Prendergast reports on the "aftermath of the Columbine school shootings, particularly the missteps by law enforcement officials." The series features the "first publication of pages from gunman's Eric Harris' diary, which police investigators have kept hidden for two years, showing that Harris had composed a detailed plan of the attack...."
