1992 Los Angeles riots remembered

December 10, 2006

The riots, which followed the acquittal by a white jury of four police officers who were videotaped beating black motorist Rodney King, caused the death of 55 people, thousands of injuries and close to $1 billion in damage.

Was the jury actually “white”? Was Rodney King actually a “black” motorist? Also the death count and monetary count is somewhat debatable also. I was reading about the LA riot/s and it seems that it/they were about a lot more than just the Rodney King trial.
