CNN just announced that Rodney King was found dead at the bottom of his pool a few hours ago.

I'm sure he was geeked out on some heavy drug, just like when he got his ass kicked for resisting arrest. :oh_no:

Thats sad.

He seemed like the only one on the rehab tv show who really gave a shit.

I always thought he was high on PCP when they stopped him. Wikipedia and Cnn say he wasn't. If he was I thought he was lucky the police didn't just shoot him until he stopped moving, Im sure that was protocol a few years earlier. If he wasn't high on Pcp it's a shame this video didn't come out earlier:

That video was brilliant.

The Chris Rock video, not the Rodney King beating.

good grief, a black person finally gets the courage to go in the swimming pool, and this is what happens

it just doesn't seem right

Saw him not that long ago in a doc about the riots, he said it was surreal to be back in the spot where he was beaten( and if you believe he was on drugs then I have a couple of US Kizuna Encounter carts I have to sell to you dirt cheap ) and talked about each minute of the whole thing.

RIP Rodney

Because no black man has ever been on drugs and caught by police...

Actually he's been sober for a few years.
Just read a fantastic interview about him a few months ago where he discussed his relatively new clean life.

Well that's too bad then. I wonder how he drowned.

Possible explanation:

Given his past lifestyle, even if he was successfully sober, he might have weakened his body to the point he had a mild cardiac episode, etc, that temporarily incapacitated him and being in the pool, without anyone watching over you, voila: a recipe for disaster.
