“Violent protesters who shut down free speech? Time for another Kent State perhaps. One bullet stops a lot of thuggery."
"I'm thinking that another Kent State might be the only solution...They do it because they know there are no consequences yet."
"The point I was trying to make, admittedly I did it very poorly ... was that the violence is really getting out of hand, and much like in the 1960s, the violence created an atmosphere where something terrible and tragic like Kent State could happen."
"We could be headed toward another Kent State tragedy if we don't get a handle on the violence," Adamini said. "It sounds like I was calling for violence, but I was actually trying to call for an end to the violence. ... Some are saying I'm calling for the death of innocent protesters, but nothing could be further from the truth."
