LAS VEGAS (AP) — A federal judge in Las Vegas made no immediate ruling on a request from Democrats that he issue a restraining order telling Donald Trump supporters not to harass voters at polls in Nevada next Tuesday.
The Clark County district attorney recently cleared Metro police in three officer-involved shootings. DA Steve Wolfson said the officers acted lawfully in the shootings of three men: Alberto Castillo, Luis Silva, and Rafael Alonso Olivas.
In the wake of more police units nationwide using cameras, the Metro Police Department is considering body-mounted cameras. The small clip-on cameras would record police stops and provide accountability in case officers are accused of wrongdoing. The cameras "will help strengthen the public's trust in the department," Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak told the Las Vegas Sun. But the police union disagrees. It says Metro needs to negotiate with the union first, before moving ahead with the cameras. Should Metro have body-mounted cameras? Would they provide more accountability? And are they worth the money? Call 258-3552 during the live show, or comment below.
Last month video of a police beating in Henderson spraked a controversy. In the video officers pull over motorist Adam Green, believing he is driving drunk. Five officers take Green and hold him to the ground. We then see Sergeant Brett Seekatz come in and kick Green in the head repeatedly. Green has settled with the state and the city of Henderson. Why did the sergeant feel he needed to kick Green after he was already down? What should his punishment be? And what did that video tell us about the culture of cops?
