    Handcuffed Arkansas man shot to death in the back of police car

    A 21-year old man was fatally shot in the head while handcuffed in the back of a police car in Arkansas. The police claim it was a suicide but victim's family has a hard time believing it.

    Chavis Carter was arrested by two officers for carrying marijuana, after being detained at a traffic stop last Saturday. The officers say they searched him twice before placing him in the back of a police car wearing “double locked” handcuffs.

    Carter allegedly called his girlfriend while at the traffic stop, telling her he’d call later from jail.

    But shortly thereafter, the young man was found slumped over in the back of the police car with a fatal gunshot wound to the head. The officers claim they were nowhere near the car when the gun was fired.

    Police at the scene maintain that Carter had concealed a gun and shot himself. But Carter’s mother believes police killed her son and are now trying to cover it up. She says her son suffered a wound to his right temple, but he was left-handed. The fact that her son was wearing double locked handcuffs makes a suicide even more unbelievable, she said.

    Police Chief Michale Yates said that the death is “definitely bizarre and defies logic at first glance.”

    Yates told HLN TV that there is no indication of any projectiles coming from outside the vehicle, which suggests that whatever happened to Chavis happened from inside the car.

    Several “Justice for Chavis Carter” Facebook pages have been set up. Many of the Facebook page commenters call for justice in what they consider a brutal murder by police officers.

    “Such a tragedy,” Shawn Lewis wrote on one of the pages, which has more than 1,300 “likes” “But not the first time a young man of color has been killed in cold blood by the police force with no provocation. What can we do to stop the war on our children?”

    Amid a whirlwind of conflicting ideas about how the young man was shot in the head while handcuffed, the FBI has begun an investigation into the case.

    “You can ask any officer anything you want, but it doesn’t mean they are going to tell you anything,” Charles Coleman, a member of the Jonesboro City Council, told the Huffington Post. “Until there’s an investigation, you’re like any other person hearing pieces of the news. I’d rather have it documented in black and white.”

    So far, anger has been brewing in those familiar with the case. Sherman Pye, who runs a bail office in Jonesboro, said people are heated about the lack of transparency about what happened.

    “Everybody is just on pins and needles waiting to see the outcome,” Pye said. “We just want to make sure he’s dealt a fair deal. We’re not here to convict anyone, we just want clarification.”

    Have to be careful here not to tar all cops with the same brush, most are awesome people doing a job to protect me and you and millions of others.

    Some though, like you find in any job, are just dicks. This is disgusting and hopefully something can be done about it.

    So, we know for sure the cops killed this kid? Looks to me like it just happened and no one knows HOW it happened yet.... Why are you so quick to slander police before there's even been a chance for an investigation and conviction?

    Just sickens me to the core, how criminals, people all over the world get away with these things.

    See...

    I don't know where in the world you think that these cops are going to get away with this if they, one of them, etc., did this. I'd love to hear your explanation on how you believe the cops did it. What information do you have that makes it seem plausible that the cops did this?

    It's not as sickening as people believing things happened without any proof or information that supports their side.

    Don't think otherwise. I watched a security camera in an interrogation room.. Police brought a guy in to interview him, he'd been searched at least three times while being transported in two different cars. Next think you know, on video, the guy pulls a gun out and shoots himself.

    I've seen cases where someone shoots their own body but doesn't die, so blames someone else. I've seen officers respond to calls and gets guns pulled on them and they try and stop the guy with verbal orders, and the guy kills himself. I've seen people charge cops with the intent to get killed. It's a bad world at times. That's just how life is.

    I don't know what your problem is but I don't have anything to do with it. If you don't like people who do that then that's your problem, but I not the one to care for it.

    Didn't have anything to do with you personally. The concept only. I don't have a problem.

    It's not in order to please me. It's always interesting to get a little reasoning on others opinions that might differ from your own.

    He isn't double cuffed... the cuffs were double locked, which means the cuffs can't clamp on his hands. It's for his protection. Being cuffed is barely a restraint.
