There had been many people and students protesting the war all that week, they went so far as to burn the soldier education building on campus. Since the protest had gotten so… out of hand, the national guard was called. Then on May 4th, by the Kent State victory bell, the protest went on, the national guard had surrounded the protest and were throwing tear gas into the crowd. The crowd soon was filling the tear gas cans with cement and throwing them back at the guard, the guard somehow had a miscommunication (as they put it) and fired. The shots hit 13 students, wounding 9, and killing 4.
Actually it was because of protests to the President invading Cambodia. There had been a ROTC building burned down during this time as well as protesters throwing glass bottle…s at the police.. So basically it happend after student riots broke out on campus and in the neighboring town.
In 1970, there were riots at many campuses in the USA after President Nixon called for the invasion of Cambodia (to pursue communist North Vietnamese who sought refuge there) …during the Vietnam War. Since the police could not handle the rioters, the national guard was called out.
Yes the ROTC building was burnt down because of protesters from Kent State University protesting war.
