9/11, D-Day, Pearl Harbor, Rodney King, OJ Acquittal/Bronco chase all would've been fascinating
I'm over 50 years old, and I have lived thru a lot! 9/11, Rodney King riots, riots of 1968, NEVER have I seen anything like this!
My wife said same thing, about west L.A. during the Rodney King riots.
As matter of fact I give them credit for not doing that. many Police Dept's in U.S. prob would have. This isn't Rodney King.
I hope this guy gets beat like Rodney King before they take him in.
wear the wrong colors and catch a Rodney King beat down
Son this is getting real . Can people start rioting already ?! Can we go in like the people did in LA due to Rodney king ?!
I have a bad feeling that more events like the will follow. "Can't we all just get along?" - Rodney King
Mr. Rodney King, and every COEXIST bumper sticker ever made were flawed. All because someone thinks that your life is less valuable.
Wished these dudes will get caught and get a Rodney King beatdown and shot and killed. Getting shot dead is too easy
You should have seen LA during the Rodney King riots. Was like living in a war zoom. Tanks in the streets of LA. Bizarre.
Not violent. Remember Rodney King there was zero violence there. SMH. America always responds w/violence we're just more patient.
Rodney King knows the answer to that
Waco Massacre, Rodney King beating and The Columbine Massacre. And now Boston Bombing. April is a sad month
Not to mention Rodney King - can you imagine how organized those riots would have been?
On this day in history April 19, 1994 Rodney King was awarded $3,800,000 in compensation for the police beating

19 years ago, today a Los Angeles jury awarded Rodney King 3.8 million dollars for violation of his civil rights. 👍
Of course they shot him they couldn't of course taze him or subdue him like Rodney King even. Smh.

“freshman Rodney Purvis to transfer to
disappointed in your statement. So vague and "Rodney King" of you. Was that the same one from two years ago?
As promised Tom Royce...the mathematical formula which shows girls = evil... First we state that girls require time and money: Girls = Time x Money And as we all know, "Time is Money" Time = Money Therefore: Girls = Money x Money = (Money)² And because "Money is the root of all evil": Money = Square Root of Evil Therefore: Girls = √(Evil)² Thus, we are forced to conclude that: Girls = Evil *DISCLAIMER: Ladies, this is what's known as "humor"...or a "joke".I personally do NOT, repeat DO NOT, subscribe to the notion that girls are evil. So, if you are of the hyper-sensitive, super-touchy, easily offended variety.please, move along. (However, it IS math mind you. ;) )
I have the same birthday as; Casanova, Marvin Gaye, Rodney King and Teddy Sheringham! Wow! Quite a mix!

Those HATING have no Pity and have grown from State to State & City to City, these HATERS have gotten to become a major part of today's Society; they go to your school, at your job even in YOUR HOME...seems as if HATERS are here to stay and will never leave you ALONE. The MORE POPULAR you are, the BETTER LOOKING, the MORE MONEY, BIGGER HOUSE and NEWER CAR, especially if you are A STAR, then the MORE HATERS you will have no matter WHO YOU ARE whether near or Far. HATERS are not just common folks, they can be CELEBRITIES TOO, just take a look at LIL WAYNE and MIAMI HEAT Basketball Crew, look at CHRIS BROWN and DRAKE with RIHANNA (true true).we all see HOW THEY DO. Why Ppl LOVE to HATE so much I dont know...HATE HATE HATE everywhere you go. Why Ppl LOVE to HATE its such ...

And Rodney King, ain't ever felt a beat like this
Three men with chains around their ankles and their hands cuffed at their sides shuffled into McDonough County courtroom 202 this afternoon. One was allegedly found with Vicodin he didn't have a prescription for. One had admitted to stealing a 357 Smith & Wesson handgun from Farm King. And at the very end of the row — in a orange v-neck and gray pants with the size stamped on the left leg — sat Alvin Montgomery. He is charged in connection with the prank phone call to 911 that cited a gunman at 509 W. Murray St and sent police into a flurry. He was the first to have his name called by the judge. He stood up and made his way to the bench, his chains clinking together. How did he end up at the 2:30 bond hearing two days after the incident? Not everything is clear yet, but here's what is known. Montgomery, a pre-law enforcement and justice administration major at Western, phoned the Office of Public Safety Thursday and asked if police were looking for him. They were. Police subsequently arrested him but ...
Tonight would be a good time to hit the pool and Hot Tub :)

After yesterday night live performance someone said : " Alicia Keys was amazing! I don’t feel duped. She sounds EXACTLY how she sounds on her record. The low sultry raspy voice gave me life! And every time she turned her back to the audience J and I kept giggling. All I can say is, they need to stop photoshopping her…. ain’t NOTHIN wrong with those curves! lol 1) I had no idea she could play drums 2) When she played “not even the king” you could hear a pin drop in the audience (was trying not to cry) lol 3) She covered “Murdah, She Wrote” Ya’ll know I had to bust out in whine!

