The Blotter Presents 006: Burn Motherf*cker Burn And LA 92

TV's got tons of content looking back at the L.A. riots in 1992; John Ramos joined Sarah D. Bunting for a closer look at two documentaries.

A lot of networks have special-event programming commemorating the 25th "anniversary" of the post-Rodney-King-verdict uprising; Sarah D. Bunting guessed Showtime's and NatGeo's entries looked good. And she guessed right; Burn Motherf*cker, Burn and LA 92 complement each other and dig deep into the history of racial conflict in the City of Angels -- but don't feel like homework. Documentarian and recent-ish Angeleno John Ramos discussed music cues, cringey contemporary interviews, and Danny Bakewell Sr.'s way with words (and rings).
