Summary
In the aftermath of the Rodney King verdict, some people used the riots to settle old scores. Officials ignored certain areas of the city to concentrate on the areas inhabited by the affluent. Those caught in the crossfire suffered greatly. The Naked City was exposed to violence that caused over a billion dollars in damage and many deaths
Summary
"At 3:15 p.m. on April 29, 1992, a jury acquitted two Los Angeles Police Department officers charged with using excessive force to subdue civilian Rodney King, and failed to reach a verdict on the same charges involving a third officer. Less than two hours later, the city of LA, a powder keg of racial tension, exploded in violence as people took to the streets in a terrifying orgy of rioting that lasted six days. In 144 hours, sixty lives were lost. And then there were the murders outside of active rioting sites, committed by gangbangers who used the lawlessness of a city on fire to viciously settle scores. A gritty and cinematic work of sourced fiction, All Involved vividly recreates this turbulent and terrifying time through the stories of six interconnected lives caught up in extraordinary circumstances"--
