An Unedited Video Interview with a “KILLER COP”!! “Unarmed Disabled Army Gulf War Veteran Stanley Gibson’s widow interviewed with former LVMPD COP Jesus Arevalo”
Gibson: “Stop telling me what you lost at least they are still alive; my husband is dead because of YOU”!
Clark County Nevada
April 21, 2015
The most controversial police shooting in Clark County Nevada took place on December 12, 2011. When then Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officer Jesus Arevalo squeezed 7 rounds off with his personal AR-15 taking the life of Unarmed Disabled Army Gulf War Veteran Stanley Gibson in just 1.2 seconds.
Then Sheriff Douglas Gillespie automatically came to the aid of Arevalo by downplaying the officers’ actions in a News Conference by saying the officer used his weapon in defense of police officers due to Stanley Gibson using his vehicle as a battering ram.
It was later discovered after a civilian took a video of the incident that Gibson was sitting in his vehicle spinning his tires, trapped between two police cruisers and officers were at a safe distance. Because of this lie by Gillespie, the lies told prior to this incident, and the lack of de-escalation training Veterans In Politics International was the “only” organization to go on television and asked for the Sheriff’s resignation immediately following this incident.
In January 2012 (VIPI) Veterans In Politics International interviewed the widow Rondha Gibson on its radio program and made two promises to her; the first promise was to make sure Officer Jesus Arevalo will lose his badge and the second promise is the push for a new Sheriff for Clark County.
Veterans In Politics International interviewed the wife of Officer Arevalo and it was said in the interview that Arevalo made a statement indicating that he wanted to “shoot someone so he can be placed on Paid Administrative Leave”.
Officer Arevalo was the only LVMPD Officer to be brought before the ‘Secret Grand Jury” at the direction of Clark County District Attorney Steven Wolfson. Arevalo was the only Police Officer in over 40 years of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police history to be terminated because of a wrongful shooting and that recommendation came from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department “Use of Force Board” headed by then Assistant Sheriff Ted Moody.
Arevalo is receiving disability payments from tax payers at the tune of $30,000 per year for killing Stanley Gibson. I ask you is this justice?
If there is anyone that needs disability payments that is Rondha Gibson…
Veterans In Politics International and many organizations from this community campaigned against the “More Cops Bill” that was sponsored by Gillespie to increase the multi-million dollar bank account of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
The 2013 Nevada Legislators sent the bill back to Clark County to make a decision to move forward. There were three Clark County Commissioners: Steve Sisolak, Chris Giunchigliani, and Susan Brager who declined to raise sales taxes to add to Gillespie’s budget. Gillespie decided against a re-election campaign after he made an announcement that he would campaign for a third term.
Veterans In Politics International accomplished both promises made to Rondha Gibson with the help of countless people and organizations of this community.
Stanley Gibson was suffering from (PTSD) Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the Veteran Administration also failed Gibson as well as the many military veterans that survive combat in a foreign land just to return to our country and killed by a police officer that was sworn to “serve and protect”.
This incident received the attention of the Stars and Stripes the largest military newspaper in the world to do a story on the demise of Stanley Gibson (see article: http://www.stripes.com/program-trains-police-to-defuse-confrontations-with-troubled-veterans-1.312280 ).
This incident cause our 2013 legislators to sponsor a bill that calls for “veteran” to be placed on Nevada Driver’s License with the help of VIPI in an effort to alert Police Officers that they are dealing with a military veteran and to use their de-escalation training.
The interview between Rondha Gibson widow of Disabled Army Gulf War Veteran Stanley Gibson and former LVMPD Officer Jesus Arevalo is more than likely the first of its kind, where the victim family member interviews the cop that took their loved one. The interviews have several parts, the first set of interviews are focused on Rondha Gibson and the second set are focused on Jesus Arevalo. Click onto the links below to view.

Cop says “METRO trained me to KILL”
Face to face with a killer
We feel that the publication of these videos are important into understanding what goes through the minds of a Police Officer and the devastation the families have to go through for years to come in an “unjustifiable” police shooting that causes the death of a loved one.
In recent events:
Rob Bare Clark County District Court Judge and Appellate Judge for the lower courts affirmed the two misdemeanor convictions rendered by Las Vegas Municipal Court Judge Heidi Almase against Jesus Arevalo the former Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officer who killed Unarmed Army Disabled Gulf War Veteran Stanley Gibson. Arevalo is on House Arrest with a suspended 6 months jail sentence. We are pleased that these two judges did the right thing.
