I've been hearing about the odd case of Sandra Bland. She had been arrested after a very tense traffic stop and then later found in her jail cell hanged. It seems since what happened to Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO that police have been taking a beating from the Black community.
I would dare say in some cases such as what happened to that man in South Carolina shot fleeing from police, rightfully so. In other cases I can't say it's in black & white but the story of Ms. Bland raises my eyebrow. Bland had actually moved to Texas to work at her college alma mater Prairie View A & M.
Officially her death is ruled a suicide and apparently there is evidence
Rightfully the fact that she was found hanging in a jail cell should raise all of our concerns whether or not you consider this a racial issue or not. Especially to determine if there was any foul play involved...
WGN-TV posted dashcam footage of Bland's traffic stop released from the Texas Dept. of Public Safety. I have no plans to watch - although thankfully nothing violent happened even if there was some physicality - perhaps it might show something as well. If I did watch I wouldn't be sure what to look for.
I've also just learned that her death is being investigated as a murder so hopefully we can piece together what happened to her.
