    Rodney King Found Dead at 47.

    Rodney King Dead at 47 | TMZ.com

    ​CLICK LINK FOR FULL STORY.



    Rodney King -- the man who was at the center of the infamous Los Angeles riots -- was found dead this morning in Rialito, CA. He was 47.

    According to our sources, King's fiancée found him dead at the bottom of a pool.

    Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they responded to a call at 5:25 AM PT. We're told they physically removed King from the pool and attempted CPR.

    Our sources say he was pronounced dead at 6:11 AM.

    Stand by. The TMZ story comments have some pretty idiotic statements in it; mostly with anti law enforcement rhetoric.

    Those terrible cops should be fired! They're so terrible, trying CPR. Thugs.

    Another tragic loss to society. The real tragedy is that this asshat will get more press than any soldier that has died defending his country, or officer that sacrificed their life in the line of duty. We sure live in an F'd-up world!

    I remember watching the riots. I was off the night it started and the whole shift that was working that night was at my house at one time or another watching. You had to figure he was not going to be around long the way he lived.

    I was a senior in high school when the riots happened. A bunch of idiots in the school started jumping around, shouting and trying to bring the riots home. Fortunately they were dealt with immediately and harshly.

    Talked to soje west coast cops shortly after the incident. They were in IA and saw the WHOLE TAPE. The defense wasn't allowed to play the whole tape, so they swaid. Kinds a believe them, knowing California justice. Anywho, no big loss to mankind, however, the big loss is that they have to drain the pool and waste all that water.

    My first shift as a shift supervisor was the night of the riots. The Asst. Chief called me into his office , handed me a sergeant's badge and said " Congratulations your the shift supervisor tonite and oh by the way , we're on riot alert."

    It's pretty disheartening to hear negative things said about him. He was an addict, plain and simple. We've seen enough of them, I would think to garner our sympathy more than vitriol.

    No doubt he was a victim of his addiction. It's very sad and tragic- like so many addictions end.

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."

    To say that Rodney's only problem was his "addiction" is pretty naive. But just talking about his "addiction", its hard to have any compassion for someone who CHOSE that addiction and caused so much pain and suffering for so many.
