Rodney King, penniless in LA again.
Rodney King is 47 now, jobless and virtually broke. Gone is the settlement money he got after suing the city for violating his civil rights. All $3.8 million of it. Huge chunks went to the lawyers, he says, some to family members, some he simply wasted.
The settlement did provide a down payment on his home in Rialto. He says he cobbles together mortgage payments. Every so often he gets hired to pour concrete at a construction site.
