You have good academic sources and introduction to the topic, but there could be more in-text citations so we know what info is from where. How are you thinking of organizing the article? By the days or something else? Klayk (talk) 17:36, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

I found your draft a little hard to read as there's no structure to your page. I'd like to see a separate references section, as well as a little more clarity on what your content is. Nicoleelkins (talk) 20:33, 22 October 2017 (UTC)

Fascinating topic; happy the Blackburn's (at least) made it out of town. The addition of headings and sub headings, as well citations is needed. A few additional sources would go along way to shore-up the requirement of meeting Wikipedia's notability standard. I would recommend doing another search on JSTOR or EBSCO for these sources, or check the library stacks. Goldsteinmj (talk) 21:16, 24 October 2017 (UTC)

The current structure makes it hard to read and, more specifically, to see where the article actually starts and where the reference list begins. I'm interested to see how you plan on structuring the article. In-text citations and references are missing, but I'm sure that those will be inserted in time for the final draft. I think that the diction and sentence-structure leads to some unnecessary repetition, which can rather easily be fixed. Being more specific with the names, if you can find them, of the mayor and sherif would make the introduction stronger. Overall, it's an interesting topic and I look forward to see how it develops.

Cerer- Peer ReviewEdit

I really like the subject. Just make sure to keep editing and add formatting like section headings. Also, making sure your sources are academic and have detail in them. This is a rough draft so obviously there is room for improvement. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jennifer.cerer (talkcontribs) 02:39, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

So far it's understandable and gives good information about the topic. It'll really take shape when you add in subheadings, continue working with your sources, and format your references. Bankstonad (talk) 21:43, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

NPR says sheriff did not die in the riotsEdit

The article says "The sheriff was fatally injured". According to the NPR source [1]: "Though no one died, some were seriously injured in the riots, including the sheriff" Can someone check the cited sources (especially the one cited in that section of the text, Henrickson) to help resolve the situation? ★NealMcB★ (talk) 23:17, 28 February 2020 (UTC)
