Family releases raw cellphone footage of man dying in police custody
Adan Salazar  February 25, 2014
The lawyer for a family whose patriarch died after a one-sided confrontation with police says officers may have continued beating the man even after he was already dead.
The attorney’s remarks come as outrageous new raw footage documenting the last moments of the man’s life is released.
The footage shows five exhausted officers pinning a handcuffed man face down to the ground in the parking lot of the Moore Warren Movie Theater in Moore, Okla., while his wife is heard begging police to stop.
Police say the man who died, 44-year-old Luis Rodriguez, was confrontational when they approached to question him concerning a domestic disturbance call, however, the family’s attorney, Michael Brooks-Jimenez, says Rodriguez was not involved in the initial dispute.
Officers next pepper sprayed, beat, then proceeded to handcuff Rodriguez, possibly after he had already died, Brooks-Jimenez asserts.
“He was not involved in the disturbance. However, when police came, they focused their attention on Luis. Taking him face down onto the pavement, pepper-spraying his mouth, nose and eyes and putting the weight of five grown men on top of him, and then handcuffing him as he was unconscious or already dead,” the Rodriguez family lawyer said.
“Luis committed no crime. He wasn’t armed. No gun. No knife. No weapon of any kind. But Luis was the one who lost his life that night,” Brooks-Jimenez adds.
In the video, fatigued officers cease a five-person dog pile to reveal a limp Rodriguez, whose lifeless body police attempt to prop up in an effort to save face.
“Papa! Is he OK?,” Rodriguez’s wife cries out as he’s loaded on to a stretcher. “He doesn’t move. He doesn’t move! You kill him! You kill him! You killed my husband! Please somebody tell me that he’s alive!”
Meanwhile, a few of the participating officers can be overheard lobbing threats, saying she could “get herself in trouble” if she didn’t comply with their orders.
Three of the five officers have reportedly been placed on administrative leave while the Oklahoma Bureau of Investigations look into the matter. As of yet, there is no lawsuit pending and the theater’s surveillance footage has yet to be released. Autopsy results are also pending.

Though the footage is powerful, video evidence showing officers committing essentially murder is no longer necessarily enough for a conviction, as seen recently in the aquittal of two officers involved in the death of homeless man Kelly Thomas.

The 3 officers stay on top of him to catch their breath while keeping their weight on him, primarily the one with the cap, which I see is BLATANT FORCE FOR SUFFOCATION!
It does NOT appear that the officers took a REAL CLOSE LOOK as to see if Luis was breathing once they sat him up.

What else can you expect from adrenalin addicted corporate thugs with a gun, badge and 007 license that are condoned and supported by the black robbed devils in their dens of corruption?
These twisted nazi drones, aka, cops, law enforcement officers, are the most dangerous element in our society today. One would have a better chance of survival trying to cross a 4 lane highway at rush hour blind folded.

These criminals with uniforms that have apparently signed an oath of office to serve and protect the people and the Constitution don't even know what the first amendment of the Constitution is. They have committed perjury even before they are cut loose to plunder, rob, harm and even murder whom ever they set their sights on with total immunity.

Yes, the people need to start fighting back and protect themselves from these adrenalin crazed psycos.

There exists a law, not written down anywhere but inborn in our hearts; a law which comes to us not by training or custom or reading but by derivation and absorption and adoption from nature itself; a law which has come to us not from theory but from practice, not by instruction but by natural intuition. I refer to the law which lays it down that, if our lives are endangered by plots or violence or armed robbers or enemies, any and every method of protecting ourselves is morally right. Marcus Tullius Cicero

The federal government has given law enforcement The O K to kill anyone who resists, or even if they comply they are killing people They have told the officers they will let them off , because they use the I WAS AFRAID FOR MY LIFE excuse . They are not as protected as they think. They are no more that paid contractors working for the city, they must be taken to an administrative board and get them fried, then SUE then personally and get their retirements and their homes. And the court can Not furnish them with a lawyer that we pay for , they must pay for their own attorneys . Same type of chit Hitler did to the German people, coming to a town near you.
