    Rodney King
    Dead at 47


    Exclusive
    [​IMG]Rodney King -- the man who was at the center of the infamous Los Angeles riots -- was found dead this morning. He was 47.

    According to our sources, King's fiancée found him dead at the bottom of a pool.

    King became famous in 1991 when he was the victim of police brutality at the hands of the LAPD. The officers involved in the incident were acquitted the following year and the announcement of the verdict led to the Los Angeles riots.

    On April 12, 2012, King released a statement to the media regarding the Trayvon Martin shooting. King said he was "grieving for Trayvon Martin" and stated how the scream on the audio of George Zimmerman's 911 call reminded him of his own screaming during his beating by the LAPD.

    The side of the swimming pool probably re-enacted the beating.

    Unfortunately he never got his shit together for long. He was arrested a bunch of times after the beating. Last I heard he was going to marry one of the jurors from his civil trial.

    Yeah, I know. I remember watching him on that Celebrity Rehab show a couple of years ago and he was seriously abusing himself with booze. Seemed like a very soft-spoken, mild-mannered guy once they got him into treatment. No idea if he fell off the wagon afterwards, though he probably did.
