On May 4, 1970, four unarmed students at Vietnam War protests at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, were killed by National Guardsmen. The Forward helpfully reminds us that three of these four were Jewish.

Incidentally, two of the victims (one of them Jewish) were not actually protesters; they were bystanders. Those were slightly crazy times.
