Mayhem & arrests on campus, Part I (Updated over a year ago)
Part I of a KQED News report from San Francisco State College, featuring major skirmishes between students and riot police on campus and many arrests. Pro-strike speakers address crowds and Dr. Carlton Goodlett puts himself between riot police and students, trying to maintain a semblance of order. A fight between protesters is shown and many students are seen covered in blood or unconscious on the floor. This footage shows how at times the demonstrations escalated into ugly and chaotic riots. President Robert Smith tries to justify the police presence but is shouted down by an angry roar from the massed students. Some of this is duplicate material from KQN 183.
