Chavis Carter

Handcuffed Man Shot Dead in Back of Police Car, Cops Say He Shot Himself [Video]

A young black man is dead after he was shot in the head while  in the back of a police squad car.  Chavis Carter was arrested and charged with possession of drugs and missing a court date, according to police.


Sergeant Lyle Waterworth of the Jonesboro, AR police department says Carter was searched before he was arrested, then placed in handcuffs.

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 the heard a “thump”, then turned and realized that Carter had shot himself in the head.

Carter’s mother says her son was not suicidal, and had even called his girlfriend to tell her he’d be calling her from jail soon. And police searched the suspect twice, so how’d they miss the gun? Also, the gunshot wound was to Carter’s right temple, but Carter’s mother says her son was left handed.

Sadly, this is not the only recent instance of police allegedly shooting people who are unarmed. Protests in Anaheim, California erupted when police allegedly shot an unarmed man. 

The shooting of Chavis Carter is under investigation and the officer involved has been put on leave.

What are your thoughts on what really happened here?

    WTF Is Going On This Is MURDER PLAIN AND SIMPLE ARREST THAT POLICEMAN NOW!!!

    • If this cat had a gun, why didn’t he shoot the cops in the head? BINGO!!! Wouldn’t that scenario be more logical? You don’t ride armed in the back of a squad car. These boys must have had a hallucinogenic drug before they arrested the young man.

  2. I’m outraged!!! Black boys and men are not safe.

  3. Steeves Volmar Cherenfant

    The police officer shot this young man and murdered him. Before handcuffing a suspect, the police usually check him or her for weapons. Only then do they read the person his or her rights, before placing them under arrest and taking them to the police station. No suspect who is under arrest can have access to a gun. If he did, then the police officer who performed the arrest must be the most mentally dull person on God’s green Earth. What happened here is reminescent of the shooting of a young black man by Oakland Transit police officer Johannes Mehserle a few years back. It was murder, pure and simple.

  4. Not only from the cops, but from each other.

  5. No over site

  6. Katherine Conner

    They do not do enough about police brutality against black people, and other minorities. This is outright butchery and defiance of the laws, that these law authorities have taken an oath to uphold.

  7. What are my thoughts on what really happened here you ask? Another black man was murdered. Now what should the question (or at least one question) be? How much more can and/or will black people take? And why don’t we get mad anymore?! I mean…where are we when we need us…?

  8. There is an unspoken rigth of passage to kill people of color in america for a few years now. There are no consquences to white police offers throught the USA to kill at random, I am a female and I,m very uncomfortable moving about in this country..Evil reigns especially if your willing to pull the tiger on hand cuffed and unarmed males of color in America and armen Law enforcement..

  9. Murder plain and simple. Cold blooded murder.

  10. Policeman is lying, he didn’t kill himself but if mom do not have any money to hire a good lawer, there will be nothing done.

  11. Dat dont make no sence

    Its a shame nobody value an no ther person life they will habe to answer to the almighty god one daycops dont realize they have males in their family how would they like it if another officer gunned down one of their family memners

  12. Have Gun Will Travel via Your Local White Racist Police Department.

  13. You know how cops are these days, they will always cover thier asses and each other after shooting a black person, especiall if the victim is either unarmed, surrendering or in this case handcuffed. The cops hve no respect the minority these days.
    We all know that. But there is no way that the victim had killed himself hadcuffed, and that one of the cops executed him. Be realistic who can shoot themselves in the head handcuffed. And the officers did state that they had searched him twice, but how did they missed the gun, unless on the other hand one of the officers used his service weapon. But to end this disgraceful and sick conversation, althouh the Police Depatment is investigating the incident, if the officer involved walks, I will not be suprised, because this isnt the first time. And to prove my point visit this website it is…. http://www.theroot.com/multimedia/beyond-trayon-black-and-unarmed.

  14. No question, police shot him.

  15. They are effin serpent liars. I think there is a Bullseye on the destruction of black people, especially black men by three devil advocates. I think it is in retaliation for a black man being in office as well as all the pent up hatred & racism. And because these wicked whites can & get away without being held accountable for most of their crimes. Look at the prison ratio. These wicked whites are out of control and SADLY you have black deceivers ruining, telling lies on each other & setting up innocent blacks for the wicked white viper. JeffCrow is alive and free to rain evil on blacks with unaccountable reckless abandon.

