Rodney King is Dead

Rodney King was found dead at the bottom of his pool early this morning. The police are seeing this as a drowning.

His name will always be remembered to many of us, especially here in South Central. His incident not only started the LA Riots, but sparked a national conversation about race and equality. 

And even though he walk away from the incident alive, Rodney never escaped the problems that beset him afterwards.

Maybe now, he can rest in peace.
