    It is with great sadness (not really) this Father's Day morning that it has just been reported with breaking news that Rodney King was found at the bottom of a pool this morning at his house in Rialto. I'm sorry to all, but I myself will not be shedding any tears! What are your thoughts?

    I worked those riots and was amazed at the attitude of the general population in that area. There was "187 cops" (kill cops) on every corner of the burned out area. I have pictures of the day after the riots. I'll see if I can find them and post 'em up.

    Rodney King was a dirtbag and I have not seen any evidence to suggest he changed over the years.

    Amazing that a group of people would not only decide to riot but they would destroy the very people and businesses in their own neighborhoods. Crying shame.

    Only in America can you get high on drugs, resist arrest, drastic measures taken by LEO to try to subdue, go to jail, become a hero, cause riots and get paid by the government for starting such a vial act. I support the fact that what the LEO's did was justified and thank them for doing it.

    Isn't it ironic that he died in a pool that his lawsuit against the LAPD paid for?
