You go out to celebrate the victory of a team you love, get a little drunk in the process, then get beaten to death by a man who felt like taking the law into his own hands. This is not how any evening should go for any family.
24-year-old Johnny Hernandez was out with his wife and three-year-old daughter celebrating a Chivas soccer team victory and had a little too much to drink. His wife wanted him to have some coffee at Dennys, but the man went outside. That's where he was then seen on surveillance camera, outside of the Dennys, urinating next to their vehicle. Another man who was out with his family saw this and thought it was smart to say something. He took matters into his own hands and that resulted in both men scuffling and fighting in front of their wives and children.
Hernandez was too drunk to fight and his wife begged the other man to stop beating him. The other man beat Hernandez so severely that he was placed in intensive care. Hernandez later passed away from the extent of his injuries. He was on life support, but eventually taken off after three days of being in intensive care.
His family fears he may never get justice because the man who beat him is married to a Sheriff's Deputy.
Hernandez's wife say's her cellphone was taken away from her by police before she was taken for interviews about the incident. This raises concerns that police tried to eliminate any evidence that may be on the phone.

Another man, whose wife is a sheriff deputy, was outside with his kids and confronted Hernandez about his behavior. Video showed the two men scuffling.
People ran outside while Hernandez’s wife and 3-year-old daughter watched and screamed.
“She was crying and telling (the man beating Hernandez) stop and he didn’t even stop,” Hernandez’s wife said. “I told him please stop. Don’t do that to him. He’s drunk. He wasn’t in any position to fight. But, he didn’t have any compassion. He was really angry.”
Hernandez’s wife claims deputies took her cell phone then led her away for interviews. Nearly three days later, her husband was still in the intensive care unit at LBJ Hospital before he was eventually taken off life support.
Meanwhile, the report given to the family called the man who beat Hernandez the victim.
Hernandez was genuinely happy that the team he loved had come out with a victory. Sure, Hernandez became drunk, but lots of people drink at sports events or while watching them. Just because he urinated outside, that didn't give the other person any reason to step in, let alone pummel him so badly that he lost his life.
Could it be possible that the man who beat Hernandez was not happy with Hernandez's behavior and took advantage of the fact his wife is a sheriff deputy and thought the law did not apply to him? Hernandez's wife asked the crazy man to stop beating him many times, but he ignored the pleas for mercy and beat the defenseless man to smithereens.
When people get into a fight, the fight is usually over when one person is down or rendered unable to fight. You always know when a fight is over. If someone continues beating another person when the fight is deemed over, then that's probably punishable by law.
Something doesn't sit right with this story. Why beat another man that severely, even if you know that you've won a long time ago and the other person is too drunk to fight?
Why did police take the woman's phone? Did they check for any videos? Did they delete any videos that showed the Deputy's husband beating a man senseless? Did they want to hide any evidence that would prove he was wrong?
Is this considered manslaughter?
Will his connections with his wife being a sheriff deputy allow him to get off lightly or may get away with it all together?
This story is horrible because it leaves a three-year-old daughter and wife without their husband and Father, all because a man celebrated sports and spilled some urine in a parking lot by his car.
What a shame...
