Zimmerman was an accident waiting to happen. If a white kid was walking through the neighbor, I don't believe Zimmerman would have followed him. Zimmerman was told NOT to engage the boy. Zimmerman's life was in no danger, until he engaged the boy and a fight happened. Zimmerman brought the gun to the scene, not the boy, so ...

Rodney King could have avoided that that whole incident. There were two other passengers in King's car and they complied with the Police, and ther was no incident with them. They went peacefully. Rodney did NOT go peacefully. He is a 6'4" big man that lunged after the police. He was tased 3 times, and he still would not get into the prone position. Still, he was brutally beaten. But I gauretee you a white man wouold get beat JUST THE SAME. Race had NOTHING to do with it.

Are you saying there's more to the incident than what was released on video?

ah, through your crystal ball. police brutality was the issue of that case. i am not here to stroke your white nationalist ego. that is your own issues.

He was suspicious of a black man with a hoodie on who looked like he was prowling. That makes him a hateful racist? Zimmerman probably carried a can of pepper spray instead of a gun, but don't you think he would have pulled that trigger if it was a white man beating him up?

Rodney King is dead.

Good God yes. There is a large part of the video that got cut out that shows Rodney attaking the police. The short spot the media aired was just that of Rodney getting his azz beat. Rodney was beaten bad, but the rest of the video, which the jury saw, clearly shows that this was NOT racially motivated, yet the whole Democratic party(Obama) thinks otherwise, thatnks to the bias media.

And he is talked about and portrayed as a civil rights leader, and a saint. He was a wife beating alcoholic/drug user who led the police on a high speed chase through neighborhoods. If I ever do anything like that, I give you all permission to beat my butt. srsly. Any white, Hispanic, Innuit that does the same thing as Rodney would incite the same outcome. Black had NOTHING to do with it. But that is not how it is reported. That is not how it is talked about.

DEEZUS says:
when has he been portrayed as a civil rights leader and a saint?

and how do you know what Obama thinks on the matter? Did you tend the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters?

Rodney is responsible for a LOT of the Dems to get into politics. The far left is largely his movement.

"Obama, he wouldn't have been in office without what happened to me and a lot of black people before me," he told The Los Angeles Times. "He would never have been in that situation, no doubt in my mind. He would get there eventually, but it would have been a lot longer. So I am glad for what I went through. It opened the doors for a lot of people." - King

From a t-shirt in the 90s:

LAPD:

What's a Democeatic Party?? Did Rodney King attend one before the Cops beat the crap out of him??

He is obviously omniscient DEEZUS. All right-wing blowhards are, except when it comes to predicting elections.

I just found this interesting tidbit on the intraweb about Van Jones. The Rodney King incident was HUGE in his life. And the far left is right along with him.

Jones says he became politically radicalized in the aftermath of the deadly April 1992 Los Angeles riots which erupted shortly after four L.A. police officers who had beaten the now-infamous Rodney King were exonerated in court. "I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th," says Jones, "and then the verdicts came down on April 29th. By August, I was a communist."

In early May 1992, after the L.A. riots had ended, Jones was dispatched by LCCR executive director Eva Patterson to serve as a legal monitor at a nonviolent protest (against the Rodney King verdicts) in San Francisco. Local police, fearful that the event would devolve into violence, stopped the proceedings and arrested many of the participants, including all the legal monitors. Jones spent a short time in jail, and all charges against him were subsequently dropped.

Recalling his brief incarceration, Jones says: "I met all these young radical people of color. I mean really radical: communists and anarchists. And it was, like, `This is what I need to be a part of.' I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary."

we still have the same problem in nyc.. just a couple a days ago. the police killed a black individual for no apparant reason of threat to the police...

RIP Rodney, you're still a boogie man to the right-wing nuts

Conservatives hardly ever look more foolish than when they try to tell those of us on the left who our heroes supposedly are.
