The U.S. Gov. was directly to blame for Kent State. The shootings was a lesson the Gov. wanted to get across that worked very well. Try to stop the war machine and we will kill you. The same was true about Waco (David Koresh) The Gov. wanted to establish that people stay with the Christian religion as it is or they will burn you and your children to death. In Jesus's time they hung them on crosses.
