    They weren't treating him any differently than they would have been if he was white too. He was resist and disobeying. They kept asking him to stay down and to comply. But he didn't.

    Those officers destroyed his life. They killed him spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically. Rodney King imploded and those cops walked free.
