It doesn't say how he died in the article but I happened across CNN and a newscaster, Candy Crowley, said he was found at the bottom of his pool!

I have a problem with this comment:

It seemed that the videotape would be the key evidence to a guilty verdict against the officers, whose trial was moved to the predominantly white suburb of Simi Valley, Calif. Instead, on April 29, 1992, a jury with no black members acquitted three of the officers; a mistrial was declared for a fourth.

The only comment I have is: under what rocks do we continue to find these law enforcement 'officials', who think like these guys do that... moving their trial to the predominantly white suburb of Simi Valley, Calif., using an all white jury and then acquitting three of the officers, then declare a mistrial for a fourth- is a good idea?? No wonder a riot started! You can blame King for his alcoholic stupidity but you can't blame him for law enforcement stupidity!!

Rodney King

RIP
