13. weekend warriors' blood would have mixed
If so a lot of weekend warriors' blood would have mixed with that of the students.

I'm not sure what you mean with this. Do you really think the kids would have attacked the BFD? If so, I totally disagree. The kids were in a relatively peaceful mood until they were ordered to disperse. That, they felt, was an infringement on their first amendment rights to free speech and freedom of assembly. Had the Guard simply allowed the protest to play out, I don't think any of this would have happened. And, in any case, the students had no weapons with which to draw much of the weekend warriors' blood, even if they had wanted to. Yes, they threw a few stones and spent tear gas canisters. But, except for Terry Norman, the FBI agent provocateur, there weren't any guns in the crowd that we know of.

I'd appreciate some more elaboration on your thoughts. Thanks!
