Gassing students

While I'm thinking about the 60s, here's a nice trip down memory lane. This photo is one of the few documented cases of a government authorizing the use of a WMD on its own students. It shows an California National Guard helicopter deploying tear gas on Sproul Plaza during a protest at UC Berkeley. This action was authorized by Governor Ronald Reagan.

Warms my heart. But maybe that's just the gas.
