PostSubject: Why did Brooks leave?   Thu Apr 06, 2017 3:29 pm

So Eric just told him to get out and he did? Why? If he didn't suspect anything, then why did he leave? Or am I misunderstanding something?

I'm sure that he is not telling something ...

Brooks said he got an uneasy feeling over Eric's demeanor. however i always thought his story of going up to Eric and berating him about missing the test that day was a lie. that doesn't seem like something a teen would do or care about. not sure what was said during their interaction (if there was one...Brooks was known to make shit up) but im side eyeing his version of what was said.

correction: the uneasy feeling made him walk away from Eric not the school. Brooks may have been planning to skip and thats why he left but i still question the interaction.

In his first statement to police, Brooks Brown does not say why he left campus, only that he "left the school" (10662).

In his second statement he said he "walked down to Pierce Street" and then "[met Harris] at the vehicle" Eric had just parked (10670). That makes it sound like he walked down to Pierce then came back to confront Eric when he saw Eric pull in.

In No Easy Answers it's the same. Brooks says that he "was a little surprised to see Eric suddenly pull into the parking lot right in front of [him]" and he "walked right up to his car." At first, that does not tell you exactly where he was standing when he saw Eric pull in. Did Eric park right in front of him or drive by him while pulling in? However, he clarifies when he writes that after the conversation with Eric he "walked across the parking lot back down to Pierce Street, still holding the same cigarette" (5). So he went back to Pierce Street, returning to where he was when he saw Eric pull in.

The takeaway is that Brooks was already walking down to Pierce Street before Eric even pulled in. Where he was going, I don't know. To take a walk and smoking a cigarette? However, according to his testimony the encounter with Eric interrupted but did not alter his plans.

Whatever was leading him to walk down to Pierce Street, it was not Eric.

In my opinion Brooks Brown, Chris Morris, and Cory Friezen all definitely knew that Eric and Dylan were planning this. They didn't want to sell out their friends, but when it actually happened, the way it shook America and shattered so many of the people around them, they had to backtrack and pretend they didn't know because they were terrified of being considered complicit. Even so, they were ostracized by their peers for not warning authorities and stopping it.

No way they knew. The killers say on their goodbye message that if Dykeman and Morris live, they can have some belongings. Does not sound like anyone else had the full picture.

I think their good friends knew something was up and to be away from the school. I think E&D told them a good lie. It would have been easy for E&D to save a few good friends using some simple, but clever manipulation. No reason to think they didn't, I guess.

I truly believe like many others that Brook knew a little more of what was about to occur. Did brook know of the months and months of planning, I surely don't think so. There was much more said then "I like you Brooks, go home." What was really said, sadly we will never know, but I think it doesn't take a genius to know that there was much more to the conversation on that fateful April morning.

That is a huge conspiracy to commit murder that you are talking about here.

Do you have any evidence that these three people were involved?
