PostSubject: The Browns   Sun Jan 06, 2019 9:34 pm

What are your thoughts and opinions on the Browns? Especially Judy and Brooks? Also, do you think it's fair that the Browns got to see the basement tapes because they kept harassing Jeffco to see them? despite not having one of their children injured or killed? I know that Eric had written on his website, about how he wanted to kill Brooks but was that really enough for them to see the tapes?

I've seen some posts throughout the forum about her and apparently some people don't like her generally. To add on, it's known that Brooks is/was known as a liar and now I'm just curious as to what the general consensus is on them

I think everyone here is going to agree with you that there was no reason for the Browns to ever see the Basement Tapes. They involved themselves in everything that went on after the shooting because of Eric's website. General consensus here is they seem nosy.

Actually... I disagree. If the police had listened to the Brown's beginning in 1997, maybe Columbine would have never happened. The Brown's are a HUGE reason why so much of the information on this case has been released publically and I think a BIG reason for why any of the parents got to see the Basement Tapes.
Brooks may not have been injured but Eric caused a lot of stress on that family for some time before the shooting. If the police had taken anything they'd said seriously, maybe no one would have died.

Judy's a busybody and Brook's has issues, too, but the Browns are a big part of the Columbine case and they had a right to see those tapes.

I don’t think they have a right to see the tapes. Although I do agree with Brooks, I think one of their friends should’ve been allowed to watch them. They would’ve been able to give a little more insight

I think demanding to see the tapes and demanding Sue reaches out to the victims families and not even realizing that she was not allowed is pretty intrusive

I disagree about the rights to see the tapes, but they are a part of the case. Close friends had more rights to watch the tapes than Judy and Randy. The fact Eric caused them stress gave them no actual right to see the tapes. It's not as if Eric directly mentioned them by name and mentioned wanting to attack them on the tapes. If he had, that's a whole different thing.

If the police had listened, then Columbine might not have happened, you're right. That's Jeffco's fault. The Browns did their best to warn the police that Eric was a potentially dangerous person. I'm sure they feel guilty that they didn't keep pestering the police about Eric.

I still think that they're rather nosy though, or at least they stick their nose in things they don't belong in such as the Sue thing mentioned above. Brooks wasn't even at the school during the shooting. I know we've discussed before on the forum if we believe Brook's story or not, but I'm not even gonna go into that right now. Towards the end, Brooks wasn't even that close with Dylan anymore. That doesn't discredit him or anything, I don't mean it like that.  I'd like to here more from other friends of both Dylan and Eric.

Don't get me wrong, I am grateful they were able to get a lot of information released to the public. We might not be here now if it weren't for them.

They're dicks.

They were also right to be suspicious of Eric and were some of the few people willing to talk at length about what a shitshow JeffCo was and acted.

I suppose you gotta take the good with the bad.

Right, they're good and bad. I don't hate them or anything. I just think they're nosy. But in the end, it's because of their nosiness that we have so much info.

Judy is a busybody who is extremely nosy and rude while "pretending to help". I don't care for her or the way she treated Dylan's family. I think Randy means well but he is also too involved. Brooks is a liar and kinda a perv.

I agree that they were very involved. On the other hand I think all 3 need to take a step back. Randy turned his son's room into an "evidence room" and spent a ridiculous amount of time online arguing with columbiners (look at Cullen's book reviews on amazon for example) and for someone that quote " does not want to be affiliated with Columbine anymore" Brooks sure loves to bring attention back to it....

I don't like the 3 of them very much but to me it is more their collective personalities than anything else.
