20 year anniversary of Los Angeles Rodney King riots (news footage)

Can't believe it's been 20 years.  Thankfully, racially tensions have been virtually eliminated as a result of the invention of Xbox 360, text messaging, and Youtube.  Opiates for the masses!

This clip from the second day of the rioting is also interesting because of the local newscasters.  I grew up watching channel 4 news.  It amazes me that 20 years later, they are still on the air, and thanks to plastic surgery, they still look the same.

The male anchor, Keith Morrison, is Matthew Perry's (Chandler Bing of Friends) step-dad.  The buff blond out in the field is Rick Chambers.  Whenever there is a disaster (earthquake, riot, fire), he is out there, baring his ginormous biceps in front of the camera.
