A rare interview with Reginald Denny

Truck driver Reginald Denny who was viciously assaulted during the opening scenes of the riots speaks publicly about his ordeal and the perpetuators behind the attack. He suffered extensive physical and phycological implications and underwent years of rehabilitative therapy, his speech and ability to walk permanently damaged.

Denny rarely speaks to the media, and after the trial of his assailants, he approached their families in a gesture of forgiveness. He later appeared on the Phil Donahue show to shake hands with one of them and finally make peace.
