Rodney King Dead at 47: Cause of Death From Accidental Drowning?

I was just thinking about him and the LA Riots a couple of days ago. I was not expecting this today. The last time I was actively following what he was doing was when he was on Celeb Rehab a few years ago and it was on that show that I saw a different side to the man. He wasn't anything like he had been made out to be from the news. I really thought he had the best chance of beating his addiction. Not the best way to go out at all. Bummer. Was he perfect? Far from it? Was he guilty of driving under the influence that night? Yup. Did he deserve the savage beating that came of it? No way.

RIP dude.

No joke and not intended to be taken as a joke, but from time to time without even thinking about it I will shout out "Can't we all just get along" when the occasion seems most appropriate as I am sure most people still utter that now famous line in their own lives as well.

I'm surprised by this too. I saw him a few weeks back on one the news show and agree, nothing like the man we saw back in the beating.

RIP
