Rodney King was absolutely not beaten by any mobs during a riot. He was subdued by LAPD after attacking them in a PCP-fueled rage following having been pulled over by them, someone filmed that, and the mainstream media presented a heavily-edited video to the public in order to inflame racial tensions. When the officers that subdued King were acquitted, riots broke out in Los Angeles, thanks to the lies that the mainstream media put out that attempted to make the officers appear guilty. A white truck driver named Reginald Denny is probably the most well-known victim of those riots.

Rodney King did indeed get on TV and ask “(c)an we all get along, (etc.)” in a plea to the public to quell the riots. Was not enough; the national guard and Marines had to be brought in.

The mainstream media has only gotten worse in their lying ways since those infamous days. If they had to have paid for their malfeasance out of their own pockets (including the damage incurred due to the rioting that they caused), they would have been bankrupted years ago and several executives would be in jail till this day.

Thanks for the facts. It was, of course, REGINALD DENNY who was the true victim of the riots, and Rodney King was the original main story that started the riots (with the help of, surprise, surprise, the MSM).
