(NewsTarget) Arguing with airport security officials is now apparently risky to your life. Carol Anne Gotbaum, a 45-year-old mother who was arrested at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport after becoming irate over a missed flight, was later found dead in a law enforcement holding cell. The official story now appearing in the mainstream media -- for those people gullible enough to believe it -- is that the woman choked herself to death with her own handcuffs even though her hands were cuffed behind her back!
I've never actually seen anyone try to choke themselves to death with their own handcuffs, but I imagine it would be impossible to succeed at the effort. For one thing, even if you managed to grasp your own neck and choke off your blood supply until you lost consciousness, your arms would go limp and you'd no longer be able to continue choking yourself. Blood flow would be restored and you'd regain consciousness in a few seconds.
Everybody knows you can't choke yourself to death. Even Yahoo! Answers offers a short explanation of why: Click here to read "Why is it impossible to choke yourself to death?"
