Tom Grace, The Shooting at Kent State (1970)
“He has very poor eyesight, and on glasses, and on May 4 he couldn’t get the gas mask on over his glasses, so he had to war the gas mask without glasses. He was blind as a bat without them, and he admitted he just knew he was shooting in a certain direction. That was a startling admission. There was a guy out there who could hardly see, blasting away with an M-1.”
As Tom Grace who were one of the victim at the shooting remembers sending fairly blinded guardsman to the scene, I believe this statement is as shocking as the actual Kent State Shooting. . This shows how little the government care about its citizens. The government plan to draft young american to Cambodia without clear justification or explanation. Either we will be force to fight in Cambodia or be shoot to death if we were on their way. This is the moment we are out here by our own and the Government is up their for their own profits. Talk about distrust and cynicism.
