Riot Gear ready for Kent State Protest

Kent State had an open gun rally along with protests one evening. Students were emailed to go home or to stay where they were during this time. There was a lot of emotional turmoil caused due to the shootings Kent had in the 1970's. This shows the police in riot gear, ready to intervene.
