Rodney King was found dead on father's day in the wake of the a.m. by his fiancee at the bottom of their pool. Just in case your wondering who Rodney King is, he is the black man that was the center of the L.A. riots in 1991. King was nearly beaten to death by several officers. The situation heightened when the video tape surfaced of the officers repeatedly assaulting an unresponsive King. When the courts overturned a not guilty verdict, a riot uprooted in Los Angeles. Rodney King will be best remember for his  quote, "Can We All Just Get Along". Wow, my condolences are with the family of the late Rodney King. Here is the story as TMZ reported it.
