A police officer stopped Sandra Bland vehicle for a failure to use her turn signal when switching lane traffic violation. A traffic violation which should have been a warning or a traffic ticket for a fine, turned into an what is deemed "driving while black" arrest.
A video dusplats an irritated Bland challenging being asked to put out her cigarette which drew disdain from a police officer. The officer began to engage Bland in unnecessary conversation for a routine traffic stop.
The more expressive Bland became in her remarks, the officer respond began to trigger in the conversation fior probable cause reason for Bland's arrest.
Bland was taken into custody. We know she was Haled off to jail. While in custody Bland died. Now we are left with questions, such as how did this happen?
#JusticeForSandy and #WhatHappenedToSandyBland.
The autopsy declares death by suicide. I questions are endless when wondering how this could happe, if Bland disclosed she had suicidal tendencies. Why was detain for three day? When was she scheduled to appear in court for her preliminary hearing?
Note: The Department of Public Safety trooper, who has been on the force for just over a year, has been placed on administrative leave for violating unspecified police procedures and the department's courtesy policy.
