One of the group was Anthony A. Pyne, a 230-pound football player with a tribal band tattoo on his left arm. (Pyne's mother said her son would not comment, on the advice of his attorney.) After Christmas, Pyne began to tease Aundrea Harwick in English class about her breasts. Harwick went to the teacher, Tom Tonelli, who was also a Columbine football and wrestling coach. He suggested she move to a different seat.

A similar event happened at a Columbine wrestling match at Arvada High School. Pyne, "in front of everyone," said Harwick, broadcast to all within earshot: " 'Her breasts are getting bigger.' They're laughing -- the jocks were." She told Coach Place; he told her to sit on the other side of the gym.

She then went to a woman at a concession stand, who called the Arvada police. The officer issued Pyne a ticket. Because he was a juvenile, court records are not available, but Harwick said he pleaded guilty and paid a $50 fine.

The next day at school, administrator Rich Long, trying to persuade the girl to drop the charges, told Harwick and her mother that "by her going and getting the police, she's ruining his possibilities of playing on the football team," Elissa Harwick recalled. Pyne played football anyway.

I think what bothers me about this is not even what the guy did which was not right but I've heard far worse but that the girl was obviously upset and all that seemed to matter to Rich Long was that if she didn't drop this, the guy might not be able to play football.
Seemingly no concern for how she felt at all.

Why is none of this surprising to me at all? Mad

I've also read that Anthony L. Pyne was friends with Rocky Hoffschneider.

Somewhat off topic, but I'm a Colorado resident and even though I'm a half-dozen hour drive from columbine, but there is a extreme amount of jock types around here. Kids these days are more liberal but their behaviour is the same. Brutish, foul, evil, rotten to the core, etc. I dont condone what E&D did but god fucking damn, the schools around here really are that bad. Unless, you're a jock or prep type in which its survivable.
