Las Vegas Cops Detain, Handcuff, Abuse Couple Before Releasing Them

Holding his gun at his side, a Las Vegas police officer confronted a couple putting their baby inside a car outside a residential home, telling the man that he was a “robbery suspect,” ordering the man to walk towards him.

The man pulled out his phone and began recording, explaining to the cop that he was only picking up his daughter.

The cop said he only wanted to search him for weapons and he’ll be on his way, but the man was not very willing to allow himself to be frisked. But when the cop asked if he had any weapons on him, the man said no.

But the cop did not believe him because he then stormed up to him and handcuffed him, which is when the camera turns off.

The video was posted to Facebook earlier today by Mooch Esguerra, who said he was posting it on behalf of two friends, whose identities he was protecting.

He said the incident took place Wednesday light, resulting in both the man and woman handcuffed, abused and taunted by three cops, who then released them with no charges or apologies.

The woman ended up with bruises and knots on her face after they banged it several times against the car.

The names of the officers are Quintana, DeLeon and Miller.

This is how he described the incident:

First off, I want to say, by no means am I posting this to say fvck the police or whatever, I did all that last night. But I am doing this to spread awareness about police harassment since it hit very close to home.
Two of my best friends, (I gave them nicknames to protect their identity, but if you know their voices you’ll know who I’m talking about) BF1 and BF2 were at their baby’s grandmother’s home and had just finished putting the baby in the car.
Out of nowhere units rushed and surrounded them and drew weapons because BF1 fit the description of a robber. Mind you it’s dark as shit outside and cold. The door to the car hasn’t even been closed yet. They didn’t ID BF1 and proceeded to treat him as if he were the actual suspect.
His hands were in his pockets and he slowly pulled them out for the sake of not being shot and began filming. As you can see in the video the officer apprehended BF1. That’s the tip of the iceberg. The rest of what I’m telling you wasn’t caught on camera.
From there 3 police officers also apprehended BF2, banged her head on the car window 3-4 times and arrested her. She has knots and bruises on her face.
They also provoked BF1 and taunted him while dragging and pulling him by his cuffs. One officer even asked BF1 “what’s he going to do about it”. At this time they still haven’t acknowledged the child or closed the door to at least keep her warm and were looking for reasons to send BF1 to jail, they found nothing.
The professionalism of the officers was thrown out the window treating both like caged animals verses human beings, except one officer. After BF2 had mentioned to the officers what they were doing was wrong (due to her bachelors in criminal justice and knowledge of the law) they uncuffed her and bribed her with letting them know if she wants to work with metro to give them a shout.
The police officers let them go without any apologies. All of this and no Miranda rights were read to them. Both of my friends are mentally traumatized by the event and in my opinion the officers should be questioned of their professionalism in the service they are hired to do.
The only names we pulled from the bunch were Officer Quintana, Officer DeLeon and Officer Miller. #‎MetroPoliceDepartment #‎LasVegas #‎LVMPD

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.

Please make a donation below or click on side tab to learn more about our mission.
