Four dead in Ohio

On this day in 1970 during a peaceful demonstration against the war in Viet Nam four Kent State University students were killed by the Ohio National Guard. Nine other students were injured and one was paralyzed for life.

Sharpshooters? Are you freaking kidding me?

They were undisciplined, poorly led NG goofs with loaded weapons. They were as likely to shoot their own feet off as those poor dang students. Somebody should have jailed the political dumbass(es) who sent the armed NG into a campus. If anything, it was a police situation. That's why we have police. Did any politician pay a price for this? I forgot.

It was all Bush's and the neocons fault. If they had been off in Viet Nam doing their duty instead of slacking off here in the good ole USA, this would have never happened.
