Hurt does not have to indicate a physical pain but an emotional one which is what Lonnie was expressing at this point.

I don't think the writing goes too far on this at all. The Watts Riots are an actual part of US history and were very violent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watts_Riots). It would have been unrealistic to have written this episode in any other way because that would have sugar-coated a very turbulent event.
