Members of the Congressional Black Caucus held the first of two news conferences to discuss the outcome of the trial in Los Angeles of four white police officers charged with beating a black suspect. Following the not guilty verdict for the officers, riots broke out in Los Angeles in protest of the verdict. The case received national attention when a videotape of the suspect’s arrest and apparent beating was aired in the national media. Rep. Maxine Waters, in whose Los Angeles district erupted some of the worst of the unrest, said the verdict was unfair and a miscarriage of justice. Several other members expressed their feelings on the outcome of the case, and responded to questions from reporters on the trial’s outcome. close
