Cops Show Up to “Protect” a Mother and Father — By Beating Them Into the Dirt

An excessive force lawsuit has been filed against Rosenberg Police Department over a brutal and unnecessarily violent incident in July 2014 — partially captured on cell phone video footage.

According to the suit, as Fox26 reported, Christine and Steven Saenz had been arguing with their daughter and retreated to their vehicle, which was parked outside the daughter’s home.

The daughter, hoping to keep the peace, called the police to her home. When Rosenberg PD arrived, the slight disturbance caused by the family dispute turned horribly brutal.





First, officers dragged Christine out of the car. According to the Saenz’ attorney, Steven, then 58-years-old, immediately exited the vehicle upon seeing this treatment of his wife, to discuss the incident with officers.

“When he came around,” said attorney Tony Wadhawan, “they see that he has a pocket knife, because, like I said, he works with his hands. He works in the farm industry, so he always has that knife on him.

“He reached out, got it, handed it over [to the officers]. As soon as he did that, one of them struck him, and they took him down to the ground.”


Though this lead-in to Rosenberg officers’ unnecessary and excessive use of force had not been recorded in video, the Saenz’ son began taping as the confrontation turned sour.

“My client was not fighting with them,” Wadhawan emphasized. “My client wasn’t doing anything of that nature. What I think was happening was we have some overzealous cops out there sometimes.”

Overzealous might be quite the understatement in this case, as video shows the relatively compliant couple repeatedly hit, beaten, and slammed to the ground.
