. r havenotsaid a word dealing with the political garbage that is being spewed
about by so manyheartless careerboosting individuals, I knowthe true answerto so manyquestions
that orbit this tragedy. Throughout history people report individuals who arecrazy and socially
unstable, Many murders come to mind. Eric Harris and DylanKlebold were two completely unstable
mental cases who werebound to act as they did from the start So go ahead, blamethe guns, the lack
of metal detectors, the parents, the video games, the other students, the lack ofreligion in schools, or
whateveryour fancy Whatever makesyou feel better. I implore you, take it from me. Laws are made
logically to protect people, but what happens when peoplewho are not logical existin our world?

My name is Zach Johnston. I am a student at Columbine High school in JeffersonCounty Colorado


It is on this site that I will try to explain from my personal pointof view what happened to my school
on April 20, 1999 Sony if the grammEr is below average, I really do not care, I spent about 5
minutes deciding what I wouldwrite here, then Ijust let it all out [will expressmy viewsas well as
feelings about this seemingly unavoidable tragedy The things I say are what I think or believe what
happened. Not actuallywhat happened ! will only placebits and pieces of what I know on this site

I woke up at 6' 10 a.m on April 20, 1999 [had a fairly bad cold and a soar throat. I didn't feel like
going to school but since my friend was picking me up I didn't wantto make her drive for nothing.
She arrived at my house and we proceeded to goto school at Columbine SeniorHigh. Since April 20
is 4'20, it was a day that manystudents were supposed to love and enjoyfor various reasons, Heh,
Various people told me "Happy ~ 20 Zach!" and "its 4 20 and r have an important date with you
know who." The day seemed pretty normal. I think [ faired well on my math test and we watched
CyranoDe Bergerac in World Studies After math [rushed to my lockerto meet a friend S<1 we could

go out tor Iuncn, 1lie ume was precisety 11'00 and we headed to my house because I cicnt reet so ~
well and wanted to take some Tylenol. At about 11:30 we headed back for school, We were headed
north on Pierce when suddenly we saw a police cruiser in the middle of the road beside a cargo van
and a little Mazda. I figured "oh well anotheraccident thatcould have been preventedand everyone
is over reacting," [had no idea how wrong I was. I told the persondrivingto head in the Woodmar
neighborhood so we could get to school using my "stealth" route. We were tben passed by a bunchof
kids in a WhiteCherokee who were honkingand waving their arms at us. I thought to myself "Crap
they wannaheat me up and we cant get away because her car is too slow"Then they honkedat
everyone else so I felt a lot better. [then told her to try a differentwayto school. We headed north on
Wadsworth then turned and went on Bowles where we eventually got to piece the stteet my school is
one. This is where I knew something was very wrong.

Piece was blocked off from this side of school as well. Aswe waited in a crowded intersection as
cops desperately tried to guide traffic, I saw a horde ofmy fellow studentsrunningtowards us. I
yelled at a Girl I knew and asked her what happened. She said "Some guys in black charged into
school and just shot everyone!'!" I saw hundreds of parentswho somehowfound out about all this.
They were runningevery which way trying to find their sons and daughters. It was a terribly
disturbing sight. I remember specifically one little girl from my choir class cryingabout how she saw
her mend get shot. My first thought was to get home as quickly as possibleto call my Mom since I
knew she would find out about all this before I would, so I did just that. We did a U turn and headed
back to my house. I live about! mile from the school and counted 35 police cars passing us as we
drove. Ambulances and police cars barging over medians motorcycle cops weavingthroughopposite
traffic almost killingthemselves Its actually quite amazing that police units can do such wide
fishtails and keep control. By the time I got home and called my mom to tell her I was okay, the
thought of what was happening hadn't quite sinked in yet.

My friendcalled her mom and aunt and stuff When she got off the phone, she told me her brother
and cousin were still in the school somewhere. Her brotherlater called and said he got out but her
cousin was still inside.

