I dont understand

The Kent State shootings (also known as the May 4 massacre or the Kent State massacre) occurred at Kent State University in the U.S. city of Kent, Ohio, and involved the shooting of unarmed college students by the Ohio National Guard on Monday, May 4, 1970. The guardsmen fired 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.

Some of the students who were shot had been protesting against the Cambodian Campaign, which President Richard Nixon announced during a television address on April 30. Other students who were shot had been walking nearby or observing the protest from a distance.

There was a significant national response to the shootings: hundreds of universities, colleges, and high schools closed throughout the United States due to a student strike of four million students, and the event further affected the public opinion—at an already socially contentious time—over the role of the United States in the Vietnam War.

But yet no one remembers Jackson state at all. It occurred May 15, 1970 where at a predominantly black college also held a protest against Vietnam, but this time it was the local police who opened fire on all the students, thankfully only two were killed but yet those two were bystanders one was a boy walking home from high school and the other was a student in the dorm behind the protest. Mean while the police, picked up the shells they had shot and left. No one had called for EMTs until after the police had left, and the police denied ever shooting at the protestors, blatantly ignoring the bullet riddled dorm, and two dead students and all of the injured from both bullets, glass, and from being trampled while people were trying to leave.

The 40 police officered fired 140 times in 30 seconds at a distance of 30-40 feet from the protest. 140 TIMES IN 30 SECONDS.

No one was arrested or held responsible for the shooting because everyone was paying attention to kent state, a white school. Both schools should have been talked about. Both schools should have gotten justice. All the families should have gotten justice. But nope. neither did.

A Greek doctor has photographed an extremely rare moment during a birth, showing a baby still encased inside the amniotic sac after it has been removed from the mother’s body.

Because the sac had not been punctured, Dr Tsigris said the baby did not even realise it had been born and behaved as if it was still inside the mother’s womb.

The doctor said there was no risk to the baby as it was still feeding off the placenta and would begin to breathe as soon as the sac was broken.
