George Holliday was the man who videotaped the beating of Rodney King 15 years ago. Then the LAPD officers involved were acquitted of all charges, leading to riots that 54 deaths, 2,383 injuries and more than 12,000 arrests.
As a result, he’s been divorced twice, he’s scraping by financially as a self-employed rooter and lives alone with his 9-year-old son in a one-bedroom apartment. He has unlisted numbers for himself and his business, sends his son to a private school and spends his days alone.
Does he regret doing it? Yes, and no.
