What a grand opus to the symphony that was the life of Rodney King.

Society murdered Rodney King. SOCIETY, man.

I'm surprised he couldn't swim.

a black dude who can't swim??? drowning is plausible

Drunk falls in pool, drunk stays in pool, news at 6:00.

I was suspicious from the start. I mean come on, a black guy in a pool? On purpose?

imagining Ace Ventura bobbing head, saying it was no accident and that, "He was murdered. Take that sister! Ya feel that, ya feel that. This house has been cleaned. Loser, Loohooser."
 
2012-06-18 10:24:17 AM  
So wait a minute. If true, then Rodney King was murdered by a member of the jury that got him all that money from LA who later became his fiance. That can't possibly be real, therefore she did not murder him. QED.

I know a life of crime has led me to this sorry fate, and yet, I blame society. Society made me what I am.

Right on the heels of one of the worst/most suspicious boxing decisions in history. Awesomely appropriate.

And I apparently read "Rodney King" as "Don King." I'm an idiot.

So it was the girlfriend, with booze and ice skates, in the pool.

Not according to the autopsy.

This is what would make it the perfect murder.

I bet King was part of the fix on the Paquia Bradley fight. Now that the state is looking into it the Mob is knocking off the players. I'll miss his spikey grey hair. BTW where was Tyson that night?

They both had at least one big club date?

He was pretty broke so she must have killed him for sport. Unless there was a life insurance policy. Oh wait. He has his memoirs coming out. An untimely death would increase interest in the book and make it sell better. Who now would profit from more books sales and a movie, I wonder.

I wonder if she recently bought a 5 pound block of ice. Crack him with the ice and the murder weapon melts. Cops think he hit his head. I saw this on an old Columbo mystery. Always wondered why the non pool water the guy used to wash his foot prints away didn't evaporate.

Perhaps now the audience participation line, "It's a Natalie Wood pool party!" from Rocky Horror Picture Show can be altered to, "It's a Rodney King pool party!"

If this was an episode of Law & Order, she would have awarded him the money, sought him out sexually and then murdered him as a convoluted plan to gain control of his finances. Of course, this is real life and he's blown all the cash already (I think), so.

Somebody needs to photoshop Rodney King onto the Nevermind album. Stat!

Is it legal for a juror to award someone money and then approach them for a romantic type deal? Seems like that's shady?
 
2012-06-18 10:44:10 AM  
I remember hearing an interview with Rodney King on NPR not that long ago. He seemed surprisingly down to earth, and very honest and open about his substance abuse issues and general self defeating behavior. The guy certainly has had some major shiat to deal with in his life, can't say that I'd have done any better.

I originally read it as a short story by Roald Dahl, "Lambs To The Slaughter". We were supposed to analyze it in an english class and make up all the bits the author didn't explicitly state.

Why can't his friends and fiancée just get along?
 
2012-06-18 10:58:00 AM  
Was the fiancee Black? If so, no need to speculate. Blacks kill. It's what they do. That and mooch.
