24. can't agree with you on this
One scared 19 year old with a loaded gun shit his pants and opened fire. Everybody around him followed suit.

This is simply NOT true. I have very, very, very little doubt that the first Guardsman to fire that day knew exactly what he was doing. He wanted to shoot, he wanted to kill, and he counted on others to panic and assume an order to fire as well.

You're right that there were scared 19-year-olds there. On both sides of the guns. But you're simply wrong if you don't think there was an intention by many of the older Guardsmen to shoot and to kill that day. Look at this photo again and you will realize that the leaders of this shooting were not scared kids.
