at that point you have to wonder though, would the gunman have even pulled the pistol had the security not been an intimidating biker gang?

as for this being the 'death' of the 60s i think it's just a cop out for the flower power movement. same way that they use the coincidence of Woodstock's turnout as a reflection of the peak of their movement they used Altamont's negativity as justification for never having actually done anything.
