The LAPD In The Wake Of Rodney King

Jun 2, 2015

Unrest in Los Angeles in 1992 after the acquittals of the officers charged in the alleged assault of Rodney King.

What reforms did the Los Angeles Police Department enact after the Rodney King beating and riots of 1992? Did these reforms manage to decrease complaints of police brutality? We’ll hear from Joe Domanick, associate director of the Center on Media, Crime and Justice at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and author of the forthcoming book, “Blue: The LAPD and the Battle to Redeem American Policing,” on how the LAPD has changed and what the Baltimore police department may be able to glean from their choices.
