Moral Uncertainty: Inside the Rodney King Juries (Paperback)
In 1991 the world recoiled from a shocking videotape showing white Los Angeles police officers brutally beating a black man caught speeding on the freeway. A jury's failure to convict them of excessive use of force triggered the worst urban rioting in U.S. history. A year later, a federal jury looking at the same facts found two officers guilty of violating Rodney King's civil rights while exonerating two others. Twenty-five years later, Moral Uncertainty tells the story for the first time of what went on inside both of those jury rooms.
