THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, please help me get this story out. It is only being reported on Latino news outlets. This week in Oklahoma police responded to a call at a movie theater in Moore, OK which was a report of a domestic dispute between a mother and daughter. When police responded they approached the father, Luis Rodriguez, assuming he was the perpetrator of some form of abuse, and confronted him by demanding he present his papers. When he tried to walk away he was again confronted and when he refused he was jumped by 5 officers, pepper sprayed in the mouth and eyes, and was beaten to death. The wife caught the end of the assault and his actual death on her cell phone, yet no criminal charges have been filed against the police who claim they used necessary force after he took a “defensive stance”. Racism against Latinos in this country is out of hand. Please help me blow this story up and help get justice for the Rodriguez family.
Usually this type of stuff happens in Arizona.- nik
