Stacey Koon

Cop In Rodney King Beating

Now Drives a Limo

EXCLUSIVE

Stacey Koon -- the former LAPD sergeant who did prison time for zapping Rodney King with a taser -- has changed careers -- he's now driving a limo.

An independent photog got Koon driving a limo for Music Express, the high-end private transport company. Koon, who was leaving LAX, scoffed at the photog, who asked if he had a reaction to Rodney King's death.

Koon was acquitted in the Simi Valley beating trial back in 1992 -- and the acquittal triggered the L.A. riots. He was later convicted in federal court of civil rights violations and served 30 months in prison.

The beating occurred nearly 22 years ago. So we gotta ask.

Seriously, the guys name is Koon? Funny. He looks like a member of the Aryian Nation. I'll bet they love that name.

you know, the lines on a face tell a lot about who a person is, and how long they've been that way.....the permanent down-turn of this man's mouth, the furrow in his brow.....speaks volumes

Well, nice to know should I ever need a limo from LAX, not to hire a company who has convicts with anger issues working for them.

Makes sense now. He was named Stacey. He's filled with self hate and took it out on Rodney. And his last really took him over the edge. Quite simple really!

Are there really people who DON"T think Rodney King should've received that beat down for being all hopped up on drugs and resisting arrest?
