Los Angeles Remembers 4/29/1992

Fellow citizens from all over Los Angeles remember the events of 4/29/1992 at several city-wide locations. 
It has been 25 years since the city of Los Angeles exploded in rage after the not-guilty verdicts of the LAPD officers who beat Rodney King. Much has changed since then, and some things have remained frozen in time from that day. 
A whole new generation of people have grown up since then, hopefully we all can all just get along.
