The Past Still Grips Rodney King

Kurt Streeter, Los Angeles Times, April 23, 2012

{snip}

It has been 20 years this month since rioting brought Los Angeles to its knees. A jury had acquitted four police officers in the beating of [Rodney] King, unleashing an onslaught of pent-up anger. There were 54 riot-related deaths and nearly $1 billion in property damage as the seams of the city blew apart.

King remembers. He rubs his right cheek, numb since the beating, and describes what it was like to be struck by batons, stung by Tasers.

“It felt,” he says, “like I was an inch from death.”

Later he confides that he is at peace with what happened to him.

“I would change a few things, but not that much,” he says. “Yes, I would go through that night, yes I would. I said once that I wouldn’t, but that’s not true. It changed things. It made the world a better place.”

He is 47 now—jobless and virtually broke. Gone is the settlement money he got after suing the city for violating his civil rights. All $3.8 million of it. Huge chunks went to the lawyers, he says, some to family members, some he simply wasted.

The settlement did provide a down payment on the inconspicuous rambler that is his home in Rialto. He says he cobbles together mortgage payments. Every so often he gets hired to pour concrete at a construction site. He has earned small paydays fighting in celebrity boxing matches. He received an advance—less than six figures, he says, but significant nonetheless—for allowing his story to be told in a book set to go on sale Tuesday: “The Riot Within: My Journey from Rebellion to Redemption.”

{snip}

He inhabits a world stocked with heartache and struggle. He calls himself a recovering addict but has not stopped drinking and possesses a doctor’s clearance for medical marijuana. He says he is happy and hopeful, content enough now to forgive the officers who beat him. But he tenses when they are mentioned and admits to being burdened by the weight of his name. He suffers nightmares, flashbacks and raw nerves that echo the symptoms of a shellshocked survivor of war.

{snip}

“I sometimes feel like I’m caught in a vise. Some people feel like I’m some kind of hero,” he says of the beating. “Others hate me. They say I deserved it. Other people, I can hear them mocking me for when I called for an end to the destruction, like I’m a fool for believing in peace.”

{snip}

Tall and broad-shouldered, King has a goatee and a short Afro that obscure some of the scars. He walks with a limp. He is polite but often seems timid and unsure. Sometimes he is insightful, other times boastful, but there are moments when he appears to drift.

That’s from the beating, he says. Brain damage.

His drinking and drugging and a few jarring traffic accidents hardly helped.

“There was the time my car went off the road and came to a stop on a tree,” he says, referring to a 2003 crash. Blood tests revealed PCP in his system.

“PCP ain’t no joke,” says King, who was ordered to rehab and spent a few weeks in jail. “That stuff really got its hooks into me for, oh, I think about a year.”

Some things unfailingly hold his attention. One is a large photograph above his fireplace. It is King, in a blue suit and a paisley tie, looking out at a pack of reporters.

“That’s me saying those words people still talk about,” he mutters. He says them, under his breath. “Can we all get along?”

{snip}

As to why he wouldn’t change what happened that night, he has a theory. True, the beating and the first trial led to deadly violence. It fills him with guilt. How can he not feel responsible for what some still call “the Rodney King riots”? Yet good came of it. The convictions of Koon and Powell, he says, the moral weight that pushed his call to “get along” deep into the public consciousness—these things helped change the world.

“A lot of people would have never had [a chance to succeed] if I had not survived that beating,” he says.

“Obama? Obama, he wouldn’t have been in office without what happened to me and a lot of black people before me. He would never have been in that situation, no doubt in my mind. He would get there eventually, but it would have been a lot longer. So I am glad for what I went through. It opened the doors for a lot of people . . . .”

{snip}

In junior high, King began drinking. As an adult, he was no angel. In 1989, he pleaded guilty to robbing a market in Monterey Park; the owner accused King of attacking him with a tire iron. King was given a two-year sentence.

