olice in Jonesboro, Arkansas are pulling out all the stops to prove that Chavis Carter, a black man they placed in the back of a squad car last month shot, and killed himself while handcuffed.
Yesterday, an autopsy report confirmed their findings.

And last week they released this video showing that it’s possible for someone to shoot himself in the temple.
But an attorney representing Carter’s family is asking a good question about all of this: why haven’t they released video or audio of the incident?
“They should be disclosing every bit of evidence as quickly as they can,” Benjamin Irwin told the Associated Press.
So far, police have “released dashboard camera video recorded the night Carter was shot,” the AP reports:
A spokesman for the police department didn’t tell the AP whether the footage would be released, but said that more evidence could be released.
“As the investigation continues and as prudent further information will be released,”police spokesman Sgt. Lyle Waterworth in an email to the AP. “Any other questions will be answered upon completion of investigation.”
