LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Activists and concerned citizens gathered on Sunday night at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Las Vegas to talk about police violence.

Members of the community took turns speaking about their alleged experiences with local police.

Attendees claim police officers in Nevada and across the country are rarely held accountable for using lethal force.
