  •  There is no evidence he shot himself yet either (4+ / 0-)

    except the word of the policeman.
    Like we got to hear George Z's story but Trayvon wasn't talking.

    It could be possible to shoot ones self accidentally or on purpose while handling a gun while handcuffed. Ob what did you base it being "VERY possible"? Have you done it, seen studies? How did the possibility earn a Very?

    We don't have facts and many cops are probably quite decent. It would also be an odd time to shoot someone, having driven him to the station already. None of that over-heated adrenaline stuff unless the cop was quick tempered and this was a really mouthy kid. If the cop was that bad he'd have some record of it.

    But forgive people's suspicions. Bad cops bring that down on all cops.
    and while you don't appreciate "hanging before trial mob mentality" being suspicious or doubtful is not the same as hanging mentality, it is simply not taking their word for what happened.
    and luckily whatever our opinion is it will not get him hung or make him dead.
