UPDATE: Man identified who dieD after police use neck restraint technique

LAS VEGAS, NV - A man who died after a police officer used a tactical neck hold to try to gain control of him has been identified as 40-year-old Tashii Brown of Las Vegas by the Clark County Coroner.

The incident began around 12:54 a.m. inside the Venetian Hotel when Tashii approached two Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officers.

According to police, Tashii was acting erratic and said people were chasing him. When one of the officers attempted to talk with him, he took off running and the officers followed.

Once outside of the Venetian, the officers saw Tashii try to open up the tailgate of a pickup truck. When he was unsuccessful, he approached the driver side door, investigators said.

One officer then used a Taser on Tashii, which had an immediate effect on him, but he was able to overcome the shock and began fighting off the officers, investigators said.

During the struggle to take Tashii into custody, police say security guards with the Venetian jumped in to help the officers.

Investigators say the altercation escalated. One officer then punched Tashii multiple times and used a technique called the Lateral Vascular Neck Restraint.

The technique applies pressure to the side of a subject's neck to overcome resistance and allow safe control, according to LVMPD.

During the neck hold, the suspect lost consciousness and officers immediately started CPR, investigators said.

Medical responders rushed Tashii to Sunrise Trauma Center where he died at 1:39 a.m.

LVMPD's Force Investigation Section is looking into the incident.

Techniques like the lateral vascular neck restraint have come under intense criticism in recent years, particularly since the 2014 death of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man from Staten Island who died after a police officer put him in a chokehold. Captured on cellphone video, the 43-year-old father said “I can’t breathe” 11 times before he died of neck and chest compression, made worse by his underlying health problems. Activists around the country adopted the phrase as a rallying cry.

The lateral vascular neck restraint is not considered deadly force by the Las Vegas police. According to the department’s general orders, all commissioned officers at or below the rank of lieutenant are trained in the technique, which is described as a “defensive tactic to quickly and safely stop active/aggressive resistance.”

The restraint, used by police departments around the country, is designed to restrict blood flow to a person’s brain by compressing arteries in the neck, rather than by cutting off a person’s airway. Deployed properly, it’s supposed to help officers control suspects without killing or seriously injuring them, according to the National Law Enforcement Training Center.

The organization calls neck restraints “a safe, viable and effective option for police officers in arrest and control scenarios.” It also stresses that the lateral vascular neck restraint is different from a chokehold or bar-arm choke, which involve squeezing a person’s trachea.

    Mother of man who died in LVMPD custody: 'They killed my boy'

    "They said he went for help and then everything just went crazy and they killed my boy," said Brown's mother, Trinita Farmer.

    Brown's family said he was recently diagnosed manic depressant and concede he has had troubles. In fact, Brown was picked up in Hawaii in 2009 on attempted murder charges.

    According to a recent report, LVMPD officers used the controversial neck restraint maneuver 51 times last year.


    However, the ACLU of Nevada is calling for the department to stop using the tactic.

    "It looks like a chokehold – whether or not it's being applied properly is the question," said ACLU Nevada Executive Director Tod Story. "We would like to see this particular practice stopped … we think it is a use of excessive force and unnecessary."

    LVMPD plans to address the media on the incident at the Venetian Hotel on Wednesday.

    Las Vegas police officer involved in man’s neck hold death to be charged

    The officer who stunned Tashi Brown seven times with a Taser and held him in an unauthorized neck hold for more than a minute before his death will face criminal charges, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo announced Monday.
    At an afternoon news briefing, Lombardo said officer Kenneth Lopera will face charges of involuntary manslaughter and oppression under the color of office.
    The announcement came shortly after Brown’s death was ruled a homicide by the Clark County coroner’s office.

    In a statement, Clark County Coroner Jon Fudenberg said Brown died from “asphyxia due to police restraint procedures and other significant conditions included methamphetamine intoxication and cardiomegaly (an enlarged heart).”
    Brown, 40, of Las Vegas, died at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center after a struggle with police Officer Kenneth Lopera.
    According to police, Brown, who also at times used his mother’s surname of Farmer, approached two uniformed officers about 1 a.m. inside The Venetian, 3355 Las Vegas Blvd. South. He was described as “acting erratic” and paranoid and said the man told the officers “people were chasing him.”

    Report details what led to Metro officer's charges

    LAS VEGAS - Metro Police Officer Kenneth Lopera struck Tashii Farmer 10 to 12 times in the head, used an unauthorized choke hold and held him in the choke hold 45 seconds after another officer asked him to release Farmer, according to his arrest report.

