22. King was stopped by ONE California Highway Patrol car. They called
LAPD because he wasn't responding to the officer's commands (a man and a woman). There were two other males in the car with King.

Sgt. Stacey Koontz was the officer in charge of the LAPD who arrived at the scene. He failed to instruct them to use the "swarm technique" on King and instead,watched while they repeatedly pommelled him with their batons as he lay on the street. This outraged even Poppy Bush.

The rest is history.
