What are your thoughts on her and what do you think she knew?

Interesting question. I'm really not sure what I think Of Robyn and if she knew more than she let on. But I know Brooks never liked her. Does anybody remember why?

I think she was blinded by her crush on Dylan. Maybe she knew that they were planning something, but I sincerely doubt that she knew what. But I bet she figured it out when she was sitting in the parking lot eating her Dairy Queen.

I feel bad for the girl. Teenage girls will do just about anything for the boy they "luv". She couldn't have imagined what was coming.

I didn't realize that Brooks didn't like her.

Brooks explains why in No Easy Answers. I wish I could remember what he said.

I think she thought they were just guys interested in guns, I believe they might have given her some sort of subtle hint of what was going to happen but she didn't get it.
Just an example, even if they ever talked about 'killing their school mates' to her, I can't see anyone seeing it as something that they're actually planning, it could have been taken as a morbid joke, something an angry kid would say (like when you don't like someone and you say I hope he dies, it's just a 'saying' and you don't mean it for real, at least most of the people don't) I don't know though if in the US, when school shootings are common, there's a different reaction about this.
Also the crush on Dylan would have minimized all the 'bad sides' they could have shown.

I'd like to know how Robyn felt about Eric. Did she consider him a friend, or was he an unfortunate part of the Dylan package? And on the flip side, I'd like to know how both Dylan and Eric felt about her and treated her. Did Dylan like her at all even as a friend or was she merely a pawn? Were they nice to her? Flirty? Basically ignored her?

I wish she was in one of the videos so we could see how they all interacted.

I wish she was in one of the videos so we could see how they all interacted.

I read that when Dylan went to Arizona on March spring break with Nate's family, Robin had a party at her house and she invited Eric.

I think she kinda like the 'bad boy' thing about the two of them -- or the TCM version 2.0 in general. Robin gave the impression to many peers that she was pursuing Dylan. She wore similiar sunglasses as Dylan. She probably told her friends how she really dug Dylan but played it subtle with him as 'just friends'. I often ponder if Dylan didn't return anything with her because 1) he was leaving the planet soon and didn't want to bond with anyone - plus, he was already pining after his perfect dream girl (at least in his state of mind) and/or 2) Robin was not his type, though he liked her company. I also think he was turned off by the fact that she was ..as Dylan would put it, a "christianic" good girl.

I think she accepted Eric as part of Dylan's BFF package so she hung with both of them. Eric and Dylan appeared to like her as a friend and gave kudos to her in the basement tapes as being 'cool'. Dylan saw the opportunity with NBK nearing and the fact that she was of age to buy the guns. I don't think he or Eric felt it was personal that they "used" her. They used a lot of people because they needed to accomplish their task. To paraphrase Dylan: "like you use a horse to carry shit". Of course, that doesn't at all condone their actions but it was the quickest way to accomplish their goal before their deadline: graduation, senior year ending.

I read that Robyn called Eric to invite Dylan to her party. When Eric told her that Dylan was in Arizona, I think she felt obliged to ask Eric.

Everybody on this forum, and also on the old forum seem to asume that Robyn had a crush on Dylan. But she wrote a letter to her friend Chris Kirk(who was at sea, in the navy?) that she would have prefered to go to prom with him as a date. So Dylan wasn't her first choice.

I am not a big fan of Robyn Anderson..it's not like I know her personally, but reading about this ignorent girl, just gives me negative vibes. She was never punished, because of the loophole in the Brady Bill and someone as Mark Manes and Phil Duran had to really pay for just providing one gun.

Maybe I am a bit hush and like I said: I really don't know her, but it is just that feeling, that somebody annoys the hell out of you. Maybe some of you know what I mean.
I am sorry if my spelling sucks, I really don't feel like checking it right now.

In regards to a "crush", there are accounts from a few CHS students that claimed Robyn acted as though she had a thing for Dylan. I seem to recall Nate said this as well. So, not really an assumption. I'd like see the source on Robyn writing a letter to friend Chris Kirk. Where did you read this?

I agree that Robyn seems to have gotten off scott free. The verdict seems skewed and rather like reverse sexism. Her beef was that she didn't have a clue; she thought her pals were collecting guns for hunting. Yet, Manes and Duran also thought they were using guns for sport and definitely not purchasing to shoot up people. All of them could claim innocence in that regard, so...

I recall reading the 11K account of friend that was with Robyn in the car while the attack was going on and she describes that Robyn seemed to have been acting anxious to leave for lunch that day. Robyn offered to help pay for one of her friend's lunch when she normally wouldn't do that type of thing because it seemed she wanted to go out for lunch really bad. She may have been tipped off that something was about to happen on that particular day but only started putting the pieces together in the car that it was the very guys she helped out in a very big way.

You believe she got off too easily? Didn't she make some kind of deal though? If so, what was the deal? I don't really recall.

Brooks didn't like her simple because she didn't go to jail for buying the weapons for E/D and Manes did. I don't know why he was so upset because she didn't go to jail, honestly the only time she broke the law, was when Eric and Dylan started killing people.

The letter to Chris Kirk was mentioned in a Dutch book about Columbine and the shitty thing is, the author doesn't mention a source. When I have the time I will try to find it. The author is usually really precise in his research, so sometimes I am trusting him a little bit too much maybe.
Because you have a point with all the statements that are claiming her crush on Dylan. But I am still a little sceptical. Usually when a boy and a girl become close friends, there are always the rumors and whispers of other people, who are making it something that's not.

I agree with your point that Robyn's behaviour is suspicious, but she probably didn't know the whole story.

