Okay I've tried in vein to imagine this happening as the local LEOS are reporting. Hand cuffed from behind in a police car. At the very least protocol was non-existent,and why would a kid planning to contact his girlfriend at the police station,shoot himself? What was he stopped for? How does an officer,trained to protect themselves and the public miss a gun. I've seen contortionist,and he was a lefty,REALLY?
Jonesboro police release dash cam footage of the night Chavis Carter died in the back of a police car. Police maintain Carter shot himself while in the back of a squad car double hand cuffed. the dash cam ends before the shooting,and the reconstruction is missing input from 21 year old Carter.
Witnesses came forward and gave "statements" supporting the police's improbable explanations. I don't know if this changes anything,but these are up dates!
Thanks to an interested Mom,I was made aware of the ME's releasing his report confirming that 21 year old Chavis Carter committed suicide. As I said before the questions left are inexplicable. I don't/didn't believe that Arkansas employed people would find that Carter was murdered. I've said all a long that I would NOT buy an supported suicide theory, and I don't. I'll keep checking,but a story was posted in this thread with this information from CNN. Plus, a eye witness who apparently is more suited for police work then the officers,keener sight and hearing? I am not buying. Check back, Ladies.
