    Kent State tape indicates altercation and pistol fire preceded National Guard shootings (audio)

    KENT, Ohio -- A noisy, violent altercation and four pistol shots took place about 70 seconds before Ohio National Guardsmen opened fire on antiwar protesters at Kent State University, according to a new analysis of a 40-year-old audiotape of the event.
    The discovery adds new perspective to -- and raises new questions about -- one of the signature events of the 20th century, after four decades of spirited discussion and research.

    Well he always denied shooting his weapon after he was attacked by the crowd, the implications are enormous IMO.

    Wouldn't be surprised if it's accurate, but why is this information only being learned now?

    WOW!!!

    Good Lord! If this is true, can you imagine the GUILT Norman must have been feeling, for all of these years,

    knowing that HE was the Prime Motivator behind that fiasco...

    On the other hand, it IS strange that it's taken this long for any conspiracy theorists to delve into an investigation of the tapes. Why would TPTB (FBI, National Guardsmen, whomEVER) want to do this sort of cover-up?

    Cripes.

    If the anti-war protesters hadn't been acting like idiots, rioting and destroying property in town, the Guard wouldn't have been called in.

    I said LONG ago, including on this board, that the rioters precipitated that event.

    Correction: They were a bunch of upper middle class cowards that felt the world should be theirs with no strings attached. They were already exempt from the draft because their daddys were rich enough to send the little bastards to college where it was nice and safe while lower middle class and the poor had to fight.

    Whether a pistol was fired or not is moot. There is no evidence the kids killed (murdered?) were engaged in any illegal activity.
    As a side bar question I'd like to know how old ConHog is, his comments reflect both an immaturity and an ignorance of history.
