Los Angeles, Part 2

Scott Simon considers the sharp divide in Los Angeles between rich and poor. He then visits a Korean-American liquor store owner, just north of Watts. Fires and looting closed many liquor stores in 1992. Government and community efforts have attempted to convert many of those liquor stores into different kinds of businesses. Scott also looks at efforts of the Los Angeles Police Department to become more community friendly.
