    Rodney King Shot In San Bernardino

    Injuries are not life threatening................... .

    10:41 AM PST on Thursday, November 29, 2007

    By PAUL LAROCCO
    The Press-Enterprise

    Rodney King was apparently shot and wounded on a San Bernardino street corner late Wednesday night before biking home to Rialto to report the incident, police said.

    King, the 42-year-old man who gained national fame when his 1991 beating by Los Angeles police was caught on videotape, called Rialto police at 11:39 p.m. to report the shooting, said Sgt. Don Lewis.

    He had been struck in the face and arm with a shotgun, Lewis said. King reported that the shooting occurred at 5th Street and Meridian Avenue in San Bernardino, just east of the Rialto city line.

    After police arrived at King's Jackson Street home, King and others inside appeared intoxicated, Lewis said, and few were cooperative in providing information.

    Rialto officers contacted San Bernardino police to take over the investigation. King was then taken to a local hospital, where his condition is unknown this morning. The wounds were not believed to be life-threatening, Lewis said.

    No further information on what caused the shooting was available. Since gaining his fame, King has had several brushes with Inland police agencies, most recently a 2005 arrest on suspicion of domestic violence.

    Lemme guess: some rogue element from LAPD/LASO/Any LEA just drove by and shot da man. It's all the cops' fault since his felonious mopery all those years ago.

    Meanwhile, somewhere in SB, a dealer is saying, "jackass just tried to roll with my dope so I solved the problem!"

    Of course it happened near me...everything seems to happen in San Bernardino! I guess that's why it's rated in the top 20 for crime rate

    I guess the money from the lawsuit didn't last long. Some old habits never die, just back to the corner to sling rocks..."Thug Life"
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    it is just a shame not one bullet was fatal
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