  16. I wonder they treat this police officer like a suspect? Gun residue test, Splatter patterns, etc.? Please keep this story in front of the public……

  17. Man, If there’s a riot behind this maybe The biggest “Gang” in America (The Police) will finally get the message.

  18. You’re right Nellis. We have to be equally outraged by shootings whether by cops or street thugs. I would go so far as to say we should be even more distrubed when the crime is committed by one of our own. I expect better from those in the house than those outside it. How are we going to stop them from disrespecting us when we do so much to disrespect ourselves?

  19. Last two times I was cuffed my damn hands wuZ put behind my back, and wuz let go both times……Cause I didnt do nothin,,,so,,if this man was shot..hand s behind back,,come on now,,,and he looks like JESUS<<did anyone else think that? I mean how we think that Jesus looked…wow…….guess we need to get on the boat anf go back to our homeland

  20. Both officers should be fired and jailed since the other officer obviously was there and witnessed the shooting. They should be given a LIE DETECTOR TEST, and then we will know for sure. I bet a lot of this foolishness and terrorist type behavior would stop then. What do you think people?

    A lie detector test should be the law of the land for all law enforcement who threatens or shoots an individual. Why not; they have all sorts of laws and rules for the American People

  21. Fuckin savages

  22. The negro might have had his gun up is azz, as has happened a couple of times in the past few months.

    Negroes are very creative when it comes to shoving things up their ass.

  23. If you keep repeating this BS someone who is naive will believe it.

  24. These are the stories we hear about, but there are so many more. This is during the “Obama” era where “black” people ‘African Americans’, are still convinced that Mr. Obama is a functional “president”, and that he should be considered a man for the people! This subject isn’t about Obama but it does (or should) give us a clear idea of just how safe we are in this very ‘Anglo-dominant’, blood thirsty, vile social structure!
    You must not forget what kind of people took this country from the Natives, and what kind of people shipped our ancestors here to enslave them. The descendants of the earlier hoards of tyrants are in full control today no matter what they would have you believe and believe it or not and no matter whether you believe in their religions or not they have a target painted on our backs or heads as it were!

    • How can Obama be held responsible for what these officers did to this youngman or for the racist bigotry that exists in the justice system which has existed since slavery?!

    • FAST FORWARD 50 YRS AND GET WITH THE PROGRAM, STOP USING THAT 1970’S BLACK HISTORY MOMENT FOR EVERY PROBLEM IN YOUR LIFE! THEY DON’T GIVE A DAMN BECAUSE WE DON’T GIVE A DAMN! WHEN BLACK MEN VALUE THEIR LIVES AND STOP KILLIING EACH OTHER, MAYBE OTHER RACES WILL STOP KILLING BLACK MEN. AND ON TOP OF IT ALL, WHEN YOU DO KNOW WHO DID IT, YOU SIT ON YOUR STEPS ALL CLOSED LIPPED SCARED TO SAY WHO DID IT! WHO TOLD YOU IT WAS “SNITCHING” TO REPORT THE PERSON WHO KILLED YOUR LOVE ONE? WHO CONVINCED YOU THAT YOU WOULDN’T BE “DOWN” IF YOU DID. DUMBEST SHIT I HAVE EVER WITNESSED!

  25. Every time I hear the term minority, Black, Negro Gang Banger etc.. and the cry for justice from a “Lover With No Heart”, Peace from disenfranchised young men in our communities / of a deracinated people it makes me cringe. Our time is up as slaves for this unjust system you know. When will we recognize it as a people. We all know the problem but we keep trying to hold it up, until we get a blessing from Jesus, instead of taking responsibility to make the change. I say lets exit and go home an help build Africa. I’ve been there many times you will love it!!!

    • Jesus is a ‘figment’ of the ancient white-man’s imagination of which they conveniently passed to our ancestors, and they passed it down the line to us! Many native American were murdered because they would not accept the “white man’s” religious “God” beliefs and their humanly concocted “bible”, but I think our ancestors were desperate enough to grasp anything their slavemasters would share with them. The acceptance of the Anglo Saxon’s religious machinations probably save a lot of our ancestors from murder by hanging burning, and shooting. But it didn’t stop rapes and selling of black families etc by the white religious zealots! Nevertheless religious belief appears to be an addictive ‘spike’ to the brain that hangs on and influences people throughout their lives regardless of the examples which show that it’s a deep mental con!

