Texas Grand Jury Sides with Police – No Indictment in Sandra Bland’s Death

Twenty eight year old Sandra Bland was arrested and jailed for allegedly not using a turn signal in Texas on July 10th. She was found dead in her cell three days later.

Now, after spending 8 whole hours reviewing police account that Bland hung herself with a plastic bag, a Grand Jury in Texas agreed that the obviously very strong piece of plastic was all the 28 year old woman needed.

“After reviewing all the evidence in the death of Sandra Bland, a Waller grand jury did not return an indictment in the death of Bland, nor were any indictments returned against any employee of the Waller County Jail,” said Darrell Jordan, a special prosecutor handling the case.

The grand jury will reconvene in January to consider other indictments.

Bland, an African-American woman, was found dead in her cell three days after she was arrested for allegedly failing to use her turn signal on July 10. She was 28.

Officials in Waller County, Texas, have said she hanged herself with a plastic bag. Her family and others have questioned that account.

Those questions continued Monday night.

“We are not going to allow what they have done in a limited, secret capacity to prevent us from doing what we need to do to get answers for the family,” Bland family attorney Cannon Lambert told CNN affiliate KPRC.


I’m just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!
