Flashback: Rodney King thanked those ‘who have kept me alive’

After his interview on MSNBC’s “The Last Word” on April 25th, discussing the 20th anniversary of the L.A. riots, Rodney King thanked those who have supported him over the years — and said those thoughts and prayers “kept him alive” over the years. It’s an eerie flashback, given his sudden death Sunday, at age 47.
