Kent State
Krause essay
October 2011

In the 1960s demonstrations at, and occupations of, US University campuses was in the news all the time. The protests were against many things, but primarily, war. Specifically the American war in Viet Nam, one of the most utterly foolish endeavors in human history.

Breaking news came over the radio and television on May 4, 1970 that four students had been shot and killed by the National Guard at Kent State university in Ohio. Those shots were heard around the world.

Initially investigation revealed the National Guard felt they had been fired on. This would have been a first, these demonstations in the 60s were notoriously non-violent. Recently it came to light a paid FBI informant had fired four shots and these were almost certainly what the National Guard responded to. It was an end of an age of innocence and elightenment. Between the civil rights activity and putting man on the moon there was a great feeling of hope; pollution and war were very unpopular. What could possibly go wrong?

Bang. Bang bang bang.

Sixty seven rifle bullets in thirteen seconds. In those thirteen seconds four students were shot and killed, 9 were injured.

That was it. The protests died down. The war ended when they began drafting senators sons, and the culture of the 1960s, that of hope and ambition just died away to be replaced by the silly seventies and the conservative eighties which were to set the political tone for decades.

Hunter Thompson penned this insightful quote:

Strange memories on this nervous night in Las Vegas. Five years later? Six? It seems like a lifetime, or at least a Main Era—the kind of peak that never comes again. San Francisco in the middle sixties was a very special time and place to be a part of. Maybe it meant something. Maybe not, in the long run ...but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant ...

History is hard to know, because of all the hired bullshit, but even without being sure of "history" it seems entirely reasonable to think that every now and then the energy of a whole generation comes to a head in a long fine flash, for reasons that nobody really understands at the time—and which never explain, in retrospect, what actually happened.

My central memory of that time seems to hang on one or five or maybe forty nights—or very early mornings—when I left the Fillmore half-crazy and, instead of going home, aimed the big 650 Lightning across the Bay Bridge at a hundred miles an hour wearing L. L. Bean shorts and a Butte sheepherder's jacket ...booming through the Treasure Island tunnel at the lights of Oakland and Berkeley and Richmond, not quite sure which turn-off to take when I got to the other end (always stalling at the toll-gate, too twisted to find neutral while I fumbled for change) ... but being absolutely certain that no matter which way I went I would come to a place where people were just as high and wild as I was: No doubt at all about that ...

There was madness in any direction, at any hour. If not across the Bay, then up the Golden Gate or down 101 to Los Altos or La Honda .... You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning ....

And that, I think, was the handle—that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting—on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave ....

So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark —that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

There is seldom only one wave.

With #Occupy protests escalating around the world, know the US federal government historically uses provocateurs to incite violence at protests. Because of Kent State, the American right to assemble in safety remains at high risk since 1970.

Last weekend we found CRITICAL, NEW EVIDENCE in the Kent State Massacre from May 4, 1970. The new info came from viewing a montage of videos, specifically at point 1:07.40 thru 1:08 ~

WATCH FBI informant provocateur Terry Norman, the young man in the light colored sports jacket. Earlier that day Norman's mentor, Detective Tom Kelly from the Kent Police had attempted to have Norman's gun approved for carrying on campus during the demonstrations, but that approval never came so it's KEY that the video clearly shows Norman handing over his gun to Detective Kelly.

From forensic evidence expert Stuart Allen's analyses of the Kent State Tape in 2010, we learned that Norman shot that weapon at the May 4th demonstration as he was attacked & beat-up by students who saw his gun. More on Terry Norman ~

Watching these Kent State videos without sound, Norman's gun hand-off coupled with the post-Kent State Tape analysis, we now understand the importance of this interaction caught on video & at many other sources.

Norman's pistol 'created the sound of sniper fire.' As Norman was held up by the students, the national guard march back & forth, awaiting the sound of sniper fire. 70 seconds after Norman shoots his pistol four times, the national guard command to shoot at unarmed students is given & Norman hightails it out of there into the arms of law enforcement & immediately hands over his gun.

From there on, the FBI thoroughly corrupted key evidence in the Kent State Massacre as the FBI continually changed their 'official' stories. At first the FBI claimed they don't have the gun, then they do while Norman's gun was cleaned, milled & re-coated by the FBI. That the gun had been fired, but the FBI couldn't tell when. Interestingly, the FBI found unmatched bullets in his gun's chambers 'to pretend' it hadn't been fired. Most damning was that J. Edgar Hoover himself 'swore' that Terry Norman wasn't working for the FBI yet soon after Hoover died, the new FBI director came clean that Norman was paid $125 by the FBI in April 1970.

Furthermore, Norman's spent bullet casings were found & catalogued in the Kent State archive yet never entered into evidence, indicating the FBI corrupted the evidence & failed to collect all evidence in every investigation of the Kent State Massacre.

Our recent Kent State letter to Pres Obama/Gen'l Holder, Demanding the Dept of Justice EXAMINE the new evidence in the KENT STATE TAPE ~

DEEP BACKGROUND on the Kent State Massacre ~ [Facebook]

Terry Norman lives at his mountain-top, off-grid outback palace in the Carolinas, enjoying protection and well-paid work for life in US Intelligence.

With #Occupy protests escalating around the world, know the US federal government historically uses provocateurs to incite violence at protests. Because of Kent State, the American right to assemble in safety remains at high risk since 1970.

Having taken a deep view into what happened at the 1970 Kent State Massacre over these last 2 years & hearing the Kent State Tape, it's clear the folks that made Kent State happen are the same folks #Occupy is protesting.

As an example, in 1970 young men were subjected to a draft lottery into the Vietnam war, without the ability to vote against or for the Vietnam war. Americans under 21 years old were drafted, shipped to SE Asia to fight for their country but they had no say.

So young folks began protesting, joining together in civil disobedience to have their voices heard as the Vietnam war escalated in the later 60's.

Kent State profoundly silenced & also massacred the 1st amendment rights of three generations of anti-war folks when four students were killed & nine more were wounded by national guard bullets on May 4, 1970 ~ A Day that Changed America.

The same folks that pulled-off Kent State also collected the evidence. Key Kent State Massacre evidence has been repeatedly not included in the numerous Kent State Massacre investigations, thus indicating collusion along with tampering of evidence.

The folks responsible for 'bringing the war home' at Kent State, were also the war machine & intelligence communities or the military-industrial complex. They continue to pull global strings as they make off with the money now more than 40 years later.
