As you may recall, in 1991, Rodney King suffered skull fractures and brain and kidney damage from a beating by Los Angeles police officers after a traffic stop.   The acquittal of 3 officers involved in the beating led to riots that took 55 lives and caused a $1 billion in property damages.  After a civil suit, king received a $3.8 million damage award from the city.  Since that time, he has experienced substance abuse problems and  has had one run-in with the law after another.  CNN.com has the full story.  Read more:
