Armed guards and video cameras aren’t enough to suppress mob violence at public pool in Watts. It only took two days for a mob of 30 black youths to attack a lifeguard and other staff members.

The battle began when workers saw that the water had become so dirty, that they required everyone to get out to bring the water back to a safe level of cleanliness. The mob refused saying, “this is our pool,” and began assaulting people.

The pool has a history of violence. Youths from rival public housing projects battle for control of the pool. Workers are threatened or attacked whenever the pool is shut down for safety reasons.
