Los Angeles riots: 25 years later

On the afternoon of April 29, 1992, a jury in Ventura County acquitted four LAPD officers of beating Rodney G. King. The incident, caught on amateur videotape, had sparked national debate about police brutality and racial injustice. The verdict stunned Los Angeles, and the riots that followed lasted for five days. More than 60 people lost their lives amid the looting and fires that ravaged the city.

I was living in Windsor, ON and folks were worried it would spread to other cities, like Detroit, MI.. Windsorites never more happy to have a river separating Canada & the USA.

Let's not forget what started these riots..

Sad not much has changed in AmeriKKKa in 25 years, other than before they beat African Americans, now they just shoot them.
