Innocent man dies in police encounter

Before Eric Garner on July 17 and Michael Brown on Aug 9 there was Nair Rodriguez February 18, 2014.

His wife, Nair Rodriguez, videoed the cops piled on top of him as she begged them to stop – Watch her first-hand footage of the incident.  This story has had brief national coverage, but with the wake of protests, I’m surprised not to hear more about this story.

Luis Rodriguez, 44, died from asphyxia due to a combination of officers pinning him down bringing on cardiac arrhythmia.

Would more questioning and less force have resulted in this man still being alive?
