I was in junior high watching the looting on TV. Some of the kids in my class recognized some of the looters.
After the Donovan Jackson/Jeremy Morse ordeal last year I was on high alert. Nothing happened. Whew.

I wonder how effective the bags-o-rice 'sandbags' were? Gives new meaning to the term "eat lead".:D

I was there tryin to keep the peace, it was a riot, anyway, try a search for a stock photo service on the net. They often have a good selection. Otherwise try the LA Times newspaper, they may sell photos from past issues.
Best to all, John K

I was there, locked behind my front door looking out my window at the nextdoor neighbors pulling into the driveway with 8 shiney new mattresses tied to the top of their lowrider. No BS.
Gotta love it, the "disadvantaged" looting and burning shops owned by their own people. Maybe some day I'll understand.....

I wasn't there but watched the news. It convinced me to buy a shotgun. I will never live with people like that. :mad:

I'm arguing with some liberals on another board who think that AKs and ARs should be banned since supposedly they are no good for self-defense. :banghead:
Would be nice to find a photo on the net somwhere of one of those Korean merchants up on the roof of his store with his AR.
Oh well, I figure if I am polite and patient enough....there's always hope.
Thanks, now if I can just find one where the Korean is holding an AR or AK.....
(or maybe get out my Photoshop...) ;)

at the time there were a few photos of the Korean Merchants Association (or whatever it was called) having folks on the roof with AR's and such, but that's at least 4 or 5 computers ago and I didn't keep them...see if the KMA might provide you with some?

YouTube Video of LA riot news report about armed Korean shopkeepers. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKTw-UHalZc)
Another one detailing a number of Korean shop owners who are on the roof of a store. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=quNEzN0_toc)
YouTube seems to have a number of copies of archived news reports about the riots.
