The emotional, riotous aftermath of Wednesday's not-guilty verdict in the trial of Los Angeles police officers charged in the video-taped beating of Rodney King makes the case the nation's most explosive court decision in recent years. Despite acquittal on felony charges in the just-ended trial, the same officers still face departmental proceedings that could cost them their jobs, and at least two civil suits against them remain to be played out.
