EBT card users are threatening to stage Rodney King-style riots in Los Angeles if the electronic food stamp system crashes again, following Saturday’s failure which prompted looting at several Walmart stores.
An EBT card user interviewed in the video above (2 minutes 30) comments, “They better resolve something because if it stays like this there’s gonna be an uproar in the city of L.A.” When the man is asked to clarify, he respond, “A Rodney King baby!”
The man is referring to the 1992 L.A. riots, spurred by the Rodney King beating, which resulted in 53 deaths, 2,000 injuries and over $1 billion dollars in property damages.
Several Walmart stores suffered looting and “mini-riots” following Saturday’s EBT card shutoff, which was caused after a routine check by vendor Xerox Corp. resulted in a system failure.
