Twenty-five years ago, four white police officers brutally beat unarmed black man Rodney King. The video footage of it shocked the nation.

Now a quarter of a century later, more videos of police brutality flood our eye line.

We'll break the video down and talk about what we’ve learned since then with Greg Meyer, retired LAPD captain and consultant on police tactics, and Judy Muller, she teaches journalism at USC, and she covered the story as a reporter for ABC News.
