There is this video of the riots with MMA referee Big John McCarthy, then a police officer.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yafe9YBLv8

I was 12 yrs old in Chenney Washington. I remember watching this on TV and my parents got worried because Seattle started getting rough also and we had some friends over there.

My records only go back to 1996...and my memory in a constructed capacity only goes back to 1993...however, I can make an educated guess.

it was about two weeks after easter, so it would have been the middle of the first week back at junior school for me. I was in Mr Douglass class at Manor Lease...I cant really say for certain anymore then that...I was only about 11 years old

I was fresh out of college and watching this mess on TV, then we had copy cat riots in the next town over. Ridiculous.

"A man was beaten unfairly so I'm stealing a TV" seemed to be the general mindset.

I thought that was pretty stupid. Go burn down the neighborhoods of the people you're mad at, not your own!
