Rodney King 1965-2012

The savage beating of Rodney King, an unarmed and intoxicated motorist, 
by the Los Angeles police in 1991 sparked the worst civil riots in American 
history. As a victim of police brutality and a symbol of civil rights for 
African-Americans, Rodney King inadvertently became a most 
unlikely American hero.
