TV Station Is Live Tweeting Rodney King Riots 20 Years After The Trial
WTH?

Posted on April 25, 2012

Twenty years ago, a Southern California jury was weighing the fates of four police officers accused of brutally beating black motorist Rodney King after a traffic stop. Their subsequent acquittal touched off several days of race riots in Los Angeles that left 55 people dead, 2,300 injured and 1,500 buildings damaged or destroyed.

In marking two decades since Los Angeles burned, local television news station KNBC-TV is putting a new media spin on things, live-tweeting events as they happened in 1992.

The Twitter account @RealTimeLARiots kicked off April 20, chronicling the end of the trial of the four officers — three white, one Hispanic — accused of beating King.

“On April 29 at 3:15 p.m., the verdict will be announced and the account will shift focus to the riots, complete with archive footage, photos and breaking news from around Los Angeles,” KNBC explained. “Each @RealTimeLARiots tweet corresponds to the actual date and time (sometimes down to the minute) of each major event as it unfolded back in 1992.”

Here’s a sample of what the account has produced so far:

I think it was Sunday, CNN had a big special on the 20 year anniversary and had him on, so he's on a big ole media tour right now.

Looks like he has been buy becoming an outstanding citizen..
"In 2004, he pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of the drug PCP
after he lost control of his SUV in 2003 and slammed into a power pole in Rialto.
And in 2005, he was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence."

I agree OP, this is being used to add fuel to the Trayvon fire. I saw it on CNN this morning, and now Dr. Drew is holding an exclusive interview with Rodney King tonight. Why can't these media people stop stoking the flames? We are already having enough backlash from racial problems, mostly instigated by media. This will not end well.

something or other about the 20th anniversary of the riots is on every channel here - lots of mentions of it on the news, commercials for upcoming specials on riots etc. And of course just in time, all the race baiters and trayvon martin's parents show up in LA

I'd imagine that he's about to release a book, "ghostwritten" (or "as told to") someone who can actually read and write. IMHO it's ALWAYS been about the money.

Just like Trayvon's Mom, who copyrighted his name and the phrase "Justice For Trayvon" so she could sell T-shirts and bumper stickers. Kinda puts a damper on any sympathy I might have felt for her and his Father, who turned off his phone so he could boink his girlfriend uninterrupted and who waited three days before he started looking for his missing son.
"I have come to the conclusion that all news should be treated like 9/11, assume it is a psyop with actors participating in a staged event complete with props, until proven otherwise, in which case assume whatever is being recorded, reported, televised, is distortions/lying by omission/outright lies, until proven otherwise." - Anonymous, 4-13-12
