Not to put too fine a point on it but it was National Guard that fired the shots at Kent State, not the local of state police.
The ironic part is that one of those killed was a member of the Kent State ROTC corp.
(My personal opinion that there were agent provocateurs
on both sides. There was a student who was an FBI informant carrying a pistol that day. [Government agent provocateur] Almost all of the protesters believed that the National Guard had blanks in their rifles after being told by some members of the protest organizers. [Protester agent provocateur.])
At that point all it took was a match to touch it off.
I went back to the University one time to take a fun course, Cyber Warfare I think.
Anyway, most people sub 21 in the course. The topic of the Vietnam War came up.
I was surprised that they were so unknowledgable about an important event in US History. What they thought they knew they got from Apocalypse Now and Born on the 4th of July.
