Police Brutality Activist Mysteriously Dies In Jail After Being Pulled Over for Impro

This one is pretty sketchy

Quote:
However, Waller County Sheriff Glenn Smith said in a statement Bland “had been combative on the side of the road.” He did not say she physically attacked one of his boys, and video of any “assault” on a police officer does not yet exist. What does exist is cell phone footage taken from afar by a bystander showing several officers on top of Bland, one of whom slammed her head into the ground.

“You just slammed my head into the ground. Do you not even care about that? I can’t even hear,” Bland can be heard saying in the video. She repeats while being dragged into custody, “You slammed me into the ground and everything.”

Also audible in the footage is an officer telling the witness recording the assault to leave.


According to Smith’s statement, Bland was last seen by jail employees at 7 a.m. when she was given breakfast, and last heard at 8 a.m. over the intercom. One hour later she was found dead, supposedly by “self-inflicted asphyxiation,” according to deputies. Yes, that’s right – sheriff’s deputies. Not medical examiners or a coroner, but a couple cops decided they were qualified to report the findings of their “autopsy.”

Smith goes on to say “any loss of life is a tragic incident. While the investigation is being conducted by outside agencies, the Waller County Sheriff’s Office will continue to observe the daily operations of the jail to always look for improvements and/or preventions of these incidents.”

According to a press release, CPR was applied by authorities.

As is to be expected, Waller County DA Elton Mathis firmly defends the officers’ account, stating “I do not have any information that would make me think it was anything other than just a suicide.” Well, he wouldn’t actually admit there are surveillance cameras in the jail cell that would show what happened, because that could incriminate his clients, right?

why would a civil rights activist kill themselves over being jailed for improper lane change? Black females are the least likely group to commit suicide.

Doesn't sound kosher....hopefully an investigation will bring out all the facts and those responsible are brought to justice....having said that, #blacklivesmatter.

The Harris County medical examiner ruled 28-year-old Sandra Bland's hanging death was a suicide

"It appears she had used a trash bag to hang herself from a partition in the ceiling, which was used to give inmates privacy," said Elton Mathis, district attorney of Waller County.

Twist: "she" is actually a transsexual transracial born a white male.

My first lead on her depression was she killed herself.

If she had depression but the cops took away her pills that could have led to her committing suicide.

true but I haven't read anything indicating of the sort. She was due to start a new job at her alma mater, if anything she would have been happy.

Quote:
Bland previously discussed her struggle with depression in a video posted to Facebook in March.

"I want you guys to know it's a daily struggle. It's a daily test," she said. "Depression is nothing but the devil. It's a way of mind and it's a way of thinking."

I thought I read this is the 4th suicide in one of their cells in as many years. Seems odd.

"Bland’s demise is similar to the 2012 death of another Waller County Jail inmate named James Harper Howell IV. The Houston Chronicle reported at the time that Howell, like Bland, was arrested for assaulting a police officer.

“On the day he was found hanging,” the paper reported, “he had been sitting in the day room by himself watching television. Jailers had routinely checked on him. He spoke with jailers and gave no indication he would engage in suicidal behavior.” In Howell’s mugshot, he can be seen with what appear to be bruises to his face. That death, which was ruled a suicide, was also investigated by the Texas Rangers."
