Moore, Oklahoma cops tackle, beat, pepper-spray, pin, suffocate, kill innocent manTopics: National News
One can only imagine this woman's horror and distress (you can hear it in the video) as her husband, who committed not crime whatsoever and wasn't even involved in the incident between her and her 19 year-old daughter, was attacked and murdered by 5 Moore, Oklahoma cops. Fortunately, the cops actually allowed the wife to video the murder of her husband and her lawyer has now released it. You can count on a huge lawsuit being prepared at this very moment and hopefully some, if not all, of the cops involved in the incident being prosecuted.
Disturbing video of a police incident in an Oklahoma parking lot shows a man who had committed no crime dying after being roughed up and violently restrained by four cops-all while his grief-stricken wife watched in horror.More here ...
The man, 44-year-old Luis Rodriguez, died in a Moore, Oklahoma movie theater parking lot. Police were responding to a reported domestic disturbance. Rodriguez's wife admitted to slapping the couple's in the face over a disagreement about the girl's behavior. Rodriguez, however, was not involved and had not done anything wrong, according to local news reports.
But when police arrived, they wanted to question Rodriguez. According to the Moore police department, Rodriguez was not cooperative, and cops were forced to handcuff and restrain him.
Cell phone video shows the immediate aftermath of the restraining process. Several cops can be seen pinning Rodriguez face-down on the ground. One officer kneels on his back while others hold his arms. He does not move or speak at this point, and it's unclear whether he is still alive. The officers seem unaware that anything is wrong, however, and continue to keep him pinned.
Rodriguez had done nothing wrong other than "not being cooperative" with the police who were questioning the wrong person in the first place. There was certainly no reason for 5 cops to attack him, beat him (his wife and daughter say police started beating him after he was handcuffed), pepper-spray him (in his mouth, nose and eyes and putting the weight of five grown men on top of him), continue to pin him down, and end up suffocating him. And all of this happened just because his wife slapped their daughter in the parking lot after the family had just come out of a movie theater.
According to the police, three officers involved in the incident are on administrative leave ... but in my opinion they ought to be in jail under the charge of second degree murder. Being a cop doesn't give you the right to murder someone, just like having a concealed carry license doesn't give you the right to shoot someone. Deadly force must be fully justified, and in this case there is no justification whatsoever. A totally innocent man has been murdered by the very people that are suppose to protect him.
