Jonesboro police shooting - TV anchor clears it up

Posted By on Fri, Aug 3, 2012 at 10:15 AM

I mentioned yesterday the national news coverage of the shooting death of a man handcuffed and sitting in the back of a Jonesboro police patrol car. The matter is under investigation. Police believe the man shot himself with a gun they'd failed to find in a search.

KAIT-TV anchorman Craig Rickert days ago pronounced this a non-event, Blue Arkansas reports in a continuing series on Rickert's political pronouncements.

Within hours of the shooting transpiring, Rickert was telling fans of his Facebook page that “they did check the suspect. it’s on tape. he had the gun stuffed very low in his pants.” and “You’d be surprised how flexible people can be. Trust me, nothing suspicious about this."
