It feels like just yesterday that Sandra Bland’s mysterious death was the number one news story all over the world. On July 13, 2015, the then 28-year old was found hanged in a jail cell in Waller County, Texas three days after being arrested during a traffic stop. Her death was ruled a suicide, but some things didn’t add up.
According to reports, “Texas authorities and the FBI conducted an investigation into Bland’s death and determined the Waller County jail did not follow required policies, including time checks on inmates and ensuring that employees had completed required mental health training.” State Trooper Brian Encinia who pulled Bland over and was seen on the dashcam footage being aggressive her was placed on administrative leave for failing to follow proper traffic stop procedures.
