Author: Greensboro Daily News

Biographical/Historical abstract: The Greensboro Daily News is the former morning newspaper of Greensboro, North Carolina.

Additional contributor:

Description: This November 7, 1979, editorial in the Greensboro Daily News discusses the recent events surrounding the shooting of five members of the Communist Workers Party (CWP) at a Death to the Klan rally in Greensboro on November 3, 1979. The editorial attempts to analyze the police reaction to the incident, stating that it was "reasonable" to assume that the KKK would have shown up at the event, but that experience suggested that there probably would have been "no real violence." The editorial also urges a speedy and thorough investigation of the situation.
