Thoroughly searching suspects before putting them in squad cars is no longer emphasized in police training?
 
2012-12-06 01:43:41 AM  
short answer, yes they should have thoroughly searched him. Longer answer, It's more difficult to thoroughly search a person who is physically resisting being taken into custody.

but don't they make kids go through medical detectors in the big city schools nowadays?

I guess if the gun was tucked in the back waistband of his pants and his hands were cuffed behind his back he could have gotten it and pulled the trigger, but that would be a hell of an effort and probably explains why he is still alive and not dead after being shot in the back of the head.

Yeah, up and out could easily miss things.

An execution style straight in shot, on the other hand...

Did he drag himself 50 yards into the woods and hide the gun afterwards?

As the police demonstrated last time, if you have a gun completely handy, it's entirely possible to laboriously contort yourself into a position that, absent observation, will allow you to shoot yourself in the head while in handcuffs.

1. Don't shoot yourself over losing some girl.
2. You're in high school. Go sleep with her best friend.

I know what you're getting at but you'll be surprised at what a suicidal person can do when they really want to die. An anecdotal there have been cases where a person shot themselves six times in the head before the gun went dry and they still live. One EMT talked about how they had to haul the same girl from underneath a train twice.

Look at the woman. She has haunches like a racehorse. Her standing 40 must be in the low sixes.

And the guy has a fatty hump that would make a camel jealous. Lady cop can't run down the perp? Well, endurance cop is on the scene.

Pairing these two creates an unbeatable police team.

Firstly: Cops did it, fark the pigs. Secondly, I have, while handcuffed behind my back, in the back of a cop car, managed to retrieved a dime bag from my front pocket, got it into my mouth and swallowed it. And i'm not even black.

Geez Louise, just let the kid off himself. It will make all of his problems go away. Well, at the very least he will not longer be aware of those problems, so either way is good.
 
2012-12-06 04:27:27 AM  
Since there's no real reason why the police would have needed to shoot this kid (they had taken him into custody for the sole purpose of making sure he didn't hurt himself), and since he was suicidal, it's entirely possible he found a way to shoot himself in the head.

It's also possible that the kid was not cuffed behind the back, but was cuffed in front. It took a second reading of the atrociously-written article, but apparently, the guy who was referenced being cuffed behind and who shot himself in the head was a DIFFERENT person, and managed to fatally shoot himself, a completely different, and entirely more suspicious circumstance. That was this guy, in the last two paragraphs:

It echoes a story in July, when an Arkansas man, Chavis Carter, 21, fatally shot himself in the head while handcuffed in the back of a police car after he was picked up during a traffic stop.

Officials say he was handcuffed from behind and had been searched twice for weapons. An autopsy report found he tested positive for methamphetamine, anti-anxiety medication and other drugs.


That guy DIED, presumably, since he was autopsied; the kid in the main story lived, and therefore probably was not autopsied later. Therefore, it's entirely possible he was cuffed in front, which makes it conceivable he could have retrieved a gun and shot himself. He might have leaned over to hide his actions from the cops, and shot himself in the back of the head instead of the front or side.

Normally, all suspects are cuffed behind, but it might be since this was a minor, and not being treated as a criminal but merely as a troubled kid in need of help, that he was not searched thoroughly and merely restrained in front because he wasn't thought to be a threat to the cops. It's a possible scenario, given the utter lack of detail in that awfully-written story.

I don't find that to be completely accurate. It should read, "Making gullible Americans feel better about Police State life by misinforming them about the UK. Because a page-hit from a tubby, clueless dumb-ass is just as good as one from a middle-class Conservative OAP in the Home Counties".

Much better.
 
2012-12-06 04:45:51 AM  
Legal Speculation: If the kid was suicidal and the police were there to intervene before he killed himself, and he somehow manages to shoot himself INSIDE the cop car while in police custody, who will be charged? Will he face charges for shooting himself? Will the cops face charges for letting an armed and suicidal kid try and pull a Kobain in their car? With neither face charges as this is just a horrific tragedy all around? Or will both parties face charges because gods forbid someone doesn't pay a lawyer?

Lawl this. My girlfriend in high school cheated on me so I farked her best friend in retaliation. I got caught because she showed up unexpectedly at friend's house and I forgot to tame my post-sex hair. Then girlfriend was all butthurt and demanded to be let in on the action. Her best friend and I just looked at each other and we all stepped into the house for some more action. That's when I realized that it all was going to work out alright, and we're all three still friends today.

Actually, I think it is two cases where someone was cuffed in the backseat and both times they managed to conceal a gun and both times attempted suicide (with a 1-1 record). That makes for some seriously criminally negligent police work there.
