The murder in April 1999 of 13 people at a Colorado high school – by two heavily armed pupils – sent shockwaves across the US.

After their shooting spree, Eric Harris, 18, and Dylan Klebold, 17, killed themselves.

VAL:

poignant images… horrific story.
they should have cut out the idiot at the end saying “not all of the parents having been notified yet of the death if their children… but soon their worse fears will be realised.” what is that all about? to make us reflect on the terrific efficiency of the media?… and realise that some of the parents might have learnt that terrible news from the television?
