Murder at Kent State:
40-Year Coverup Exposed
Over 40 years ago, on May 4, 1970, National Guardsmen opened fire on unarmed students at Kent State University in Ohio who were protesting the escalation of the Vietnam war. Many students were injured and 4 were killed. Several high-level government commissions held investigations and absolved the Guard, its commanders, and the FBI of all wrongdoing. Now new forensic evidence has emerged that explodes this coverup.
