Thanks for the links but they didn't work. I clicked on both of them and my computer said it they were in error. About the riots, I find the loss of life repulsive. The destruction of the city was terrible. Have you ever thought about why that happened? The social conditions that preceded this massive act of irrational rage made the conditions ripe for a riot. Yes Rodney King made a lot of bad choices but when the police decided to beat him silly they took the law into their own hands. You know, I've noticed among Pan-Aryanists the tendency to use Rodney King and the LA Riots as "proof" to show how wicked we blacks really are. They also point out Reginald Denny as an example of a white person paying a hefty "luxury tax" for his skin color. What they don't tell you about Reginald Denny is that 4 BLACK people:( http://www.time.com/time/specials/2007/la_rio... http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/l-riots-g... )Data as promised. This is how blacks justify unfairness.
La Riots April 29, 1992, over the beating of Rodney King who was under the influence of alcohol and drugs who was in vehicle attempting to elude the police officers in a high speed chase in access of 100 mph. AS a result blacks in La Rioted for 6 days burning down their city causing 800 million dollars in damage not to mention 53 people were killed. The black rioters attacked Koreans stores and beat, raped, and murdered Shop owners. Burning the businesses down after looting. The dead included 25 blacks,16 latinos, 8 whites, 2 asians, and 3 middle easterner.
Deaths in the 1992 LA Riot
THE FIRE LAST TIME
April 26 - May 2, 2002
The L.A. 53
by Jim Crogan
FIFTY-THREE PEOPLE DIED in L.A.'s riot 10 years ago.
Gunfire killed 35, including eight people shot by law enforcement and two by National Guardsmen. Six died in arson fires. Attackers used sticks or boards to kill two others. Stabbings killed two. Six died in car accidents; two in hit-and-runs. One was strangled.
The violence crossed racial and ethnic lines. The dead included 25 African-Americans, 16 Latinos, eight whites, two Asians, one Algerian, and one Indian or Middle Easterner. Men outnumbered women, 48 to 5.
One of the more troubling statistics: 22 of the cases remain open, unsolved homicides.
Investigative reporter JIM CROGAN, using coroner's reports, police records and interviews, compiled these snapshots of the final moments of the lives of L.A.'s 53.
Past students expressed concern about my not mentioning White people killed in the 1992 Los Angeles riot. Besides Reginald Denny, who was beaten but not killed,
there were three other White people who were killed in front of witnesses during the riot.
Of course, these were not the only people killed in the riot. Most who were killed were Black and Latino. I found a web site that listed all of the deaths and what is known about their circumstances.
I have summarized this information in the table below, and have also pasted below a copy of the material from the web site. The more general site includes many other articles about the riot.
came to Mr. Denny's rescue. I remember an interview on TV that a news anchor had with Mr. Green and he described Mr. Denny as his "friend." Hmmmmm...these black people don't sound evil to me. As a matter of fact, Mr. Murphy was an engineer. Do these links answer your questions?
