  1. When the news reports about the Kent State shootings? They should NOT say that the guard opened fire on “activists”. They should say that the guard opened fire on WEAPONLESS STUDENTS. Does anyone out there know that classes just let out, and that the sidewalks were full with students walking between buildings and classes? And as far as the protestors are concerned, absolutely no one did anything at all that earned them a death sentence. The guard and the army reservists are all guilty of murder.

  2. On 5/5/20 I emailed Lynna Lai about a mistake she made on her 5/4/20 report about the Kent State shootings. She said the National Guard opened fire on activists. That was not a correct statement. Right before the shootings, the class bells rang, students on their way to and from classes filled the sidewalks, there was a proximity to the smaller group of activists, and the national guard opened fire on weaponless students as well as some activists. In order to protect innocent victims, this fact should be told.

    I never heard back from Lynna Lai about this after emailing her and informing her of this and I think I should hear back from someone. If you cover the KSU story this upcoming 5/4/21, the truth should be told. Thank you.