The night of the beating, he hadn’t been out of jail very long. He had spent the evening drinking and watching TV with friends. Around midnight, he was caught speeding and led police on a chase that ended in Lake View Terrace. A test showed that King’s blood-alcohol level was slightly below the legal limit. The test was taken five hours after he’d been in custody, however, warranting estimates that it had been well above the legal limit while he was at the wheel.

{snip}

During the first decade after the riots, King started an unsuccessful hip-hop recording company, had a series of tempestuous romances and steadily ran into trouble.

Over the last 20 years, he has had repeated contact with law enforcement. He long ago stopped keeping track of his arrests for crimes such as driving under the influence and domestic assault.

“Eleven times?” he wonders. “Twelve?”

“Man, all this crap I put myself through, yeah it’s embarrassing,” says King, who pushed back into public view in 2008, when he joined the reality show “Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew.”

{snip}

His latest trouble came last summer. He was driving his beaten 1994 Mitsubishi Eclipse in Moreno Valley when a pair of Riverside County sheriff’s deputies pulled him over. They said he was swerving and had nearly hit another car. According to the official report, King was compliant and repeatedly replied, “Yes, Sarge” to one of the deputies.

Still, King’s rapid speech and a white paste on his mouth and tongue were noted. He was sweating heavily, his pulse raced, his hands shook and his eyes were bloodshot. He performed poorly in a series of sobriety tests. In his pocket, the report states, was a bottle filled with marijuana for which King had a medical license. Suspecting he was high, the deputies took him into custody.

{snip}

Tests showed that his alcohol level was nearly at the legal limit and that he had traces of marijuana in his blood. After pleading guilty to a “wet reckless” driving charge, he was put under house arrest and ordered to enroll in a drunk-driving program.

By his own account, his drinking continues, as does his pot smoking—medical marijuana offering physical relief from the headaches and pain he says he has suffered since the beating.

    You want to know who else is still gripping with the past?

    Reginald Denny.

    He’s making a marginal living in the boat business in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, his head and brain injuries preclude him from doing little else.  Last I heard, his attempts at civil rights lawsuits weren’t successful.

    • http://premiseblog.wordpress.com/ Dewey

      Yeah, I would love to go see this “Kurt Streeter” go interview Reginald Denny.  This reporter looks to be as white as he is black, so I hope he doesn’t just side with his Black side.

         With lighter complexioned blacks, many times it is a case of “Me thinks the lady doth protest too much.” Everyone from Michael Eric Dyson, to Obama, to Toure tries to “out-black” everyone else due to their bouts of insecurity.

    • Commenter

       You beat me to it. “Good came of it” eh Rodney? Tell that to Mr Denny.

    • diversity_is_a_hate_crime

      “For every degree of one that we help the negroes with social investments, diverting those scarce resources away from ourselves robs us of ten degrees of potential and destined greatness. The great Race Crime of History, indeed, a self inflicted hate crime, we have done to ourselves. Our own White children will curse our names.”

      -Rev. Jed DeValleyism, “We misread the Sermon on the Mount,” 1999

      Parton’s Gen. Butler in New Orleans, page 99:

      There has never been the slightest danger of an insurrection of the slaves. The real victim of slavery is the white man. Whatever little good there is in the system, the black man has had; while most of the evil has fallen to the white man’s share.

    • diversity_is_a_hate_crime

      Mr. Richard Grant, quoted in Helper’s NJOQUE, 1867:

      For years before the war, he had been one of our strongest anti-slavery men, and had by his writings done as much as any one person in the country, who was not a professed journalist or politician, to bring about the state of public feeling that provoked secession. I met him on his return home, and had not talked with him Three minutes before he said to me, I come back hating slavery more than ever, but loathing the negro with an unutterable loathing. What a a curse to have that people on our hands!

      ****

      As a “people,” we find that assertion highly offensive.  He should have said, “What a curse to have that Diversity on our hands!”

      Stuff Black People Don’t Like is a heroic blog with a terrible name. He offends people.  He should rename it “Stuff the Blacks Don’t Like”.

