Woman Says Husband Beaten To Death By OK Cops In Movie Parking Lot

Call for justice: Nair Rodriguez (left) says Moore police officer viciously beat her husband, Luis, to death in a movie theater parking lotWhat is going on with cops these days? If this is true, this is outrageous and another act of police abuse of power. After the Kelly Thomas incident, which involved the brutal beating of a homeless man in CA, and other recent reports of police abuse leading to the death of those they confront I find this another disturbing report to a disturbing trend.

Police used to be people that communities could trust and look up to but now I'm not so sure anymore... Video Report

Violent row: Mrs Rodriguez (left) slapped her daughter, Luinahi (right), and stormed off. Her husband went after her trying to get her to calm down, at which point he was confronted by police   

According to Lewis, when three police officers and two security guards attempted to question Mr Rodriguez, he was uncooperative.

He was handcuffed and placed on the ground. That’s when his family say police beat him to death.
The entire incident was captured by Mrs Rodriguez on her cellphone, which she says officers then seized from her as evidence without producing a warrant.

Lewis says police are reviewing the recording. The three officers involved in the deadly confrontation have been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the internal investigation.
