Armed National Guardsmen, South Central Los Angeles, California (Photo by Visions of America/UIG via Getty Images),FILE - This March 31, 1991 image made from video shot by George Holliday shows police officers beating a man, later identified as Rodney King. The shooting of an unarmed black teen by Ferguson, Mo., police over the weekend has drawn comparisons to high-profile racially charged cases around the country. Police did not kill King, but his case looms over all that have followed and the grainy video of him curled up on the ground became a national symbol of police brutality.
