Autopsy: Man shot in police car had meth in system
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A man police say shot himself in the head while his hands were cuffed behind him in the back of an Arkansas patrol car tested positive for methamphetamine, anti-anxiety medication and other drugs, according to an autopsy report released Monday that listed his death as a suicide.
The state crime lab report said the muzzle of a handgun that Chavis Carter apparently concealed from arresting officers was placed against his right temple when it was fired. The report, signed by three medical examiners, included a drug analysis showing Carter's urine and blood indicated methamphetamine and other drug use.So, this guy was on meth, was handcuffed, sitting in the back of a police car after having been searched twice, and managed to shoot himself in the head with a POS Cobra 380? I think it is more likely that Elvis, helped by Jimmy Hoffa, pulled the trigger. No, I'm sorry, there's something rotten here. I've had the misfortune of "firing" one of those Cobras at the NRA Convention a couple years back. Calling that *thing* a trigger is true only in the most technical of senses.
So, what really happened? Even if we accept the flight of fancy that is the official version, where a skinny methhead handcuffed in a cruise can shoot himself in the head, fatally, with a single shot from a .380 ACP, you still have two seriously inept cops. They searched this dude twice and failed to find a gun? Really? This is what they're *admitting* to, here. Dash camera footage, conveniently, doesn't show the actual shooting, so we have the word of two self-admitted inept cops as to what happened.
No, I'm sorry, I don't buy this one for a second...
That is all.
