Rodney King

Leonard & Mumia: If only they'd had iPhones back then!

"Why can't we all just get along?" asked Rodney King back in 1991, after he had been savagely beaten by four Los Angeles cops. That's a really good question, Rodney. But an even better question might be, "Why wasn't Rodney King thrown in jail forever with no hope of parole -- like what happened to Mumia Abu-Jamal?"

Quick question, quick answer -- someone had a videotape recorder up and running on the day that King was being beaten so badly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sb1WywIpUtY No one had a videotape recorder up and running back in Mumia's day.
