A Taste of Simi Valley, California

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT SIMI VALLEY?
  1. Simi Valley is a city located in the valley of the same name, Simi Valley, in the southeast corner of Ventura County, California, United States. It is part of the Greater Los Angeles Area. The city is adjacent to Thousand Oaks, Moorpark and unincorporated places in the San Fernando Valley. Simi Valley is 30 miles from the radial area of Downtown Los Angeles and 3 miles from the Los Angeles neighborhood of Chatsworth. According to the United States Bureau of the Census, the city had a population of 126,874 in 2012, up from 111,351 in 2000.

  2. A study done by the University of Vermont ranked Simi Valley as the fifth-happiest city in the United States.

  3. Rodney King trial  - On November 27, 1991, Judge Stanley Weisberg of the California Court of Appeals selected Simi Valley as the venue for the state case against four officers of the Los Angeles Police Department. The officers (Stacey Koon, Laurence Powell, Timothy Wind, and Theodore Brisenio) were accused of using unnecessary force in a March 3, 1991 beating of an African-American motorist "Rodney" Glen King. The case known as the Rodney King Trials was based on footage recorded on home video by a bystander (George Holliday). The now-famous video was broadcast nationally and globally and caused tremendous response because the beating was believed to be racially motivated. Selecting Simi Valley as a venue for the trial is believed to be motivated by the predominantly white ethnic make-up of the city at the time.

  4. On April 29, 1992, a Ventura County jury acquitted three of the four officers (Koon, Wind, and Brisenio) and did not reach a verdict on one (Powell). Many believed that the unexpected outcome was a result of the racial and social make-up of the jury, which, reflecting the area's population demographic, included ten whites, one Filipino, and one Hispanic. None were Simi Valley residents. Among the jury were three who had been security guards or in military service. The acquittal led to the 1992 Los Angeles riots and mass protest around the country.
