Handcuffed Man Shot And Killed In Cop Car – Police Say It Was Suicide (VIDEO)


Sergeant Lyle Waterworth of the Jonesboro police department, stated that Carter was “handcuffed, double locked and searched” for weapons. Still, the officer claims, Carter managed to shoot himself in the head after a “thump” was heard from the back of the squad car.

Carter’s mother, Teresa, isn’t buying the story. First, she claimed that her son was searched twice. She said that he was left-handed, but was shot in the right temple. She also said that he had called his girlfriend after he got pulled over and told her he’d call her from jail. She believes her son was killed.


Silly cop. Don't you know you're supposed to unlock the handcuffs and plant a gun on the "suicide" victim, after you shoot them in the head?

Question: So how did Carter end up dead? Police allege that they must have missed a gun Carter had in his possession during the search, thus allowing him to shoot himself in the head. Yes, you read right, police allege that a handcuffed man in the back of a squad car shot himself in the head. Officers say they heard a "thump", then turned and realized that Carter had shot himself in the head. If a man (for whatever reason), get's arrested, is placed in cuffs (double locked), searched for weapons, and then placed in the back of a police squad car, is then shot in the head by the police officer, is it murder? Or will this somehow be justified as just the officer doing his duty? Or do we just accept this farce of a story, because the suspect looked like a gangbanger?

You and I don't agree on much (based on past threads/posting), but I am with you 100% on this matter.

This was cold blooded murder, pure and simple. I posted the article on my FB page earlier this evening to... surprise... no responses.

Why are people acting like things like this don't happen? When are we, as a nation, going to 'wake up' and hold our elected and hired officials to a higher standard?

This 'officer' should be arrested and tried for murder, period.

Can't wait for the apologists to turn up and downplay/damage control this story.

Such a tragedy cops can say something like this and will probably get away with it and it's not like the MSM will cover this story either. I doubt any honest CSI level forensics will take place either, bullet trajectory, fingerprints etc.

da fudge did I just read......



how is that even possible????

EDIT:
No really, even from a criminal aspect. Wouldnt you have to take the fall so everyone doesnt have to get involved in an blatent cover up?

Is this crap on purpose? I have to ask, are they doing this to provoke a response?

Insane becomes normal.

Indeed... like how a left-handed dominant man, with his hands cuffed BEHIND him, managed to hide a weapon from police after being pat down and shoot himself in his RIGHT temple?

People need to hear this story. I am all for good, lawful police doing their jobs. Murder has no place... NO PLACE... in our society. At all.

I am so sorry to hear this, that poor life and the tragic existence left for the mother to suffer. He looked like a pot smoker (big deal) not some dangerous crack head.

Wow. RIP

Uhh... Like a previous poster said. The OP and I haven't always seen eye to eye but they have to be kidding with this load of hooey. If this happened that way then the suspect has a very clear and identifiable line of residue right along the track of this magic friggen bullet right?

That is a trick to end all tricks right there, let me tell you. Imagine, a gun in handcuffed hands being maneuvered around with little or no visibility to it by nature of physics here.....coming from where? His butt?? Oh.. Don't laugh, it's not unheard of....and so physical evidence should confirm THAT too right? .....and all this, he shoots himself a perfect kill shot to the temple.

Okay... It COULD happen...just like the Magic bullet in Dallas COULD have done all it "did" too. This cop just flat out, out thought himself. I won't comment on the Dateline for the story or the ease by which I think that little feat was accomplished. Murder is Murder...and this sucks.

Wait. I'm confused.
I thought 'suiciders' always shot themselves twice in the back of the head.

So they searched him enough to find 'drugs' on him, but not enough to find a gun?
Sounds like they were only searching for one thing...

Well if this guy is good enough to materialize a handgun out of his a** after a police patdown, then he was probably good enough to suicide himself with only one shot to the head with his hands cuffed behind his back. Some people have mad skillz.

This is all so stupid. If his hands were behind him, it is physically impossible. On the other hand, what WERE the cops thinking if they shot him? Did they think no one would notice or just take their word? Do they not know that a suicide by a handcuffed man who is in the back of a police car is a pretty suspicious story?

Obviously an investigation will be done(obviously?). The forensics investigation should be quite the story.

So what are you going to do about this? What are the people going to do? You need to stand up and riot if that's what it takes to bring these pigs down. Seriously, put your hands behind your back as if you would be handcuffed. Its impossible to move your body that way.

Of course they are.
Kissinger supposedly boasted that he would have us begging for UN intervention.

Begging for an end to this evil regime.

That way we can have global government and the elites can rule outright everywhere without having to hide it. And then we will all realize when it's too late, that they are just like the corrupt US Govt, but infinitely worse.

We need to win this through the information war, and fight with our minds and the pen.
That is the key.

Everyone stop buying products you don't need.
And stop believing anything they tell us.


Cripple them. Hit em where it counts, the bottom line $$$.

Don't respond with violence. It's exactly what they want.
They want us to give them "justification" for martial law and crack downs in every neighborhood.

Don't give em anything.

Don't give them your time, your money, or your mind.

"We need to take action" - Don't think so.
We need to stop acting. All of our physical actions fuel the machine.

By not doing anything, just sitting there reading a book or watching the sunset, for free, you can bring this machine to a halt.

But I need a lot of you to help.
Please help me free the human race from tyranny once and for all.
Just stop doing stuff. Halt all unnecessary activity.

This is a Tyranny Boycott

words from my mouth. problem is no one will do anything. everyone forogt the citizens are the power and driving force of the country. if even half of the people of this country stood in the streets.....the powers would have nothing to say.

So his mom said he was searched TWICE to top it off..

So when George Zimmerman kills an unarmed black teen, the media is ALL over it

But when our police officers do the same-- to an unarmed black teen who is handcuffed-- silence.

The vast majority don't care and won't care until it is someone they know.

What exactly should we do here? I mean, we have system in place that handles murders so that we don't have to march up and down streets to demand justice. Sometimes it doesn't work, sure. But lets let it get to that point before we personally take up the cause. As we have always done when we feel justice has not been served.

Rioting solves little to nothing in reality, and creates even more problems for many individuals.
People get hurt unfairly, especially innocents caught in the crossfire.

And rioting against what?
Our make believe idea of nations? Of government?
These things are imaginary fictions, they do not actually exist.

Free yourselves from the chains of these fictional beliefs that hold us back into imaginary cages.
Open your minds to the infinity of potential that is within you, your ultimate power to choose your own way in life.
The creative spirit of human kind.

Break free of these fictions that enslave us!

Whats also interesting is the other two in the car were not detained or arrested.

Were they given a 'stern warning' they wont forget?

I predict an 'internal investigation' that clears officers of any wrongdoing, and a nice long paid leave.
