On May 4, 1970, the National Guard killed four students and wounded 9 others at Kent State who were protesting the war in Viet Nam.
40 years ago today,May 4th, 4 students were killed, and 9 wounded by National Guard Troops at Kent State University in Ohio.
American troops turned on their own who protested their governments immoral policies in South East Asia.
Interestingly, everything the students said, that the government's policies were based on lies and deceit and were murderously immoral turn out to be true all along.
Here is a link to some first hand accounts from Psychologists who lived during that time on the Psychologists For Social Responsibility Blog.
On May 3,2010, Dick Gordon, interviewed Jerry Lewis, a faculty marshall at Kent State who was there that day. It is worth listening to. To go to The Story's web site with Jerry Lewis interview, click here.
