Quote from the Author Danette Chavis “Currently there are 7,340 signatures demanding 'nation wide' action! The numbers are continuing to climb and it could not have happened without the efforts of those who have been continuously 'sharing and reposting' it. Some like myself are even tweeting it. Yet and still, help is needed to really move forward it ways which cannot be ignored. I hope your join this effort by sharing and posting and realize 'every effort counts' - including yours!" -Danette Chavis 7/27/14 http://www.change.org/petitions/national-action-against-police-brutality

Jonesboro Arkansas police officials are still investigating the in custody death of Chavis Carter. Despite the unconcluded investigation, published reports indicate both officers who had custody and control of Carter at the time of his death were reinstated. Additionally, published reports say the autopsy findings conclude the death was a suicide. The Jonesboro Arkansas police department has released some arguably inconsequential police dash cam video. However, the Jonesboro Police Department has not released any video that was taken when the fatal shot occurred.
On Thursday September 6, 2012 at 6:00 PM eastern time, we will have a full discussion of this death in custody case along with autopsy reports and reenactments.
