The next day, union miners killed 23 strikebreakers and mine guards. No one, on either side, ever faced jail time.

1970 - By the time he was 53 years old, on May 4th, four students at Kent State University in Ohio were shot and killed by National Guardsmen. The students were at a peaceful demonstration protesting the invasion of Cambodia by US forces. There had been precedent for the killing of American college students.
