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 copsall while his grief-stricken wife watched in horror.
The man, 44-year-old Luis Rodriguez, died in a Moore, Oklahoma movie theater parking lot. Police were responding to a reported domestic disturbance. Rodriguezs wife admitted to slapping the couples 19-year-old daughter in the face over a disagreement about the girls 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 its unclear whether he is still alive. The officers seem unaware that anything is wrong, however, and continue to keep him pinned.
The footage was shot by Mrs. Rodriguez. Another officer kept her several feet away from her prone husband. Both this officer and Mrs. Rodriguez remain civil toward each otherat least until the ambulance arrives. At that point, Mrs. Rodriguez realizes that her husband is completely limp, and panics that he is dead.
You killed my husband! she shouts, and then begins to cry.
Rodriguezs death is being investigated. The results of the autopsy have not yet been disclosed. Security camera footage has yet to be released as well, and could shed more light on how Rodriguez died, according to News 9.

Doesn’t sound good, but more info is required.
The wife filmed it?
> Doesnt sound good, but more info is required.
Yes, of course.
At least the cops were able to go home to their loved ones afterwards, eh?
So what in the sam hell is "not cooperative" supposed to mean? Was he throwing punches? Pulling a knife? Or just refusing to answer questions?
Why is it that anytime PDs use that phrase, I'm inclined to think it is something in the later category?