    Officer Lopera, 31, is facing charges of involuntary manslaughter and oppression under the color of office. His arrest marks the first time in nearly 30 years that a Metro officer faces charges in connection with an in-custody death.

    Brown's cause of death was "asphyxia due to police restraint procedures and other significant conditions, including methamphetamine intoxication and cardiomegaly (enlarged heart)."

    The arrest report details how Farmer approached Officer Lopera asking where to find a water fountain. A few minutes later, he asked for an escort to valet because people were chasing him. Farmer began to run and Officer Lopera chased him.

    The chase ended up outside the Venetian Hotel where Farmer approached a truck. Officer Lopera used a taser gun seven times on Farmer knocking him to the ground. There was only five second intervals between each tasing incident. The department has a limit of three tases.

    According to the report, Officer Lopera told Farmer to get on his stomach several times but never gave Farmer a reasonable opportunity to comply with commands before tasing him again. Verbal commands also contradicted each other, telling Farmer "don't move followed by a command to "get on your stomach."

    The report said, Officer Lopera then straddled Farmer's back and struck him in the head 10 to 12 times. Farmer appeared to protect his face but didn't display aggressive resistance. The officer then put Farmer in a "rear naked choke." It is a technique not approved by Metro.

    "Officer Lopera also held the 'rear naked choke' for forty four seconds after being told to let go by Officer Tran," the report said.

    The police union is supporting Lopera and has set up a GoFundMe page for him.

    "I know he didn't go to work going,'Boy I really wish I'd get involved in a high-profile critical incident today.' Quite the contrary, at this point. I'm sure he wishes that it didn't happen at all. But he was out doing the job of a police officer and sometimes we have a bad end result," said Steve Grammas, LVPPA.

    The charges Lopera was arrested under each carry a maximum of four years in prison.

    I met him shortly after. He was on serious damage control. But he came off as legit. He was real remorseful. Look like he hadn't slept in days.

    Officer arraigned on manslaughter charge in chokehold death

    A suspended police officer was arraigned Monday on a manslaughter charge in the on-duty chokehold death of an unarmed man he chased outside a Las Vegas Strip resort last May.

    Kenneth Lopera was not asked to enter a plea, and a Las Vegas justice of the peace allowed him to remain free on $6,000 bail pending a Sept. 25 preliminary hearing of evidence in the death of Tashii S. Brown.

    Lopera, 31, is the first Las Vegas police officer to face a manslaughter charge since 1990. He also is charged with oppression under color of office, and could face up to eight years in prison if he is convicted of both charges.

    Brown's death spawned protest, a federal excessive force and wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of Brown's children, and calls for Las Vegas police to quit teaching to officers a restraint technique called lateral vascular neck restraint.

    Defense attorneys Tony Sgro and David Roger, and Las Vegas Police Protective Association official Steve Grammas who also attended Lopera's brief court appearance, declined afterward to comment. Grammas has said Lopera did nothing criminal and was using a department-approved method to restrain Brown.


    Brown, 40, also used the name Tashii Farmer. An autopsy found that he was intoxicated by methamphetamine and had an enlarged heart, but the Clark County coroner ruled that his May 14 death was from asphyxiation due to the police chokehold.

    Police said a sweaty, agitated and disoriented Brown approached Lopera and another patrol officer early May 14 in a Venetian resort coffee shop, said he thought someone was after him, and then fled through employee-only hallways into a parking area behind the hotel.

    Lopera's body camera showed that he gave chase, and police later said the officer reported that he thought Brown was going to try to carjack a pickup truck.

    Police said Lopera violated several departmental policies when he zapped Brown with a stun gun seven times, repeatedly punched him in the head and neck, and then restrained Brown from behind for more than a minute with what was described as an unapproved chokehold.

    Officials said Lopera told other police at the scene that he subdued Brown using a "rear naked choke."

    The technique, familiar in the world of mixed martial arts, is supposed to restrict blood flow through the carotid artery to the brain without impeding breathing.

    Lopera was suspended without pay following his arrest June 5.

    Three Las Vegas police officers were indicted on involuntary manslaughter and oppression charges following the July 1990 chokehold death of 39-year-old Charles Bush. Their trial ended when a jury deadlocked, and they were not retried.

    Smh @ him being free on 6k bail...

Trying to snatch me one. They changing the demographics of the city. This year has easily seen the most cop related shootings I've seen since been here. Metro pressed me a few nights about some shit shot that didn't even involve me. And they hiring cops fresh out of high school. The wave of people moving here from out of state has changed the city.
