Rodney King Finally Going to Kick a COP’S Ass


rodneykingA mere 17 years after he was brutally — and unfairly — beaten by some Los Angeles police officers, leading to near-catastrophic riots in LA, Rodney King is ready for revenge. As part of a charity boxing tournament, he will finally get a chance to fight back against the police, taking on a Philadelphia cop.

Fresh off stints on VH1’s “Sober Living” and “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew,” King is primed to make this fight count, insisting it will be totally legit.

“I take this very seriously,” King stated in a press release. “Never felt better — physically and in the mind.”

“I know some people will see the irony here . . . But I would have fought anyone who was worthy.”

I think the more accurate statement is “I would have fought anyone, so long as I was getting paid.” but either way, Rodney gets to finally take a swing BACK at a cop and I for one am only sad it took 17 years.

Simon Aouad, the police officer King will be up against is no angel himself. Arrested in 2006 and charged with drug possession, delivery and paraphernalia, Aouad had attracted attention when an intruder tried to break in and Aouad chased him away with multiple gunshot. This way the crowd won’t feel bad rooting against a hometown cop, I like it, smart move by whoever organized this thing.

The fight will be on September 12, in Philadelphia and also on the card will be Scott Cummings whose sole claim to celebrity is that at different points he was the bodyguard for Michael Jackson and Donald Trump. Now THAT’s a resume!
