It's not always what you don't know that gets you in trouble, but the things that you "know" that aren't true. For years the meme has stood that innocent, unarmed, college student anti-war protesters were gunned down in cold blood without any provocation. New evidence and analysis of a forty year old audio tape seems to indicate the sound of repeated gunfire preceding the horrific incident.
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.
For those of us old enough to remember those days, this certainly puts a different light on an American tragedy.