  • Hunter Morrow

    This dirtbag loser has had more undeserved ink spilled on his behalf than any dirtbag loser in history.

    When is the Rodney King b.s. going to go away? Guess what? It never is going away. It is the perfect little phrase for black rioting if a court case isn’t rigged for the blacks.

    “Find our way, or we riot.”

    Anybody else hoping that the blacks do riot? That 2012 is the year when people finally get sick and tired of blacks, put down a riot and end the gravy train for them? I think worse is better for now. I hope Zimmerman is entirely acquitted, not only because it is the right way to rule that case, but it would finally expose all these Sons and Daughters of Obama for what they truly are and could be a catalyst for real race reality in this country.

    • haroldcrews

      The only proper response to threats of riots/looting is a promise of shooting.

      • Rocky Bass

         I promise, as I live in the Houston area and my uncle still lives in the old family house over in the ghetto. If rioting seems to be spreading, I will be going over into Indian territory to see the house is not destroyed or my uncle harmed. I will be going “heavy” to say the least.

        • diversity_is_a_hate_crime

          From Hinton Rowan Helper’s NOJOQUE, 1867:

          Not to live together in close fellowship, as if they were of the same nature, not as the equals of each other, did God create the Horse and the Ass, the Sheep and the Goat; the Eagle and the Buzzard, the Swan and the Gull; the Whale and the Porpoise, the Shad and the Minnow; the Eel and the Snake, the Turtle and the Toad; the Cricket and the Cockroach, the Bee and the Bug; nor were White Men and Negroes placed upon the earth to be members of the same household, nor of the same community, nor even of the same continent.

        • Shawn_thefemale

           My sympathies for living in Houston. It’s the only place I’ve seen worse than Atlanta.

  • razorrare

    Surprized at all the sympathy for “poster boy Denny”…you know his name well because it is the MSM that made him their useful tool…it was Denny who hugged his attackers’ Mothers in court and told them he understood why they had smashed a brick onto his head and told the judge he wished leniency for his attackers…this is what we Whites got to see for weeks and months…never did the MSM trot out the victims relatives who hjad to bury their dead or those victims families whose loved ones were physically permanently damaged,one to be left in a total vegetative state…not once did the media give the names of all the victims in the ensuing riots that had died(over 50).No,what you got to see was Denny,the groveling little liberal,saying he understood why he was attacked,and why over 50 others were killed.If McCain had a son it would like like Denny.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jean-Deux/1540915347 Jean Deux

       I find Denny to be more dispicable than R King.  He is the poster boy for white guilt, complete with the brick in the side of the head

    • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

       Was hugging his assailants a stupid thing to do?  Yes.

      Did Reginald Denny promulgate the same mentality that got his head bashed in?  Yes.

      Do groveling white liberals turn me off big time?  Yes.

      Having said all that, he didn’t deserve bricks smashed on his head.  It’s not a “crime” to be a stupid white liberal groveling panderer such that the punishment should be that sort of battery.

  • Impertinent

    ” Gone is the settlement money he got after suing the city for violating his civil rights. All $3.8 million of it…”

    Yea….lawyers…right. PCP, Crack, booze, coke and Mary Jane are more like it. Typical dope….he had enough to last him the rest of his stupid life. $3.8 mill at 85K a year would have lasted this loser for 45 years.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Wayne-Leon-Engle/1625710108 Wayne Leon Engle

    I read two pages of the original article, then stopped in order to avoid vomiting on my keyboard.

    After all the turmoil, deaths, property damage, ad nauseum, this creep caused by running from the police that night, and all the scrapes and trouble he’s been in since then, the L.A. Times has the brazen effrontery to publish an in-depth, sympathetic interview with him, implying that he’s the poor, innocent victim of “White racist cops”?!

    “Still stupid after all these years.” Apply that to either King, or the L.A. Times, as you wish. Matter of fact, it applies to BOTH of them.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XJ3PDTMXOPAUKGQ62S7MU2BNIA Cecil

    Good point about Reginald Denny.

