LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Rodney King, who came to symbolize racial tensions in the United States after his 1991 beating at the hands of police led to deadly riots in Los Angeles a year later, was found dead in a swimming pool on Sunday in Rialto, California, police said. He was 47. "Preliminary indications are that this is a drowning with no signs of foul play," Rialto police said in a statement. King was discovered by his fiancée, said Rialto police Captain Randy De Anda.

I didn't even realise as many as 50 people died in the LA riots.

 

Had it happened today, the internet would have exploded when the video went viral. Doubt people would have waited until the trial.

 

Seem to remember Terry Christian trying a serious news report on The Word.
