Judge sides with widow accused of inciting violence in video

MOORE, Okla. (AP) – A widow accused of trying to incite violence against Oklahoma officers after her husband died in a scuffle with police has won a federal court victory.
U.S. District Court Judge Timothy DeGiusti sided with Nair Rodriguez in the case accusing her of calling police “pigs” in a Facebook video.
The Oklahoma City-area suburb, its police department and the theater where Luis Rodriguez died in 2014 after the scuffle with police wanted the court to impose a financial penalty against his widow.
The Oklahoman reports that the judge called the monetary sanctions “not appropriate” in his six-page ruling. The defendants were seeking about $4,000.
Nair Rodriguez has said she posted the 18-minute Facebook Live video out of frustration and to plead for justice for her late husband.
