Rodney King’s daughter Lora reacts to Derek Chauvin trial verdict: ‘It gives you hope’



LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Lora King, the daughter of Rodney King, says the guilty verdicts in the Derek Chauvin murder trial provided a sense of hope.

“It gives you hope. It’s not the ending of something, but it’s definitely the beginning of something,” she told “Good Morning America.”

It was nearly 30 years ago when her father, Rodney King, was brutally beaten by four Los Angeles Police Department officers. It was also caught on video, but the officers in her father’s case were acquitted.

Riots exploded across Los Angeles. Sixty people died and damage was estimated at $1 billion.
