She heard him dive in, went outside and he was already drowned, so she left him in the pool and called police?

If you are going to have a pool in your yard, you need to know at least basic CPR/first aid, because it’s almost certain if she had just pulled him out and followed standard procedures, he could have been resuscitated.

What time are the “whitey killed Rodney” riots? Will there be concession stands this time?

What are the odds that he’ll vote in November?

Surprisingly, Kalifornia has a good system...the issuer of the death certificate notifies the appropriate registrar.

My Dad died not long before absentee ballots went out for some election (he and Mom were both permanent absentee voters), and no ballot came under his name - and I was watching for it, for sure!

It depends on too many factors to make a snap judgement. Some people are just not naturally buoyant, doubly so if their lungs are filled with water.

Who cares about this Rodney King?

The media is just trying to distract us from the fact that Obama just turned the U.S.A into a dictatorship. Obama just passed the Dream Act by edict, giving Amnesty to illegals.

As a bonus the media distracts us from the terrible economy.

Get ready for 24/7 Rodney King media coverage.

All I can gather from the Rodney King episode is that it pays to resist arrest.

I hope it didn’t go somewhere else :(

Near the end of her life, my Mom moved from the East Coast, to Seattle, to be close to my sister. When I went up to visit, I asked her why she didn’t register to vote. “I’ve voted Republican all my life, I don’t want to be voting Democrat, after I die”.

“According to our sources, King’s fiancée, Cynthia Kelley, is telling friends King was at the house all day drinking, and he smoked marijuana at some point, before she went to went to bed at 2:00 AM. We’re told Kelley says she next saw King at around 5:00 AM when she was awoken by him screaming in the backyard. Our sources say Kelley found King naked, banging on the glass, and she called out to him, “What’s wrong, Rodney?”

Sounds like pubic intoxication.

It’s the fault of the courts for awarding him that 3.8 million. He could have never afforded to drown in his own swimming pool with out it. Sorry Rodney, your lifestyle was your own worst enemy.

I'm going to guess that the money was just about gone by now. He might have been depressed by the realization.

Your tagline: China is destroying U.S. ability to manufacture,makes everything.

China? How about the EPA and the obsessive compulsive authoritarian Green agenda?

That includes food production. Why do American consumers think some 75% of the fish they eat is caught in foreign waters? Do they really think US waters have been "overfished" -- moreso than the waters surrounding, say, third-world Asian nations, a primary source of fish for American consumers?

(Beware Romney on this one, ABOers, because he buys into it hook, line, and sinker. Just sayin' ...)

In that case, it's also partially the fault of his "fiancee" who was on the jury that awarded him $3.8 million. Sickening that this woman gets away with shacking up with this man and therefore benefitting from the money she helped reward to him through the courts. Sick sick sick.

Meh, he lived like a drunk, pot-smoking two-bit thug, and he died like a drunk, pot-smoking two-bit thug. Last arrest was less than one year ago.

China, the EPA, and the green agenda are destroying American industry and America. Yes the EPA is harmful and should be abolished .That doesn’t give China a pass and what they’ve purposefully done to the U.S.A. (manipulating currency,dumping products, import restrictions, stealing technology etc.). Workers in U.S. manufacturing have declined from 17 million to 11 million since 2000 and still decreasing , only 3.8% of the U.S. population now . China has enough workers in manufacturing as 33% of the U.S. population.