      That said. This may have saved many of our ancestor’s lives but it inadvertently helps to divide and conquer us without using violence! These tools are used around the world in different forms but with the same results and effect on the throngs of ignorant, easily-conditioned people. This is one of the reasons we are a destroyed community which will never find unity even if the white-man would allow us to be 45 plus million strong, which would present a threat to them!

      They take down whole African nations, so we shouldn’t be a threat to them, but that is how they handle us.

      Using Obama to serve their needs is one of their usual type of tools. We (many of us) are so deft and conditioned, that we can barely see our hands in front of our faces, let alone the constant onslaught of schemes and conspiracies against us! For some of us the facts and examples show an obviously very serious problem, but for many who are too out of touch with reality and filled with religious fantasy very little can be seen in it’s proper form! Ironically the ‘Anglo-elite’ control the majority of the white population this same way. The whole population is subjected to a constant barrage of abuse and fraud by the elite in true power, and we can’t even see it as it is!

      • Jesus Christ existed before the foundation of the world. He is God in the flesh and He is seated at the right hand of the Father! Some black people are going to spend an eternity separated from God because the devil, the real enemy, has been able to “deceive” them into believing the lie that you are perpetuating in your post. I pray that your eyes are open to the truth of God’s Word.

  26. Salenegtupues, you racist son——-. Why don’t u try sticking your tongue up your azz? What u probably meant to say was that white people, and not just policemen, r not at all creative when it come to lying about their treatment on BLACKS. The problem is nothing is ever done about their hatred and bigotry, therefore, they already know they will never be held accountable for the injustices regardless, of how dumb their excuses for their behavior.

  27. They took or proverbial stance from the Black community when the Black Panthers disengaged. They would observe the arrests of community members in an effort to ensure no rights were violated. The inability to trust the white law and powers that be were questioned then, and it appears the the African American male is being annihilate physically and psychology every time they enter the criminal justice system.

  28. I remember having a “black” mayor of Los Angeles here named Tom Bradley. Although he did a lot for his black friends close to him and in office his rule did not stop the ruthless L.A. police department, the FBI, and CIA from purposely dumping crack cocaine into our neighborhoods and creating a wave of gang violence and prison incarceration that may not have been accomplished as easily without the convenience of a ‘black mayor’.
    Life for many African Americans was worse than ever and finally after so much police abuse and Rodney King, we had another riot, which signaled the final period of “The Honorable Mayor Tom Bradley’s” rule. They actually gave him his position after our first riot and took it away after the second riot. The main thought here is that although the white-dominant elite will place a black man in a seemingly powerful position of power his actual power is limited and there is always an anterior motive for the whites allowing an African American to represent their interests! Meanwhile we have no real power base nor do we have any community leaders strong enough to protect us from any attack by hateful racist police and politicians etc! Those of us who have not studied true US history, have not studied the machinations of politics, judicial, military, and police, are unprepared mentally to understand just how deceptive, vile and vicious, the “whites” in power are. Or just what lengths they go to to get what they want from everyone! They have no racial preference when it comes to taking the wealth of others but they will always attack and take from ‘people of color’ first!

    It no longer matters who we vote for (if it ever has) we are sitting ducks. But whats worse, we are ignorant and mentally conditioned like sheep waiting to slaughter. Know who you are and exactly where you are!

  29. Police? don’t let me start. White of black, soon as thy put on the free clothes, gun in waist, they think they are god almighty.

  30. LaQualla WaltonTatum

    Let’s say they did miss the gun after petting him down twice? Who’s at fault? The police for missing it. But that’s not the case. They shot that boy. Either way it goes, they did it and they are liable and the punishment should fit the crime.

  31. Amendment 13 – Slavery Abolished

    1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

    2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

  32. Denver Police is good for killing (the black man) I notice for last three years since I have been viisiting Denver, There have been an couple of incidents where there has been killing upon blacks. I remember one incident where this man where killed in jail, last year at city Park another man killed at the hand of an police officer now here is another man is killed by an Denver police officer.

