what did the alabama sheriff say when he saw a black man that was pulled out of the bottom of the lake, found dead, and tied in chains?
Told him not to wear all that jewelry"
Those were jokes. But what has been happening to young black men while in the hands of law enforcement in this country is not funny.
The latest comes from the land of Bobby Jindal. Mr. Jindal is a man who does not understand the history of civil rights in this country. But I digress.
Back to the case of the magic bullet, compliments of yet another Southern police department.
"Louisiana state police are investigating the death Victor White, III, 22, who allegedly shot and killed himself while handcuffed in the back of a patrol car, reports The Advocate.
White was allegedly involved in an altercation and when deputies responded to the call they claim to have found illegal drugs on him which lead to his arrest. White was in handcuffs with his hands behind his back when he was killed, allegedly by his own gun — which conveniently wasn’t found during the search that led to his arrest. Read more below from The Advocate:
Once at the sheriff’s office, White became uncooperative and refused to exit the deputy’s patrol vehicle, reports CBS affiliate KLFY.
Trooper Stephen Hammons says White produced a handgun and fired one round, striking himself in the back.
White was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Sheriff Louis Ackal asked State Police to investigate the incident. State Police-led investigations in deaths involving officers are normal. “We’re investigating how he got the gun,” Hammons said late Monday. “It’s too early in our investigation to comment further.”
Rev. Raymond Brown, president of National Action Now of New Orleans, said Monday night that his organization is looking into White’s death.
“Something is seriously wrong with this picture,” Brown said. "
Reverend, that might be the understatement of the year.
