  •  I Think Diarist Was at Ohio State Which Blew Up (0+ / 0-)

    2 days before the entire rest of the nation because of previously scheduled coalition demonstrations. The police response to a dozen or so small protests led to pepper gas flushing maybe 10,000 or more students out of dorms and frat houses onto the campus and surrounding streets. It looked and felt like a war zone the first day or so, very traumatic for many people.

    The Ohio National Guard and Governor Rhodes had 3 days of this experience right on their front door under their belts when the decision to send troops to Kent was made.
