Columbine, 10 years later
GOLDEN, Colo. — The first officers on the scene had never trained for what they found at Columbine High School: No hostages. No demands. Just killing. In the hours that followed, the nation watched in horror as the standard police procedure for dealing with shooting rampages in the U.S. proved tragically, heartbreakingly flawed on April 20, 1999. Ten years later, Columbine has transformed the way police in the U.S. deal with shooting rampages.
