Los Angeles, CA: Remembering the L.A. Riots, 20 Years Later.

http://www.ktla.com/news/landing/ktla-la-riots-20-years-later,0,160252,full.story
———————————————————————————————————————

20 years later after the 1992 Los Angeles Riots, we need to continue to come together to stop the hate and violence that effect all people, unite together to fix our community, and stand together to project people’s rights.

We should never use hate, violence, looting, or destruction of property to fight for our causes because that don’t solve nothing but make things worse for our community as well as make the cause look bad.

Police should never abuse the badge and should stand up for the people if they as police officers see somebody abusing the badge; good cops arrest bad cops.

But as protesters or those who are upset at our justice system, we should never abuse the right to assemble with violence, looting, or destruction of property for that hurts other who had nothing to do with the real problem and it gives the cause a bad name.

We should never judge people as a label of hate; judging every police office as being racist or judging every African American person as being a gang member is hateful and wrong.

We need to use our anger and frustration to do good and not for bad; join a group that fights for people’s rights, organize to clean up your community, and help teach children that hate and violence is wrong and not the answer.

“You can’t get peace with violence,” said Arsenio Hall during an interview with KNBC NBC Channel 4 at the First A.M.E. Church during the 1992 Los Angeles Riots.

To all the groups and organizations that are working hard to protect people’s rights, to stop the hate and violence, and to help both the people and the community around them, Thank You So Much and Keep Up The Great Work.

Please Keep The Peace, Love, and Respect Alive Well Not Allowing Evil, Hate, and Violence Divide Us All.
