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.

Did You Know?


Though the LVMPD's Internal Affairs Department launched an investigation, officers Mark Belanger, Kyle Frett, and Jared Casper were not disciplined in any way for attacking Ramsey Denison after he called 911 to report them for abusing a stranger in custody. Denison was so shocked by the LVMPD's brazenness and lack of accountability that he began looking into other cases. See more »

Not really about the shooting.
20 August 2018 | by jhoward-85324See all my reviews

The last 10 minutes of this movie scratch the surface of the horrific shooting and hit a couple of inconsistencies that _may_ have relevance but are not covered in detail.

The movie isn't bad - it covers a couple of very intriguing examples of police brutality and cover-ups. It also has a couple examples that are weaker and leave our key pieces of evidence that were obtained one the first page of a Google search.

It just has nothing to do with the shooting. Seems clear this was a piece designed to cover an election campaign and when that failed it was re-branded to get views. None of the valid points raised in the first hour and 40 minutes of this movie have anything to do with the massacre they put on the cover.