  33. Point is:
    Slavery was never fully abolished. The word “except” says it all.
    Except as a punishment for crime where of the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within heUnited States. Once you are convicted of anything, the law has the ability to do what it wants to you as a convicted criminal. And the Judges, District Attorneys, police officers, etc. enforcers of the law are doing what they want without anyone questioning the act of violence.

  34. It’s straightforward. The police shot and killed him. What black man is arrested without being thoroughly searched. These murderers who shot this guy must be jailed. There’s simply no kind of logical explanation for why this happened. It’s a shame when you are unsafe while riding inside a police car just to be booked. If this guy had a gun, why didn’t he shoot the cops in the head. Now, that would make more sense. It’ll be interesting to hear the cop’s explanation of how a handcuffed man could shoot himself in the head unless he’s Houdini.

  35. Wow!!!! Black men have no chance. Police killing them off and they’re killing themselves as well. .. WTH!!!

    • The ‘Anglo-elite’ learned how to get people to kill each other a very long time ago! The Romans won many of their battles by deception, conspiring and lies, and In the book ‘The Art of War’, divide and conquer is taught to be one of the best tools at dividing an already mentally confused segment of people. It gets easier with practice and better advanced tools! The true stories show how these tactics are used all over the world by ‘the usual suspects’ with very few the wiser.

      Our whole African American population is under constant scrutiny and targeted on many levels! It’s made easier because we are very naive and overly conditioned by our unsuspecting ancestors, etc.

      The ‘elite’ turn people against each other by suggestions and/or payments among other methods…If you think hard enough you might come up with some simple methods yourself. Some people have done this without realizing they were using time tested methods. Black people should be more aware of their true environment and the people who really run the country! “Whites” should also be aware that they too, are being manipulated, lied to and used as well.

    • we will be just fine just got to stop what we know is doing this to us…far as the white man that kill black they are kkk….and fight to get our land to rebuild…and stop all these problems our self….the drugs and aids…..

  36. His mother did say that he is left-handed,and he was shot into his right temple(while handcuffed),by himself! WizardG,all praises be to what you express,cause the deal is up,it is we who must begin to see that we are a foregone conclusion to the white boy!All that has been voiced to us by our Elder Brothers,has not signified sufficiently to our people,such that,y virtue of the truthful knowledge,wisdom,and understsnding,we would come to know that the whites are our “enemies,”cause they definitely know that we are theirs! Though we comment on what is that we all know to be true,are we prepared to channel our indignation and shocked chagrine to a place where it is that we may come together in a common bond to destroy our need to imitate the imitator,and reestablish our manly human-ness? Surely we all know the answer to that question. UNITY OF THE SPIRIT IN THE BOND OF PEACE!

  37. have they stop killing us and they want either…because blacks are fighting for the wrong stuff….like they can’t build…the most powerful…system is the food system….but no that cracker will not stop killing black and mexican spanish….until they reorganize…and don’t stop…the police system control local government…local goverment is the united states of america

  38. This is a shame, there does not seem to be any remorse or need to try to hide anymore. I am ashamed.

  39. that crack will keep on killing black and he use the drugs for his excuse….the farming industry is and will all wasy be the most powerful system in the world….the melanoma cancer white man will continue to kill the black men…simple as it gets….until we clean it up…fight for the right kind of power…land reform…people will help us to build and grow but we got to do it also…..

  40. we should orgnize and fight back…..or just be come MOB LIKE…FINE THEIR CHILDREN AND KIDS…AND LET THEM KNOW YOU WILL STOP…BECAUSE WE KNOW WHO YOU AND YOU CHILDREN ARE….AND PAY BACK IS HELL…I GOT MY GLOVES AND MY SKI MASK ON SENDING A MASSAGE….THIS IS FOR OUR BROTHER…BUT I ALL WAY SMILE IN THE PUBLIC WITH THEM…YOU GOT TO UNERSTAND HOW THE M.O.B WORK….ALL THE EMPLOYERS AND THEIR KIDS…..BUT I ALL WAYS SMILE IN PUBLIC WITH THEM….THIS IS BUSINESS AND PERSONAL

  41. What? Didn’t Malcolm X reminds years ago that “America don’t love us?’ And If I misquoting Malcolm X please forgive me.

