WHAT HAPPENED IN VEGAS
An exposé of corruption within the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
When filmmaker Ramsey Denison witnessed members of the LVMPD abusing a handcuffed suspect, he reported the incident. In return, he was beaten and arrested himself, and later discovered that evidence that could corroborate his version of events was suspiciously unavailable. Spurred by a sense of injustice, Denison wisely broadened his scope beyond his own story to launch an investigation into other abuses of police power, focusing on several cases where suspects lost their lives to law enforcement under questionable circumstances. Looking into these deaths, and the subsequent police response, the film posits the existence of a disturbing pattern of corruption and cover-up that should give viewers pause when they think about the supposed carefree reputation of Sin City.