Sorry, People, but I just have to say this 'cause I am so tired of the nasty posts/comments I see regarding our politics. And it seems to come from all sides of every issue. Cummon, People. Disagree with our politicians, but lets keep it to the issues and mind our manners. Sometimes I feel like we're just children in a sandbox fighting over who gets the toy truck. Our country is struggling with grown up issues, so lets act like grown ups and work together to find some kind of common ground. Then we may actually solve our problems. There are both Conservatives & Liberals with great ideas on what we can do to make things better. Yes, I am Liberal, but I also know we ALL need each other. We NEED to work together. Everyone has something to contribute to much needed solutions. Lets drop the political labels and just be The People again, please. In the words of Rodney King afte the L. A. riots years ago, "Cant we all just get along?"

It was my job for 10 years to keep up on current events so that I could brief leadership on the important things that are going on in the world. As I have spent the last year at home I have been stuck with the big 3 major networks and their morning news and I am mad and disappointed with what I see. I don't care about Beiber or Kelly Osborne and their issues. Tell me about what we are doing to fix our issues at home and what our real threats from abroad are. Sorry for the soapbox. I am just a bit agitated by the continued dumbing down of America!

I wonder who these clowns would call when they're in trouble? Rodney King was worth a rally, this was just ridiculous
I love my brothers...King Rodney Jirves and Black Friday!!!

An article from an ex straits times journalist. An eye opener. Singapore is brilliant at self-promotion, says an Australian analyst, but it is no financial dynamo. Much of the world has been deluded by its hollow roars of success. Singapore, the modern city-state known for its authoritarian ways and conservative government, has a reputation for functional efficiency and capitalist success. The smallest member of Asean geographically is often touted as one of Asia’s great success stories – a gleaming city that emerged from the tropical swamps under a strict but wise autocrat, Lee Kuan Yew. But a fascinating new book by Australian Rodney King looks deeper into the “the Singapore Miracle” and reveals that a lot of the city’s supposed successes are in fact hot air. Reports of Singapore being a dynamic commercial melting pot are, King says, simply the oft-repeated claims of a government that tolerates little dissent, and city leaders who may actually have stifled the sort of entrepreneurial dynamism ...

The term "Police Brutality" is used very lightly these days. That Mardi Gras video was like a warm hug compared to the Rodney King incident and lets be honest the little brat deserved it. March into the desert you tree hugging do-gooders.
Thanks to Rodney King for an awesome Monkey Jits Workshop this morning! The session was for trainers only and focused on key concepts for passing the guard. Thanks also to my training partners Wayne & Tim for their help and advice throughout the session. We finished off with boxing, working rounds of sparring with each trainer. This was a lot of fun as well and a great way to the end the session. I'm looking forward working more Jits at the Rodney King Seminar tonight :)
I'm sick of this when it's a White person that murders an innocent person in a park no one bats an eyelid,when it's a black person all of a sudden every black person should leave the country:-s ok RIP to the human being that was killed that is all.
Please understand - I am not cop bashing - I just want the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Is that too much to ask?
Really looking forward to catching up more with our guest Christian de Quincey what a gentleman and a very interesting man :-) Hope to see him at CM Aus HQ tonight :-)
Great morning of rolling and working many passing the guard and half guard concepts with all the Australian Trainers and Head Coach Rodney King...nice flow and cool passes! Finished the morning with some sparring rounds...ace job by everyone...even though I clashed heads with the Master of clinch boxing lmao. Had a blast! Thank you to Mitch Elliott for organising a tasty lunch...will be going there again brother cheers :-)
There's a time n place fa everything, til then hold ya head... I dont fear death, jus fear failure like Rodney king fear that nightstick...failures not an option...i see is greenlights
Ima tell y'all a secret.. My lil bra had me make a beat with Dos' and it was ridiculous.. It made me realize something.. If Me, Young Diesel, Ricky Boom, Sam Beast and Trackademicks and of course, Dos' linked up and made a super-production team.. - We would literrally knock the doors off the industry hinges! Think about it.
Justin S. Williams Vincent Stewart we can all get along-RIP Rodney King
I seen bout 10 *** pulled over. it's time to go home...
A family reunion on the 4th of July sounded like a great idea! However, because of personal and family conflicts, it would be hypocritical to act like we all get along. Therefore, there will be NO FAMILY REUNION. How Sad :( I'm sure Ignacio will miss seeing all of you.

