Rodney King (1991)

“CAN’T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG”- Rodney King

Now I must admit…. Rodney King is no saint…not even close…but how bad do you have to be to get your ass whooped like he did? I mean being a young black man, I go through the normal DWB shit (driving while black) and I already know that some of these boys in blue, just from the way they talk and attempt to intimidate me, would love nothing more than to give me a fresh lump or two. So I ask why give them a reason? You see, what a lot a folks never knew is that when the police tried to pull Mr king over, who actually was drunk at the time, he took the boys in blue on a high-speed chase because he knew he was violating his parole and didn’t want to go back to prison…now if there is one thing I know it’s if you make the cops run, their bringing an ass whoopin with them…Mr King gave them too many reasons. Luckily thanks to some great amateur video we all got to see Mr.king get his ass whooped, for the first “documented” time.

After watching the video you would assume it should be a clear case of excessive force at the least…but guess what happens to the L.A.P.D. police officers? Yup nothing…and you know why? Cuz the LAPD was pulling strings like a mutha…after switching the judge, moving to a new courthouse and changing the jury pool to 10 whites, 1 hispanic and 1 asian the officers involved were home free. But the whole world was paying attention by now and given the LAPD’s shady history, los angelens were not about to have this deed go unpunished. So in 1992 when the officers were acquited, the people of Los Angeles took matters into their own hands and all hell broke loose….Where Were You?

After DMX completes his Arizona Prison bid he will back in public view. X will join the cast of VH1’s Celebrity Rehab and spend 21 days of detoxification and group therapy in the L.A. area. I hope X really goes through with the treatment and cleans up his act, we need that old X back.
