He had been drinking prior to drowning in a pool earlier today. I'm not an expert on Rodney King, but back in high school, I remember reading that he had been drunk during the beating, and I know he was in Celebrity Rehab.

The alchohol addiction came prior to the beating. It was claimed that his blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit the night he was stopped, after a high-speed chase, but that didn't justify the beating the police gave him afterward. My his afterlife be kinder to him than his life.

From what I understand, Rodney King is a great example of the justice systems abuse, but as a person... Not so great. Before he was attacked, he himself attacked a Korean store owner for money.


No one deserves death or what happened to him. RIP.
