Who says "it can't happen here"?

Let's not forget this.

It's very possible considering how militarized the police have become.

Can't forget the Jackson State shootings either. Two black students were killed; it was around the same time as the Kent State shootings. The Jackson State killings got about one billionth of the publicity that Kent State got.

Jackson State happened after Kent State, though fairly close. Even ignoring the racial realities of the time, the latter shooting not getting as much attention doesn't surprise me. What does shock and dismay me is that no one was ever convicted of murder in either case. Hell, in recent years, a Seattle cop killed, without cause, a deaf man (John T. Williams) who had a 3" long woodcarving knife. The knife is legal in that city.