I ran into the family room and turned on the TV. Everystationwas coveringthe situation at my
school. Several stations had Ariel shots that amazedme. Of course the media blurted out a bunch of
crap about the situation that they knew nothingof, and basically madestuff up as they went along. I
never knew how much the media is full of crap about thingsuntil theytalk about stuff I know about
personally

I live on top of a huge hill overlooking the entire Denver Metro Area and could see the school in the
distance I counted 5 helicopters and 2 planes circling the premises. I could also see Clement park
where tons of parents desperately searched to find their children The southwest side is the part of the
school 1could view The Library and Cafeteria are both on this side. Apparently this is where all the
acnon was taking place The entire southwest side of the school is a hugeglass window Several
windows were shattered. This is basicallyall I could see from here.

The TV said that there were still 900 some odd students left in the school with the gunmen. This is
about half the population of the student body. While [ watched and wondered for myselfwhat was
happening, I knew in my heart who was responsible for this massacre> About a month ago my friends

and I went out to lunch. After lunch we had the same WorldHistory class so we would talk together.
We would often pass these 2 kids who WOre trench coats. Everyone referred to them as the "Trench

Coot Mana". My mend Cale reterred to them as the "Rammotem Boyz". Whatever you wanted to (J
call them, youcould tell they were different Well, one day, Clae snarled a remark about Rammstein
under his breath as we passed these 2 guys" The short one who was named Eric Harris confrontedmy
mend about it. He said "Everyday you pass me and make fun ofme sayingRammstien sucks" Why
do you do this crap asshole? What did I do to you?" My mend replied "Oh man your so cool, you're
my idol!"Then Eric's friendDylan approachedus seeming to back up his mend" I really didn't want
to get involved in a fight even though I knew these guyswouldn't stand a chance. I was afraid of
things they might do afterwards. Eric was a short clean cut lookingkid and Dylan was a verytall
skinny guywith messed up hair. He always wore the trench coat, a hat and dark sunglasses, The bell
rang and they left and we went into class, That was the end of the confrontation,

When I got my facts straight and figured out that 2 gunmenenteredthe school and killed several
people I knew,I figured the Trench Coat Mafia was responsible. Many helplesscrying people said
they recognized them as this group, I was shocked to understand that my hunch was correct. They
showedthe picturesof Eric Harris and Dylan on TV. Once I saw their pictures, I knew they had no
demandsor intent to leave Columbine Highschool alive,

This is the way I think it happened, I have heard several stories from the media, mends, and others,
but put this one together myself..

Eric and Dylan didn't go to school on Tuesday April 20, 1999 They did attend bowlingclass early m
the morningthough. Instead they entered the student parking lot at 11,00 Eric in his black prelude,
and Dylan in his black BlvlW 325 that the media is tryingto say makes him a rich. privileged kid It's
a crappy early 80s one and if you know what 1mean about early Beemers, they do suck. They must
have taken a few minutes to booby trap their cars and a few other cars as well, Once they were fully
suitedup they open fire on kids heading out in tbe parkinglot that were goingto lunch. Some sources
say they had body armor strappedto themselves, They threw bombsoutside and one even blew up his
car, After shootingoutside they charged into the Cafeteria where they must have sprayedbullets
everywhere After shooting in the Cafeteria, they ran up the stairs, shot people in the Ob-so-farniliar
halls of Columbine High School, then entered the Library, Of course, they threw bombs allover the
place inside as well Nobody knowsas of yet how long they were in the Library Some kids go there
during their lunch hour to study or get work done, My guess is about 30 kids were in the libraryas
usual that day They charged into the Library, shot some people then stopped, I heard stories of kids
who escaped the library, They said that the 2 gunmentold all the jocks to stand up because "they are
cead!" the gunmen also claim to hate minoritiesas well, [ think: that is bullshit, I Think: they wanted
to kill everyone they could. [heard a story from one girl who said that one of them pulled out a knife
and said "I have always wanted to kill someone with a knife" Then he put it away for some reason. I
have a feeling it was Eric who said this, 1think they shot people hiding under tables execution style.
People say they would laugh after they killed someone. I guesswhen they figured they had enough
"fun", they tooktheir own lives, I don't know whetherthey were in the library for 5 minutes or 5
hours Afterthey shot themselves, a few survivors in the library tan OUI.

