Wasn't he high on PCP and doing over 100 mph?

I honestly can't remember, but I think that's right.

Nope, it's not... Even if it was, they beat him while he was on the ground. Can't really defend those actions.

From what I recall, his tests for PCP came back negative, but I don't recall what else he was tested for. He also was driving excessively fast, perhaps over 100 mph, and certainly deserved to be pulled over because of it, but the PCP thing may have been concocted by police because they don't believe his pain tolerance as they were beating him senseless.

He wasn't a saint, but he didn't deserve that beating.

Yep, the true victim of the Rodney King incident was Reginald Denny.

Fidel Lopez was also a "true victim" I guess though I'm not certain how King wasn't also a victim.

Rodney King wasn't a saint but I don't think that kind of police brutality has any purpose. Breaking the law doesn't mean it's okay to beat you.

Not that a miscarriage of the law made it okay for people to riot - it didn't...

I wonder if they will riot against pool contractors now?
