Did the Los Santos Riots occur in the HD universe?

Title. I could be forgetful but I don't recall any direct references.

I don't know of any references either. But since it's based on real life events that happened in Los Angeles and HD Los Santos is also based on Los Angeles I guess it's likely they did.

That's my guess as well. Rockstar's real hard on realism in the HD universe, they even went so far as to canonize something like 9/11. (The GTA V fire trucks have FDLC ribbons on them), so I'd assume they happened. Just looking for a little discussion is all.

Yes and there's lots of references to recent-ish terrorism/the threat of terrorism in Liberty City in IV without directly mentioning it. I think even though the riots aren't directly referenced in V (as far as I know) there's still things like the police being particularly aggressive and with the motto "Obey and Survive". The culture of LS reflects the culture of LA in a way where we can assume a pivotal event like that would've happened there as well.

Naturally, but I'm not sure where, as the city is so small.
