    Los Angles Police officers are filmed beating black motorist Rodney King with nightsticks. Television news stations repeatedly air the film nationwide. Four whites are charged with the beating on March 15, and when they are found not guilty, Los Angeles erupts in riot.

    I was driving my brother to the VA in Los Angeles when the riots were blowing up. We went armed to the teeth.

    Your point to this thread? Also Reginal Denny was targeted soley becasue he was white and the thugs that attacked him were a bunch of low life pos. It was too bad they didn't run into me? Just saying? Esox357.

    I thought it was because the aliens on those UFOs told Farrakhan to keep it going.

    You didn't know Louis said he had been contacted by UFOs? Better read up sir.

    Yet he's still "followed" by untold numbers of idiots who trust and believe him.

    From what I read, Rodney King led the cops on a high speed chase and when he was finally chased down, he started throwing punches at the cops.

    That part did not get videotaped. People's reactions here might be different if it had.
