Man shoots self in head with hands cuffed behind his back and after being searched twice

Chavis Carter’s family does not believe he committed suicide July 28 while handcuffed in the back of a Jonesboro, Arkansas police car. Their supporters are plying the race card because Carter was black and the two arresting officers were white. There have been street demonstrations demanding justice for 21-year-old Carter. And poverty pimp Jesse Jackson has come down to Memphis, Tennessee to met with Carter’s family and to demand a federal investigation of Carter’s death.

Carter’s mother says he was a good boy who liked shopping for sneakers and playing basketball, and who intended to become a veterinarian.

Here is what the medical examiner who conducted the autopsy has now stated: “There is no other explanation to this … other than that he put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger, and that’s what we call a suicide.”

Furthermore, toxicology tests showed Carter’s blood tested positive for at least trace amounts of the antianxiety drug diazepam and the painkiller oxycodone in addition to a larger amount of methamphetamine. And his urine tested positive for marijuana.

At the time of his arrest, there was an outstanding Mississippi arrest warrant for Carter on drug charges.

The toxicology report and the Mississippi arrest warrant make Carter look quite different from momma’s good boy - the aspiring veterinarian who liked to shop for sneakers and play basketball.
