Stacey Koon

Cop In Rodney King Beating

Now Drives a Limo

EXCLUSIVE

121012_stacy_koon_launch
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.

This dirtbag was still doing drugs 20 years later. He got what he deserved. How many peoples lives including the cops were put in danger because of his drunk car chase.

He was a cop helping the community. Rodney King, the LA4 Football Williams who almost killed Reginald Denny and beat up many Asians during the riots are the real problem. The cop should have shot these worthless hoods

This man is my hero !!!! Rodney King was useless human being and served no purpose while here on earth but to do drugs, have illegimate kids and cause damage and despair everywhere he went. Sounds like most people in the hood actually.

The nation saw 3 minutes if an incident that included an assault on a female officer, drunk driving, reckless driving, felony evading, and resisting arrest. Although it appeared to be police brutality, a police "swarming technique" is hard to watch as we had no audio to refer to, just media speculation. So this one Jackass got his millions and still blew most of it. What an outstanding citizen he was.

Sergeant Koon did not do anything wrong. He was f-d by the system. Rodney King would not have been tased if he had just pulled over, and obeyed the lawful commands of the officers.
