Rodney King Dead at 47

Rodney King, the man whose brutal beating by four white Los Angeles police officers in 1991, along with the controversial acquittal of the officers, spurred violent riots a year later, was found dead Sunday in an apparent drowning accident at his home in Rialto, California. Police are still investigating but suspect no foul play.
