On May 4, 1970, members of the Ohio National Guard descended on the campus of Kent State University in Ohio to quash an antiwar protest. During the protest, soldiers opened fire on an unarmed group of students-firing 67 rounds in 13 seconds – killing four and injuring nine others. To this date, not a single person has been held accountable and the government still refuses to admit that it participated in the murder of its own citizens. Kent State is the one school shooting that the US government wants you to forget.

Kent State University shooting cover up. Americans would do well to remember this did not take place in some tyrannical other country, but right in their own backyard.

It has been 48 years since May 4, 2018, and there has yet to be a credible and impartial investigation into the massacre. Also, no group or individual has faced a single consequence for opening fire on innocent students and killing them. Although eight of the National Guardsmen who opened fire that day were indicted by a grand jury, all of their charges were eventually dismissed.

The families of the victims were given $15,000, a statement of regret, and essentially told to get on with their lives.

For decades after the killings, the US government did their best to cover up the shooting. As an in depth explanation from Counter Punch points out, “the US government took complete control of the narrative in the press and ensuing lawsuits. Over the next ten years, authorities claimed there had not been a command-to-fire at Kent State, that the ONG had been under attack, and that their gunfire had been prompted by the “sound of sniper fire.” Instead of investigating Kent State, the American leadership obstructed justice, obscured accountability, tampered with evidence, and buried the truth. The result of these efforts has been a very complicated government cover-up that has remained intact for more than forty years.”

Not until 2010, after undeniable forensic evidence was dug up by independent and private researchers did the real truth of that day begin to surface.

Aurel Krause and Emily Kunstler founded the Kent State Truth Tribunal (KSTT), which helped to expose the sheer lies fed to the American public about what really happened that fateful day.

In spite of this overwhelming and indisputable evidence, in 2012, the US government, once again, refused to reopen the case. However, the truth still came out.

A crucial piece of the conspiracy was apparently uncovered in 2010 that played a pivotal role in exposing the crimes of the US government. Audio recordings were analyzed and subsequently found to record the Guardsmen being given orders to murder the protesters.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported on this revelation in 2010:

“Guard!” says a male voice on the recording, which two forensic audio experts enhanced and evaluated at the request of The Plain Dealer. Several seconds pass. Then, “All right, prepare to fire!”

“Get down!” someone shouts urgently, presumably in the crowd. Finally, “Guard! . . . ” followed two seconds later by a long, booming volley of gunshots. The entire spoken sequence lasts 17 seconds.

Below is a video of what oppression looks like:

According to the reports, the review was done by Stuart Allen and Tom Owen, two nationally respected forensic audio experts with decades of experience working with government and law enforcement agencies and private clients to decipher recorded information.

Despite the troops’ claims of protesters throwing rocks at them, the shots were fired from 60 feet away. What’s more, as Allen and Owen point out, there is no audio indicating that the troops who opened fire were getting hit with rocks.

There is undeniable evidence, however, that the US government killed innocent civilians for protesting war and yet still, no one was held accountable and the government refuses to acknowledge it.

As Krause explains, “Kent State remains a glaring example of government impunity, it sends a message that protestors can be killed by the state for expressing their political beliefs. This lack of accountability and hostility towards peaceful expression flies in the face not only of our Constitution, but also our international human rights commitments.

Indeed, the idea that one’s government can kill them for peaceful protest is chilling, which is why the establishment wants you to forget about it.

Americans would do well to remember this did not take place in some tyrannical other country, but right in their own backyard.

  1. Do you think governments (both federal and local) are your side? They have been run by a bunch of evil aliens including reptilians and their hybrids. They are even not human. They originally have come from some other planets such as Orion Star System and Alpha Draconis. Polar Star is the part of the Draco Star system where Draconians have come from.

    They are not going to help us, instead they are managing us as their food and slaves. What you don’t know is those aliens perceive humans as their enemies. On the Georgia Guide Stone, It has been written that 95% human population should reduced. They want only 5% of human population to remain for them so that those 5% can serve them as their food and slaves. They are still try to many ways to kill us including vaccines, poisoned water, poisoned air, poisoned foods, planned wars etc…

    Who can help us from these evil aliens are star people belong to Galactic Federation of Light that is cleaning up those evil aliens on the Earth. The Earth is the last stronghold of those evil aliens who disguise as human. They are wolves in sheep clothes. They look like you, but they are not human. They can shape-shift into human. Or they can snatch the human body to take over (=Body Snatcher). Or even they can create clone bodies from discarded cells like pop smear and foreskin in a hospital, and ride over those clone bodies. Just look around you. A guy or woman next to you might be that kind of evil alien.

  2. HERE WE GO AGAIN! I see you’re injecting politics into your site again. I don’t here to read about the Gay Scouts of America nor “peaceful protests”. Isn’t this website about strange weather, sounds, etc????? There’s a reason why I stay away from the news and politics, I hate it. It’s all biased. I love this site but damn, can you please just stick to the subject of Strange Sounds/Weather?

  3. No, it wasn’t covered up at all. Your title is very misleading. It was all over the news, it was horrible and a really big deal that furthered the anti War movement. (which has been a Communist driven propaganda agenda, by the way) . I’m really getting sick and tired of all the propaganda we’re inundated with to hate our Country, I hope people are aware that this propaganda of insanity is the agenda of our Enemies. Yes, our Government has done bad things, at the same time, our government has done good things…. We must rid ourselves of the Corrupt people that do the horrible things and protect the Constitution and Bill of Rights.. Our Government isn’t evil, but some of our elected officials are… lets get rid of them. At least one popular song by Crosby Stills Nash and Young was written about what happened at Ohio State, too… People have sung this song for almost 50 years, what happened back then has never been forgotten…….it goes:

    Tin soldiers and Nixon coming
    We’re finally on our own
    This summer I hear the drumming
    Four dead in Ohio
    Gotta get down to it
    Soldiers are cutting us down
    Should have been done long ago
    What if you knew her
    And found her dead on the ground
    How can you run when you know?
