I told you Rodney King couldn’t stay sober. He has never admitted fault for his own actions that led to his beatings at the hands of police- and the subsequent riots that left 55 dead and more than 2,000 injured. Dr. Drew gave this bastard a free house on TV in a misguided stunt designed to help King stay sober. But gifts unearned are never appreciated. Rodney has been drinking again for quite a while and has now gotten himself pulled over by the cops for another DUI. Or was he just trying to goad the cops into beating his ass again so he could get another 3.8 million bucks?
From CNN here:
Rodney King, whose videotaped beating by police ultimately led to the 1992 Los Angeles riots, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence on Tuesday.
King was behind the wheel of a 1994 Mitsubishi when he was pulled over in Moreno Valley, in Southern California’s Riverside County, the city’s police department reported. Officers saw King — who has acknowledged a longstanding drinking problem — commit “several traffic violations“.
“A preliminary evaluation of the driver indicated he was possibly driving while impaired.”
King’s 1991 beating by Los Angeles police officers after a traffic stop left him with skull fractures and brain and kidney damage. It was captured on video by a nearby resident, and four officers were indicted as a result.
But their trial the following year led to three acquittals and a mistrial in the predominantly white suburb of Simi Valley, verdicts that set off three days of riots in African-American neighborhoods. By the time it was over, 55 people were dead, more than 2,000 were hurt, and property damage exceeded $1 billion.
Rodney King has had more chances than any other repeat offender. He is a menace to society and has already caused the deaths of dozens. Time to get this drunk off the streets for good.