Quotes don't really mean much without the situation they were said under. For instance: "can't we all just get along," doesn't mean much. But when Rodney King said it after a two million dollar settlement: then it was timeless.

Putting together this concert with Tamika Jeanty Rimidi I-am Dejah Rodney Bertrand E. Boyd II Marcus Blake & 3rd Party, Krishton King, Kaaren Styles TestaRossa Tay Matt Bodi Brenowitz and NoEmotion, God is helping me put it all together now, its gonna be epic. Miami has very talented eclectic people and together we will show the world.
Keep calm and carry on. This will never happen to you.
"All I'm sayin' is that black people need ta stop lyin'! Numba 1. Rodney King shoulda got his *** beat for drivin' drunk and bein' grown in a Hyundai! Numba 2. OJ did it! And Numba 3. Rosa Park ain't do nuttin' but sit her black *** down!" If you don't recognize the reference, don't comment and say I'mbeing racist.
Watch me open a can of worms...I just watched the video of the CPD and Adam Tatum. I'm NOT going to say that Adam Tatum deserved that, but I'm also NOT going to say that those officers deserved to have their jobs taken away. In my opinion the punishment was NOT worth the crime in regard to the "victim" but he was...again in my opinion...given plenty of options to comply. I'm thinking that the officers that were relieved of their duties could have made some different decisions but at the same time, if we continue to let these thugs run over us because they think we will become scared to "go too far" then they win. I hate that Adam Tatum got hit that many times and I DO believe that with two officers that size, it could have been handled in a different manner. Let's use brute force. Not brutal force. But even in saying that: I have to realize that I've never worn a badge and I don't feel the threat. If it's me an Adam Tatum it's a no brainer, he comes at me and if I can't fight him off I shoot him. CP ...
Some people on another continet, not only have a death wish, they openly stated they might try to unke the U.S. which would only kikll innocent people, but possibly start WWIII. IN the words of Rodney King(RIP)" Can't we all just get along?"
I so want to wish my Husband of 27 years of My married life..To kiss my *** ! just kidding with ya.. LMAO..We have been together since 1982.. got married 1986,, Life is what we make of it .. I so love you David King..Our best is coming!!!

I think my neighbors are killing a pig ...
Have a great evening all. This cat's heading to a horizontal position. I'm beat like Rodney King.
Night 1 of the Rodney King Seminar was awesome! Rodney led us through a Monkey Jits flow starting out with grip fighting from standing, takedown options from here, a sneaky submission option when the opponent hits the deck, a simple but effective guard pass to knee-ride, and some very cool submission options from here depending on how the opponent blocks/counters your moves. Thanks to Rodney for his time and knowledge, James for organising the event and all the other trainers and clients in attendance for their awesome attitudes and energy! I'm looking forward to Day 2 :)
My bro said he wanted to get a pinata made up to look like Rodney King, I was like *** thats brutal. a pinata of RODNEY KING. that is harsh. but if you didn't slightly laugh than . your a square. and I ain't mad at you. I slightly laughed but then most people already know that my sense of humor can be dark at times.
My son just run over his Samsung Galaxy lll, Lord this is gonna be a long night!
I hated it when the Rodney King case was turned into a racial issue instead of being put forth as a civil rights issue that could focus on what that beating really meant...
On my birthday (8/22) in the year 2000 I purchased my Lexus is300 (Big Blue) brand new from the lot. Never in my wildest dreams would I think that I would still be driving this car after nearly 14 years. Today, I hit the 300,000 mile mark. Here are a couple of things that may intrigue you. I have burnt approx 14,285 gallons of gas in this car. -Avg gas price in Aug of 2000 was $1.66 per gallon -Avg gas price now $4.21 per gallon -At an avg of $2.73 over the last 13 years I have spent roughly $38,998 in gas. Which -is $4000 more than I paid for the car. -I have had one speeding ticket, the first month I owned it. Clocked at 80ish but was really going 100ish :) -Kissed only one other car fender on a late night long ago. Great story for another time. -I am on my 4th windshield. -I have put on 6 or 7 sets of tires. -Just purchased two new rims because the original ones had a crack. -I am on my 4th battery. -Had one radiator put in 4 years ago. -Gone through 3 sets of brakes. -Both headlight bulbs have been re ...

