The media never showed how King charged at the police before they assaulted him.

The media today is no different today with the Zimmerman issue.
 
2012-06-18 11:56:42 AM  
I bet he was compliant after that.
 
2012-06-18 11:56:49 AM  
Some people have no respect for authority. Rodney King learned his the hard way.
 
2012-06-18 11:57:17 AM  
assaulted him? did you watch the video?
 
2012-06-18 11:57:23 AM  
I can't believe he wasn't happy...
 
2012-06-18 11:57:27 AM  
Well, apparently ol' Rodney learned something from his time with the LAPD!!
 
2012-06-18 11:58:22 AM  
it was probably a cop that killed him. gave him a little payback for causing them all those problems years ago.

Yeah, but just think how many more viewers they can get if there's a riot.

The media don't exist just manipulate the public's politics. They need to make money, too, you know.

FTA: officers considered him "cordial, very professional"

Cops are calling a King a professional? Professional what? Criminal? Jerk? Drunk? Dumas?

They never showed it because it never happened; the cops lied. Which is part of why some of them went to jail.

Zimmerman, of course, was heard being told by police to NOT go after the kid. Chasing someone down with a gun, provoking a response and then screaming HE WAS COMING RIGHT AT ME!" (aka the South Park defense) doesn't even work in Texas.

And along the same lines:

"He's a very high-profile citizen in whatever community he's residing in," DeAnda said. "But we had a good working relationship with him when we had been in contact with him."


I sincerely can't tell of the cop is speaking tongue in cheek or not.

The Rodney King cops were liars. It was obvious from the very start. They claim he was driving in excess of 110 mph. In a Hyundai Excel. I don't know how they are now, but back then, the only way a Hyundai could go 110 mph was if you dropped it off a cliff.

Don't care what he did. Beating an unarmed man who's lying on the ground is wrong. Period.

Sure they did, Troll Account. No one has issue with force used to take him down. He was high on pcp and behaving like a jackass. It's the amount of force (and its method) to KEEP him down is what we object to.

"He charged at the police, so that makes it ok that spent six hours anally raping him."

Actually, alleged lies had nothing to do with the two officers going to prison. In fact, during both trials the whole, unedited video was shown, which was cited as the reason none of them were found guilty of crimes by the state, and two were acquitted in federal court. The two convicted in federal court were convicted of civil rights violations, with the issues arising out of a lack of training, not any sort of allegation of lying.

I never understood the national attention for a worm of the society. Obviously the cops did all the wrong things.

Rodney was beaten in the wrong way by those in authority.

But he was scum. I don't really know how to reconcile my opinion between him and the police that beat him.

Do I feel sorry that he drowned in a swimming pool he would have never deserved owning? Not in your life time.

I hope to forget about him and this issue within the next 30 days. He and his scum relatives should fade into the past.

And BTW, I really don't have issue with the relatives. But they decided to make Rodney an issue.. even knowing he was scum.

More stupidity.

The media cared because a guy was told by the cops not to do something, did it anyway, murdered a kid and tried to hide behind Florida's stand-your-ground law, and the cops just let him go.

You want it to be racial, I would assume because you are a racist. But it's not. It's about nuts with guns committing murders because they think it's legal.

Although I can certainly understand how the black community in Sanford might think there were racial overtones, after a hundred years or so of racism from white cops.

King why do you roll smoke
Why must you drown in a pool when you're on coke?
Over and over...he's being held down by conditions...
Well if he gets stoned and drowns all night long, it's a...Rodney Tradition.

too soon?

I_C_Weener: I think the anal broom rape was in New York. Rodney was just beaten.


I know, I was just taking Troll Accounts position to it's logical conclusion. If someone starts something, no matter how stupid or disagreeable they are, police are allowed to do an unlimited response to their action with no criticism.

You punch a cop? The cop is allowed to rape you. You speed? Rape. You shoot someone? Rape. You rape someone? You better believe the police will rape you.

Rodney King is a fine example of how poorly we choose people we choose to pay attention to.

But follow me here. If Rodney King had not charged police, he would not have been beaten.

Had he not been beaten, he would have never achieved any level of notoriety.

Had he never achieved any level of notoriety, his "Can't we all just get along" plea would not have made him famous.

Had he not become famous he would have never been able to afford a Southern California home with a swimming pool.

Had he no had a home with a swimming pool, he would have almost certainly never drowned.

Therefore, are the police guilty of killing Rodney King?

You've repeated this point multiple times and it is wrong. 911 dispatchers are *not* law enforcement officers nor do they possess the power to compel action legally. They might be right or wrong but they are not cops which really is regardless since the quote "We don't need you to do that" is not an direct order to stop following anyone.

There was a lot of attention because the LAPD was totally out of farking control back then. Even middle class white people (me) were threatened when dealing with minor issues and not respecting their authority.

Are you f*cking kidding me?

Sharpton and all other news networks kept covering it becuase it was "white on black"

That is why the media only cared about it in the fiorst place.

What about the 20 people that got murdered in chicago a few weeks after?

Not a peep about that.

You are obviosuly misinformed and a dildo.

I think Rodney King has understood for a long time that it didn't make any sense to look at him as a martyr or role model... the guy is just no good. He doesn't seem evil but just incapable of keeping out of trouble.

Now, LAPD needed to have something blow up in their face in the 90s; to this day they spend many millions annually settling police brutality and reckless driving suits. They draw their weapons, clubs/tazers, or pepper spray too soon, and they don't use enough verbal de-escalation to avoid physical violence. Rodney just happened to be the unlucky schlub that got to be symbolic of how LAPD treated poor, black, male people... even if he was acting crazy. Yeah, he got paid but it didn't really help him in the long term.

Actually, you've justified banning the video recording of police brutality, to protect the beaten suspect from becoming famous and eventually dying from luxury-related hazards.
