Police reenact handcuffed man's death

CNN's Randi Kaye reports on the evidence in the case of 21-year-old Chavis Carter. Two weeks ago he was pulled over for driving suspiciously, and after searching, police found a small bag of marijuana. Carter was put into the rear seat of a Jonesboro, Arkansas squad car and handcuffed behind his back.

Police say he committed suicide, but his mother believes they are responsible for his death.  The department released a video reenactment of what they believe happened that day.

    Where is the gun that he shot himself with? It would obviously have still been in the car? The police also obviously would want to keep it for evidence? I didn't gather that the report even mentions this which would seem a glaring – obvious?

    I read CNN all day long.
    Perhaps b/c I don't have a life
    The markets are crap, and its tough
    making a buck as a stock broker
    What gets my goat and my girl friends panties
    is why in the hell do I have to watch those annoying infomercial
    b/f viewing what I want to watch.

    I'm at a point to tell CNN ... to GFY
