Las Vegas, NV — Earlier this year, body camera video from Las Vegas police showed the horrifying and fatal confrontation between Tashi Brown and multiple cops with the LVPD. One of those cops, Kenneth Lopera was just arraigned this week on charges of manslaughter and oppression under color of office.

Brown had committed no crime. In fact, it was later reported by the department that had the unarmed man survived this encounter, police would’ve had nothing to charge him with.

Sadly, however, because of Lopera’s incompetence and violence, Brown is dead.

In spite of Las Vegas cops killing many people over the last three decades, Lopera is the first LVPD cop to face a manslaughter charge since 1990, according to the AP.

Naturally, Las Vegas Police Protective Association official Steve Grammas said Lopera did nothing criminal and was using a department-approved method to restrain Brown. according to the AP.

When watching the video below, and considering the fact that police would have had nothing to charge him with, the fact that the Las Vegas Police Protective Association can attempt to claim nothing criminal happened is telling, to say the least.

According to the initial police report, Lopera said he thought Brown was about to attempt a car jacking.
