Riots – May 1970

About 3 weeks after the April 12 sign-on, peacefully protesting students and innocent student bystanders were murdered by troops and police at Kent State University.
The same thing happened at Jackson State University.
Government officials said they deserved to be murdered since they were protesting.
These events completely revitalized student protests.
Suddenly there were thousands (as in over 5,000) in the streets of C’dale and the university; government and police officials thought the protesters should all be shot
as that would be cheaper than jailing them.
Suddenly WIDB had to have a news department, because it didn’t seem right to be playing rock jock hits and jingles when students were being shot, beaten and gassed by police and troops.
