Just another stupid Nigger that never learned his lesson the first time


As bad as Rodney was treated in California, he should have left there and Never returned. I can easily believe that he will continue to have mental issues because of being hit so many times to the head. I do Not know whether drinking help him to cope, but being under the influence whether it be alcohol or prescription drugs is a combination for disaster that might other innocent people getting seriously injured or killed. Hopefully at some point, Mr. King will find some peace from the infamous trauma that had dogged his life!!
