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.

I dont see whats the problem. King did provoke the attack but starting a fight but they just took it to another level. So I dont see why people are mean towards him but treat King as a sweetheart. Come on everbody knows that King was always an ass but treated him like his an angel. And im not trying to defend this guy either but come on.

All King had to do was pull over and comply.

King didn't comply and many died.

You guys will talk about anything. Who gives a **** about this guy? Certainly not your typical viewer who is probably wondering what the hell you are talking about. Should we forgive him?? Stupid. Why even dredge this up? Crap like this makes you seem so desperate. Sometimes you guys are just embarrassing.

King was a piece of $**t who did absolutely nothing with his life but abuse drugs. The shame of all of it was that the settlement money allowed him to sustain his habit. Everyone seems to forget that King was is jacked up on PCP while operating a vehicle reckless and endangering everyone else on the highway. Not to mention being combative with police while resisting arrest. I wish the turd would have od earlier in life and saved us from a BS lawsuit.

He gave that black mother f*cker exactly what he deserved. POS was driving WHILE HIGH ON PCP. Luckily he didn't kill anyone...then it would have been a much different story.

He's probably Eddie Murphy driver. All that time with LAPD I'm sure he knows where all the Transsexuals hand out.