Oh, that book. "We are but we aren't Psycho" I've heard SO many good things about it. I still can't believe there is no english version yet. *sigh*
If you could include an excerpt from it regarding Chris Kirk that would be most appreciated!

Why do people continue to write books about it? I'm glad that there's an apparently accurate description of events. But it's been 14 years, you can only beat a dead horse for so long. Is it like that with all serial/mass murderers in America? I know here we don't really hear much about that kind of thing.

Deal or no deal she broke the law and should be punished accordingly...all she did was even more damage to responsible gun owners by blasting Gun Shows...which are legal unlike what she did by buying shotguns for two minors. E&D sawed them off probably the same night she bought them. Manes did not condone the sawed off shotguns and even says in the video "Say NO to sawed offs." But them he screw up and shot the very same gun, that doesn't make him more guilty.

Dylan will be going to prom. He doesn't really feel like it, because he doesn't like parties, has never danced and never has been to a schoolparty. But Robyn asked him-It's a favor to her.

He isn't her first choice either. She wrote to Chris Kirk, who is at sea:"I couldn't decide with who I should go, so at last I persuaded my good friend Dylan to go with me. He hates danceparties, jocks and has never had a date before, also never a girlfriend. So I am really atractive or I am real;ly great in changing someones mind. We always have lots of fun when we go out. He really is a great friend. Offcourse I would have rather went we you, if you would have been here, but I assumed you wouldn't be home. I really long to see you again, Chris!

End of quote of Tim Krabbé's We are, but we aren't psycho. I hope the translation isn't that awful.

He hates danceparties, jocks and has never had a date before, also never a girlfriend. So I am really atractive or I am real;ly great in changing someones mind. We always have lots of fun when we go out. He really is a great friend. Offcourse I would have rather went we you, if you would have been here, but I assumed you wouldn't be home. I really long to see you again, Chris!

End of quote of Tim Krabbé's We are, but we aren't psycho. I hope the translation isn't that awful.

Excellent...and good transalation too! I wonder where Krabbe got this letter from Robyn to Chris? Did Krabbe seek out and interview Robin and others connected with Columbine ?


I have heard a spin on what Robin boasted to her friends in an article I read (somewhere):

I convinced my friend Dylan, who hates dances, jocks and who has never had a date let alone a girlfriend to go with me! I am either cute or just really persuasive!

In the Basement Tapes transcripts, Dylan mentioned he didn't want to go to prom but figured that since he would be dying soon he'd do something cool (plus, the parents paid him the $200 to go - essentially bribing their son to go!) I wonder if NBK wasn't coming up, whether Dylan, via Robin's persistence, would've still agreed to go with Robyn as a favor to her.

I read also that Dylan and Robin held hands during prom. Unfortunately, I don't have the source for that but I read it somewhere. Not sure if it's true - however, I can see Dylan doing this to make Robyn happy. Same as he spent quality time talking to friends at prom telling them he wanted to keep in touch in the future.

The letter to Chris Kirk was mentioned in a Dutch book about Columbine and the shitty thing is, the author doesn't mention a source. When I have the time I will try to find it. The author is usually really precise in his research, so sometimes I am trusting him a little bit too much maybe.
Because you have a point with all the statements that are claiming her crush on Dylan. But I am still a little sceptical. Usually when a boy and a girl become close friends, there are always the rumors and whispers of other people, who are making it something that's not.

I agree with your point that Robyn's behaviour is suspicious, but she probably didn't know the whole story.


Oh, that book. "We are but we aren't Psycho" I've heard SO many good things about it. I still can't believe there is no english version yet. *sigh*

If you could include an excerpt from it regarding Chris Kirk that would be most appreciated!

I am wondering where Krabbé got his source from too. I know he did everything through internetresearch and reading the same books most of us did read. But I am too lazy right know to look for the source behind this. I only can research in the evening, since my own computer past away Crying or Very sad . I will look it up, when I have more time.(if I can find it) He doesn't mention the source for this particular section Sad

Robyn's account on going to the Prom with Dylan was originally in an article at Westword.com ("Back to school" by Alan Prendergast). Don't know if it's still available.
Dylan and Robyn holding hands at the Prom was in the "fatal friendship"-article.

The letters Robyn wrote to Chris can be found on evanlong.net. In the download section search for "tips A-L" on page 296 the Chris Kirk section starts. If you use other sources its JC-001-013271 and further.
I knew I read more than Krabbé mentioned in his book.

Happy reading to all of you.

The "tips A-L" also contain a nice bonus. The notes which Eric exchanged with Kristi Epling during german class. Kristi send those to Lindsay Balsam, they can be found on page 18 and further, the Lindsay section starts on page 10, or JC-001-012985 for other sources.

Enjoy

Thanks for the hint on the Kristi Epling notes! I had never seen those, only read Jeff Kass'
transcripts.

I think that people should really get off Robyn's back. She had no idea what would happen.She did something unwise to try to impress a guy she really liked . Girls do that everyday.This was a rare circumstance that happened to have bad consequences. I don't blame her for not spilling her guts to people and trying to protect herself as best she could. She had to go on living . Most people would do the same whether they admit it or not in such a situation.
And she was sued and harassed.I thought it was totally unnecessary how when at the trial she had with the victims families, their attorneys pointed at Robyn and said this is so and so, their son/daughter was killed at Columbine and went through the whole list. Like she likely doesn't feel bad enough.
Sure, its not fair that she got no jail time when Manes and Duran did but I think their sentences were excessive also. People stuck it to them because they wanted to take their anger out on someone living.
