It was one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history: the Columbine High School massacre. On April 20, 1999, two teenage students, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, carried out a shooting rampage at Columbine High School in Jefferson County, Colorado killing 12 students and a teacher, and wounding 24 others before committing suicide. Did they have a methodical plan? What warning signs were missed? As the eighth anniversary of this tragic day approaches, The Final Report investigates the full story with the help of former students, journalists, FBI special agents, the district attorney and the killers’ own diaries and home videos.National Geographic Channel

"The Final Report: Columbine" was the worst documentary ever done on Columbine. Although it appeared to be fairly well researched, the presentation had nothing new to offer, and got the generaltheory wrong. What an awful project for National Geographic to have been involved in.
I participated in the show, and I was so disappointed in the end result that I am almost at a loss of words.
I expected more.
A horrible documentary with very little to offer.

Isaiah Shoels is the only African-American in this shooting (his name is not African due to his ancestors took the name from landowners) and Kyle Velasquez is the only Native American or Hispanic (his father is Hispanic and his mother is part Native American) in the shooting.
