OK playing devil's advocate here, but I do believe the young man was murdered and this was not a suicide.
The first question we must ask is, could the young man have gotten his hands to his head area?
I have seen people slip their feet in between their cuffs to get their hands in front.
So, that would be a yes.
Next question is would he have shot left handed when he was a righty?
I imagine if he was in a hurry to get the job done and was afraid of dropping the gun, yes he might have gone lefty.
That said, the officer apparently did not know what was going on until the deed was done.
Next question, is it possible for someone to sneak a gun into a patrol car?
Yes if the officer was lazy and did not search the individual.
So, this scenario is possible the way the "law" presents it but I believe highly improbable.
Just another reason I believe police should wear forward and rear facing shoulder mounted cameras.
For their own safety of course, and as we all know, if you've got nothing to hide, then you have nothing to fear.
That is what they say right?
More police mounted cameras are the answer.
