The AP, via CBS reported:
Rodney King, whose beating by police officers in 1991 was captured on videotape, exacerbating racial tensions in Los Angeles, has been found dead. He was 47.
King famously said during the riots that his beating generated, "Can we all get along? Can we get along? Can we stop making it horrible for the older people and the kids?"
Police said they have found no evidence of foul play. Certainly will be more to come.
