Writer and filmmaker RH Greene.

In 1992, writer, documentarian, filmmaker, and Off-Ramp contributor R. H. Greene was working as an essayist for a now-defuct weekly newspaper called the LA Village View. He spent the night of the riots alone and cut off in his apartment in Hollywood, watching the horror unspool on TV, and trying hard to figure out what it all meant. The resultant essay is a kind of a prose poem called "Los Angeles Year Zero."
