Grand Jury in Las Vegas Decides Against Indicting Cop Who Shot Unarmed Disabled Gulf War Vet to Death

Police union praises the decision


 A grand jury in Las Vegas decided not to indict a police officer who shot and killed an unarmed, disabled Gulf War veteran in his car a little more than a year ago, officials said Thursday.

The decision in the controversial slaying of Stanley LaVon Gibson was hailed by the head of the police union representing Officer Jesus Arevalo as proof there was no criminal action or intent on Arevalo's part.
