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...
It was started with a dumb act followed by another dumb act followed by another dumb act. Just one dumb thing after another. A lot of stupidity to go around from everyone. The very definition of a clusterfug.
