April 29, 1992, Los Angeles erupts in violence after four police officers are found innocent for the brutal beating of Rodney King. For today’s 20th anniversary of the Los Angeles riots, a commemorative service will be held at Grand Olympic Auditorium. On Twitter, follow RealTimeLARiots for livetweeting as the 1992 riots as they happened. We’ve been working to compile the local and national media coverage commemorating the 1992 riots on Pinterest as all the great coverage would overwhelm Twitter and Tumblr feeds.  [This 1992 photo by Gary Leonard is from the Los Angeles Public Library archive. Should note that Gary Leonard is hosting an exhibit of his photos today (Sunday) at his gallery Take My Picture.]
