1992 > LA riots / uprisings

 

 four Los Angeles policemen

— three of them white —

were acquitted

of the savage beating of Rodney King,

an African-American man.

 

Caught on camera by a bystander,

graphic video of the attack

was broadcast into homes

across the nation and worldwide.

 

Fury over the acquittal

— stoked by years of racial

and economic inequality in the city —

spilled over into the streets,

resulting in five days of rioting

in Los Angeles.

 

It ignited a national conversation

about racial and economic disparity

and police use of force that continues today.

 

(...)

 

A year earlier, in March 1991,

King — who was on parole for robbery —

had led police on a high-speed chase

through Los Angeles;

later, he was charged

with driving under the influence.
 

 

When police finally stopped him,

King was ordered out of the car.

 

Los Angeles Police Department officers

then kicked him repeatedly

and beat him with batons

for a reported 15 minutes.

 

The video showed

that more than a dozen cops stood by,

watching and commenting on the beating.

 

King's injuries resulted in skull fractures,

broken bones and teeth,

and permanent brain damage.

 

Ultimately,

four officers were charged

with excessive use of force.

 

A year later, on April 29, 1992,

a jury consisting of 12 residents

from the distant suburbs of Ventura County

— nine white, one Latino, one biracial, one Asian —

found the four officers not guilty.
