John McCain's Quote on the Ridiculousness of the Filibuster Disregards the Kent State ShootingsSubmitted by RobHino on Sat, 03/09/2013 - 21:57

In 1970, in response to Nixon's widening of the Vietnam War into Cambodia, students throughout the US protested. Nixon sent the National Guard to restore order to the Kent State campus. The resulting consequences changed the course of the war: http://youtu.be/vyzoNCJvy4c
The killings at Kent State are just one example of the use of violence against Americans by our own military. There are other examples. Can you name them?!
