Kent State Shooting Victim Asks for Re-opening of Investigation
May 4 marks the 37th anniversary of the shooting deaths of students at Kent State University. I write about it every year.
This year, there is news, and one of those injured in the shootings says he has new taped evidence to show there was an order given to open fire.
Alan Canfora, who was wounded in the right wrist during the 1970 anti-war protest, said he recently requested a government copy of the nearly 30-minute tape stored in the Yale University archive.
Just before a 13-second barrage of gunfire, a voice on the tape yells, "Right here! Get Set! Point! Fire!" Canfora said.
The tape will be released at a news conference tomorrow.
