LA has seen racial uprisings, many not shocked by new round

The outcome outraged a community that watched video of King being beaten with police batons, shot with stun guns and stomped on.By the time order was restored, rioting had spread across much of LA for five days, leaving more than 60 people dead, over 2,300 injured and $1 billion in property damage. Smoke enveloped the city after hundreds of buildings burned to the ground.The losses are far higher than in protests over Floyd’s killing that have swept the nation for days, devolving into people setting buildings and police cars on fire, smashing their way into stores and hurling rocks and bottles at officers. Police have responded with tear gas, rubber bullets and thousands of arrests, many of them in LA.Kerman Maddox was a young radio reporter who lived just a block from one of the flashpoints in the 1992 riots.“I had a chance to see a lot and observe a lot, and I was hoping I would never see that again,” said Maddox, who is black.But he also thought he’d never see another video recorded by a bystander as violent as the one of King’s beating, Maddox said. Not until he watched footage of white Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin pressing a knee into Floyd’s neck for several minutes even after he stopped moving and pleading for air.“I still have a hard time seeing that,” said Maddox, who’s a public affairs consultant.He said the chaotic protests it triggered did not entirely surprise him, soon after white men were arrested in May in the February killing of black Georgia jogger Ahmaud Arbery and other incidents.“The problem is this is 2020, Rodney King happened almost 30 years ago and a lot of people see this stuff is still going on,” Maddox said. “You’re upset, and you’re angry, and you’re perplexed because you’re trying to figure out what do we have to do for this to end.”To see Los Angeles erupt in chaos for the second time in her life has been devastating, says Aurea Montes-Rodriguez, executive vice president of the Community Coalition South Los Angeles. As a high school student, she had to walk past burning buildings and looters after her school abruptly suspended bus service during the 1992 riots. The experience inspired her to dedicate her career to public service after earning a master’s degree from the University of California, Los Angeles.“I felt that what I was seeing on TV the first night and when I walked through the fires the second day was a civil unrest by people who were fed up believing that the legal system, that the justice system, was going to work for our community,” she said on the 25th anniversary of the King riots in 2017.That’s still the problem, she said Sunday, not only in Los Angeles but in other U.S. cities.“I’m deeply concerned and heartbroken that this is happening in our city, and worse, that it’s happening in different parts of the country because our elected officials refuse to hear or see the devastation that families are hearing and experiencing,” Montes-Rodriguez said.Civil rights scholar Jody Armour has noticed that people of color now protesting are often joined by white people, something he didn’t see during the 1992 uprising.That could be an indication, he says, that more white people, realizing black people were not exaggerating when they spoke of the dangers of driving or walking while black, have begun to develop an empathy and to stand with African Americans against oppression.“Racial discrimination today isn’t the old KKK racism, but racism of indifference,” says Armour, a black University of Southern California professor who has written and lectured on racial justice, criminal justice and the rule of law. “You’re not motivated by racial animus or spite, you just don’t feel the pain of the out-group members as you do for your in-group members.”Still, he cautioned real change has never been easy and is often violent, from the Civil War to the 1960s civil rights movement.That it has taken this long to get to that point is especially frustrating to Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn, who was 13 when the Watts riots erupted near her home in 1965 after white officers got into a scuffle with a drunken driving suspect in the city’s racially segregated Watts neighborhood. More than 30 people were killed.While there were substantial efforts to rebuild communities after both uprisings, she said Sunday that it’s clear that “despite what we have done, what has still not changed is the systemic racism that we’re seeing across the country as it relates to the interaction between law enforcement and unarmed black men.”She said she’s encouraged that several police chiefs have spoken out against Floyd’s death. In New Jersey, for instance, Camden County Police Chief Joe Wysocki joined protesters in a march.“I think that’s where it has to start, we have to reform throughout this country our police departments,” said Hahn, who is white and whose late father, Kenneth Hahn, was a revered figure in the largely black community he represented on the county Board of Supervisors for 40 years.“I’m 68 years old,” she said ruefully. “My hope is to see in my lifetime a real change. So that I don’t go through one of these again.”Tags :george floydproperty damageprotestsracismshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentSanta Monicans clean up after looters hit downtown storesWhat’s the Point? – Shining lights on a dark nightYou Might Also LikeCrimeCRIME WATCHNewsCrime WatchGuest Author2 days agoCrimeFeaturedKnife-wielding woman arrested during L.A.

Hetmyer fails to score on IPL debut

first_imgCHENNAI, India, CMC – West Indies batting star Shimron Hetmyer made a wretched start to life in the Indian Premier League here yesterday when he made a two-ball ‘duck’ as his Royal Challengers Bangalore crashed to a seven-wicket defeat to Chennai Super Kings in the season-opener. Entering at the fall of South African AB de Villiers’s wicket at 38 for three in the eighth over, the 22-year-old Hetmyer was nearly run at the striker’s end before facing a ball, after being called through for a sharp leg bye by Parthiv Patel.The left-hander then blocked the first ball he received from veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh but then pushed the next delivery to short cover and set off for an impossible run, and was beyond the point of no return when the bails were removed.Hetmyer was picked up by RCB for US$596 000 in last December’s draft, one of several West Indies players along with Carlos Brathwaite, Nicholas Pooran and Oshane Thomas, to land lucrative contracts. Playing at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, RCB were dismissed for 70 in the 18th over to record the sixth lowest total in IPL history, with South African leg-spinner Imran Tahir (3-9) and Harbhajan (3-20) finishing with three wickets apiece.Only Patel, with 29 off 35 balls, reached double figures before he was last out, holing out to square leg off former West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo.In reply, CSK made a meal of their run chase before getting home with 14 balls to spare, with opener Ambati Rayudu top-scoring with 28.last_img read more

Wind change sees Bali flights cancelled

first_imgMount Agung . Jetstar and Qantas have canceled all flights from Bali this afternoon because of new information on the movement of the volcanic ash cloud.Both airlines had been in a race against forecast wind changes and the imminent explosive eruption of Mount Agung to clear passengers stranded on the holiday island.The two airlines will still operate 11 rescue flights this morning and early afternoon.Neither airline is taking passengers to Bali.However, Virgin Australia is continuing to operate rescue flights.Read: Bali passengers may be able to seek refund.More tremors occurred yesterday and overnight and the time between them is decreasing while their strength is increasing according to the Indonesian seismic reports.A major escalation of the eruption is expected at any time.However, there has been a significant reduction in the amount of ash coming from Mount Agung prompting some officials to comment that the eruption may be over.But on Twitter, noted volcanologist Dr Janine Krippner said that “this does not mean it is over.“Fluctuations in activity are a normal part of the life of volcanoes,” Dr Krippner said.Indonesia’s Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation Centre also warned that a more violent eruption remains likely.Devy Kamil Syahbana, of the PVMBG, told Reuters: “We cannot predict whether it will be bigger than 1963, but according to our evaluation the potential for a full-scale eruption is still high.”In 1963, the Mt Agung eruption killed more than 1600 and lasted over a year.last_img read more

Syracuse Basketball: Syracuse Commits And Their Parents Approve Of Putting Duke Gear In The Trash

first_imgJim Boeheim applauds his team.SYRACUSE, NY – FEBRUARY 22: Head coach Jim Boeheim of the Syracuse Orange applauds his team’s efforts during the game against the Duke Blue Devils on February 22, 2017 at The Carrier Dome in Syracuse, New York. Syracuse upsets Duke 78-75. (Photo by Brett Carlsen/Getty Images)Since joining the ACC, Syracuse and Duke have sparked a pretty intense rivalry.
