Kent State: Forensic Audio Experts Uncover Order to Fire on Students

The Ohio National Guardsmen who fired on students and antiwar protesters at Kent State University on May 4, 1970 were given an order to prepare to shoot, according to a new analysis of a 40-year-old audio tape of the event.

Interesting development. It’s thought by one or two PBS-lovin’ staff that this was mentioned in a recent documentary. For others, it calls to mind the Dead Kennedys’ “I Am the Owl”, a song told from the point of view of a government operative who “seeks out the foul”. After drugging and staging an accident with a youth leader, he states:

In ten years we’ll leak the truth By then it’s only so much paper

To those involved, it’s never “so much paper”, but after 10 (or 40) years, the urgency is certainly diminished.
