LAS VEGAS -- Family members and friends are planning a vigil to mark the one-month anniversary of the Las Vegas police slaying of a man in front of a membership warehouse store.
The 9 p.m. Tuesday event is part of an ongoing family campaign to highlight the July 10 death of 38-year-old Erik Scott by police just outside the Costco store in Summerlin.
Police say Scott had a gun and the three officers who shot Scott were responding to reports of a man ripping merchandise inside the store.
Family members say Scott had a concealed weapons permit, and police should release store surveillance video of the slaying. Police say it's possible no video exists. A coroner's inquest has been postponed, with officials planning up to three days of testimony from witnesses

This is really starting to stink.
Stinks pretty bad....smells like a coverup.
Starting to? We can smell the stench from here in Texas.
Oh, they know. They sent the disk off to Hollywood to receive the best digital editing known. If it can be 'edited' enough to convince the public of an actual OUTRIGHT LIE, then they will tell us it exists.
Yep. The liberals in Hollywood are well known for their willingness to help the cops with their cover ups.
The stench of police misbehavior wafts all the way to the Democratic People’s Republic of Maryland.
Sure looks that way. I am surprised there is nobody with an ounce of integrity who is in the know about this thing who will not come forth and admit what is going on. Hell, if I was one of the cops who did it I could not allow the cover up to continue. How do these people sleep at night?
Connect the dots.
Did someone want to show white rednecks who insist on the right to CCW, that they can be killed, in front of a large crowd, and nobody will do a thing about it?
The Costco Security person escalated this beyond the reality.
The officers who fired (SEVEN SHOTS) were dogs on a leash, and somebody in the 'department' let them off the leash.
What is known for sure is that they fired at him very quickly after he exited the door of Costco.
Why is it the LVPD's call to say whether the video exists or not?
Isn't the video the property of Costco?
Why doesn't Costco just release the video to the parents or the news media?
You're right, this stinks to high heaven!
This looks like a duck...........This walks like a duck...........This sounds like a duck.............must be a duck............
When I think of the LV police, I get a picture of RENO 911.
I think their biggest duty is to stay out of the way of mob enforcers and hitmen.
Report of a “Man ripping merchandise inside the store”, what the h**l are they talking about? Do they mean “ripping off” as in stealing or tearing up/destroying something?
Is it too much to use good descriptive wording or is that beyond today’s “reporters”, no need to anwer that.
This really does stink. You can bet that there are videos, nothing but lies, lies and damned lies.
With one eye open................
cyborgs dont sleep anyways...
I wonder how the casinos and other businesses in Las Vegas would feel about it if all Vets and families of Vets and folks who believe in the 2nd Amendment would just say:
I will no longer go to Vegas. Nevada is dead to me.
How would they feel if all the corporations who schedule conventions there said: No More!
Because if Costco 'legally' had it in their possession, they could be forced to produce it.
My GUESS is that the actions of the Costco Security employee (exaggerating the incident) would leave Costco open to a huge lawsuit.
So... since the COPS are in just as must 'trouble' if the TRUTH were revealed to the PUBLIC, then they were happy to let the LV Police Chief take the DISK and send it off to California for further 'analysis'.
As long as no one ever sees the original video, the COPS and COSTCO will get away with this.
I would call my congressman my senator and the FBI
A political murder?
It does seem America has become a latter day Weimar Republic with a rising tide of political crimes committed by the fascist Left against honest citizens.
Vegas is a union/ mob/ Leftist town that is as corrupt and degenerate as they come and well known as “Sin City.” He could have been murdered to send a “message” that concealed weapons by permit are politically incorrect.
Also his race, gender and class were a factor that made murder very P.C.
It stinks even more:
The Vegas PD is out of control.
“One month and the police say they do not know if video exists. “
Speaks volumes regarding their investigative ability... errr cover up ability.
