    Rodney King found dead in swimming pool [W:21]

    Rodney King, whose videotaped beating by police in 1991 sparked the L.A. riots, was found dead at his California home on Sunday. He was 47.
    Rodney King, of course, will be remembered as the poster boy for police beatings, and for the riot which ensued after the officers were acquitted by an all white jury. The LA riots left 55 people dead, and hundreds injured.

    No big loss. The guy was a street thug scumbag. I hope he burns in hell.

    It was pathetic how the Liberals made a celebrity hero out of this scumbag.

    Just imagine all the people that were killed an injured, just because this dirtbag got a well deserved ass whippin'. This piece-a-crap wasn't worth it.

    Ah yes -- compassionate conservatism....
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    This is incredibly sad if only because he was so young. From what I've read, he was intoxicated and having some kind of breakdown. In cases like these, the most I usually hope for is that the deceased is finally at peace. I hope that for him.

    What about all the innocent people--most of them black--that were killed, or injured over this clown?

    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?

    Whatever happened to that conservative ideal of personal responsibility?

    Your behavior in this thread is disgusting. The world would benefit with less people like you. And no, King wasn't in the street rioting and killing people. Only the rioters are responsible for their actions, as much as you're responsible for your statements in this thread.
