Family says Oklahoma police beat man to death in front of them
The family of an Oklahoma man says that he was beat to death by five Moore Police officers right in front of them. Nair Rodriguez and her daughter Lunahi told News 9 they got into an argument at Warren Theater around midnight.
Nair slapped her daughter then stormed off. Her husband Luis, who chased after her, was soon confronted by the officers who demanded to see his identification.
According to Lunahi and Nair, he tried to bypass the officers to stop his wife from driving off because she was so angry. They said officers took him down and it escalated. Lunahi Rodriguez said that five officers beat her father to death right in front of her, in the parking lot of the movie theater.
“When they flipped him over you could see all the blood on his face, it was, he was disfigured, you couldn’t recognize him.”
By the time it was all over, Nair Rodriguez said that she knew her husband was dead. “I saw him. His [motionless] body when people carry it to the stretcher,” she explained. “I knew that he was dead.”
Nair says she told the police what happened, and that her husband was simply attempting to defuse the fight between her and her daughter. Rodriguez says that she recorded the incident with her phone, but police took it.
Three of the officer have been placed on administrative leave. Detectives are investigating the incident. The family plans to hire an attorney.
