What is What Happened in Vegas about?
While on vacation in Las Vegas, television professional Ramsey Denison is walking through a parking lot when he sees a group of police officers abusing a handcuffed suspect. Shocked by what he's witnessing, he calls 911 to report police brutality -- only to find himself attacked by police and arrested. After reading a police report filled with lies to justify his arrest, Ramsey discovers that the video documenting his attack by LVMPD officers has conveniently gone missing. Shocked by the LVMPD's blatant lack of accountability, Ramsey begins investigating a terrifying pattern of police corruption and discovers that behind the shimmering surface of Las Vegas lies a police department with individuals willing to go to any lengths to cover up crimes. What Happened in Vegas exposes the truth surrounding three murder cases in which all of the victims were shot by cops. The film graphically portrays the shooting deaths of Trevon Cole, a small time drug dealer; Erik Scott, a decorated ex-army officer and West Point graduate, and Stanley Gibson, a disoriented combat army veteran suffering from PTSD. With the help of the victims families, this shocking documentary weaves its way through a maze of lies from top LVMPD officials. Even in the shadow of this deep corruption, we meet heroic LVMPD officers who fight to improve relations within the community while keeping the streets safe. What Happened in Vegas takes a deep look at what is going wrong and what, if anything, can be done to fix it. This explosive expose is a searing examination of out of control cops and abuse of power. This is the movie police couldn't erase.
