Frontline: Kip Kinkel

  • Aired: 12/21/2012
  • 04:38
  • Rating: NR
From Columbine to Virginia Tech to Sandy Hook, school shootings seem to follow an eerily similar pattern. Kip Kinkel did not kill himself and was not killed by the police. Frontline brings us his confession. It is a rare record of what one school shooter claims was his motivation -- in his own words. This excerpt is disturbing and may not be appropriate for younger viewers.
