So this story has been making the rounds lately. Some guy has got some book coming out about ‘atypical children’. One of the chapters deals with kids who commit crimes. For the book, the author interviewed Sue Klebold, the mother of Columbine scumbag Dylan Klebold.
The hype for the story has been that when she realized that her demon spawn was committing murder at Columbine she prayed that he would take the coward’s way out…
“I had a sudden vision of what he might be doing. And so while every other mother in Littleton was praying that her child was safe, I had to pray that mine would die before he hurt anyone else.”
“I thought that if this was really happening and he survived, he would go into the criminal justice system and be executed, and I really couldn’t bear to lose him twice. I gave the hardest prayer I ever made, that he would kill himself, because then at least I would know he wanted to die and wouldn’t be left with all the questions I’d have if he got caught by a police bullet. Maybe I was right, but I’ve spent so many hours regretting that prayer: I wished for my son to kill himself and he did.”
Nice. You should have prayed for your son to have killed himself long before April 20th, 1999.
I wonder if the author asked them if they felt any responsibility for the 13 deaths at Columbine. Even if he did I doubt the Klebolds would have felt any responsibility at all. Especially considering in the past Sue Klebold said: “I haven’t done anything for which I need forgiveness.” While the Klebolds may think they have no responsibility for what happened at Columbine they do. They’re not solely responsible obviously, but sometimes inaction is just as bad as the action itself.
Also, as par for the course, Sue Klebold even admits her own cluelessness again. When asked what she would say to her coward of a son today she replied…
“I would ask him to forgive me, for being his mother and never knowing what was going on inside his head, for not being able to help him, for not being the person he could confide in.”
To me, this just shows that she feels not only no remorse for what her scumbag son did to his victims but that she still feels like she bears no responsibility in any of this. If you, your husband, and the Harrises had done their jobs as parents the name Columbine would still be known worldwide as just a flower.
Thanks to Jade for the tip.
