National Guard during Los Angeles Riots of 1992

The LA Riots began on April 29, 1992, after a jury found four police men caught in the act of beating an African American (Rodney King) not guilty. Violence claimed the city and the Rafu Shimpo office closed for the day to ensure the safety of its workers. The riots mainly graced Little Korea, leaving the Rafu Shimpo, for the most part, untouched and unharmed.