1guess as the gunmen were entering the school, peoplecould hear the gunshots and explosions Take
my word for It, my school is huge, so autonties didn't know where to go, 1guess Mr Sanders was
one of several teachers who was trying to guide studentsout ofthe school or at least to a secure area
within, He was unfortunately shot, but managed to staggerto a nearby Science room where one of
my friends cousin was hiding. He walked in bloody and dying wherehe passed out, fell down and
broke hisJaw My friend's cousin tried to keep his air passage open for some amount of time, They
say he sat up but fell down again a few times A few hours passed, and the SWAT team barged Into

unable to be kept conscious. It was shortly after this time that I believe Mr. Sanders, my keyboarding
teacher, died. He was also a girls Basketball coach and a businessteacher.

Across the hall from the science room, there was the Choir room, where 60 students stayedfor 3
hours. Some moved ceiling tiles to get fresh air in. A SWATteam eventually got them out as well.

A guy namedNick, was somewherein the school. He got into the ceiling and crawled to try to get
out. The ceiling gave in and he feJl20 ft. He was luckilytoward the front of the school, fur opposite
from where Eric and Dylan were, so he was taken to safety.

r rememberseeing one student at a window Obviously shot several times. It appeared that he was
trying to jump out the 2nd story library windowand end his pain. It was the most disturbing and
moving sight I have ever witnessedin my life. What the incredibly ignorant news crew cameramen
weren't seeing was a fire truckjust below the windowthat the boy was aiming for. SWAT members
grabbedhim and carried him off to safety. As he was taken from the window, his blood drenched
sock touchedthe wall and smeared all over. I felt immensesadnessafter seeing this particularscene.
The first version I saw was this kid trying to jump and kill himself, Tlater saw a better angle that
showedthe boy being pulled from the window. I guess the retard news crew cut off the scene right
before the hands of the SWAT members came into view. I learned later that His name is Patrick, a
kid I have known since 2nd grade. He once made fun of my for buyingRebok Pumps in 3rd grade
becausethey were 5 sizes too big.)

Duringthe entire siege, SWATteams entered the school ar various places and rushed to get my
classmatesout. For all they knew, they were rushinginto the school with guns drawn and the killers
could be anywhere. But, 1knew that these 2 gunmen weren't silly kids influencedby games, and tv.
They were trained and had plannedout this entire day Brooks,a student I had a choir class with
explained how he knew people involved in this "TrenchCoat Mafia". At the time he spoke to me
about them, it had nothingto do with anything. It was j ust a randomconversation that took place
several months ago. He told news crews that every time somebodymessed with them or teased them,
they would go home and plan this thing out. It wasn't somethingthey did after a good day at school
according to Brooks, who had no part in it.

Abouta year ago, I worked at a movie theatre with one of the Trench Coat Mafia kids. Twont list his
name since I don't think he had anythingto do with this. He would constantly complain about rich
jocks and other stuff that is commcn to hear. I figured to myself 'just an angry kid ventingsome
anger" Then one night he came into work and told me he had been chased In his car by so and so.
Welt, turns out 50 and so were athletes from my school who don't seem to have anythingbetter do to
than torment this dude.

I can see why the fellow I worked with hated Columbine High School. I Can safely say that I don't
think he took part in the Terror that was created a few days ago. I don't think he was a corrupt kid
either I think that Eric and Dylan were the only ones involved that I knew about. Although now
police are saying they found 30 explosivedevices in backpacks, WIder bodies, and inside lockers,so
they probably were not in it alone. These devices had been planted before the gunmen entered the
school.

If otber members of this "Trench Coat Mafia" were treated like my past co-worker, then this is their
only "motive" for doing what they did a few days ago. They were 2 outcast kids that were constantly
made fun of, and they finally snapped. What they were thinkingbefore they performed this horror

all pain inside their heads that they couldn't deal with. Some blame parents, other students, the NRA, J
or whatever. Not They weren't man enough to deal with their misfortunes, so they took the easyway
out.

