AbstractThis article discusses selected elements of structural violence-unneeded suffering or death resulting from preventable human actions and/or unfair treatment-as contributing factors to the civil disturbance in Los Angeles, California in April and May of 1992. It is argued that structural violence remains firmly and institutionally entrenched in the city and that little has been done to resolve: (1) access to economic opportunity, (2) inter-ethnic minority and majority tensions, (3) police-community conflicts, and (4) to revise government policies to address the needs of poor, ethnic minorities.
