Front or Back

Victor White was arrested in Louisiana on drug charges. But what happened next is confusing, to say the least.

According to the Sheriff’s office, White – even though his hands were handcuffed behind his back – somehow managed to pull out a handgun he had hidden in his pants and then shot himself in the back.

That’s weird enough, but the autopsy performed by the Coroner’s Office claims that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the chest. Yes, somehow White managed to shoot himself in the chest, even though his hands were tied behind his back.

Meanwhile, the death was ruled a suicide. State police have stated that the gun used to kill White is not a weapon carried by the Sheriff’s officer.

Curiouser or curiouser.

My question is, given what has been going on with the police lately, do you believe their version of the story?

    No. This is something that happens periodically. Suspect gets killed, police realize there will be issues, and take advantage of circumstances. He probably did have the gun. He probably did struggle and try to pull it, and they stopped him.

    Happened in LA was I was a reservist, a cop killer was hiding out in the bush and when confronted by a SWAT officer and a regular patrol officer, he was shot once by the SWAT officer and then “as he was falling to the ground he inadvertently discharged his revolved twice into his own chest.”

    I didn’t believe it then either.

    IK, you didn’t bother to mention Mr. White’s race — as a teaser, perhaps? Of course, when I looked it up, Mr. White turned out to be a 22-year-old black man. It’s disheartening when one doesn’t really even need Google to know the race of a suspect.

    Have you seen the autopsy results? Now it turns out that Mr. White, with his hands cuffed behind him, managed to commit suicide by shooting himself in the chest — from the front.

    Oh, these young black criminals are diabolically clever!
