oh. you weren't trolling. I guess the adults took over Freep, while the trolls came here.


I'm not seeing it. Two decent posts about his quote and a post of sympathy for his reality show persona. The rest looks just as awful as always.

9beers: Rodney King's fiancée is telling friends Rodney had been drinking all day Saturday ... and had smoked weed in the hours leading up to his death ... sources close to King tell TMZ.

According to our sources, King's fiancée, Cynthia Kelley, is telling friends King was at the house all day drinking, and he smoked marijuana at some point, before she went to went to bed at 2:00 AM.

We're told Kelley says she next saw King at around 5:00 AM when she was awoken by him screaming in the backyard. Our sources say Kelley found King naked, banging on the glass, and she called out to him, "What's wrong, Rodney?"

Kelley is telling friends she then went to grab her phone when she heard a big splash. She then went to the backyard and discovered him in the bottom of the pool and called police.

Sounds like he was smoking something a little stronger than weed.

Those are the facts of the case. Sorry if you can't accept that there was more to the story than what you saw on the video. Go read the wiki page on the case for backup if you can't deal with it here.

One of the more embarrassing events in our country's history. Cops acting like utter thugs, rioters acting like violent bastards, King wasting away his damages in something like two years. The whole stinking mess is heart-breaking.

Can't we get along, indeed.

technically, yes.

He was stoned out of his gourd when the whole beating thing happened, and apparently he was stoned out of he gourd when he decided to go swimming.

Brubold: It's sad to me that the guy couldn't ever be free of his addictions. He seemed like a nice guy when he was sober.

RIP


Gotta love the War on Drugs. Stuff like this happens when addiction is treated as a judicial, not a medical, problem.

And they'd better not blame it on weed. Weed isn't any more likely to cause drowning than bath salts are to cause face-eating.

(And no, the face-eater's use of bath salts wasn't proven by toxicology tests when the "news" came out; it was just some police drone speculating that he "may" have been on bath salts. Never mind that he was very likely to be mentally ill and might have eaten face regardless of what he was on.That, friends, is how inane hysteria starts and leads to more stupid laws telling us what we can't put in our bodies.)