During the disaster at my school The namesof the dead where withheld for various reasons. Having
an idea who was in that librarywas the worst feeling I have ever had to deal with. A mend told me
that Patrick had been shot. He was alive and taken to the hospital. Another person told me that
Rachel Scott was dead. I rememberRachel being a verywarm, caring, a funny person. She was an
actor, a singer, and had a long future ahead ofher. It was all broughtto a halt. I rememberwhen we
were sophmores when we had to disect these babypig teams's. She was really scared and shaking
when they put the pig down in the disection tray, So I tied 2 stringsto the pigs arms and made it
dance around and sing songs. She thought it was reallyfunny and soon started cutting this poor dead
pig apart in all kinds of strange ways. She was also a verytalented singer. She was an alto in my
choir class when we were sophmores, I heardthat the gunmendidnt actually go throughtbe front of
the cafateria, but instead walkedaround and up the stairs wherethe media Showed footageofall the
kinds runningout ofthe school. I believethat the gunmen entered the upper doors whereRacheland
a hoy name Richard were. Richard was quickly gunned down, but didn't die. Richard saysthat he
heard the gunmenask Rachel if she believedin god, she said "yes' and they soon ended her life.
Rachel was a victim of a pair of outcasts pouring out their poison on innocent lives [now know that
if Rachelcan perish. anyonecan perish and there is nothing' we can do about it.

I foundtremendoustorment when I remembered that a girl named Cassie was in the library at this
time for sure. [ was absolutely sure she was in tbe librarywhen the gunmen entered...

When I was a sophomore, I noticed a new girl in class. Apparently her name was Cassie and she was
very pretty and quite. At the time I didn't take much notice to her since my attention was usually
drawn to Ms Haggard who always caught me mouthing off or doing somethingI shouldn't have been
doing. Then we were given an assignment where you had to pick a partner and write about something
I cannot remember. I was absent when we chose partners, so I wrote about how I loved
snowboarding, Each group of 2 had to stand up and read their paper. [ read mine and as usualwas
yelled at by Ms. Haggard for screwingaround and not writingabout the correct topic Then Cassie
stood up and read her paper alone becauseshe didn't have a partner. It was about how she was new
in ColumbineHigh School and she tried to explain bow unfair it was to have to do a partner
assignment when you don't know anybody, She read her paper with great confidence and didn't care
what anyone thought. After she sat down,some students grumbledand whisperednegative
comments. Two of my friends even took part in this sickeningdisplay, but not 1. There was
somethingabout this girl that wrotethis paper that caused me to stay quite, I wanted to approach her
and talk to her everyday of that semester after she read that paper, but I never did. I have never had a
problem going up and talking to someone in my entire life until she came along. Weeks past, then
months, then the semester ended,

Years past, and I still see Cassie in the hall periodically, Then a few months ago A girl i knew who is
friends with Cassie told me I should talk to her becauseshe said Cassie is really nice and an over all
cool person. I still had this fear oftalking to her I didn't understand it. I could probably go up to my
principal and recite every bad word I knew, but I couldn't even say "Hi!" to this girl. Well, one day,
and I think somebody planned this, I was after school in the photo room making up work, when she
walked in. I figured "what the heck?" and went over and talked to her. I suppose she somehowknew
that I liked her. She turned out to be one of, if not, the coolest person I have ever spoken with, I could

a paper she cant even remember writing. I didn't get any work done that day, but I didn't care. After v~
time, she became more open and we talked more. Afterthis, I didn't reallyknow where to go. I
would greet her in the ball for the last time a few minutesbefore she entered the libraryon April
20th, 1999.

