    Derek Colling Update - Las Vegas PD

    Just wondering what the status of Derek Colling is after the beat down he gave some guy for video taping a crime scene from his driveway?

    My guess is he will have to stay after work for "retraining" while he collects overtime.

    From a very quick Google search I found.

    In the comments people are calling LVMP Office of the Sheriff: 702.828.3231 and getting the answer that he has been relived of duty.

    Here's another account, with more of the dialogue.
    cop: Can I help you, sir?
    citizen: Nope, just observing.
    cop: Do you live here?
    citizen: Nope.
    cop: Turn that off for me.
    citizen: Why do I have to turn it off? I’m perfectly within my legal rights to be able to do this.
    cop: (walking towards citizen) Turn off the camera for me.
    citizen: I’m perfectly within my legal rights to do this, sir.
    cop: Listen, turn off the camera for me.
    citizen: No sir, I am within my legal rights to do this.
    cop: You don’t live here.
    citizen: I do live here.
    Then the cop attacks the citizen.

    I think after the first "can I help you?" from the cop who had just entered my property, I might have said, "yes, by leaving my property".
    Don't know why he originally said he didn't live at his house, but it doesn't matter; the cop was out of line for approaching him, let alone telling him to stop taping.
    Seems the cop has been relieved of duty & I hope they make him pay back whatever he's 'earning'... unless he's using earned vacation & sick days. That's fair.

    Y'know... I wonder if the officer, by saying that, left himself open to not being covered under qualified immunity? After all, he wanted the camera turned off For Him, not for the agency.

    I suspect that, for reasons that soon became apparent, he didn't want the cop knowing where he lived.

    Well, this officer has certainly been a busy little bee in the past few years....2 "justified" shootings and who knows how many beat downs....haha...Glad they got the bad egg out of there.

    Fired, after 8 months of "investigation".

    Of course, he should have been charged criminally on the spot.

    Amazing they don't mention he was one of the Costco shooters as well. I think it's a little absurd he was on a paid suspension since April, and is just now being fired. Not sure how I feel about charges being filed, but at least he isn't a cop anymore.

    He wasn't, the Costco ones were Mosher, Stark, and Mendiola. Mendiola was the one who had some different legal problems afterwards.