  42. Michael Flannery

    Waal, y’all know some o’ these boys are sooo limber, kinda like contortionist folk. They got real long arms an’ real big hands. So I guess this guy kinda hid that ol’ gun inside his palm whilst these poor unsuspecting white boys were rightfully han’ cuffin’ him, an’ redin’ his Belinda rights, an’ then using his favoured left hand he musta kinda swivelled his skinny ol’ shoulders, stretched his oh so long arms, and placed that ol’ bullet in his right temple.
    Ain’t no way that the cops could’ve anticipated that now is there?
    Why is all you folks trying to make something sinister outa this poor and simple sooicide, by a guy so shamed of what he done, breakin’ the law an’ all?

  43. Black men need to stop shooting one another and pick up arms against those that are killing them. Stop killing one another and start killing the white racist police officers that are shooting us down like dogs in the streets with any and all opportunity that arise. What are we waiting for? This has got to stop and its up to us to stop it. No court is ever going to convict a white police officer for the murder of a Blackman. Think about it!

  44. Let’s get back to the true spirituality.

    Take out the drums and begin to pray and play those vibes.

    Praaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

    Too much freedom to do wrong: selling drugs, missing court dates, involvement with the courts, crime etc., leads to this, imprisonment, graves.

    When the concerned unite and protest, you shall witness the God in us as a people of all races!

  45. You wanna hear from your readers??? For what? It was MURDER plain and simple!!!

  46. Unless he’s Dhalsim from Street Fighter how he ended being shot don’t make any sense another explanation needed is why would he have a gun in the first place in the back of a car somebody lying.

  47. There is a war coming, it will be on our own soil. To defend yourself against that which poses to govern us, we have been betrayed. America has lost everything “star spangled” about her, and it is time to accept the facts, arm yourselves, protect yourselves, we can blindly turn our heads when a wrong deed is done to another person, but eventually, they will come knocking on your door.

  48. These people go to church and call themselves christians. They serve their father the devil. I have news for those murdereres. God sees them and theres no place for them in Gods Kingdom. They are so consumed with hate and we that are true believers have to pray for our sons. Those eyes will haunt them for the rest of their lives. Pray and vote. Evil is trying to take over. bet they are republicans.

  49. you cannot shoot your self in the head while handcuffed

  50. FOR THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN HE WAS KILLED BY TWO WHITE MEN WITH BADGES. THEY WILL NEVER BE PROSECUTED. JUST LIKE IN LOUISVILLE KY. THE POLICE KILLED A HANDCUFFED BLACK MAN HE WAS OLD. THEY SHOT HIM 12 TIMES OR MORE. GOD IS OUR WITTNESS.

  51. yes you can shoot yourself in the back of the head dumbass,,what doesnt ever happen is cops missing a gun twice. These pigs murdered that man. An American man was murdered and these pigs are going to prison.

  52. yes you can shoot yourself in the back of the head dumbass,,what doesnt ever happen is cops missing a gun twice. These pigs murdered that man. An American man was murdered and these pigs are going to prison.

  58. Summary execution is not a part of the judicial process. The Police Department are there to serve and protect. They are to be officers of the Court. Maybe we should have accountability from the top down. Did the Judge issue a kill order????? The Pittsburgh Police Department used to do executions if people ran from them in the 1960’s. This behavior is re-emerging. This is as bad as Police Chief Rizzo, with the help of The FBI, bombing a Black Neighborhood in Philadelphia. Older people remember that. There are sinister forces at work in our police departments. It is compounded by shrinking state and local budgets. The Office of Homeland Security will train local citizens to keep their neighborhoods safe. Write Napolitano and the Justice Department for citizen guidelines. There are security experts in The Nation of Islam also who may consult with you. The police do not bother secure communities.

  59. Really???? Come on now, how stupid do they think we are…who on earth would really believe this….handcuffed and shot self in head….hmmmm how feasable is that….maybe if he shot himself in the ass, but not the h ead….Prior to being handcuffed, one is searched by police….so you tell us the police missed the gun…I don’tthink so…This my friends was a murder plain and simple….let’s see what happens to the officers who were present….

  60. It is open season on our black men we can not allow this to happen. Even those who are sworn to protect us are taking our lives. We have to stand up or it will continue on…..

  61. Anyone with common sense can see that the police shot and killed Chavis and now is trying to cover it up. Dogs get treated better then black males. African American lives are just as precious as other races. Racism, Hatred and Ignorance are destroying the USA. What a sad day in America.

