“Something is seriously wrong with this picture,” Brown said.
As previously reported by NewsOne, this isn’t the first time that a handcuffed Black man has died under suspicious circumstances.
In August 2012, Chavis Carter, a 21-year-old Mississippi man, was shot to death in the back of a Jonesboro, Ark. Police Department squad car. Police claim that he pulled the trigger even though he was handcuffed and shot on the right side of the head.
Carter’s mother said her son was left-handed.
Jonesboro Chief of Police Micheal Yates says the scenario is not far fetched at all.
“The average person who has never been in handcuffs, that never been around inmates or people in custody would react exactly the same way you just did: ‘How could that be possible?’ Well, fact of it is, it’s very possible. It’s quite easy,” Jonesboro Chief of Police Micheal Yates told CNN.
