    Oh wait.

    No.

    No it doesn't. Not at all!

    Some lifer hanging himself in his cell is one thing. Sure, that happens. A seventeen year old kid pulling a Houdini on his cuffs, freeing himself just so he can blow his brains out with a gun the cops never found?

    Sorry slugger. Apples and blood-spattered oranges.

    Banking on the American people to be able to sort all this out and declare the adult in the room the winner is a very big bet. -Digby

      and firearms make attempts likely to be fatal.  There should be an autopsy and an investigation.  The car should be treated as a crime scene.
