This Cold Case Kansas special covers the political unrest in Lawrence, Kansas, that led to the deaths of Rick "Tiger" Dowdell and Nick Rice. Dowdell was shot by police on July 16, 1970. Rice was shot when patrolmen opened fire on a crowd outside the Gaslight Tavern four days later. Interviewed for this account were writer Jim Girard, historian Rusty Monhollon, and Rice's mother. The article appeared in the tmi Weekly in 2009.  View it in its original format for free on Scribd.
