I HEARD ABOUT THE L.A RIOT. I HERAD IT WAS ONE OF THE BIGGEST RIOT OF ALL. MY FAMILY WAS APART OF THE 92 ROIT. IVE HEARD ABOUT HIM AND HOW HE GOT BEAT UP REAL BAD BY THE POLICE AND THEY INJURED HIM REAL BAD. THEY DIDNT CHARGE THE OFFICERS WITH MUCH BUT A SUSPENSION FROM THEIR JOB. ALTHOUGH I DONT KNOW MUCH ABOUT HIM I DO BELIEVE THE RIOT WAS NESSECARY BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT WAS WRONG FOR DOING WHAT THEY DID. I DONT REALLY KNOW ALLL THAT MUCH ABOUT RODNEY KING BUT IM SURE WHAT HE DID WASNT THAT BAD FOR THE OFFICERS TO DO WHAT THEY DID TO HIM.
