In one of the most searing images from the riots, a 33-year-old white construction worker named Reginald Denny was pulled from his vehicle and beaten unconscious by four men at a Los Angeles intersection. Twenty years later, he has still not recovered from his injuries.

RIP King, this sucks worse IMO

I'm not one to defend what the police did and whatnot, but wasn't Rodney King really just a total dirtbag who happened to be a victim of excessive force by the police?

What's the worst thing he did in your opinion? Drugs? He never committed violent crimes or anything against children as far as I know. Not sure Grad A POS shouldn't be saved for people a little worst then him. Don't confuse infamous with evil.

if you do not want to be subdued do not resist arrest.. Do what you are asked..

I have a healthy respect for those guys and gals in Blue, when they come up to a car they never know what they could be looking at.. Does he have a gun, knife, now days an explosive device. Is he on some kind of drugs..

Do what your told and you do not get hurt.. pretty plain and simple..

It has been my experience that 99% of the time your being stopped for a good reason, sometimes just as simple as your stop lights do not work and they are not their to ticket you but to tell you so YOU do not get hurt..

If you act like an ass your going to be treated like one..

Beating women, his own kids, robbing stores. That is at least what he was caught for. Read for yourself he is a grade A piece of work.

The problem is thst you're implying that police treat everyone in that same manner. They're just like any other person. There are good ones and bad ones. But saying Rodney King got what he had coming is exactly why the riots happened in the first place.

I believe King was pulled over for going 100 MPH in a residential area. He could have easily killed somebody that night. I didn't see any tape on what happened before he was pulled out of the car and maybe he did resist arrest but once he was on the street, what happened afterwards was a crime in itself. I have a healthy respect for the Police and what they do as well but your job is to uphold the law, not break it yourself.

When I was in my teens thru mid 20s I was pulled over a number of times, usually for not doing anything, and not cited for anything. A few times there weren't any warnings and the cops never told me that I did anything wrong. Cops just did a compete search of the car, checked my DL, and sent me on my way when they found nothing wrong. One I was pulled out of the car at gun point, and I was just sitting there parked, legally! Nothing was wrong with the car.

When I hit my mid 20s it pretty much stopped. I haven't been pulled over in a while for not doing nothing. The few times I've been pulled over in the past 10 or so years, it was because I did something wrong or there was something wrong with the vehicle (head or tail light out).

I've never had anything like that happen to me. Can I ask if you're a minority? I was riding in a car once with a buddy who played running back on my HS football team and he was pulled over and I don't recall him doing anything wrong. He was black

They get pulled over all the time in my town. I know it is just a generalization/stereotype, but the Asian immigrants we have moving here now do an awful job of driving. Not much looking for the right of way or signaling turns/lane switches. Everyone is guilty of it for sure, but I could have been hit by about five or so in the last day if I didn't give up my right away or swerve to avoid those who didn't look or signal a switch.

Young teenage drivers are becoming the worst tho.

Yep, I'm black. I never dressed like a thug or anything. I was just a normal young black guy.

I've been hit twice by Asian female drivers who I'd say are not from the US. Both times they ignored traffic laws, didn't check to make sure it was clear, ran right into me, and in both cases they swore up and down that it was not their fault. In one of the cases, her insurance company had to make it clear to her that she was at fault.

Wasn't he high on PCP or something? I know he was continually charging at the cops even after they were trying to subdue him. That's if you've seen the full video and not the clipped version.

Regardless of his past, the guy seemed to have turned his life around after rehab (alcohol).

Sad that he'd die on father's day as he had atleast three kids that I knew of.

RIP, Rodney.
