      cynicism and skepticism. I certainly am and no matter what happened that young man died in police custody and as such that's on the officer that had him in custody. That's a huge professional failing but I don't think it likely that the investigation will be anything but professional and though.

      Also I wanted to point out it's entirely possible that he wasn't trying to kill himself. If you accept he had the weapon he could have simply been trying to hide it better either on his person or in the cruiser and the gun simply went off. But even if that's the case see my first point. Right now there's too many questions and not enough answers.

      You have a good night (unless you have further questions in which case I'll try and answer).
