Filmed by a bystander, the savage beating of Rodney King led to the 1992 L.A. riots. This is the story of the first "viral" video of police brutality against an African American man. ⚠️ Distressing images ⚠️

    "BLUE PRIVILEGE IS A STRATEGY" AND CAN BE DESTROYED WITH ITS OWN EGO

    When they show the video, why do they always leave out the beginning of the video that shows Rodney King going after the police and being tasered and not being effected. He just kept coming after them. He was a very large man.

    Nothing has changed since that video was released. The jury found all cops not guilty of police brutality. When I first saw that video thirty years ago, I knew it was brutal to witness a human being being beaten for reasons I could not comprehend at that time. To me it clearly showed that he wasn’t resisting. To me it showed that he was trying to evade the brutal punishment that was being set upon him! All the cops were white and he was black and unarmed being pummeled with night sticks! If he were a smaller man they would have killed him!

    I remember the killing of a young girl around the same time by a Korean shopkeeper, she got away with murder by a racist judge

    I hope black people and all people of this country don't let this racism get away this time. Give them something to remember until the end of this world.

    Don't commit crime and life will be sweet, I do believe cops weren't to far but how many lives are risked from high speed pursuits?

    I knew someone would bring up this. People cant move forward, if you're stuck in the past. Police brutality is not right on anyone. However destroying properties and looting and killing people is just plain animalistic.

    Only way to change is through physical action. No more talking.
