As I go through the police statements, I will try to find comments made regarding how Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were perceived or treated by students at Columbine
pg. 556 said he used to see Dylan Klebold get teased for the way he dressed.
pg. 736 said everybody made fun of Dylan in gym class. They even called him “Stretch” because he was so tall. Stated Dylan was uncoordinated and wasn’t very good at sports.
pg. 770 knew that the jocks had been giving Dylan Klebold trouble.

Harris and Klebold were teased in the bowling class because they bowled “weird”.
pg. 904 his friend snarled a remark about Rammstein under his breath as they passed Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. Harris confronted the friend and said, “Every day you pass me and make fun of me saying Rammstein sucks. Why do you do this crap asshole? What did I do to you?” The friend replied “Oh man you’re so cool, you’re my idol!” Klebold approached to back up Harris but the bell rang and they left for class.
