Long Beach remembers the L.A. riots 25 years later

Youth reporters with VoiceWaves in Long Beach interviewed residents and police officers who lived through the civil unrest that broke out in 1992 in Los Angeles when the police officers charged with using excessive force in the Rodney King beating were acquitted. “All that tension that had been building for so many years finally let go.” Watch the video at VoiceWaves.
