Derek Colling Most Dangerous Cop in America LVMPD

Update 11/16/18: Partial footage from Derek Colling’s dash cam and body camera videos has been released. However, the footage was released selectively to media outlets, who in turn chose not to publicly broadcast the full videos, citing their “graphic nature.”  As a result, local residents have formed an “ad-hoc” group whose demands include release of those videos in full, as well as details of Derek Colling’s disciplinary records.

Update 11/08/18: Derek Colling has now been officially named as the shooter. (I’m sure it was a coincidence that they waited until the day after the election to confirm it.) As is the usual procedure, Colling has now been placed on paid vacation while his coworkers “investigate” the shooting.

Update 11/06/18: After being fired by the LVMPD, Derek Colling was hired as a deputy with the Albany County Sheriff’s Department in Laramie, Wyoming. During a traffic stop on November 4, 2018, Colling killed for the third time. This time his victim was Robbie Ramirez, a 39 year old mentally ill man, who was unarmed at the time. In addition, Colling reportedly knew Ramirez well. In fact, the two of them graduated high school together playing on the same baseball team and singing in the school choir together during that time.

Update: About eight months after this incident Colling, was fired by the LVMPD for excessive force. As a result of the video, Mitchell Crooks was awarded a $100,000 settlement as part of a civil rights lawsuit.

Note: If you have videos, stories, upcoming events/protests, or personal interactions with the police (and/or “justice” system) that you would like to share, send them to us and we will do everything we can to bring it to the attention of the world. In addition, you can visit the Nevada Cop Block resources section for information and links to the rights of citizens when dealing with police, during which you should always be filming.

Derek Colling might be the most dangerous (active) cop in the United States. In less than five years as a police officer, Colling has killed two people, including a 15 year old boy, and was just caught on film beating a man for (legally) filming him – great write up and back story at Carlos Miller’s site. Of course, Colling charged Mitchell Crooks with assault on a police officer, which is a complete lie as the video shows.

Please call the LVMPD and ask why they would continue to employ such a violent person. LVMPD Office of the Sheriff: 702.828.3231
