LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Thirty years ago, Los Angeles erupted in anger after four LAPD officers were found not guilty of the brutal beating of Rodney King after a high-speed chase.
Fury over the acquittals quickly spilled onto the streets, leading to five days of civil unrest - looting, killings and thousands of fires that left parts of Los Angeles looking more like a war zone.
The events of 1992 ignited a national conversation about racial and economic injustice and police use of force that continues today.
We explore the impact of the unrest through the people behind the largest civil disturbance in American history and examine if changes since then to policing have been enough.
