Best Answer

After the Kent State shootings of May 4, 1970, student protests continued to some extent until the end of the Vietnam War. There were convictions of three students involved, but a conviction of guardsmen and officials was overturned due to jury intimidation. The case was settled with the payment of reparations to the families of those injured and killed.

The use of armed guardsmen was restricted after recommendations by public commissions. The use of lethal ammunition by the Guard became severely restricted.

What provoked the massive protest at Kent State University?

Racial segregation and inequality provoked the massive protest at Kent State University. This was concerning black students who felt mistreated. They wanted to advance their human rights, and therefore their own causes.


Effects of the Kent State shootings?

The shooting at Kent State on May 4, 1970 occurred as armed National Guard troops fired on a crowd of student anti-war demonstrators. Four students were killed and nine were wounded. There had been violent confrontations between the Guard and the students, and the Guard was attempting to disperse the demonstrators. When a small group of soldiers faced a much larger crowd of students, they fired into the crowd. Although the federal proceedings against guardsmen and authorities were concluded in 1974, an audio tape analyzed in 2010 provided additional information, and could potentially result in further proceedings on a state level. However, double jeopardy and the passage of 40 years make this unlikely.
