    54 people were murdered and hundreds assaulted. The liberal media showed little remorse for what they promoted and Obama hired a ringleader, Van Jones to be on his green jobs board.

    changed? not for people like the racists here who have NO personal stake in what happened. But for those involved, they have changed and so has society, a little bit.

    King was an alcoholic wife beater! Most of the time people would applaud a wife beater getting his ass kicked, but after a guy toss a punch a cop and then gets beaten by police officers on tape it's AKO to destroy your neighborhood.

    Just like WATTS, the LA ghettos still haven't recovered. Many of those BLACK OWNED businesses never opened again!

    King did not riot. You did not read the link. I always disliked King, but when he speaks with media for articles like the one you ignored, he grows on me.

    He has many flaws, probably as many as you do.

    No shit he didn't riot his arrested inspired the riot, but that is what happens when you drink and drive and get out of the car and toss punches at cops. I guarantee if Rodney King was WHITE was drinking and driving and got out of his car and tossed punches at the cops he would have been beaten in a similar fashion. Large wife beaters don't think people are going to fight back.

    Should the cops have been disciplined? No doubt! But the BLACK community were SOLELY in wrong one in the LA Riot. They were the aggressors and they deserve universal condemnation by everyone regardless of race.

    Again just like Watts the LA ghettos STILL haven't recovered and probably won't. These ASSHOLES think they were getting justice by destroying their communities, churches, SCHOOLS, civic centers, youth centers, businesses, HOMES, grocery stores (after the riots these areas has a shortage of food to which the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT who they said the hate some much had to step in and save them) and jobs of their neighbors and communities! It annoying and ignorant.

    The liberal theme of the LA Riot is the one that seems to survive the test of time! Yet they will NEVER state how the Black Race Hustlers inspired the Chaos, DEMANDED IT, how the Black youth is out of control to respond in such a fashion, how the LIBERAL media is so dishonest they can't help but inflame racial divide instead of giving the both sides of the story (heck we see it today with the innocent Zimmerman be portrayed as the guilty before innocent)!

    The LA Riot is a BLACK EYE for the African American community, but they won't step up and say they were in the wrong, they will say they were forced to by a injust society! What crap!

    Its been a long time since there has been a riot. We've got the Zimmerman thing now though, so no doubt when he is found not guilty they will have an excuse to riot again.

    Many black owned businesses thought putting a sign in the window saying "Black Owned" would save them. It didn't, mostly because many of the looters were mexican opportunists who didn't care who was black and who wasn't.

    Mayor Tom Bradley was responsible for the riots in 1992. He got on television and gave this statement.

    Two hours after the verdicts were announced April 29, Bradley went on television to blast the Simi Valley jury that, he said, "asked us to accept the senseless and brutal beating of a helpless man."

    He added: "The jury's verdict will never outlive the images of the savage beating seared forever into our minds and souls. . . . I understand full well that we must give voice to our great frustration. I know we must express our profound outrage. But we must do so in ways that bring honor to ourselves and our communities."

    The fires started immediately. The timeline was examined in a 20/20 report by Ted Koppel clearly showing Bradley's culpability. The written words of Tom Bradley cannot convey the anger in his voice or his barely suppressed rage of his body language. I remember seeing him make that statement live and at the same time thinking that "This is gonna mean some big time trouble."
