Gee lemme see, first a handcuffed man manages to shoot himself in the head while in the back of a police car, now we have a 17 year old, who was handcuffed, who managed to hang himself while in the back of a police car. First off it is IMPOSSIBLE to hang yourself while in a seated position, even more impossible if you're handcufffed and TRULY IMPOSSIBLE considering teh seat belt is NOT a ligature that does not move. A seat built does not lock into position until you are actually in a collision, so how was the tension possible on the belt to HANG A PERSON?

17 Year Old Hangs Himself in the Back of Police Car?
As reported by the Indianapolis Star, the Anderson Indiana Police are claiming that a 17 year old boy has committed suicide in the back seat of a police car.
Sandefur said the 17-year-old's hands were cuffed behind his back and that the teen was placed alone in the patrol car's back seat as officers processed the other juvenile and the man. While officers handled the two other suspects, Sandefur said the teen somehow maneuvered his cuffed hands from behind him to his front and then used a seat belt as a ligature to hang himself.I do not know what to say. I cannot believe the story the police are reporting. I have nothing below the squiggle but empty sadness.
