Kent State shootings 1970: 4 students shot dead by Ohio National Guard - TomoNews {4:55}

KENT, OHIO — On May 4, 1970 the Ohio National Guard killed four students while trying to disperse an unpermitted anti-war rally at Kent State University.

Then-U.S. President Richard Nixon announced the Cambodian incursion on Thursday April 30, sparking anti-war demonstrations in campuses across the country. Lootings and violence prompted a State of Emergency in the city and the National Guard were mobilised over the weekend.

The situation came to a head the following Monday when the guardsman tried break up a crowd of some 500 anti-war protesters, along with nearly 2,500 spectators. Their advances scattered much of the crowd, but some remained, so the guardsmen decided to return to their original position.

However at least 28 of them turned on the crowd and started shooting. Four were killed and nine wounded in the 13-second volley of gunfire.

After you hear his talk and look at his photos it's pretty obvious someone ordered the Guard to open fire on the few people in a near empty parking lot.

The attack on and death of James Reeb helped draw national attention to the voting rights struggle. The death of a white minister drew the personal attention of President Lyndon B. Johnson. On March 15, President Johnson publicly advocated for the passage of a strengthened voting rights bill in a televised address to Congress. Congress subsequently passed the Voting Rights Act, and President Johnson signed it into law in August 1965.
