Yesterday marked the 22nd anniversary of the L.A. Riots/Rodney King verdict. In 1992, thousands of young African-Americans stormed to the streets of L.A. after the police officers who were involved in beating of King were found innocent of all charges. Shortly after, liquor stores, chain stores and white people became targets of looting, fire and violence. The verdict was so powerful that protest, violence and riots also broke out in other cities, including Atlanta. So where were you when this all took place?
