The Shots That Won’t Be Forgotten As the 61 shots which were fired by the National Guards, 13 of the 61 bullets struck 13 protesting students, leaving nine of them wounded, and the remaining four students dead. Mary Ann Vecchio, a fourteen-year old runaway, saw the body of Jeffery Miller, a student of Kent State University, fell to her knees holding him and cried out in agony, even though she never knew him (“Four Students Killed At Kent State by National Guard, May 4, 1970.”) On May 4th 1970, students from Kent State University gathered together to protest against President Nixon’s decision of deploying American troops to Cambodia in order to complete an invasion. As the students began their protest, they began to turn from peaceful protesting into an unfriendly demonstration which caused the National Guard to step in. The students began to rile up, they began to threaten the guards by throwing rocks, and yelling obscene remarks to them. The National Guard felt they had no choice, but to fire their weapons, causing the four students to be killed (“Kent State Shootings- Timeline.”) Although the shooting was a tragic event, the whole event could’ve been avoided if the students would have left the Guards alone, and if the National Guard didn’t feel the need to shoot the students out of self-defense.

The experiment spreads fast throughout the school and quickly spins out of control. Only a handful of students bother to question what is going on. Laurie’s Boyfriend, David got so caught up in the wave that he ended up hurting Laurie because of her refusal to co-operate with it. The destructive nature of power is also shown when Laurie tells Mr. Ross, “It’s taken over, you can’t say anything against it, people are afraid too.” Similar to Shaw shank Redemption, where the destructive nature of power is demonstrated throughout the whole movie, “You eat, when we say you eat. You piss.
His killers were never convicted. There are several happenings after the time of his stabbing that the Macpherson report brought to the public’s attention that damaged the police force’s reputation forever. Macpherson report In 1997 home secretary Jack Straw announced a public inquiry into the matters arising from the death of Stephen Lawrence to be conducted by Sir William Macpherson. ‘William Macpherson’s report was heralded as the most radical official statement on race, policing and criminal justice ever produced in this country’ (McLaughlin 1999). William Macpherson split the report into two separate sections one part being on the matters arising from the death on Stephen Lawrence, and part 2 about the lessons to be learnt from this crime.
Paul felt the need to lie compulsively. During his meeting in the principal’s office he was asked to state why he was there, his response was that he wanted to come back to school, “This was a lie, but Paul was quite accustomed to lying; found it, indeed, indispensable for overcoming friction”, (Cather, 245). Thus, Paul used his lies to make him feel more comfortable in situations that were vexing. Paul’s speech and his mannerisms were not appreciated by his classmates, and his teachers; his teachers expressed this by “falling upon him without mercy”, during his meeting in the principal’s office. The students showed this by becoming “listless” during his stories.
Danner worked to illustrate the story from a variety of viewpoints, including how the United States came into the picture, how the guerilla rebel forces reacted to the mass killings of civilians by the Salvadorian army, along with how all of these relationships interacted with one other.

Since they didn’t do all the following Cho was able to purchase a hand gun which allowed him to murder several people and to commit suicide.
