Actually the Koreans in LA were far more orginized then everyone thought. My friends tell me that the Asians are spending great deals of money of weapons training, to this day.
Back to Korea town, AARs went thru the police community after the riots. I was particularly impressed with the Koreans in Korea town, in LA. If you will note, in ALL the pictures these folks are wearing headbands, white shirts and dark pants ” uniforms” we’re intentional, everybody looked the same, no oppertunity to identify an individual.
The Koreans shot the poop out of the area, initially. In the pictures, you,will observe papasan, or an,older gentleman directing every side of the building. You will see food water and ammo stocked in the center, and you will see younger girls aroumd the stock pile. Those ladies were logistics. They kept the shooters in food water and ammo.
You will also see a quiet corner with a table and medical supplies, their own EMS was set up, or centralized between a couple different buildings.
We learned that during the riots, mamasans, would, when safe come forward police the empty brass, and reload mags with the young ladies.
When the battle was over all the men returned their weapons to a universal armory, along with mags anything that might get them busted. They changed cloths before exiting, under mamasans direction.
All the uniforms were collected and left the building with the mamasans. The roof tops were sanitized multiple times, in case the police came to,collect evidence. In one report, officer reported smelling strong odors of bleach on the roof tops and stairwells leading up/down.
All in all pretty darned slick operation. Far more orginized then everybody else playing .
Most of the cops were tinkled, I was favorably amused, and openly Aplauded the Koreans taking care of business.
Their actions give merit to the old saying, an armed society is a polite society. They held their turf, allowing the police to,focus on the real issues, of bad guys. Eventually the guys on my shift came to a similar conclusion as mine. The Koreans were allies, not the bad guys. They simple defended their livelihood.
Thos stores are their livelihood, all they have. I’m told it’s rare that they put money in a bank, and most only deal in cash. Smart people in my opinion
To this day their example is one we intend to,follow in some loose order.
Thank you for the account. I wonder how many “groups” will hold up like the Koreans? Or will they lack the ties and discipline an ethnic and distinguishable group has? I wonder if any of these survivalist groups will do any better than the average Joe, once they are past talk and play. Sure hope everyone gets home! It is a long ways across Texas and that Boarder Wall might pose a minor problem, with all the people headed South. Swamp
