The "jury in Los Angeles" that Tate refers to at the very beginning of the episode is from the infamous trial in which four white L.A. police officers were acquitted of beating Rodney King. The verdict was handed down five months before this episode first aired and resulted in citywide riots that left more than 50 people dead.
The episode is based on a number of high-profile assassinations over the years, including:
- The assassination of Malcolm X, (born Malcolm Little), he was assassinated on February 21, 1965, at the age of 39. He was about to address his followers in New York when 3 gunman (Thomas Hagan, Norman Butler and Thomas Johnson) rushed the stage and fired at him. Hagan was beaten by the crowd, whilst Butler and Johnson were eventually found by the police. All three were convicted of murder in March 1966 and sentenced to life in prison.
- The assassination of Martin Luther King, who was killed on April 4, 1968 by James Earl Ray. King was 39 and left behind a widow and four children. Ray was a fugitive from the Missouri State Penitentiary, he was eventually arrested on June 8, 1968, in London at Heathrow Airport and extradited to the United States, to be charged with the crime. On March 10, 1969, he entered a plea of guilty and was sentenced to 99 years in the Tennessee State Penitentiary. He later made many attempts to withdraw his guilty plea and be tried by a jury, but was unsuccessful; he died in prison on April 23, 1998, at the age of 70.
- The assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, who was killed on Friday, November 22, 1963, at 12:30 p.m. Central Standard Time in Dallas, Texas, while riding in a presidential motorcade through Dealey Plaza. Kennedy was riding with his wife Jacqueline, Texas Governor John Connally, and Connally's wife Nellie when he was fatally shot by former U.S. Marine Lee Harvey Oswald firing in ambush from a nearby building. Governor Connally was seriously wounded in the attack. The motorcade rushed to Parkland Memorial Hospital where President Kennedy was pronounced dead about thirty minutes after the shooting; Connally recovered from his injuries. Oswald was arrested by the Dallas Police Department 70 minutes after the initial shooting. Oswald was charged under Texas state law with the murder of Kennedy as well as that of Dallas policeman J. D. Tippit, who had been fatally shot a short time after the assassination. At 11:21 a.m. Sunday, November 24, 1963, as live television cameras covered his transfer to the Dallas County Jail, Oswald was fatally shot in the basement of Dallas Police Headquarters by Dallas nightclub operator Jack Ruby. Oswald was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital where he soon died. Ruby was convicted of Oswald's murder, though it was later overturned on appeal, and Ruby died in prison in 1967 while awaiting a new trial.
- The assassination of Robert Francis "Bobby" Kennedy, a 42-year-old junior Senator from New York and a presidential candidate. On June 5, 1968, Kennedy won dual victories in the California and South Dakota primary elections for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States for the 1968 election. Senator Kennedy spoke to journalists and campaign workers at a live televised celebration from the stage of his headquarters at the Ambassador Hotel. Shorty after midnight Pacific Daylight Time at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles he left the podium and exited through the kitchen hallway, where he was mortally wounded by multiple shots fired from a handgun. He was later pronounced dead at 1:44 AM on June 6, at the Good Samaritan Hospital, about 26 hours after he had been shot. The shooter was 24 year-old Palestinian/Jordanian immigrant, Sirhan Sirhan. In 1969, Sirhan was convicted of murdering the senator and sentenced to death. His sentence was commuted to life in prison in 1972. A freelance newspaper reporter recorded the shooting on audio tape, and the aftermath was captured on film.
