President Bush toured a south central Los Angeles neighborhood during a visit to the city one week after riots raged through the area resulting in several deaths, hundreds of injuries and millions of dollars in property damage. The riots occurred after the acquittal of four white police officers charged with beating a black suspect during an arrest that was captured on videotape by a Los Angeles resident. President Bush met with civil rights leaders to discuss the situation in Los Angeles at the Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church. He said justice would prevail in the situation, and federal aid to the city will be provided in a timely manner. He stated his visit was not political. close