Is it too early for me to inform y'all that I will be attending my 9th or 10th SXSW next week in Austin? Is it bragging to say that among the artists I will be endeavoring to see there is: Richard Thompson, John Hiatt, Buddy Miller, Sharon Jones, Billy Joe Shaver, Chuck Mead, RWH, Charles Bradley, Natalie Maines, JC Brooks, the Waco Brothers, Emmylou and Rodney, Steve Earle, and maybe even Amy Lavere.yeah, I thought so. Four days of standing on concrete never can be better. They have beer there too.
Okay!. If I have ever done anything to offend,belittle, Or made anyone feel like I thought I was better than them... Would you please send me a message it can be public So that I may I apologize I'm being accused of this And if I have done this I'm not aware of it... So please let me know...thanks:)
How many incidents like this have to happen before we have a community backed investigation committe. Internal Affairs is a joke "Oh we will investigate ourselves" no wonder most of the time the police are not found at fault for their actions.
from the manifesto of Chris Dorner:I know most of you who personally know me are in disbelief to hear from media reports that I am suspected of committing such horrendous murders and have taken drastic and shocking actions in the last couple of days. You are saying to yourself that this is completely out of character of the man you knew who always wore a smile wherever he was seen. I know I will be vilified by the LAPD and the media. Unfortunately, this is a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name. The department has not changed since the Rampart and Rodney King days. It has gotten worse. The consent decree should never have been lifted. The only thing that has evolved from the consent decree is those officers involved in the Rampart scandal and Rodney King incidents have since promoted to supervisor, commanders, and command staff, and executive positions. The question is, what would you do to clear your name?
When Giggs made his MUFC debut: the Gulf War had been over for 2 days; Rodney King was a nobody; was 2 wks old; Freddie was alive
What's Going On, 1991? For the Class of 1991. -Jeffrey Dahmer is arrested after the remains of 11 men and boys are found in his Milwaukee, Wisconsin apartment. -Freddie Mercury, lead singer of the band Queen, issues a public statement confirming that he is stricken with AIDS, and the next day he dies of complications. Major loss! -Police Brutality Captured On Film in California in the case of Rodney King arrest. Why did I choose 1991? My friend, who owns a 91 acre horse farm with 7 others, just called to say hello.
Today I've learnt the significance of the Liberty Bell, who Rodney King was and what cognitive dissonance is.
your performance on was brilliant tonight. A deep episode that reminded us of Trayvon Martin and Rodney King.

Load of hay comin in the morn.This is from our site.Thoughts on unloading hay.Enjoy! Hay Sales: We spend effort selling hay, not because it’s the easiest way to earn a billion dollars, but because it is the easiest way for us to help our herd. Hay kicks my booty; get’s dust in my eyes and beats me down like Rodney King on his worst day… Just do the math; 40 lb bales, 40 ‘ connex box, 53’ trailer, the only two variables being temperature ( I pray for cool), and how much stuff’s going to get in your eyes. Throw in gravity and feel the burn. I know, this may sound like Chinese calculus, but let it suffice to say, that there are other, easier ways to reel in my next Lear jet payment, than being a hay distributor; right off the bat I’m thinking boxing or eye gouging contests; at the end of the day there’s going to be pain, but at least you won’t get hay in your eyes…! Regardless, the horses eat hay, and we’re happiest when they are, so it’s our desire to have the best hay (for them) tha ...
A modern American classic. And all the more resonant when you consider that L.A's infamous 'Rodney King riots' took place in the same city just one year later. Ice Cube and Cube Gooding Jr. (back when he was cool) star in a powerful coming-of-age film that inspired a host of brash, "inner-city gang…
it's a stunningly beautiful country but there are lots of police brutality around the world. Rodney King, Ian Tomlinson.
22 years ago, this month: In March 1991, Rodney King, a young Black man, was pulled over while driving in LA. Twenty LAPD and Highway Patrol officers flooded the scene as a police helicopter circled overhead. In the following minutes, at least seven of the cops mercilessly beat and tasered King, crushing the bones in his face, breaking his teeth and ankle, and causing numerous lacerations and internal injuries.

This is my buddy David Draper's letter to the Chattanooga Mayor. I have sent a similar one myself. Please take the few minutes to send one as well. This deserves some attention. mayoris the mayors email address and a copy of my letter I just watched the video of a man brutally beaten by Chattanooga cops/ The man never strikes at the cop, they tazer him repeatedly until he is terrified, while seven cops are in the room they repeatedly punch him in the face and take turns hitting him with clubs. Are you telling me that those two cops could not turn an unarmed man over to cuff him? Why are they not in jail charged with assault? What is wrong with the other cops that are doing nothing to stop this savagery? David Draper
