Rodney King with his Anniversary book The Riot Within. He told Laurence O'Donnell on the Last Word that he was lucky that someone took a video and sad that the same did not happen to Trayvon Martin. Since the beating, the acquittal of those that almost killed him, the LA riots which followed, he says he has had a good life in the U.S. He also won a civil judgement against the city of LA for close to $4 million. Now he has a book deal.
