15 years ago, part 4: "Peace Treaty" – Kam
So, what became of all this ? Well, after things in the hood had died down, and people realized “You know what ? We fucked our own hood up…”, the healing began. First thing that happened, was it stopped being referred to as “rioting” or “looting”, but became “civil unrest”. Community leaders put forth an effort to rebuild the communities, and even the Bloods & Crips came to a common agreement that they would end their feuding. It seemed like a new day was upon Los Angeles. It didn’t last long…after a few months of bbq’s and parties at the park, niggas started busting on each other with regularity again, a trend that continues today. Those buildings that were supposed to replace the gutted out ones that went down…still haven’t gone back up yet. It’s been 15 years, and I can drive you around L.A. and show you lots that are STILL vacant. Are B’s & C’s still dropping each other like bad habits ? Yep. Every chance they get. Is the L.A.P.D. still as corrupt as ever ? Yes they are…google some of the shit they’ve been up to. So, what has really changed in the past 15 years ? Nothing, in my opinion.
