Again and again police violence against black people in the USA

53 dead after riots

The case with the most serious consequences dates back to March 1991. Four freeway police officers beat the drunk and fast-moving Rodney King († 47) after a chase in Los Angeles. The initial acquittal for the police triggered riots, which resulted in 53 deaths and property damage of over $ 1 billion. King received millions in compensation. King was known to the police for a robbery, and after the incident he came into conflict again with the drug and violence. He drowned in a pool in 2012 under the influence of drugs.
