So what does he have in common with Trayvon Martin?
Rodney King is a man who will not be soon forgotten. He was an average young man before the Los Angeles police beat him mercilessly in March 1991. The officers pulled him out of the car and beat him brutally. This act of extreme injustice came only to light when an amateur cameraman George Holliday caught it all on videotape.