I have terrible regrets dealing withCassie in particular. I have no idea and will probablyneverknow
how long she was held in that library until either Eric or Dylanpulledthe triggerwithout even
thinking twice. One survivor from the library told me thatwhen the gunmen got to her and held a gun
to her head, they asked her is she believed in god. She stood up quickly and screamed "YES I
BELIEVE IN JESUS!"and they killed her. She may have been one ofthe hostages destinedto die by
the hand of one of the gunmen. I felt truly horrible when her name and picture flashedon my screen
on April 21st, 1999. I hoped beyond belief that I wouldhave becomeclose friends with her before
that day. Now this is impossible. I cannotexplain, I was uncontrollably drawn to her since she read
that essay. One thing that bothers me is the way that people think more highly of her because she was
a dedicated Christian. You see, various peoplewho knewCassie made referenceofhow she used to
be into witchcraft and "into the dark side ofthings" whatever that means. Do you know what this
means in reality? This means that if Cassiehad not been religious, these same people would feel less
pain when she died. r am sorry if you do not agree 'With me on this. I thoughtthe world of Cassie,
religious or not. 1 never knewCassie as wellas 1would haveliked. 1 am not a memberof her church
group, I know nobody in her family, but I do knowone thing that many have overlooked. I know that
Cassie never judged a person by what they were, shejudged them according to who they were. The
girl who died for her faith will be remembered so by many, but 1 will rememberCassie as a person
that befriendedpeople for who they are, nOI what theyare or what they belive in. I am a true example
of this She didn't think any lessofme when I told her I was not religious. If anyone who readsthis
knew Cassie and thinks less of me for what I havejust said, she was different from you, and you will
never understand.

Isaiah was a senior who I neverknew at all. He seemed to be a cool guy. He was black and an
athlete, so if he was in that library, there Is no doubt that the gunmen wouldtarget him. He probably
would have had a long lite to live. His dad kept his composure whiletalking about Isaiah on the TV
Hard to imagine.

Mark is a boy that I have known since Kindergarten. He has a rwinbrother namedMike. Mark was
born with a defect in his leg and arm. He couldn't run at all, but he could walk, and he couldonly use
one of his hands. We was in that libraryand was shot 2 times in the head and 2 times in the neck. He
somehowsurvived. I can only imagine that he wilt be even moredisabled the rest of'his life. This
sickens me. He sat In front of me in choir the day he was shot, but by the time high school came
around, I was no longer friends with him. I rememberhow he had dreams of being a racecardriver
when he grew up. I wonder if he still had this hope when he was in that library

There were countlessother victims both injured and killedby Eric and Dylan2 days ago. I am the
sort of person who stnves to be in control. Total control is my life goal. Watching the TV that day
seeing what the Gunmen had been doing, I felt helpless. It is the first time in my adult life that I have
ever felt that there was nothingI could do. My dad wasspecifically worried that I would have been in
school that day and probablytried something stupid to stop/kill The gunmen. I would have to agree
with him on this one. 1look backat the time Eric and Dylanapproached me and my friends, and I
wish I would have had someway of knowing that they woulddo something like this. I probably
would have taken personal action to make sure it didn't happen.

constantly. People say "the library and hadthe gun pointed closeto me" But one thingsticks in my
$
mind more than anything, As we weredriving out of the parking lot at school to go to lunch, I saw
Dylanand his old 3251. He wasenteringthe school like nothing was goingto happen. Then I made
eye contact with him for a split second,and he lookedat me with no emotion. 1truly had no idea he
was soon going to perform the most horribleschool massacre in history.

Looking back at that day, where the sound of trumpets playedHells song, I think about how happy I
am that so many of my friends and class males still live to this day, I had a dream of me being in the
library. I thoughtto myself "My god, Im going to die without a chance!" then one of the gunmen
placedthe gun at my forehead "This is my chance!" and I grabbed the gun like I was trainedso many
years ago, and then I awoke, Did i suceed in stoppinghim and suprisingthe other gunmenwho was
not looking" Or did I perish? I keep thinking about how this could have been a possibility, but I am
truely glad it was not. I have not said a word dealing with the political garbage that is being spewed
about by so many heartless career boosting individuals. I know the true answer to so many questions
that orbit this tragedy. Throughouthistorypeople report individualswho are crazy and socially
unstable. Many murders come to mind. Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were two completely unstable
mental cases who were bound to act as they did from the start. So go ahead, blame the guns, the lack
of metal detectors, the parents, the video games, the other students, the lack of religion in schools,or
whateveryour fancy. Whatever makesyou feel better. I implore you, take it from me. Laws are made
logicallyto protect people, but what happens when people who are nor logical exist in our world?

