Rodney King, 47, the world's first viral video star, was found dead over the weekend at the bottom of his swimming pool in the backyard of his Rialto, CA home. To this point, his death has been called an apparent accidental drowning.
So the victim of 1991's brutal police beat-down, and symbolic influence of 1992's L.A. race riots has perished. He leaves behind his fiancee Cynthia Kelley, three daughters, and his immortal words of inspiration that shook the American public: "Can't We All Get Along?"
Opinions among the American public have been considerably divisive when it comes to issues regarding King. And the news of his death has been no different.
Curious testimonies from Kelley and neighbors, as well as reasons for doubt brought forth by King’s friends and family, have generated public skepticism. However this skepticism is justified, as there are several discrepancies and questions that have yet to be answered.
Here are a few examples of what sounds fishy in the Rodney King investigation.
