Martin Luther King, Jr. was an inspiration to millions around the world, but Rodney King just made people riot. Let’s face it, Rodney King is an idiot. Don’t get me wrong, he didn’t deserve to get his ass kicked by the LAPD. However, some would argue that he needs an ass-kicking now more than ever. Yesterday, he was driving in his SUV at high-speeds and the proceeded to crash into a pole, a fence, and somebody’s house! All this while intoxicated! You would think that a guy that got a nearly $4 million dollar settlement from the city would have gotten his life together–some therapy, maybe an education, a career, a volunteer job, or well, something. Instead, his hobby appears to be driving at high-speeds while drunk. Some people never learn.

  1. Just because someone does something stupid, doesn’t mean that they ARE stupid. Some of the most intelligent people in history, geniuses of all kinds, have been self-destructive and even clinically psychotic. There are many geniuses who never (directly) hurt a fly; Einstein, Da Vinci, Marx (in my opinion, Communism notwithstanding), and others I can’t think of at the moment. Oh, and it was Martin Luther King Jr. People always get that confused.
