    While this documentary is very good the issues, pain, frustration and racial polarization that led to the LA Riots had their genesis in the Watts Riots many years earlier. Most of the issues of poverty, joblessness, gang violence that were present when the Watts Riots took place were still present more than two decades later. The other key factor in the LA Riots was the LAPD which remains a highly troubled organization. From the Ramparts Division scandal to the documented abuses of authority in the 77th Division, the Watts Riots and the militarization of the LAPD that followed those riots are key issues not explored in this film. Remember, no police department in America had numbers on tops of cars, buildings or black uniforms until the LAPD post Watts riots. The riots and the direction of the department afterward changed the department's relationships with communities forever, as did white flight from the inner city. I know, I lived through it!
