At the time of the riots I was living in Ridgecrest, California, about two hours north of Los Angeles. I remember one announcer (not sure if he was in a chopper or a studio) who called the rioters “animals”. He was ripped by the liberal media, but I agreed with him.
Maxine “racist firebug” Waters described the riots as a rebellion. That woman is responsible for at least some of the deaths. She was quite capable of speaking out but unwilling to take that high road. There is blood on her thieving hands.
