A Valentine’s Day outing turned tragic for one Oklahoma family who claims five police officers beat their father to death during a confrontation outside a local movie theater.

The death is currently under investigation, and three police officers have been placed on administrative leave as the probe unfolds.

The incident occurred February 14 in Moore, Oklahoma, when an argument erupted between Nair Rodriguez and her daughter Lunahi. Nair slapped her daughter during the dispute and ended up leaving the theater. When Luis Rodriguez chased after his wife in a bid to stop her, law enforcement officials intervened and asked for his identification.

According to NewsOK, police claim that Luis Rodriguez attempted to fight with police and that led to a physical altercation. Nair and Lunahi, however, told local media outlet News9 that allegation is false, and that Luis simply tried to bypass officers to keep his wife from driving off in anger.

As the confrontation escalated, five police officers allegedly beat Luis Rodriguez beyond recognition, a situation captured on a video by Nair’s cell phone.

“They jumped on him like he was some kind of killer or drug dealer and beat him up,” Lunahi Rodriguez said to NewsOK. “He never fought the officers, they beat him on the head and that’s how he lost his breath.”

“When they flipped him over you could see all the blood on his face, it was, he was disfigured, you couldn’t recognize him,” she added to News9.

Although paramedics were already at the scene responding to a separate incident, Luis Rodriguez could not be revived. According to Nair Rodriguez, it was clear her husband had died as soon as the beating was over.

“I saw him. His [motionless] body when people carry it to the stretcher. I knew that he was dead,” she said.

Afterwards, police asked Nair what happened and she said her husband was just trying to break up a fight between her and her daughter.

According to a spokesman for the Moore Police Department, police confiscated Nair Rodriguez’s phone as evidence, though it’s unclear whether or not they’ve watched the video yet.

The Rodriguez family said it plans to hire an attorney and take legal action.

    I cannot believe this happened… I am so sad and distraught that 5 policeman would do this to someone on the streets in my hometown. It is tragic and they need to prosecute this men. Please help this family from the devastation loss of her beloved husband. This is an abuse of power. You put a badge on someone and they think they are a god but they are there to protect the citizens not beat them to a pulp. Moore, Oklahoma was not like that when I lived there. I use to drive around the A&W every friday nite and the police would wave at us. It is not right to use such force on a human being regardless of race. Everyone’s blood runs red. The people in charge need to take care of this family for killing an innocent man. We all should stand up for this family and voice our outrage for this injustice in our society. Americans all stand on a level playing field. Keep police brutality out of it.

    I see my first comment went into moderation, possibly because I’m posting using my new WordPress account, which I created last night along with my new blog, saboteur365.wordpress.com (Sabotaging the System one Truth at a Time 365 Days a Year). I’ve also noticed that sometimes WordPress blogs automatically put comments with links into moderation as well.

        Thanks for noticing and admiring the header. I wanted a wolf in sheep’s clothing vibe and found a nice piece of art that I was able to crop. There’s a good bit to learn in setting up a website while trying to provide decent content.

    Let’s start with the idea that the type of individual attracted to police work has an authoritarian personality. Let’s move to the idea that the US is becoming a police state, where cops are allowed to go beyond reasonable force while dressed up in paramilitary outfits. I believe the dead man did get violent, but I also believe the police lost it and probably used excessive force. After all, he’s dead from a beating. But if the System were honest and open, the truth would come out in an investigation. Unfortunately, the System is no longer honest, so we’ll see. La Raza, a despicable group of Marxists, ought to push for an honest investigation, but apparently they’re too busy pushing Reconquista..

    There is a black author named Will Grigg whose articles are posted at the Lew Rockwell libertarian website on a regular basis. He documents many cases of police brutality and I’ll bet there’s a nice archive of his articles on the Rockwell website. Anyone seeking the truth should seek out the Will Grigg articles and WAKE UP.


    • I read a couple of articles on this and the only evidence that he fought back was statements from the cops who beat him to death. I’d like to see that cellphone video that the cops confiscated, but I’m sure it no longer exists.

      Being a member of the police used to require being able to show restraint. This quality is no longer sought after.
