The 1992 Los Angeles Riots, also known as the 1992 Los Angeles Civil Unrest, were sparked on April 29, 1992 when a jury (made up of 10 whites, a Latino of unknown nationality and an Asian) acquitted four Los Angeles Police Department officers accused in the videotaped beating of African- American ex-convict motorist Rodney King following a high- speed pursuit. Thousands of people in the Los Angeles area rioted over the six days following the verdict. At that time, similar riots and anti-police actions took place all over the United States and Canada. Widespread looting, assault, arson and murder occurred, and property damages topped roughly US$1 billion. In all, 53 people died during the riots and thousands more were injured.
