Can't We All Just Get Along: RIP Rodney King

So as most of the world already knows, Rodney King was found dead yesterday in his swimming pool.  20 years ago King's vicious beating by several LAPD officers and their eventually acquittal sparked what is now known as the L.A riots. 

No matter how you feel about the situation preceding King's beating I think we can all agree that there is no reason for MULTIPLE officers to beat an unarmed man, it's just not right.   So maybe today we can all try to live by King's unrealistically optimistic dream and "just get along"
