The circumstances surrounding the mysterious death of Chavis Carter have left many unanswered questions:

- How does a handcuffed man that’s been searched twice still manage to shoot himself in the head?

- Even if he managed to sneak a gun, how did he shoot himself in his right temple?

- How convenient is it that a suspect is killed in the only place that isn’t being monitored by a camera?

According to Sergeant Lyle Waterworth, Carter was “handcuffed behind his back and double locked, and searched.” However, according to cops Carter still managed to grab a gun he had either found or had hidden and shoot himself.

Waterworth throws his weight behind his officers saying he believes it’s easy for a cop to miss something like a gun in searches: “Any given officer has missed something on a search, be it drugs, knife, razor blades, this instance it happened to be a gun.”

So the cops say this is easy to do. I say BS seeing as how I've been handcuffed before and I don't care how many times you have been unless your the worlds greatest magician I don't see how you can shoot yourself. He was shot in the right temple and he was left handed.

Definitely suspicious.

This needs to be investigated. Bring in Myth Busters.
 
Ya and the cops tampered with the scene because they tried to "revive" him. Not much to do when someone is shot in the temple
 
I suspect foul play. Although being left handed doesn't rule out him using his right-hand to fire. Of course being hand cuffed with his hands behind his back it's damn near impossible
 
Ya they searched him twice and found a small bag of weed but the gun magically alluded them
 
yet ANOTHER example of renegade rogue cop bulls**t...
 
Why would a "renegade rogue cop," shoot someone that they had handcuffed and in the backseat of their car? I heard a forensic expert talking about it on the news this morning. He said it is very possible for the victims to have shot himself, even though he was handcuffed. But he did not think it was a suicide. He thinks that he was trying to get the handgun off of his person before it was found and a weapons charge was added and while doing so he accidentally discharged the gun. That seems likely to me.
 
He accidentally discharged the gun into his right temple?
 
I just spent way longer than I should have pantomiming how I might try and "hide" a gun whie my hands are cuffed behind my back. It was literally IMPOSSIBLE for me to get a "gun" in any kind of position to get a head shot. I'm not going to damn the cops right away, but there's clearly a lot of missing info right now.

If that's the case than where is this gun he accidentally shot himself with? Seems like it should have been in the car and if there was one why haven't we been told about the gun laying there? Seems like that would lend that theory a lot of credence
 
Is this guy a Jedi or a telekinetic? Bulls***. The cops killed him.
 
I find it an awfully big "accident" to swallow that a handcuffed man trying to dispose of a gun somehow managed to shoot himself directly in the right temple.
 
He was searched not once but twice and they were able to find a small bag of weed on him yet no gun either time. The officers were white and they let his two white friends go but kept him after discovering he gave them a fake name and had a warrant out.

The cops superior officer when questioned by a reporter essentially said its easy for cops to miss guns and its easy for someone used to being in cuffs to shoot themselves in the head.

searched TWICE, no weapon found...

handcuffed behind his back...

shot in the temple...

no mention of any gun found...

superior officer quickly coming forward with an "explanation"...


my ASS... wake up and smell the coffee instead of the fumes from the bulls**t that's being served up...
 
After attempting the needed positioning to shoot myself in the head while handcuffed behind the back, for science, yeah it's totally possible and not that hard to aim at your temple (accidentally or not).

But yeah, guns just don't appear out of a hidden pocket and then disappear from small, enclosed places.

:huh:
 
So either the cops executed this guy or they arrested houdini

I don't see anything wrong here. He gave fake name so they kept him to figure out who he was and then they figured out he had pending warrants. What doesn't it matter who is white and who is black?
 
Just relaying the info didn't say race was a factor. I said why the held him which is standard procedure.
 
I would think that if the wanted to kill the guy, they would have done it in the complete opposite of what happened here. There are supposed to be witnesses and the dash cam audio to support their claim. I could see him trying to get rid of the gun and it accidentally going off. It's not impossible.

So far the cops are the only witnesses that I know of and the dashboard cams don't record the back seat. The way the other car was parked didn't get it on camera either and then there is the fact that no one has mentioned any gun being found

Not long afterward, police said, an officer found Carter slumped over, soaked in blood and suffering from a gunshot wound to his head. A small, .380 caliber handgun along with a spent cartridge, were found in the backseat with Carter, who was still handcuffed. The police said the gun had been reported stolen in June. Yates said in a recent statement that witnesses and a police car dashcam corroborate the department’s suicide theory.

Like I said, I don't think it was a suicide. It's very plausible that he accidentally shot himself. Hopefully we get new info soon.
