Your probably wondering "Eric why are you petitioning them so early?" Well I'm here to break it down for you. The huffington post posted a version of what the police officer has said but many have their eyebrows raised. Here it is.
"A 21-year-old man was found shot in the head while handcuffed in the back of a patrol car Saturday night. Now police have launched an investigation to determine what happened.
Chavis Carter was a passenger in a pickup truck that was stopp
ed by police in Jonesboro, Ark., Saturday night, according to KAIT, an ABC-affiliated television station. An officer reportedly found some marijuana, and ran Carter's information. He was wanted on a warrant out of Mississippi, so officers placed him in a patrol car.
"As protocol, he was handcuffed behind his back, double-locked and searched," said Jonesboro Police Department Sgt. Lyle Waterworth in an interview with WREG-TV.
Just minutes later, police said they heard a thumping noise, turned around and found Carter shot in the head."
1.) If your hand cuffed especially in a back seat of a car how can you possibly do anything?
2.) He was LEFT HANDED. The bullet was in his right side of his head. Unless Mr. Carter has some type of special powers , I don't think he would be able to shoot that good.
The police that stated this story is lying. They are trying to cover it because they feel like they can. They feel "oh another black dude is dead. No would care." WRONG ! We do care. Ms. Carter (The mother) we all have a sense that the policeman is lying and we want a FULL investigation and not some half assed one. We want an arrest and a conviction because I believe in my heart this was cold blooded murder. Please sign this petition so we can get worldwide coverage. #StopKillingOurBlackMen
