Looking at the Second Rodney King Trial

Judiciary experts have said that it is not lawful for the four police officers acquitted in the Rodney King case to be tried again for the same offense. If another jury is shown the complete tape, isn't it likely that the men will be acquitted again? Is it more than possible that in the case of acquittal, riots will be far more devastating than what we have already seen?

Are we to be swayed by Rodney King plaintively asking if we can get along? Before more time passes and before more damage is done, may we have a complete account? The media are not being honest with the public and not serving us all the facts - only 90 seconds. Jacqueline MacDermott, Bangor, Maine
