Were shootings ordered at Kent State?


One of the Kent State shooting victims argues that Guardsmen were ordered to fire upon students during the infamous 1970 incident, and he says an audio recording made that day will back him up. Experts are getting to analyze a tape that one student made, to see if Alan Canfora's claim is true. Four students were killed that day. Eight Guardsmen were indicted, but a federal judge eventually dismissed the charges, saying the prosecution's case was too weak. (Need a quick history lesson? Wikipedia has a Kent State entry here.)
