Interview with Otis Pitts
QUESTION 20
MADISON DAVIS LACY:

Do you think that played a role in that riot?

OTIS PITTS:

I think, I think it does. I mean I think you find youngsters very frustrated by not feeling a part of the system as such, not being able to realize their aspirations. I mean these youngsters need that money, I mean just to buy school clothes, go back to school next year. So, it's not just some little extra job they're doing just to occupy themselves in the summer. That money often-times helped to, to sustain the family. I mean it would actually put meat on the table as such. So, it had a very real role I mean in, in, in the sustenance of those families.
