CLL #1061 (feat. Columbine Students) – 10/24/1999 – Sunday Night Show
Source – Lost Tape (2017) with JBJ Tape (2008) Patches
This is a new tape for an existing episode, first recovered in full back in 2008. Now with a huge audio upgrade. Perhaps the most important and sadly still relevant episode of 1999. Three Students from Columbine high school appear on the show. Alicia, Rich and Courtney are all making their only appearances on CLL. Adam keeps the show light and tells what is possibly the best version of the Take Out food order mixup story. The students walk the guys through the events of the shooting and prove to be terrific guests. This is truly a one of a kind episode.
From Wiki: The Columbine High School massacre was a school shooting that occurred on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School in Columbine, an unincorporated area of Jefferson County, Colorado, United States. In addition to the shootings, the complex and highly planned attack involved a fire bomb to divert firefighters, propane tanks converted to bombs placed in the cafeteria, 99 explosive devices, and car bombs. The perpetrators, senior students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, murdered 12 students and one teacher. They injured 21 additional people, and three more were injured while attempting to escape the school. After exchanging gunfire with responding police officers, the pair subsequently committed suicide.
Although their precise motives remain unclear, the personal journals of the perpetrators document that they wished their actions to rival the Oklahoma City bombing and other deadly incidents in the United States in the 1990s. The attack has been referred to by USA Today as a “suicidal attack [that was] planned as a grand—if badly implemented—terrorist bombing.”
The massacre sparked debate over gun control laws, high school cliques, subcultures, and bullying. It resulted in an increased emphasis on school security with zero tolerance policies, and a moral panic over goth culture, gun culture, social outcasts (though the perpetrators were not outcasts), the use of pharmaceutical anti-depressants by teenagers, teenage Internet use, and violence in video games.