    If the news isnt useful for propaganda it goes down the memory hole.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jean-Deux/1540915347 Jean Deux

    was he  issued a permanent  “get out of  jail free” card as part of the settlement?

  • razorrare

    Would like to see a video version of this interview…King is not capable of putting together a coherant sentence or thought.Me thinks the L.A. intertviewer  did a little dressing up(editing)of Kings comments.It was always my contention that it was someone other than Rodney King who came up with the sound bite,”Cant we all get along.” and passed it along to Rodney to say to the masses.

    • diversity_is_a_hate_crime

      From Hinton Rowan Helper’s NOJOQUE, 1867:

      Weak in mind, frail in morals, torpid and apathetic in physique, the negro, wherever he goes, or wherever he is seen, carries upon himself, in inseparable connection with abjectness and disgrace, such glaring marks of inferiority as are no less indelible and conspicuous than the base blackness of his skin. Upon this point, all the records of the past, all the evidences of the present, all the prognostications of the future, are plain and positive. In the long catalogue of the great names of the world names which, whether they have caused nations to tremble with fear and suspense, to quiver with awe and admiration, to laugh with satisfaction and delight, or to weep with innonocent sadness and love there does not appear the cognomen of a single negro! To overlook the ponderous significance of this fact, to gainsay it, to wink it or to blink it, let no unworthy attempt be made.

      In nothing that ennobles mankind has any negro ever distinguished himself. For none of the higher walks of life has he ever displayed an aptitude. To deeds of true valor and patriotism, he has always proved recreant. Over none of the wide domains of Agriculture, Commerce, nor Manufactures, has any one of his race ever won honorable mention. Within the classic precincts of Art, Literature and Science, he is, and forever will be, utterly unknown.

  • bluffcreek1967

    Not once has Rodney King publically stated that the 1992 riots, the destruction of massive amounts of property and the injuries and deaths of many people could have been avoided had he simply pulled his car over and complied with officers at the scene. He was a criminal at heart prior to the riots, and even after all the tragic loss of life and property, he still couldn’t manage to abandon his criminal ways! According to the article, he can’t even remember how many times he’s been arrested for DUI and domestic violence!? Yet Blacks still hail this foolish, empty man as their ‘hero.’

    Lest one think that Rodney King’s criminal pattern is unique or rare, the truth is a large percentage of Black males conduct their lives in exactly this manner. The only difference is they are not filmed when contacted by the police nor are they made the poster child for ‘racial profiling’ or ‘police abuse’ as King was.

    • Impertinent

      Bravo….yes indeed…it’s always…”da man” that makes them crack addicts and scumbags. Never…never accept responsibility for your own actions.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Never…never accept responsibility for his own actions.

        As summed up by this statement:

        There was the time my car went off the road and came to a stop on a tree,  he says, referring to a 2003 crash.

        He wasn’t driving the car, of course, the car up and did this all on its own!!

      As a retired newspaperman, I always thought that if I had been a reporter in Los Angeles, then after the riots and all the other turmoil from the Rodney King incident were over, I would have hunted up that civilian — almost certainly a White liberal — who left his home to come and video the “beating” (so-called) of Rodney King by the police, and then leaked it to a local TV station, igniting this firestorm.

       And if I succeeded in finding him, and he agreed to be interviewed, I’d have asked him, “If you had known, when you left your house with your video camera that night, that what you were about to do would lead to all these deaths, destruction, and hatred, would you have done it anyway?” I’d have loved to hear his reply to that question.

       But of course no mainstream media reporter would even think of asking a question like that, and even if he had, no mainstream media editor or news director would have even considered putting it into print or on the air. It would have spoiled all the self-righteous race baiters and limousine liberals’ brandy and cigars. To paraphrase Rhett Butler.

      • KenelmDigby

        I seem to remember he was a White plumber by the name of ‘Holliday’.
        He got a cash reward from the TV station for his tape – which was his main motivation.

