So it turns out that Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold weren’t bullied, just psychotic. Now we can gather up all the blame that’s been spread out among the victims and society at large and deposit it firmly where it belongs: on the killers.
Will the well-funded anti-bullying industry, which has been profiting from Harris and Klebold’s murders for a decade now, edit their workbooks and return the money now?
I take two lessons from Columbine:
- When people believe that they have the right to take innocent lives at the end of a gun, other things they believe should not be relied upon.
- When the media gets a story horribly wrong, it will take years to correct it, if it is corrected at all.
