RIP Rodney King

1 Comment

I’ve been thinking about Rodney King , since the announcement of his death at 47, over the weekend.

 I couldn’t sleep last night, so many images about him kept coming to mind.

Here’s one of: many reports  this one from Huggington Press, about his life and the circumstances of his death.

What a troubled life this man must have led after the events of 1991, when he was assaulted by four  LA police officers.

I hope he finds some true peace now.

So tragic that his life was cut short, at such a young age.

RIP Rodney King.

You will never be forgotten
