SHADES OF 1970-POLICE ATTACK UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
Shades of 1970 – Police Attack College Students
Written by W.T. RoadBlock Harrell
As I was watching the morning news, I couldn’t believe my eyes. The police were arrogantly hosing down Ohio State University students with pepper spray on our city streets. Were the students looting, fighting with police or attacking the public? No, the “crime” the students were committing was jubilantly celebrating a stunning win by their Ohio Buckeyes football team.
This brought back the horror I saw in 1970, when Kent State students were gunned down by the National Guard on campus. The Kent State students were protesting an unpopular war. Those students were murdered for doing something the U.S. Constitution guaranteed them the right to do
The headlines read; “Kent, Ohio, May 4th 1970– Four students at Kent State University, two of them women, were shot to death this afternoon by a volley of National Guard gunfire. At least 8 other students were wounded.”
Fast forward to 2015 in Columbus, Ohio: In this latest attack, the University students were not protesting anything. They were simply celebrating a win by their Ohio Buckeyes football team. This latest unwarranted police attack on our kids and grandkids shows our nation’s descent into anarchy. Instead of improving, the police are now acting more like an occupying military force and less like police enforcing the law in a constitutional manner.
The “commandos versus kids” videos below are just the tip of the proverbial Iceberg.
