Let’s recall that of the four killed and nine wounded at the Kent State shootings, some were bystanders:

Some of the students who were shot had been protesting the Cambodian Campaign, which President Richard Nixon announced during a television address on April 30. Other students who were shot had been walking nearby or observing the protest from a distance.

I guess public shaming and pressure can work.


#4

Yeah, but should the protesters themselves been shot?


#5

A rookie state senator’s campaign was endorsed by Barry Goldwater, who’s been dead for 19 years?


#6

I’m glad some law makers are standing up to authoritarian scum. What about congress?


#7

No, the protestors themselves should not have been shot.

If you knew me better, you wouldn’t ask such a question.


#8

In a world of text, you are what you write.


#9

Recalled. What does that have to do with the now-dead AZ bill?

EDIT:

I don’t know you. Would you mind expanding on your original post?


#10

Fair enough… but I don’t actually know you… I could only go by what you wrote, I’m afraid. So glad to hear it. The problem was the state reaction to the protestors, I think we can agree, not the protests themselves, which are free speech expressions.

And @wrecksdart makes a good point - what connection are you attempting to make for us?


#11

Please help me parse what you intend to communicate here.

I don’t have an agenda or a purpose to lay a “gotcha” on you.

I truly am not bridging the gap between the article on bOINGbOING and the article on Wikipedia.

What meaning do you wish to convey by their juxtaposition?

Decent Sobriety from the Mississippi of the South West?


#13

It sounds like he was endorsed by this guy, not this guy.

The scum congeals together.


#16

It’s amazing to me. They simply can’t imagine that a person who is being stripped of their access to health care would want to demonstrate. Nope, it must be George Soros.


#17

This is good, but the existence of this bill is still troubling: it demonstrates just how insane these people really are, at this very moment; and having drawn so much support, it will reappear, sooner rather than later.


#18

Could you please clarify what point you are making with the Kent State article in this context?
