20 years ago today, the world was captivated by the brutal videotaped beat-down of troubled human being Rodney King, by the out of control and rogue element in the Los Angeles Police department.(Source)

The incident was caught on tape by private citizen amateur photographer George Holliday who awoke to the sounds of police sirens outside his Lake View Terrace apartment., and broadcast to the world by local station KTLA.(KTLA)

The videotaped Gang Jolly-Stomping by the LAPD on Rodney King on March 3, 1991, and the subsequent trial and acquittal of the LAPD officers, would set off the L.A. Riots more than a year later.(HuffPo)

Many citizens at the time openly expressed their support for the brutal beat down administered by the police officers to a certain segment of society, and continue to support such illegal actions by the police department.

In 20 years, we have come to learn that these beatings and this behavior was sanctioned by the police department and openly encouraged by the former chief of police, Darryl Gates.(Source)

The acquittal of the four officers in this illegal assault has been widely seen as the cause of the devastating L.A. riots which broke out April 29, 1992, when a jury acquitted all four of the rogue and brutal racist KKKops!(Source)

After a few days of anarchy in the city, on May 1, 1992, the third day of the L.A. riots, King appeared in public before television news cameras and made his most famous plea and appeal to the public for peace, that has resonated in the hearts and minds of the citizens of L.A., and will for many generations to come…

…”People, I just want to say, you know, can we all get along? Can we get along? Can we stop making it, making it horrible for the older people and the kids?…It’s just not right. It’s not right. It’s not, it’s not going to change anything. We’ll, we’ll get our justice….They won the battle, but they haven’t won the war….Please, we can get along here. We all can get along. I mean, we’re all stuck here for a while. Let’s try to work it out. Let’s try to beat it. Let’s try to beat it. Let’s try to work it out.(VIDEO)

When all the chaos subsided, in total,55 people had been killed, 2,000 injured,more than 7,000 fires, damages to 3,100 businesses, and about $1 billion in damage had devastated the South Central area and many communities in the Los Angeles area, changing the face of Los Angeles forever.

…and truck driver Reginald Denny that was dragged out of the cab of his truck and beat by a rampaging mob, was left with severe injuries causing him permanent damage.(VIDEO)

Have we learned anything, and do we like each other any better?(Source)

...lets all just get along and love each other...

...lets all just get along and love each other...

..and can we all just get along?No human being can survive unscathed a brutal beat down like that, and it is better for the police to not act like criminals, and follow the law.

…set the example!…what do you think???
