So I just watched Watchmen on TV, and in the intro - which is pretty close to actual events - you see the US MP firing into flower power people (I guess anti Vietnam War demonstrators) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...QQz7GvY#t=222s - begins at about 3:42)
Did this really happen? Of course I know about the protests then, but I never heard there was there was lethal violence used against those protestors.

Oh, I just found it, it really happened: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kent_State_shootings. It's quite curious everyone knows about the Tian'anmen massacre, but all people here in vent - pretty much all from germany, austria and switzerland - never heard about the Kent State Shooting.
