On Mother's Day May 14th, 2017 Tashii Farmer Brown the father of my two precious grandchildren Tamara who turned (9) three days after her Father's funeral and Elias(7) was killed in Las Vegas while in police custody. This tragic event is currently under investigation and the one known fact that we are aware of is that the officer tased Tashii 7 times then did an unapproved neck choke hold for more than a minute causing Tashii to stop breathing and was prounanced dead a few minutes later. The police conference that was held and televised indicated that had Tashii survived, there would not have been any charges brought against him. In other words,  he did NOT commit any crime and did absolutely nothing wrong. 6/5 UPDATE officer Kenneth Lopera has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and oppression under the color of office with a max sentence of only 8 years.  Tashii moved from Hawaii to Las Vegas in January 2016. Tashii planned to get his life in order so that he could be a better father and to provide for his two children that he loved whole heartedly.  He called them 2 to 3 times a week and with every extra dollar he worked hard for,  he would send the kids gifts and other needed items. His life was ended brutally and his children will never experience their father's promise to provide for them and to always take care of them.
We are seeking any financial assistance to help their mom Kawai provide for her and Tashii's children, Tamara and Elias.
We aloha and mahalo (thank you) for all your love, prayers and support. We humbly ask for privacy for the family to grieve through this difficult time.
Gene (Ziggy) and Sandy Morton
