  1. When sports is given too much attention, made out to be more than a game, like a gold mine for money purposes and greed, or simply given more credit than it certainly deserves for the purpose it serves, there lies the problem. Students fight for academic prowess to make a real difference in this world as make believe sports games played and soon forgotten because who won or lost never really mattered to begin with. We can always use medical professionals and medical research to improve our health. Do we really need a sports athlete in this world? How about another scholarship for athletics? It is no shock how bullying and over inflated egos over sports became out of control, especially in the ignorant society of America. Sports athletes are admired like they just discovered a cure for cancer. Dream on, they are about as much use as well their next game. Their last ones are already forgotten about.

  2. My heart & prayers go out to the victims family. Yet not only 4 the victims but for the shooters family & i have pity 4 the shooters too. That may shock & offend some, i just believe that no human being can give that kinda hate unless hate is what they were given. I remember high school & i know how those young men felt & unlike me they didnt have faith& prayer to get them over. The hate they recieved, then carried, then distributed. So the narrative that no one was evil to them boyz & that there was no motive behind their hateful rage … Ill never believe

  3. This is a terrible tragedy. In reality this was a system failure. The school and policy failed all of these victims. Anti-bullying and gun laws were not in place. These kids did an atrocious act of murder… but it’s reported also they were tormented by this football team. There are reports of throwing cups of feces at the shooters and ketchup over the years… called them names. So much they were both in therapy. I’m not sympathizing, but it needs to be known that most of these shootings are system failures. Failure to identify threats, bullying, and plans. I hope we truly learn one day, so these shootings stop.

  4. I feel it was more than bullying they seem envy and jealous more than anything basic on some of their tapes.

  5. MSM LIED. IT HAS CAUSED COPY CAT SHOOTINGS BY MISLEADING OTHER KIDS WHO ARE ANGRY AT JOCKS.
    @t
    GOOGLE COLUMBINERS
    GOOGLE COLUMBINE INSPIRED SHOOTERS.
    THERE IS ONLY 1 TRUTH. THE SHOOTERS WERE VICTIMS OF PEDOPHILIA NOT BULLIED BY THEIR CLASSMATES AT COLUMBINE. GOT IT??

  6. Am I crazy or is the narrator of this piece Dawn Anna? (Mother of victim Lauren Townsend). Sure sounds like her. Does anyone know?

  7. If you want to help teach them to not bully kids that aren’t on that field. Making them feel superior just because they run up and down a field does not make them better.
