  3. Rodney King was in 1991. “Killing in the Name” was released in 1992. My parents were hit by cops for being peaceful protesters in the Sixties. The Mafia got a foothold in the United States in the 1870s because immigrant communities were afraid of the police and turned to organized crime to protect them from the police. When the Constitution was written in 1789, they included the Bill of Rights to try to rein in violent law enforcement.
