Friday, March 11, 2016 Kevy Chea Sociology 148 Video: “Outcry L.A.” In the video, “Outcry L.A.”, it showed the response of the people in regards to the verdict of the Rodney King case. The Rodney King case was a court case about the police brutality, especially towards African Americans. Shown in the video was the outrage of the final verdict and the people’s response was to begin rioting, expressing their anger indifferently, ultimately tearing down the city of L.A. Although the negative responses were generally from the African Americans and on the unfairness of it all because of the lack of respect given to them, they were not the only ones partaking in the activity. People of all races and backgrounds joined in on the riot. Businesses were ruined, and many of the citizens of L.A. found that they could no longer live there. It was all so chaotic that even the police department partook very little in settling the riot. Eventually they just let it happen until it died down, 6 whole days later. The rioters no longer knew what they were rioting for. Damages were done in every aspect; emotionally, physically, mentally and more. According to the article, “The Roots of Conflict in LA: The Real Story,” the issue stemmed long before the events that happened to Rodney King. The issues stemmed from the strain felt by the racism of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). The article expresses thoughts, concerns and feelings from people of different ethnic backgrounds towards the LAPD.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
