Cops lie say handcuffed man committed suicide

According to autopsy results ruling Victor White III’s death a suicide, the 22-year-old was shot in the chest, not in the back, as an early police account claimed.

Louisiana man who state police claimed shot and killed himself in March while in police custody died, not of a gunshot wound to the back, as police had initially reported, but of a shot to the chest, according to an autopsy report, KATC reports.

The shooting occurred in the backseat of a patrol car after Victor White III was arrested for drug possession, KLFY notes. White’s hands were apparently cuffed behind his back as he was transported to jail. Once there, the 22-year-old reportedly did not want to get out of the patrol car. At some point, a gun that he was allegedly hiding in his pants appeared and he shot himself in the back, according to police reports.

However, according to KATC, the first page of the autopsy report, released by the Iberia Parish Coroner’s Office, details how White was shot in the chest, completely contradicting earlier police reports made after the fateful night in early March.

The bullet entered the young man’s chest and pierced his left lung and his heart before exiting around his armpit, according to the autopsy, which also called White’s death a “suicide.”

5. revised his conclusion and said he reached around and shot himself in the chest

. . .while handcuffed - this after TWO prior searches of the victim failed to produce any weapon.

2. There is so much wrong with this story...

that I can't think of where to begin.

I'll try this, though...

If the cops were stupid enough to cuff him and get him in the car without finding the gun, the gun must still be around, right? And it's easy enough to tell if the gun was fired, right? And not so tough to tell if it fired the bullet that killed him, right?

Just for shits and giggles, could they have been stupid enough to "forget" they cuffed him in front, which is probably against the rules.

4. Another young man protected to death by the police.

Were there any protests about it?
Did we hear about them if there were?
