Interestingly how your text sounds like all Rodney King trouble started after the incident and somehow his subsequent death is related to it.

Rodney King at the time of those event already was a convicted robber who lead the policy on a high speed chase because he was drink driving.

King endangered the public first by drink-driving and then by running from the police at high speed.

The riot itself was an act of racism, racism of Black people against White people (at least this is what your description of it clearly shows).