You cannot run from it.

Enforcement Task Force

Supplementary Repon

Ref: Interview with Columbine Sophmorestudent t'fike Kenny DOB 07-27-83 by phone
at [303J 973-4303 .

On 05·01·99 a14:30 P.M. Denver PoliceDetective Terry Demmel, assigned with the Columbine Law
Enforecement Task Force, interviewed Columbine Sophmore student M"Jke Kenny DOB 07·27·83 by
phone. Mike reported thathe and friends Arthur Curtis. Brian Stepp and Jason Brehm were on the
soccerfieldplayingsoccerwhen theysaw fire crackers goingoffby the upper doers next to the Library.
Theyobserved a partyin a blacktrench coat with black pants;Mike stated that he was approximately
100 yards away. Mike reported that the guy had a TEe 9 in his hand, a person wearing a white T-shirt
and blue jeans was about 10 feet behind the guy in the trench coatand theyboth appeared to be together.

Mikestated that he wasn't sure if the guy in the whiteshirt was shooting anything or not. The partyin
the trench coat and the white shirt then turned their attention towards the boys on the soccer field and the
person in the trench coatbeganshooting at them and they couldherethe bullets whizzing past. The
boys took off running and Mike reportedthat he looked back approximately 10 seconds later to see an
explosion on the roof with smoke comingfrom the site.

When Det. Demmel askedMike if he thought it was possible that the parties in the trench coatand white
shirt could have thrown something up onto the roof he answered that " Yes " he did think from where
the twO were snmding that they could easily toss something onto the roofand that he did notsee

INVESTIGATION:

On August 12, 1999between the hours of 1030and 1040, I had an opportunity to speak with Melanie King in
reference to the Columbine incidentthat occurredon April 20, 1999. Melanie told me that she had left schoolprior to
the incident occurring. Melanie stated after she was released from her fourth hour Foods class which was taught that
day by a substitute teacher, Mr. Sneddon, she walked downthe main hallway to the west exit, walked down the stairs
just outside the cafeteria. and proceeded out into the semorparking lot. Melanie told me that she believed it was
between 11:15 and II :20 a.rn. when she reached her vehicle, which was parked in the senior lot, space #4. Melanie
stated she proceeded to drive from the senior parking lot and as she was passing the junior parking lot, she recalled
seeingDylan Klebold dressed in his black trench coat and he was walking from the parking lot in the directionof the
high school. Melanie went home for lunch and it wasn't until she tried to return to the school, that she found out about
the shooting incident.

Melanie was asked if she was positive on identifying Dylan Kleboldas the individual she saw walking in the Junior
parking lot. Melanie stated there was no doubt in her mind that was Dylan, she knew Dylan from school. Melanie
told me that she only knew him by first name, but again, there was no doubt that was Dylan Klebold. Melanie was
asked if Dylan was WIth anyoneor if he was carrying anything whenshe saw him in the parking lot Melanie stated
she did not see anybodywith him and she only looked at him brieflyand he didn't appear to be carrying anything. At
this point, Melanie was asked if she ever heard any gunfire or saw anyone firing any weapons while she was at
Columbine High School, and she stated she did not.

ASSSOCIATED CASE REPORT NUMBERS:


