A murmur of dissent over Kent State resolution
Two congressmen refuse to back commemoration
Some of the divisions that led up to the National Guard shooting 13 Kent State students 40 years ago continue. And, as WKSU's M.L. Schultze reports, that became clear on the floors of Congress this week.

U.S. Representative Tim Ryan, whose district includes Kent, introduced a resolution in Congress this week commemorating the anniversary of the shootings at Kent State.
Ryan praised progress since then, including Kent States conflict management program. Though such resolutions usually pass without opposition, two Republicans protested by voting only "present."
Politico reported that Texas Congressman Michael Burgess didn't like the wording of the resolution because " quote -- "We basically single out the Ohio National Guard as being the one at fault."
After the shooting, President Nixon appointed the Presidents  Commission on Campus Unrest. Its final report said the actions of some students in the weekend leading up to the shootings were criminal and dangerous. But guards firing was "unnecessary, unwarranted, and inexcusable."
Ryan's resolution passed unanimously, despite the two "present" votes.

Mr Burgess, who had the guns? Was the Guard ordered to fire on the students? Just a thought.

Thank you Congressmen Ryan and Lewis.

It is ridiculous that anyone would vote against the resolution. In no way, shape or form was the shooting of Kent students justified. In fact, it is incredible that state authorities were never brought to justice for such a blatant act of murder!

How many people can say they are consistently proud of the actions of their congressional representative. Thank you Tim Ryan.
