Storyline

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 ... Written by Ramsey Denison

What They Don't Want You to Believe
5 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

I am privately investigating the Las Vegas shooting and when I saw this movie, I was startled by the way the filmmakers portray the attack. The film is mostly about police brutality and the way that the police there treat citizens. Towards the end, they talk about the night of October 1st and how local authorities have basically refuse to release any information about what exactly went down and why Stephen Paddock (the gunman) did what he did. There are questions like "Why did the hotel use a secret line instead of contacting the regular 911??" and "Why did the police keep changing the timeline??' etc. To those who are currently investigating this horrific act and the supposed "cover up", I highly recommend this film.
