    Anyone that does all that deserves an ass whippin.
    Expecting you to show empathy for another human being was too much to expect. Sorry about that.

    It's sad how this thread is going in light of King's most famous words: "Can't we all get along?"

    Well if that were the definition in play, it was the wrong time. Name calling doesn't win debates, but since you think it does....

    For a, "human being", sure. A scumbag? You can forget it.

    I have zero empathy for an individual who endangers innocent lives, during the commission of a crime.

    I think sometimes cops have to use force to restrain people, but King was in surgery for a long time. I would guess they used excessive force... plus there were about four guys on him at once. This is just what I read today. I didn't see the original footage, and I don't want to. I hate seeing people getting beat up.

    How did he endanger anybody? lol... He didn't riot, and he got his assed kicked during an arrest. Did any of the cops need surgery? What were the extent of their injuries?

    Unless that person is a Conservative. Then you'll find any excuse you can for them.

    They probably don't become in highspeed chases and try to fight it out with the cops, either. See a pattern?

    Again, apdst was the first to mention race and try to turn this into a race debate.

    He was replying to this:

    He was drunk and ****ed up on dope, driving a car down the street. It could have been the same street your family travels on. Then, when he gets busted, he wants to do battle with the cops. Was this asshole really worth the lives of the people that died during the riots?

    ****'em, huh?
    Ie He was pointing out that you can't blame Rodney King for the actions of the rioters.