  62. We shall watch the investigation closely.

  63. Stephanie L. Kennedy

    What kind of people dp these cops think that people are. Here you have a young man sitting in the back of a police car and they want you to believe that he shot hisself in the head. Come on now, what????? Are these cops stuck on stupid or they must think that everyone has bolts in their neck, where our head screws on and off. what made them shoot him in the head. I can”t see someone killing their selves over a missed court date,unless they are up for the death penalty and then they will already be in custody. This needs to be investigated throughly. What do some of these cops think? That it is open season on our young black children.

  64. Since these racist coppers want to play the ignorance card I believe they should be removed from the force due to their incompetence. They searched this man twice and were incapable of detecting the alleged gun they claim he had. They are a disgrace to the police department that hired them and the department should be embarrassed to have such incoherent individuals working under their jurisdiction. Who in their right mind within that department would feel safe or trust one of them to watch their backs in the field? They should be fired at once due to their stupidity and lack of ability. But we all know they purposely executed that black man. Hopefully, forensics will prove that point and the test result won’t mysteriously be tampered with or deemed inconclusive. I truly do hope that Chavis Carter’s mother has the resources to hire a good lawyer who will make sure that these scoundrels never work on any police force ever again.

  65. Nick Williams Pottstown Pa

    It’s like open season on the young black men in this country

  66. The Police Shot & Killed That Young Man Because He Was African American. We Have Some Really Racist Police Out There. No Way A Handcuffed Person Could Have Shot And Killed Himself.

  67. There is an unspoken ‘blue code’ among many police to the effect that they will cover up for one anothers’ brutality. By this code, it is also a crime deserving of brutal punishment for a private individual to insult, or to impugn the integrity of, a police officer. The extra-judicial punishment for such an offense is often death, with the murder covered-up in accordance with the ‘blue code’. Often, police will carry an unregistered, untraceable gun in a patrol car ‘just in case’ of a situation like this, so the gun can be planted on the falsely-accused ‘offender’. On the face of it, this appears to be just such an example of applying the ‘blue code’, very much like the false accusations and subsequent imprisonment of Philadelphia video journalist Mumia abu-Jamal.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mumia_Abu-Jamal

  68. Those cops killed that young man plain and simple….the same thing happen here in Tampa Florida bout two weeks ago police was and they shot an unarmed 16 year old boy in the back while his hands was up in the and the teenager didn’t have anything to with why ask they was called abduction after they shot himhighihey gave eachother high fives so its a war coming and its against whites verses all minorities….

  69. It’s only a matter of time before the same type of incidents happens to them and their children! Just remember goodness will always prevail and evil will be done away with. The people that are spreading their hatred for black people will pay today on earth and in the afterlife if they do not ask God for forgiveness! I just don’t want to be around to see some of them get karma because it’s going to be horrible to watch with all the evil things they have sown to African Americans.

  70. How in the hell are you gonna shoo
    t yourself and handcuffed from behind???
    This makes NO SENSE AT ALL! I hope Chavis parents sue the pants off that police deparment!
    GOD rest his soul….

  71. from the angle of the bullet entry, you can determine if the suspect shot himself. From the back, with handcuffs and aiming up to shot himself in the head, I don’t see it and that has to be proven with experts.

  72. How in the heck can you shoot yourself when you are handcuffed from behind???

  73. Where is the Obama out rage? Why should he be given a pass? He has done nothing for Black people especially the black male so why should we support him this election?

  74. All these cop killings of Black people continue without challenge from any real Gov entity especially from the in-justice dept. This Obama house nigga sees no harm at all against our people from all these assaults. It is time to rethink our call for peaceful protest.

  75. i read every comment and continue to be amazed at how confused “negroes” are. Sandra Shabazz is correct.the solution to police brutality is simple. it’s not prayer and it’s not the slave master’s injustice system.this has been going on since the devil came to Africa. when the Black man decides to stand up like the taliban and organize himself to deal punishing blows to the devil then maybe he’ll have a chance at some liberation. stop loving house negroes like obama and stand up Black man!

  76. I’m sorry, but I believe the police version of this story. If they had planned to murder him, it would have at least been outside the squad car. They are still going to be disciplined for not conducting a thorough search of a suspect, before putting him in the car. This is a gross violation of police procedure. Second, it could be that he accidently shot himself, trying to get to the gun, and force the police to let him go.

