Two civil rights organizations are pushing for more answers about the death of Tashii Farmer Brown.
Brown died after being placed in a chokehold by a Las Vegas police officer outside of The Venetian hotel-casino.
The ACLU of Nevada and the NAACP want the Clark County District Attorney's office to release additional records.
Information sought in the ACLUNV/NAACP public records request includes:
- Policies, procedures, and guidelines for taking cases to a grand jury rather than to a preliminary hearing;
- Policies, procedures, and guidelines on how to handle police use of force cases;
- Information related to the practice of bringing in experts, like the Force Science Institute, to contradict findings by the Clark County Coroner’s Office; and
- Any communications about this case between the District Attorney’s Office and the Las Vegas police union, Metro, and the campaign to re-elect Steve Wolfson.
