On April 4, 1968 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Seven days of riots were spurred by shock and disbelief that the man who utilized non-violence to fight for justice had become a victim of violence himself. In those seven days more than 100 businesses had been vandalized or looted, demonstrators had set 505 arson fires, 36 people were injured, and there was one person dead. That death was of a 72 year old woman named Mary Amplo. Mary had been inside her home when 5 men showed up throwing Molotov cocktails into her home. This is the story of the capture of Leonard Rayne Moses.
