Wow.... I hope everything works out for you.
I worked in NLV for a couple of years (up at the CCSN Cheyenne Campus), and the amount of criminal activity there was rampant. Certain areas of that city are just "ick"..but that still doesn't explain or condone the actions of the LEO's. Some of the craziness there is one of the reasons why I moved away and to Indiana.
Good luck to both of you.
I agree with some of the other posters. If this is found in your favor, then get your lawyer to sue the ever loving **** out of the city and the NLVPD. Sounds like they need it.
Keep us informed...
