Why We’re Obsessed With ‘The Lost Tapes: L.A. Riots’
On April 29, 1992, following the acquittal of four white Lapd officers in the beating of a black motorist named Rodney King, Los Angeles became a war zone as protestors took to the streets to stand up to the injustice that had occurred. The protests quickly turned violent, leaving 50 people dead and hundreds more in hospitals, while laying waste to parts of the city. On the 25th anniversary of the event, a trio of documentaries -- A&E’s L.A. Burning: The Riots 25 Years Later, Showtime’s Burn Motherf**ker, Burn! and The Lost Tapes: L.A. Riots -- look back on what happened during those six days. The latter »