  77. Damn police!! Racists, murderers, we need to police the poice. Is this America or Irac, I think Irac is safer for blacks. Sad!!!!!

  78. Mamy years ago there was a story going around about a Black Man who was found wrapped in chain and drowned dead. Said the White police, “That ol’ boy shoulda known better than to try to swim across the lake carryin’ all that chain.” Apparently things haven’t changed much since the days that story was going ’round.

  79. Raphael B Simpson

    This is another example of W M J , Just US.

    Ray

  80. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST AWFUL LIE’S THE POLICE HAVE EVER PUT TOGETHER,THERE IS NOWAY THE YOUNG SHOT HIMSELF,THE SHOT HIMSELF AND NOW THEY ARE TRYING TO COVER FOR EACH OTHER.THE PEOPLE IN ARKANSAS SHOULD BE OUTRAGED BECAUSE IF THEY GET AWAY WITH THIS IT MAKES IT POSSIBLE FOR MORE OF THIS WHITE SUPREMACY BEHAVIOR TO COME.EVERYONE BLACK ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO SHOULD READ ” THE ART OF WAR” BY SUN TZU BECAUSE OUR ASSES ARE AT WAR AND MOST OF US DON’T EVEN KNOW IT.BLACK PEOPLE WHO HAVE CLEAN RECORD’S PLEASE PURCHASE A FIRE ARM ASAP!!YOU MAY NEED IT SOON…

  81. All our lives we had to fight just because of the color of our skin. God made us all and broke each mole when he was done. I think of Rodney King first of all. Then this happens is just in justice to the stereo misfit we always been in. Come on AR police department. Who is looking stupid?

  82. The police are murdering blacks and hispanics all over the country. If you haven’t heard about Kenneth Chamberlain, Sr., who was slaughtered in White Plains, NY, last November, check this out: Killed at Home: White Plains, NY Police Called Out on Medical Alert Shoot Dead Black Veteran, 68 http://bit.ly/NdyKFL

  83. no way could this brother have a gun,and then shoot himself.first the cops search us very good,they don’t miss a spot,second it is standard to hand cuff us in the back,so even if he had a gun how could he manage to shoot himself.third he was shot on the right side of his temple,but his mother said he was left handed,and if he was hand cuffed in the front why did’nt he shoot the cops.

  84. This is ridiculous. I’m not understanding how police officer’s just do what they want when they want.
    I’ve met some policemen who were very nice, this was long ago.
    I guess now they just don’t care at All, if they get caught in a lie. They feel like the whole department is going to back them up anyway.
    This lady should sue the department.
    This is obviously some foul play at it’s worst.

    People in America are not safe, that’s why people are going back to their original countries.
    I wish I had one to go back to.

  85. Aren’t ppl supposed to be handcuffed and your arms are behind you right?……………how in the hell did he shoot himself in the right temple………..I hope they get right with God…….bc they gonna need him.

  86. WizardG you said “elite in true power’. Are you for real. The only true Power is Universal Truth. True Power will not kill a young man and say he killed himself. We may be conditioned and lied to, but God Almighty is still in control. We can all drive this evil from the face of the earth by refusing to use our bodies, minds and souls to keep the adversary’s kingdom supplied with and by the assets that God Almighty supplies us with. Total Freedom is not purchased with a certain demeanor that society forces upon us, but Truth-
    Universal Truth can set us free should we take the time to see and hear with the eyes and ears that are Divinely opened. I pray that we all agree to thrive in Love, Life, Truth, PEACE, Hope, Faith, Knowledge, Wisdom, Unnderstanding, Mercy and Grace.

  87. Israeline. Get outta here with all that bullshit. The Universal Truth is whites are the devil. Unconditional love can go to hell right along with them devils

  88. the police killed him……… real talk

  89. there needs to be more outrage. i haven’t even heard about this on the local news stations (not surprisingly) but isn’t there an NAACP in Houston? aren’t there black politicians and churches there? where’s Oprah? someone needs to get on this!

  90. somebody better do somthing about this shit. i haven’t heard anything on the news. isn’t there an NAACP there? arent there black churches there? where’s the press! what does Obama have to say! this is BOGUS. i am so tired of feeling powerless. i want to do more. how?

