Josie Morales narrates her story on how she prepared herself to be a witness in the trials, and how she did her part in making sure that she got called for the trial. She did not become a witness to the trials, however. Her story seems to imply that there is foul play going on. Is there anything in the book that also reeks of foul play? Is there enough evidence, or statements, from the book to conclude that, indeed, Rodney King's trial is full of foul play? Cite specific examples/statements from the story to support the answer.
A young female student from the University of California describes her ordeal at the time the riots broke. She describes how fearful she was for her safety and ironically, she discussed how fearful she was for her father's car. What can be deduced about this young student's personality based on the thoughts that are running through her head? Paint a profile of this young student and her position on racism. Specify which instances and statements illustrate her personality.
"Choke holds" was a topic that was discussed in the story. One of the theories offered that cases against police officers would increase because of choke holds being eliminated, which would then result in uncontrolled violence among police officers. Is this theory valid? Does it say, then, that the police cannot determine for themselves what is acceptable and what is considered abusive? Are choke holds a limitation, or an opportunity/justification for violence?
