Columbine Massacre Criminology March 12, 2009 On April 20, 1999 in Littleton, Colorado two students Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris committed what is thought to be one of the worse school massacres to ever happen. To this day law enforcement officials as well as others continue looking for just cause as to why these boys would commit such acts, and in the end take their own lives.

Editorial Speech In the world these days, many schools and other places are having an issue about gunfire with mental kids. Due to this, many people have died and got injured, causing fear and tragedy for many families. Some people even move to other countries to avoid living under fear constantly just because of gun shootings.

Also the stigma of being left outside social cliques and the availability of firearms caused these events to culminate. Many music groups were also blamed in the aftermath; Marilyn Manson, the German group KMFDM and the Detroit-based rap group Insane Clown Posse. In response to the concerns over the causes of Columbine and other school massacres, many schools instituted new anti-bully policies as well as so-called “zero tolerance” approaches to weapons and threatening behavior. Also after the shooting new security measures were put into place such as see-through backpacks, metal detectors and security guards.
