Hmmmm. Sounds like you're out of control.

As one poster said on the previous page:


In November 1989, King robbed a store in Monterey Park, California. He threatened to hit the Korean store owner with an iron bar he was carrying, then hit him with a pole. King stole $200 in the robbery. He was convicted, sentenced to two years imprisonment and released after serving a year

Just think if he would of served his full sentence the L.A. riots wouldn't of happened he would of still been in prison.

He beats a guy with a pole for $200. The police beat him after he rushed at them for over way over a million.


Speaking of "out of control".

High-speed chase

On the night of March 2, 1991, King and two passengers, Bryant Allen and Freddie Helms, were driving west on Foothill Freeway (Interstate 210) in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles. Prior to driving on the Foothill Freeway, the three men had spent the night watching a basketball game and drinking at a friend's house in Los Angeles.[9] After being tested five hours after the incident, King's blood-alcohol level was found to be just under the legal limit. This meant that his blood alcohol level was approximately 0.19—almost two and a half times the legal limit in California—when he was driving.[10] At 12:30 am, Officers Tim and Melanie Singer, a husband-and-wife duo of the California Highway Patrol, spotted King's car speeding. The officers then pursued King at high speeds.[11][12] According to King's own statements, he refused to pull the car over because he thought a driving under the influence test would violate his parole for a previous robbery conviction.[13]

King exited the freeway, and the chase continued through residential streets at speeds allegedly ranging from 55 to 80 mph.[14][15] By this point, several police cars and a helicopter had joined in the pursuit. After approximately eight miles, officers cornered King's car. The first five LAPD officers to arrive at the scene were Stacey Koon, Laurence Powell, Timothy Wind, Theodore Briseno and Rolando Solano.

Officer Tim Singer ordered King and his two passengers to exit the vehicle and lie face down on the ground. The two passengers complied and were taken into custody without incident.[9] King initially remained in the car. When he finally did emerge, he acted bizarrely: giggling, patting the ground, and waving to the police helicopter overhead.[15] King then grabbed his buttocks. Officer Melanie Singer momentarily thought he was reaching for a gun.[16] She drew her gun and pointed it at King, ordering him to lie on the ground. King complied. Singer approached King with her gun drawn, preparing to make the arrest.

At this point, Sergeant Stacey Koon intervened and ordered Officer Melanie Singer to holster her weapon. LAPD officers are taught not to approach a suspect with a drawn gun, as there is a risk of the suspect gaining control of it if they get too close.[17] Koon then ordered the four other LAPD officers at the scene—Briseno, Powell, Solano and Wind—to subdue and handcuff King in a manner called a "swarm", a technique that involves multiple officers grabbing a suspect with empty hands. As the officers attempted to do so, King, who was 6'3 and about 225 pounds at the time, physically resisted. King rose up, tossing Officers Powell and Briseno off his back. King then struck Officer Briseno in the chest.[18] Seeing this, Koon ordered all of the officers to fall back. The officers later testified that they believed King was under the influence of the dissociative drug phencyclidine (PCP).[19] King's toxicology results tested negative for PCP

TPTB were very upset at the outcome of the King riots. They realized that when the SHTF, TPTB are quite powerless and the common man gained much ground.

They were not going to let this one go, even if they had to kill him on his death bed they were not going to let him go naturally.


Complete, 100% conjecture. There is ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE of any foul play in this at all, nothing. Why the hell are people automatically jumping to the conclusion that he was murdered?

Jeez, this place gets worse and worse.

At least wait until there is SOME REASON to have suspicion. And no, a gut feeling is not evidence of anything.


You mean like brietbart and jfk jr?

Hey nice job injecting another race thread.

Wait, you said he was a giant turd, then you insist that we don't judge. But you just did, by saying that Rodney was a giant turd. Are you confused?

I support you in this notion anyhow.

Good riddance of the turd.
