Police accuse Oklahoma widow of inciting violence in video

The Associated Press - January 24, 2017 11:45 am

MOORE, Okla. (AP) – The widow of a man who died after a scuffle with police in Oklahoma is being accused of trying to incite violence against officers.
The Oklahoman reports that court documents show the city of Moore, its police department and the Moore Warren Theatre have asked a federal judge to punish Nair Rodriguez for an 18-minute Facebook Live video.
The documents were filed in response to Rodriguez’s lawsuit against the entities. Rodriguez denies inciting violence.
In the video, Rodriguez speaks out against law enforcement and pleads for justice for her late husband, Luis Rodriguez.
Rodriguez says she took to Facebook Live after being barred from attending the deposition of an officer she blames for her husband’s death.
Luis Rodriguez died in front of the theater on Feb. 14, 2014, after a scuffle with police that led to what Nair says was excessive force by theater security.
