From Comprehending Columbine:
Another former student told a much darker, and in retrospect, scary, story about harassment and intimidation of her brother, a special-education student with learning disabilities:
EK: Harris and Klebold … would follow my brother around and threaten they were going to kill him. It got to the point where my brother didn’t want to go to school at all, because he was very intimidated by them. And my parents got the administration involved, and said, “Hey, these two kids are threatening my son that they’re going to kill him, and my son doesn’t want to go to school or anything like that.” Basically all the administration did was call Eric and Klebold into the ofﬁce, have a talk with them, but nothing happened. Like they stopped threatening my brother, but nothing, you know, they didn’t like punish them or anything like that.
RL: But they did get them to stop threatening your brother?
RL: And that Harris and Klebold spent the better part of a semester harassing and intimidating your brother?
EK: I’d say it was for a month or two. And my brother said that they’d be outside of a good majority of his classes; they’d follow him to the next one. He said it seemed like they were always there, and that he didn’t want to go to school because he was outright scared of them, and he was in tears when he told my mom that he didn’t want to go to school because of these kids (Recorded May 12, 2003).
Why does anyone do anything?
