My ass.

MFA:

"She was handcuffed, and she managed to put a revolver in her mouth while handcuffed. That's what the investigator told me last night," the dead woman's mother Dawn Wilson told an ABC news station. "In all of her life I have never known of her to shoot a gun, own a gun, or even hold a gun."

Had she recently crossed Hillary? Lots of people die that way.

Just kidding.

It's ridiculous to believe that if her hands were still cuffed behind her when the ME showed up, that she could have done it. The cops are lying about something. Either they didn't cuff her and she did it or they cuffed her and executed her. Only two possibles.

It's time to start charging these cops with murder.

"Reports say one officer was wearing a body camera at the time of the stop but it was knocked off during the struggle with Medlin and turned off when it hit the ground. It was off during the shooting and did not capture the teen's death. After Medlin was detained, the camera was reattached and turned back on to record, police said but the Chesapeake Police Department declined to release the body camera footage. "

What a weird coincidence.

When Americans see a cop they don't feel protected, they feel paranoid

"Badge polishers seem oddly absent on this thread"

they will be along any minute to preach and opine that if you don't want to get shot, don't do a crime ---- total oblivious this girl had not committed a crime

but take not, just like jeffyj, mustangs attempt at humor has done nothing but put his hatred for women on full display.

342nd police killing for 2019. Need to shoot a few more people to meet last years body count

Given this ....

Medlin reportedly swallowed a bag with possible drugs in it at the time of the arrest and is currently facing drug charges. - FTA

I wonder if Medlin's story will be? If he gets off, but corroborates the police story, should be interesting to watch.

just like jeffyj, mustangs attempt at humor has done nothing but put his hatred for women on full display.

I have noticed this, and I am disappointed ...

But I have seen you say some pretty vile things, putting your hatred of homosexuals on full display.

Yes, I have written some vile things, (about conservatives) but I don't recall being evil to homosexuals

But I will take you at your word

Obviously she shot herself through the mouth before she put the cuffs on herself - an obvious case of death by environmental lead poisoning. It was probably a protest, though I can't believe she didn't leave a manifesto explaining everything.

I can't believe how you liberals always jump to conclusions - it's the Earth that hates us, or there would be no such thing as lead poisoning.

WTF!?
ANYONE who believes this account by police (girl shot herself in mouth while handcuffed with hands behind back, somehow also managed to find a gun not noticed by police, somehow managed to contort her hands and shoot herself, oh and by the way, the police camera conveniently fell off the uniform and miraculously clicked off just before the shooting),
ANYONE who believes this, stand on your head now.

All shot to death while handcuffed in patrol cars. All declared suicides.

There is some truth in the saying that the KKK traded their robes for badges

Why do you hate the police?

Oh yeah, past experiences.

I'm a veteran and you get maybe a few months off followed by a brief period of total terror. I had an uncle who was EMS and he drank himself to death after he retired. Didn't take long.

I've had my runins, but mostly in the past. Cops seem to be getting better at "rights-n-stuff".

It's normal and sensible to jump to the most reasonable conclusion, which is that the cops shot her in the mouth. It's called Occam's Razor.

We all know what happened: cops will cover up for informants. She had to die. Social Justice in the Drug War is at stake, sir.

Maybe she used her feet to shoot herself?

Or, maybe she was a Jedi and she used the force.

In 2018 in the continental US there were over 20 million traffic stops. 4 police officers were shot while making traffic stops.

www.npr.org

52 police were killed by gunfire 2 of those were shot by other police officers.

You can watch hour after hour on youtube of videos of police shootings and in very few of them are the officers in any danger. Our police have become cowards and we have given them code words that allow them to kill with impunity. All they have to do is say they feared for their life and they will not only not be punished, they will likely get paid time off during the investigation and sometimes a promotion or commendation

Maybe the gun went off accidentally when one of the cops was rogering his K9.

You have to look at the whole target/victim/person. If the the gun isn't aimed at you or a civilian, don't fire. Use harsh language and threats, charge with your pals, taser. But don't kill someone unless you absolutely mean it - you have to live with that for the rest of your life.

Was he wearing a turban? Was a goat present? It can be tough to make snap judgements.

Everybody sees that.

Cops don't carry revolvers anymore. Thugs do.

Ok, so a thug got into the cop car that she was handcuffed in, undetected in with 2 cops standing there, and shot her in the face?

Then that same thug got away without anyone seeing them?

Is that where you're going here?

It's called a "throw-down gun", dork. Didn't you get the memo?

She was killed to protect the source which the corrupt cops used to steal drug money, plus... well, we've all heard things like this play out in court before.

I'm trying to make sense of the idea that cops would put a person in handcuffs, seat them in the car, then shoot them in the face.
Then expect to get away with it.

"Badge Polisher" may be unfair and inaccurate. I prefer "Cop -------."

Let's just remember that if you liberals get your way, cops like these will be arrested those who won't make cakes for gay weddings.

Will you cheer if "homophobes" are found dead in similar circumstances?
