    Larry Grathwohl was an eyewitness to the infamous Flint War Council held from December 27 to 30, 1969. The Weathermen joined the Black Panthers, the White Panthers and other assorted “freedom fighters” in Michigan to discuss how an armed struggle might bring down the US government or, at the very least, show the communist movements in the Third World “they had support within the imperialistic mother country”. Probably the highest-ranking member of the Weather Bureau was Bernadine Dohrn, who set the tone for the War Council, praising Charles Manson for the slaying of the pregnant Sharon Tate and seven others...

    KENT, Ohio - A large crowd gathered just after 11 p.m. Saturday behind the Taylor Hall at Kent State University to honor the fallen. The crowd stood near the Victory Bell holding candles in remembrance of May 4th, 1970. It was 44 years ago that four students were killed after 67 shots were fired in 13 seconds by the National Guard. The students were pushed over to the parking lot of Prentice Hall as they were protesting the Vietnam War. Students and volunteers are still standing in the parking lot area where the four students died. The students will stand...

    On May 4, 1970, four Kent State University students were killed and nine injured when members of the Ohio National Guard opened fire during a demonstration protesting the Vietnam War. In 2010, the site of the Kent State University shootings was placed on the National Register of Historic places by the Department of Interior with support of the Ohio Preservation Office. Carole Barbuto, a communication studies professor at Kent State University who was a junior there in 1970, spoke to Behold about some of the more than 4,000 images (many from student photographers) the university has in its archive related...

    Exhibit A that college football teams do need exhibition games? In Kent State’s season opener against Towson, both teams committed stupendously boneheaded acts on the same play. Late in the first half, the Golden Flashes were forced to punt. The ball became live after it grazed the Tigers return man, whereupon Kent State sophomore Andre Parker eagerly scooped up the pigskin inside the Towson 10-yard line … and proceeded to run toward his own end of the field.

    Dear Governor Kasich (http://governor.ohio.gov/): It has been awhile since we talked about the case of Julio Pino – a tenured member of the faculty of Kent State University. Shortly after I last wrote to you there was a Secret Service raid on his home. The raid was meant to ensure that certain veiled threats directed to the Obama White House were not a prelude to some planned act of violence. I thank you for any role you may have played in helping alert the federal authorities. As you may know, Pino is continuing to cause substantial problems in Ohio. I...

    A tape recording of the shooting deaths of four Kent State University students by Ohio National Guardsmen in 1970 reveals the sound of pistol shots 70 seconds earlier, a newspaper reported Friday, citing the work of a forensic audio expert. If the pistol fire is authenticated, it could prove a theory that the Guardsmen thought they were being shot at during a campus Vietnam War protest and also could back up witnesses who said an FBI informant monitoring the protest fired warning shots because he felt threatened. The National Guard opened fire on student protesters on May 4, 1970, killing...

    This Saturday, professional progressives — mostly union types, self-described communists, “faith groups” and other full-time “activists” — bussed their minions into Washington, DC, hoping to outdo Glenn Beck’s spectacular Restore America event at the same location. After the fact, AP reported that crowds at the hastily organized “One Nation” rally “were less dense” than those at Beck’s — a bit of unintentional (I hope) humor, perhaps? According to another report picked up by Drudge: While the Beck rally stretched well down the National Mall, Saturday’s event was shaping up to be far smaller, with sparse groups lingering around the reflecting...

To respond with violence would dishonor Grant's memory, they said.

    The student antiwar movement of the late '60s and early '70s lives on in American consciousness as a symbol of high-minded idealism. Some like to point to the altruism and innocence of the movement and the way it stirred students out of their apathy, creating a generation of activists. Such a view conveniently ignores the movement's essential self-centeredness, its denunciation of patriotism, its rejection of authority, and its penchant for violence. Yet all of those things were clearly on display in the events leading up to the afternoon on May 4, 1970, perhaps the very apogee of student protest in...

    Previously undisclosed FBI documents suggest that the Kent State antiwar protests were more meticulously planned than originally thought and that one or more gunshots may have been fired at embattled Ohio National Guardsmen before their killings of four students and woundings of at least nine others on that searing day in May 1970. As the nation marks the 40th anniversary of the Kent State antiwar protests Tuesday, a review of hundreds of previously unpublished investigative reports sheds a new — and very different — light on the tragic episode. The upheaval that enveloped the northeastern Ohio campus actually began three...

The professor has been linked to terrorist activity – such as posting bomb-making instructions on a terrorist website. He’s also posted pleas to use the bombs against American troops. And I’ve amassed evidence that he contributed to that terrorist website using his Kent State University computer. Nonetheless, the professor who should already have been water-boarded, tried, and sentenced continued to taunt me after the article ran last Friday. In fact, on Saturday, he sent...

Costello pondered the effect of the Neda murder video on the Iranian protests, and flashed a famous photo from the 1970 shootings [audio clips from the report are available here]. Anchor Kyra Phillips introduced the overall theme of Costello’s report: “By now, you’ve probably heard about Neda, the young Iranian woman that was gunned down in Tehran. Well, in death,...

Iconic photos of the event appearing in newspapers and television galvanized the nation and inflamed the anti-war movement in the U.S. Millions of students protested and nearly 1,000 colleges and universities were shut down after the Kent State shooting.
