  • 2. P age |1 Synopsis of the Investigation The 1992 Los Angeles riots was sparked on April 29, 1992 when a mostly white jury acquitted four police officers accused inthe videotaped beating of black motorist Rodney King, after he fled from police. Thousands of people in Los Angeles joined in whathas often been characterized as a race riot, or a mini-civil war, involving acts of law-breaking compounded by existing racial tensions,including looting, arson and murder. In summary;  53 people died during the riots  4 thousand injured  12,000 people arrested  1,100 buildings destroyed  $1.4 billion in property damage Mer cyhur st C oll eg e Insti tute for Intellig ence Studi es
  • 3. P age |2 About this Report This report seeks to analyze the time, movement, behavior, target and offenders involved in the L.A. Riots. By utilizingMicrosoft Excel, Google Earth, i2 Analyst Notebook 8.5 and other tools, the analyst will report key facts and analytical findings fromthe provided dataset, which can be viewed at the end of this report. The raw data from the police reports was first categorized into columns in Microsoft Excel. After organizing the data, theanalyst went about creating pivot charts in Excel. After analyzing the data in Excel, the data was imported into Google Earth toanalyze the spatial movement of the crimes. Next, the analyst imported the geo data into geocommons to analyze any patterns in theoccurrences of the crimes. Lastly, the refined data was imported into i2 Analyst Notebook 8.5. The data was laid out into theme lines. All of the eventframes in i2 were given controlling times. The data was then analyzed with the heat matrix feature from i2. Most of the analyticalfindings were made using the heat matrix feature in i2 Analyst Notebook 8.5. James E. Gallagher Mer cyhur st C oll eg e Insti tute for Intellig ence Studi es

  • 6. About the L.A Riots P age |5 A total of 53 people lost their lives during the L.A Riot. In total, 26 African Americans, 17 Hispanics, 7WHO Caucasians, 2 Asians and 1 Middle Eastern lost their lives. Several law enforcement departments aside from L.A.P.D were involved. In addition, the National `Guard was brought in to assist. After Rodney King resisted arrest from Police officers, he was beaten. The beating was caught on film. The officers who took part in the beating were taken to court, but found not guilty. This WHAT resulted in an upheaval of the African American community. Violence spread out of the African community, and into the Hispanic areas of the city. Soon, the entire city was caught in the race riot. The first killing of the riot occurred on Wednesday 4/29/1992 at 1930 hours. The last killing WHEN occurred on Sunday 5/3/1992 at 1940 hours. The L.A. Riot took place over a five day period. 37 of the crimes (70%) took place in Los Angeles. 4 of the crimes (8%) took place in Compton. WHERE 2 crimes took place in East Hollywood. 10 other cities each experienced one crime. Most of the crimes were black on black or Hispanic on black. 37 of the crimes (68%) were carried outHow with a firearm. In 5 of the crimes (9%), a vehicle was used. In 5 other crimes (9%), fire was the causes of death. 4 of the crimes were carried out with a blunt object/blunt force trauma. Mer cyhur st C oll eg e Insti tute for Intellig ence Studi es

However, 70% of the crimes took place in downtown L.A.The following maps in the report are plotted with the locations of the crime. The maps are then layered with demographic date fromthe 1990 census. Race and poverty layers were layered into Google Earth to analyze the locations of the deaths in correlation withpatterns from the layers. The tolls used for analyzing the geo data are Google Earth, Geocommons and Social Explorer. The legendsfor all the maps are below. The circles are the location of the crime.

On the top of the event frames there is a time bar. The black arrow on the time bar shows the date and time that theincident in the event frame occurred. A blue arrow would indicate that two or more events occurred at that certain time. To read theevent frames in correct chronological order, follow the event frames across the page on to the next one, and then restart at the bottomof the previous page. 1 2 Follow these steps to correctly read the theme lines. You can also follow the time bar as a guide to know where in you in the dataset. 3 4 Mer cyhur st C oll eg e Insti tute for Intellig ence Studi es

Inaddition, the analyst can play their link chart like a movie to analyze patterns in a certain sequence of events. The heat matrix chartsprovided in this report analyze race, MOS, age, hour and day of the week. The x-axis on all of the heat matrix charts in this reportcontain only date and time. The y-axis is the only data set that changes from chart to chart. Note: All of the bar graphs in the chartsare in two hour intervals.
