Los Angeles
Between 5 P.M. and 6 P.M. on this date in 1992 the Los Angeles Riots began in two places. One was out in front of Parker Center (LAPD HQ) in downtown L.A. where an at-first peaceful protest turned violent. The other location was at the corner of Florence and Normandy when an angry crowd developed and was not immediately dispersed by the LAPD who withdrew instead. The situation subsequently cascaded out of control from both locations ultimately lasting three days. Over the three days of rioting 53 people were killed and 2,000 injured and nearly a billion dollars in losses were incurred, most if it in the neighborhoods of the rioters.
