The 1992 LA Riots were started when 4 white police officers intentionally beat black motorist, Rodney King. The beating was captured on video tape by a bystander, the 4 cops went on trial. When they were acquitted by a white judge and an all-white jury, what started as a protest turned into 4 days of all-out anarchy on the streets of LA. The rioters looted stores, started fires, and would drag people from their cars and beat them in the streets. After 6 days of arson, looting, and murder, the riots were suppressed, and schools, banks, businesses, etc. started to re-open. A total of 53 people died in the riots, referred to as the "LA 53".
When the 4 cops were acquitted, it started the LA Riots.
