Rodney King’s videotaped beating by L.A. police was broadcast around the world.  At the height of the riots that followed, he made a now well-known plea for peace.

(King) “I just wanna say, you know, can we, can we all get along?  Can we, can we get along?”

King’s fiance called police, telling them she had found him at the bottom of a pool at his L.A. home.  No immediate signs of foul play reported.  Rodney King was 47.

His book, “The Riot Within,” was just published this year.
