4. Deadly Riots – the Los Angeles Riot of 1992 (cont’d)

ANALYSIS

classification of participants – (from Turner and Killian)

ego-involved (the most personally ‘engaged’ and

  ‘invested’ in the outcome of the verdict)

concerned (not so invested, but possibly helpful to

  the rioters, generally supportive)

insecure (those just ‘along for the ride’ because they want

 to be part of it, but not really invested at all)

spectators (lots of these in the L.A. riots)

ego-detached exploiters (L.A. riots literally taken over by

 these – the looters, targets changed from authority symbols

 to businesses, and ransacking these)
