Bill Clinton, candidate for the 1992 Democratic presidential nomination, held a news conference in his home state to discuss the verdict in the trial of four white Los Angeles police officers charged with beating a black suspect. Riots erupted in Los Angeles and other cities around the nation after the police officers received a “not guilty” verdict; the case received national attention after a Los Angeles resident videotaped the arrest. Gov. Clinton called for reconciliation across the country, and supported the president’s movements to provide security to keep the peace in Los Angeles. He stated he would not criticize the record of the Bush administration until the process of reconciliation was started in California and across the country. close
