Watch: Trailer For National Geographic’s LA 92 Offers Rare Look At 1992 LA Riots
The trailer for the gripping National Geographic documentary LA 92 has been released, marking the 25th anniversary of the LA riots.
The 1992 Los Angeles riots were a series of riots, lootings, arsons, and civil disturbances that occurred in Los Angeles County, California in April and May of 1992. The unrest began in South Central Los Angeles on April 29 after a trial jury acquitted four officers of the Los Angeles Police Department of the use of excessive force in the videotaped arrest and beating of Rodney King. It then spread throughout the Los Angeles metropolitan area as thousands of people rioted over a six-day period following the announcement of the verdict.
