Can't We All Just Get Along ... He Does Now

Here's an unexpected Father's Day present, Rodney King is no longer with us.
From Fox News:
Rodney King, key figure in LA riots, found dead
[...]King's fiancé called 911 at 5:25 a.m. to report that she found him at the bottom of the swimming pool at their home in Rialto, Calif., police Lt. Dean Hardin said.

Officers arrived to find King in the water and unresponsive, with no signs of foul play. He was transported to Arrowhead Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:11 a.m, Hardin said.

The San Bernardino County coroner will perform an autopsy within 48 hours.
No photos. Just about everything this man did was a waste of breath.

With the punk that was shot acting as Zero's son, perhaps this great icon of American black culture could be Zero's father? At least his new found family isn't here illegally.

Why can't we all just tread water?

Some how we all knew his story would end like this.

All too often this is the end of the story.

Tragic? Of course.
Avoidable? Of course.
Inevitable? Probably.

Fragdan - hooah!

Again, I weep inside knowing that the people here dancing with glee upon this man's grave claim to be Christians.

Matthew 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

--Father Stephen
