Rodney Glen King (April 2, 1965 – June 17, 2012) was an American construction worker who became well known after being beaten harshly by Los Angeles police officers during a traffic stop on March 3, 1991. George Holliday, a resident in the nearby area, witnessed the beating and videotaped much of it from the balcony of his nearby apartment.
It's not all in the family, Rodney King's family reportedly has not invited finacee Cynthia to the funeral and doesn't plan to. The family is skeptical about the assumed cause of death and won't make any decisions until it is made official. http://twitter.com/#!/thehotzoneusa http://www.facebook.com/TheHotZoneUsa