  • Detroit_WASP

    His trouble concentrating, speaking, holding down a job is all from the beating he received?  It has nothing to do with the weed, PCP and alcohol he ingests?  Has nothing to do with the concussions he received when he wrecks his car or falls down in a druken stupor?    

    Whitey has ruined another king of Egypt!  D@mn you blue-eyed devils.  LOL

    ……………………………………..

    Let’s start with the obvious . . .  you have to have a brain to begin with.  My impression of Rodney is that he’s dumber than the average negro . . . which means his IQ is probably far less than the average of 80.  So whatever occupies the space between his ears is not “brains.”

    It’s most likely a soggy mass of bone, unchewed bits of chicken wings, maybe a set of car keys and probably a plastic baggie or two that went up his snout when doing a line.

    A billion dollars in damages, hundreds wounded and injured and 54 dead . . . and good old Rodney just keeps trucking along.  Hasn’t changed a bit.

    I’m sure we’ll soon hear that he was found dead under an overpass and that will be the end of Rodney. 

    Isn’t diversitywonderful?

  • ncpride

    One only has to read the comments section of the orginal article to get a feel for how America feels about Rodney King. He really should just shut up and go away.

  • JohnEngelman

    There really are some liberals who think black ghetto riots are “a wake up call for the problems of the inner city.” 

     More than any other single factor the urban riots that happened from 1964 to 1968 turned the United States into a Republican country. Whites noticed that the riots ended abruptly with the inauguration of Richard Nixon. 

    • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

       But it didn’t stop AA and other Great Society programs from being enacted.  In fact, the historical thinking is that these programs were the buy off to the black community.  Nixon put them into action, intentionally for this result.  What followed were the various programs playing out and producing the repeated failures and fatherless children that led to things like the crack and gang explosion of the 1980s.  The rest is history, and it is repeating itself, but bigger and badder than ever.

  • bluffcreek1967

    Yeah, I can just see the movie now: The opening scene will show Rodney returning home from his church’s Bible study and wearing a shirt and tie. Soon, he’ll be stopped by ‘da raciss po-lice’ for absolutely no reason. Of course, Rodney will be shown as docile and compliant while the racist White LAPD officers (all with southern accents) beat him just because he happens to be Black. After the beating and while at the hospital, Rodney will be shown praying for the White officers. Eventually, after the trial and riots, Rodney returns to college and secures his degree. Finally, he goes into ‘civil rights’ work and travels the country mentoring ‘disadvantaged youth.’ It will have all the facts and historical accuracy as the 70′s docu-drama ‘Roots.’

  • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

     Maybe Sandra Bullock can do a “Rodney Come Back” film about the misunderstood black man and his onetime white girlfriend who tried to help him, finding him again today and renewing her unending effort to save him?

  • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

     That’s why Dylan quit the Lefty, Folkie scene.  He knew it then and didn’t want to be used.

    Having said all that, he didn’t deserve bricks smashed on his head. It’s not a “crime” to be a stupid white liberal groveling panderer such that the punishment should be that sort of battery.

    I agree,Denny didnt “deserve bricks smashed on his head” by blacks who hate the White man. On the other hand,in a hypothetical scenario,where one or more of the 50+ dead victims family took bricks and smashed them on Denny’s head,i would not be so agreeable to say that Denny did not deserve to have “bricks smashed on his head.”

    Yes,it is not a “crime” to be a stupid White liberal groveling panderer such that the punishment should be that sort of battery. Yet,it would appear that it is a “crime” to be a racially concious White conservative who will not grovel or pander to other racial groups and their supporters in academia ,the workplace, electronic & printed media(MSM).It could be argued that their punishment is much more harsh than that meted out to Denny by blacks who would have smashed bricks on a White newborn baby,if one had been available at the time.I am sure Mr.Taylor and a myriad of other writers can testify more eloquently to that than I.Destroying peoples careers & reputation and making their children suffer for it is pretty harsh.
