More Rodney King


Another reader notes:

Your “offended” e-mailer got one major detail wrong. Rodney King was not alone. His passenger, also an African-American, listened to the instructions of the police and was not harmed at the least. It is an often ignored fact by those who claim the police were seeking opportunities to assault minorities. Rodney King may have been mistreated (I believe he was) but it was not action against a random african-american, but against one who had blatantly broken the law and refused to submit peacefully to arrest.
