The Kent State shootings—also known as the May 4 massacre or the Kent State massacre—occurred at Kent State University in the city of Kent, Ohio, and involved the shooting of unarmed college students by members of the Ohio National Guard on Monday, May 4, 1970. The guardsmen fired 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.
Some of the students who were shot had been protesting against the American invasion of Cambodia, which President Richard Nixon announced in a television address on April 30. Other students who were shot had been walking nearby or observing the protest from a distance.
There was a significant national response to the shootings: hundreds of universities, colleges, and high schools closed throughout the United States due to a student strike of four million students, and the event further affected the public opinion—at an already socially contentious time—over the role of the United States in the Vietnam War.

This is ATS people. "Deny Ignorance". This woman is homeless and 3 months pregnant, she's a model of bad choices. Usually when you find pregnant women on the streets they are there because they are addicted to drugs. There are plenty of places of refuge for pregnant women, there is no reason for them to be homeless unless they refuse to stay clean (as most areas of refuge require). The article states that she is 3 months pregnant. Guess how long the fetus is at 12 weeks- 2-1/2 inches. Guess what the probability is that a blow to the stomach area could kill it- zero. Now ask yourself what the probability is that this woman is partaking of illegal drugs and THAT is what caused the miscarriage.

Some people in this country are so twisted up. They will support an army to go to war in the name of democracy. They will allow their childrens lives and their own fortunes to be squander across the planet in the name of democracy. While in the home of the free and brave they support all tryranny and espouse all unnecesary violence. They will cheer as though they are at a sporting game and cheer as though their team won as the blood spills all around. What are they? Who are they and how did they become?
