I think it is extremely difficult to be justiceful towards Patti Nielson.
I would not judge her, because she was probably in a complete panic and so, she could not have made an absolutely good decision.
I remember that in the middle of the conversation with the operator, she began to pray, and the operator reminded her that this was not the right time for praying. This says much about what a state of mind she was in.
To be really honest, I would not know what to do and how to do the best to protect others in such a situation.

That is right and a good reminder of something I forgot. She did start praying. She thought she was going to lose her life that day

Patti wasn't a hero. Simple as that. and I forgive her for that.

Who ever said she was a hero? (Forgive me, but I haven't had the time to read through this whole thread).

I wanted to apologise for coming on too strong and getting a little mad by the way you guys.

It's one of the more interesting things about Columbine, is that it elicits such strong emotions even so many years later. No reason to apologize for being passionate about something.

I would never consider Patti a hero, but I do feel that she is a sympathetic character. It's nearly impossible to tell how any of us would have reacted in a situation such as dire as that. As you suggest, and I agree, Dave Sanders is a hero and a totally different figure entirely. I always feel badly when I think about him and how the feet-dragging SWAT team and the police essentially allowed him to slowly die.
