Scary.......think people have learned yet?

Burning neighborhoods where you live and then coming back later and finding so much destruction.

They wont replace burnt out buildings. Look at L.A, its still got block and blocks of empty spaces from the Rodney King riots.....Jane

"How can we understand riots
by the people
for the people
who are only destroying themselves?"

I had a summer job downtown at the Greyhound terminal unloading buses. Every day during the riot, I had to drive downtown on the Ford and Chrysler and had those roads to myself. A grocery store along the Chrysler was burning on one trip. Girls were running over the pedestrian overpass with shopping carts to do some last minute shopping.

Many of the incoming buses were canceled. Those that came in were nearly empty. At night, with no work to do, Greyhound employees sat outside the terminal door watching the police cars, army trucks, and a few taxis. A block from the terminal, at about 4am, a double amputee on sort of a big skateboard scooted along propelling himself with his hands. Very surreal.

Fifteen of us were laid off after the riot as no one wanted to visit Detroit. I got a job on the SS South America three days later and went to Expo in Montreal.

Great tale Oladub.

A barber whose shop I'd visited in Duluth, MN was a young crewman on the SS South America.

He was visiting the home of a fellow crewman who lived in the city while the ship was in port during the riot.

They were both scared and thrilled as they snaked their way from the east side back to the docks unscathed.

"I'll always remember that summer job!"

What did you do on the ship?

Bulletmagnet-

During the riot in L.A. regarding the Rodney King verdict, I asked a black man in Detroit how come Detroit wasn't rioting. This man answered, "I don't want to destroy everything that I own". I think that it has come to this. But, I am sure that if some incident that is particularly unjustifiable happens here, you will hear some noise. It has been proven that blacks don't take no shorts....so to speak.