Jefferson County Sheriffs O.R., 99-7625
FBI control number: 174A-DIV-57419
SUBJECT: KLAPPER, Kari Ann
DOB: 11/09/81
8946 West Prentice' AVe.
Littleton, co. 80123
(303) 973-924:1.
PARENTS:
MOTHER: Pat Klapper
FATHER: Gary Klapper
OBSERVATION / INVESTIGATION:
On April 29th I was interviewing Columbine student Lacey Hohn. Durin~
the interview Lacey said that a student Kari Klapp~r might have walked past
the shooters just prior to the beginning of the shooting. I identified
Kari from the student roster, and made an appointment to interview on May
6th at 0800 hours.
On May 6th at 0745 hours I arrived at 8946 West Prentice Avenue and
conducted an inter,iew with Kari. Kari related that she is a junior at
Columbine High School, and was at school on April 20th. She continued to
say that she had walked up the stairs that lead from the parking area to
the west main level entry along the outside of the school. Kari related
that when she reached the top of the stairs, at about 11:1SAM, she notice
Dylan (KleboldJ standing near the entry to the building. She said that
Rachel Scott and Richard Castaldo were also sitting on the side walk near
the enterance having lunch. Kari said that they always have lunch there.
She related that she spoke briefly to Rachel and Richard, and as she
started to walk down the side walk to the "pit" she noticed that Dylan had
left and a male subject she believed to be Eric Harris was standing there.
She advised that she was not entirely sure the subject was Harris. She
advised that he was wearing a white t-shirt, black pants with black
suspenders and he was holding a gun at his side with both hands. Kari
said that she was not really sure what kind of gun it was. Kari related
that it did not register about the gun for a second. Kari stated that she
had walked about 10 feet when she heard a series of very rapid shots behind
her and an explosion. She said she briefly turned and looked and saw
Harris shooting down the stairs in the direction of the parking lot. Kari

I.All::EWOOIl CO PP .... 2 of 2 ... 9903S8S6
Supplement 05/06/99 1173 STEFFES, TIMOTHY
further advised that after hearing the shots and explosion and looking
toward the source of the sound she observed a large cloud of grayish
colored smoke coming from the area of the parking lot. Kari said that she
started running and ended up at the picnic area to the north-west of the
school. She waited there for a brief period of time when someone said
"they're coming this way". At this time they jumped the fence into
Clements Park and went to the parking lot where she got a ride with a
friend, Evan Onis. Kari said that after leaving the lot the took a girl
home (she did nat know this persons name) and then went to Wills (a friend
of Evan) house. There she called her parents.
Kari stated that just before the shots the only people at the top of
the stairs was Harris, Rachel and Richard.
Kari stated that she was not in the cafeteria at all on the morning
of April 20th. She reported that neither Harris or Klebold had a duffel
type bag when she encountered them just before the shooting. She also
advised that neither said anything to her just before the shooting. Kari
advised that she has spoken to Klebold before in school and he had jump
started her car once for her. She advised that Dylan seemed very normal
during her contact with him. She advised that she did not know Harris,
She also said that she did not socialize with either or anyone in the
group. Kari stated that her friend, KRISTA HANLEY, was closely associated
with the Trench Coat Mafia. Kari said that she had spoken to Krista often
before April 20th and that Krista had said nothing to her about anything
happening on that day. Kari said·~hat after the shooting she spoke to
Krista and Krista seemed very shocked that Harris and Klabold had done
this. Kari advised that she had heard no rumors about trouble on April
20th before that day.
Kari could provide no further information and my interview concluded
at: 0820 hours.

On 05-11-999 I called the pager of the message on the


pager was quite interesting. The message is that of machine gun fire, cars
squealing their tires and people screaming. I took the time to meet Jason
Lallement in person due to the very nature on the message on his pager.

I met with Jason Lallemenc at his residence,7.5.2.S.wiii.•oititiaiwiailiPili. • • •1.


ttleton, co. Jason explained his relation to.
He played various computer games with Klebold from
time to time. The games they played were similar to "Doom". They used
computer modems to play these games and this is why his number wa sin his
possession.
Josh added he had a class with Klebold and last talked to him the
Friday prior to the incident. The class was creative writing. He knew
Harris also, but didn't talk much to him. Harris was in the same creative
writing class, he sat behind him often. Josh stated he thought Klebald was
a nice guy.
I then talked to him about the message on his pager. He felt there
was nothing wrong, it is a beginning of a music album. He has had it on
their for a long time and never gave it any thought. Josh's thought to it
was he sees nothing wrong with it and he has not done anything illegal. I
continued to approach the message as this is of interest to us being the
investigation involves shooting of persons.
I spoke to Josh briefly about his activity after high SChool. He
indicated he has no plans at this point. He will be graduating shortly.
