so what would makes a real difference? a proper police conduct and following department policy. none of these officers followed the law and department policy. Rodney King was a scumbag for driving recklessly thru neighborhoods but what police officers did was worse. They're worse than scumbags. They were the reason why LA was a very hostile place to be at that time. And it took Rodney King to change that.
Would you like to point out the contradictions???
