On October 1st, 2017, a gunman opened fire on over 22,000 Las Vegas concertgoers from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay. 58 people were killed and over 500 were injured in the deadliest mass shooting in US history. Despite the fact that Vegas police were a non-factor in stopping the shooter, the LVMPD was thrust into the national spotlight and celebrated for their bravery by a sympathetic public searching for light in the darkness. The LVMPD’s hero status would prove to be short lived as evidence surfaced proving the LVMPD lied about Stephen Paddock’s check in date and was attempting to cover up the fact that an officer fired his gun in Stephen Paddock’s room. Those familiar with the LVMPD’s history of cover-ups grew even more suspicious when Sheriff Joe Lombardo changed the timeline 3 times and the department was sued by 7 media companies for failing to release 911 calls from the night of the shooting. What Happened In Vegas filmmaker Ramsey Denison has first hand experience with LVMPD cover ups. After witnessing officers abusing a handcuffed stranger, Denison called 911 to report police brutality. A couple minutes later, Denison was attacked and arrested by the LVMPD officers he reported! After reading a police report filled with lies and discovering that the video documenting his attack by the LVMPD had conveniently gone missing, Denison investigated a terrifying pattern of police corruption and discovered that behind the shimmering surface of Las Vegas lies a police department with individuals willing to go to any lengths to cover up crimes.This award-winning expose examines the deadliest mass shooting in US history and features four cases in which all of the victims were killed by LVMPD cops. The film graphically portrays the events leading up to the deaths of Trevon Cole, Erik Scott, Stanley Gibson, and Tashii Farmer-Brown. With the help of the victim’s families and former LVMPD officers, this shocking documentary weaves its way through the maze of lies from top LVMPD officials.What Happened In Vegas takes a deep look at one of the dirtiest and deadliest police departments in the country and exposes the lies and cover-ups that have given the LVMPD a bad name. This is the movie police couldn’t erase!