  91. This type of repugnance will continue to happen to black people until we start shooting back. You cannot in good conscience, blame this on the President, did you blame Bill Clinton for those redneck officers beating Rodney King. Bill Clinton incarcerated more blacks than any three Presidents combined, but you negroes love him. White people’s wanton disregard for black life and liberty is indicative of how they can murder and brutalize black people and find nothing wrong with it. Stop singing and start swinging

  92. Mac said pull the trigger kill a nigga he’s a hero. Yall think its a game

  93. My heart goes out to this bruh. If he was handcuffed, he should have never been shot. PoPo is lying and and will burn in hell for what he has done. Hope he’s not on paid leave during this investigation. They kill me when they do that.Why would you pay someone for doing wrong! Were there any witnesses? That community should raise plenty of hell like they did for Trayvon! Why is it that Blacks only stick together AFTER a tragedy???

  94. African Americans in the US and Africans throughout the diaspora need to organize! We are good at mobilization, just protesting verbally against injustice, such as racist police murders of black men, vigilante murders of young African Americans and the like. Yet, we need an effective concrete strategy to protect ourselves, our families and our communities from racist murdering police and drug dealing gang members who exploit their own communities. As long as we expect a “Savior”, like Obama; to give us our basic human rights, we will always be victims of this systematic, strategic and relentless extermination of our young black men. The Willie Lynch mentality is alive and well. When are you going to wake up Africans?

  95. they really need to start searching people better and maybe putting them in more restrictive restraints. this is so unfortunate and could have been avoided if the police had taken the proper precautions with this psychopath.

  96. SAYYEED MUHAMMAD

    THIS IS MORE OF THE SAME..THERE IS NO WAY IN THE HELL THIS MAN CAN SHOOT HIMSELF IN THE HEAD..THEY PAT U DOWN FIRST..SO IF HE DID THE POLICE STILL THE BLAME..

  97. People being left handed or right handed doesn’t matter with certain things, weapons included. I am left handed, but I use handguns in my right hand. Unless his mother witnessed him threatening people with his gun, her comment about the hand used is irrelevant. Also, what if he just used the one hand he got free?

    I am amused by the amount of people outraged by this. Oh no, he didn’t get to go to jail and cost us money. He skipped out on a court date, and had illegal drugs. He would have ended up dead anyways.

  98. SOMEBODY SHOULD PUT A $10,000 DOLLAR BOUNTY ON THE POLICE.

  99. if the police search this young man twice like they said how come no firearm was found on him prior to putting him n the car.. the police also mentioned that they heard a thumping noise indicating that he had shot himself wouldn’t that sound be louder thana thump??? that means in order for him to succeed in shooting himself in the temple he had to shoot a rubber bullet to bounce around in the car before it landed at his temple?!?! Wat da fuk???

  100. those police officers should be arrested immediately. why are they on leave? they should not get away with this. i hope the community fights back. this is an outrage!!!!!!! there is no way this man shot himself. what for? the community should do a protest and surround the police station that these police officers work at.

  101. People need to stop wanting for someone else to do something! Because there is only us! Make a change and a difference. Fight with your Power!!

  102. They did kill this young man and It’s so sad.. It has nothing to do with black and white. It happens to all races! This is just a very sad situation and I pray that his family get’s justice. I hope they go to jail it is ridiculous…

  103. You only hope that the young man’s death is FAIRLY investigated. This doesn’t pass the sniff test. Too many questionable deaths are happening to young african american males. This madness needs to stop – you have to put yourself in the mother’s shoes – would the officer (s) be willing to believe another officer if his child was in the back seat? This leaves you asking WHY?

  104. Thats the dumbest story the police ever gave. I mean think about thats impossible for someone to even shoot themself in the head handcuffed. If anyone belives that BS thier just as stupid as the cops who shot them. I seen my prayers and justice for this young mans mother I hope you get the justice you looking for . I hope the cops who did it go to jail and get the death penalty because thats wrong nobody deserves to get killed for no reason. Where is the cameras in the police cars I thought they have those because I mean that some BS . I hope this mother gets peace and closure for her son because they took her sons life. RIP CHAVIS

  107. that cop shot that man… not one bit of this story makes sense… that officer needs to be charged with capital murder for the execution of this man… someone call congress… my prayers are with this family.
