I obviously still think about that night. I still have some pretty bad headaches from that beating. But I don’t let anger take over when the pain comes. It doesn’t help anything.Rodney King • Speaking in an April interview with the Daily Beast near the 20th anniversary of the riots his case generated. King underwent years of physical therapy after the beating by police, which left brain injuries. “I can remember one of the officers kicking me in the head and saying ‘n——r’ again and again,” he said. “That’s something you can’t forget, particularly today when so many similar things seem to be happening.” King died Sunday at the age of 47, according to TMZ — and also confirmed by Reuters.
