I can remember that incident & my outrage as though it's yesterday. Sadly he continued to have a troubled life. I hope he's at peace now. RIP Mr King.

Just saw an article that said 911 was called at 5:25am after his finacÚ found him at the bottom of their swimming pool.

ugh, a good reminder to never read comments on major news stories (from the Yahoo article I just read, not the one linked here - I'm done with them).

A troubled man who never intended to become a symbol, and remained as flawed as he was before 1991. May he truly rest in peace.

Like it was his fault that the LA riots started. :rolleyes:

Even though I was only a child, I can still remember the video vividly. I can't imagine the post-traumatic stress that King suffered--first the beating, then the outrageous verdict, then the guilt from knowing his verdict incited the riots.

I hope this was just an accident, and so far there are no signs it wasn't.

Did anyone else see the interview done w/him a few months ago for the 20th(?) Anniversary of all of this? The thing that hit me the most was his eyes. That poor man's eyes were so haunted and filled w/pain, I wanted to reach through the screen and give him a hug. :(

May he now have found the peace he so badly needed here on Earth, in Heaven.

He was a troubled man before the riots and for years after, I hope now he has found peace.
