historicdtla For more than two weeks in the spring of 1992, Los Angeles would be known as the city in smokes; or described as The Los Angeles Uprising.

Riots erupted after a police brutality trial in which a jury acquitted Los Angeles Police Department officers Stacey Koon, Theodore Briseno, Timothy Wind and Laurence Powell on charges of excessive use of force against Rodney King.

People around the city didnt notice anything until they saw fumes and smoke upwards into the sky. Thats when people went into panic mode..

We are sharing with you guys a before and after segment as we usually try to do with old DLTA but this is a bit different considering the atmosphere of events. The ruins of that gutted building, like so many destroyed by rioters, became a vacant lot that dragged down the corner of Albany and Olympic for years. Finally, in 2005, the dreary lot became home to a crisp, clean Los Angeles Unified School District elementary school, the Olympic Primary Center.

After the riots, Pico-Union couldn't rebound. About a decade later, new apartment complexes finally appeared, followed by the new school. In the adjacent downtown area, on the other side of the 110 freeway, a 5-star Ritz-Carlton hotel opened in 2010 at the L.A. Live complex.

Where were you during the Riots?

  •   tonedknee I was in Hawthorne watching Married with children then The Simpsons came on... Just another day,except more crime on the streets 1d
  •   gestelal I remember this all too well... Not a proud time for LA 1d
  •   jose_from_la I was living in Inglewood, CA, about 7 miles West of Florence & Normandie were it all began. My Mom was watching the Spanish News on Telemundo or Unvision TV when they started reporting the LA Riots live from a Helicopter over Florence and Normandie, we watched Reginald Dennie get pulled out of his truck and get his head smashed by a brick, and other innocent motorist driving thru the intersection get bombarded with bricks, rocks, & bottles. This went on for hours. I don't know why the Emergency Broadcast System was not used to warn everybody on the radio to avoid that intersection. That could have saved many people from injuries and damages. 1d
  •   g_star_la I was in High School at the time living in Glassell Park. I remember the hazy couple of days, the smell of a city on fire, and the snowy ashes falling from the sky. I remember it like it was yesterday. 1d
  •   southerncali_562 I was 8 years old living in the projects in Watts. I remember a lot of the neighbor heading out to loot. It was really crazy, I remember watching fire ashes all over the place. There was dusk to dawn curfew, and I also remember the national guard around they where the ones enforcing the curfew, I remember very well peeking outside my window and just see them posted at various spots with their weapons on hand 1d
