Photo equipment retailer Samy Kamienowicz contemplates two pictures on his desk. One shows a vivid color view of Samy's Camera in flames; the other, the smoky ruins of his mid-Wilshire store. On the second day of the Los Angeles riots, a few men with nice cars and machine guns broke into the Beverly Boulevard store, the largest photo supply house in the West. They took what they wanted and set the business on fire, witnesses said, warning neighbors not to interfere.
