Who Killed Sandra Bland?

 Sandra-Bland-CNN-jpg

On July 13, 2015, my day started out routinely as it always does.  Later in the day, I, like many of you, learned of the story of Sandra Bland.  Apparently, she was found hanged in her cell, 3 days after being arrested for a routine traffic stop.

Sandra lived in Chicago with her family, and she traveled to Waller, Texas to get a job at her Alma mater, Prairie View.  Where she graduated in May of 2009.  She was hired to work at the school’s agricultural department and was elated, according to her sister.

Months earlier, she posted on Facebook that she suffered from depression and post traumatic stress disorder.  Her family said that they didn’t notice any despair in her demeanor of late at the time of this incident.

“At about 4:30 p.m. on July 10, Bland was driving a silver Hyundai Azera south through Waller County on FM 1098, near Prairie View A&M, when a state trooper, Brian Encinia, pulled her over for said was for failing to signal a lane change.”

And that’s where this story hangs.

From the start, I was suspicious.

The video that has been released of the arrest, Bland’s voice can be heard very clearly.  She protests how she was treated and tells the officer arresting her that she can’t wait until this goes to court.

Over the next couple of days, Bland called her family, asking for help to raise money for the $5,000 bail.  She told them that she thought her shoulder and arm may be broken.  The last time she was seen alive, was around 7:00 a.m. on July 13, 2015.

Waller County authorities have asked for the Texas Rangers and FBI to help investigate what happened.  Bland’s family has asked for an independent autopsy.

Here is yet another case involving the death of an African American–now a woman, who has ended up dead, for a simple traffic incident.  She joins, Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, and so many more, who ended up tragedies for mundane reasons.

There’s no excuse for it.

As an African American woman, I’m not going to tolerate Black women being violated and murdered by white males.  Even the hint of that makes me want to hunt down some M’fuckas to kill them swiftly.

We are not animals!

I don’t know what happened to Sandra Bland.  But I’m using my blog to spread her story–as well, as to DEMAND JUSTICE for her life.

She could have been somebody, but now, we’ll never know.

      Ok, I misunderstood your second reply. I was a little too sharp in the first two paragraphs of my second post here and I take those back as directed towards you, though I stand by the rest(minus any thing towards you) for any who may be reading.

      I agree, we don’t need to see those people like you are talking about on TV. But a lot of them are just playing their role in misleading blacks or are really lost. However, blacks will more and more stop listening to them, though unfortunately many or most of us will still think that is the way to go.

    I am so upset about this Sandra Bland case @TruthAngel that I’m BLIND with RAGE! I’m so serious. For some reason this case has disturbed me to my core. It’s almost at the point that I can’t even talk about it with most black people because they almost always incite me to anger.

    What I find most distressing about speaking on this topic with my people is their knee-jerk reaction to jump to defend the system of white supremacy and it’s “henchmen” (aka law enforcement). How many blacks have you discussed this very troubling case with only to have them run down a laundry list of things that Ms. Bland did wrong- and barely mention the misdeeds of the f*cking blue pig?! They almost NEVER focus on the many things that the police officer did to ESCALATE this simple traffic stop to an incident of brutality. It pisses me off to no end!

    I allowed an attorney friend of mine bait me into this conversation about this case and she shocked the hell out of me. She was directly accusing Bland of her own demise while tactfully exonerating the cop. Where does it end? I’m sick of these “go along to get along” negroes I don’t know what to do. They haven’t realized that this approach has not, does not and WILL NOT improve our lives in any way! Our enemies will see sure to it.

    My thing is: black people have two choices now that it’s clear that our enemies have every intention on continuing this war on us:

    1. We can continue to live our lives on our knees (going along to get along); or
    2. We can stand up and FIGHT!

    Blacks have to get to the point where it’s ‘all or nothing.’ Like in a game of poker, we have to be “all in.”

    I’d personally rather see the black race annihilated with us standing and fighting than to see us continue to exist living on our knees.

    Whatever you all think, whatever missteps you think she made, whatever you think she should have done, Sandra Bland was brave.

      Reality, I too was angered when this story broke. One of my nieces is just 2 years younger than Sandra–it struck a serious cord. Something fishy is going on about this case. I have no doubt about that. Most of the Black people I know have the same suspicions.

      All over social media, the talk is that when you look at Sandra’s mugshot, she’s already dead. Just study it. Why would she be taking a mugshot with her orange jail suit already on? The mugshot typically is taken at the beginning of processing when people are arrested. It’s sick to think about it, but I feel the whole thing could be staged. I.E. The garbage bag she supposedly hung herself with: why was a trash bag in her cell in the first place?

      No matter what is said, this case must be investigated.

      This just should never have happened at all.

      • reality_check says:

        I also believe the mugshot was taken post-mortem. That in itself is some diabolical sh*t. You can see in her eyes that she is not there- which is haunting.

        Another thing: someone released pictures of the Waller County jail and it is clearly noted that the walls of the facility are a tan color while the floors are GRAY. Wasn’t there a gray back drop in Bland’s booking photo?

        The photo was definitely taken with her lying down. The eyes do not lie. Again, you can see in her gaze that she is not present.

      What’s Good Sis? Allow me to elaborate on my original comments. The ugly truth of the matter, is that, the safety and lives of blackwomen is not sacred to those that claim to speak for us. In these United States, blackwomen are beaten, raped, killed, arrested on bulls@#t charges, shafted by racist prosecutors and judges and so forth. Not a peep from the usual suspects. Other men notice this hypocrisy among us as blackmen. We’re so occupied with the goings on in pop culture, that we’ve become numb to the harsh realities of what our women deal with day to day. The mere fact that this punk ass cop caught a temper tantrum because a blackwoman refused to obey a lawful command is proof positive that manhood is dead in this cycle of the planet. He has the most blame in this. His lack of turning the other cheek and being the so-called bigger man has cost a woman her life…It’s Hella Sad! I’ve always been a law and order type of person from a young age, but, I don’t give a f@#* anymore. Whatever negative consequences come their way, that’s for them to worry about. I highly doubt Sandra Bland would have been arrested if she was Caucasian or viewed as honorary.

        While some of the last “conscious” people are waking up, we need to be real. Is this type of incident really new? NO!

        This is a tricky matter for us in this area. Someone is trying to goad us into starting a MASS ATTACK so they can declare martial law. That is why we keep seeing these pictures of injured and dead blacks so often now. There also just happens to be a certain drill going on in this state as well as others.

        I am not a native here but am now a resident as well as being probably one of the few people here that are in any of the states that are in that drill. I believe we will handle it as well as can be done under the circumstances.

        You did not even read a thing I wrote. I definitely said nothing about praying for the officers.

        You probably don’t even know what drill-Jade Helm- I am talking about. You, unlike me, also definitely do not live in one of these states.

        This is a …very interesting time for way too many reasons to even begin to list here. I suspect that, among other things, we are being used as a distraction. There is also something VERY BAD planned for us, but you haven’t even begun to realize how it is playing out. You think you know, but you don’t know even the half of it. All I am going to say is you need to stop trusting these leaders on TV. The only thing they have had said in all this time was taking down the Stars and Bars. After all that went on, that was the only thing they had for us? Really, what did that do?! They are going to continue to mislead us while doing trivial stuff like that. None of them, especially a certain man who some of you still think is just scared, cares anything for you or will lift a finger to stop what is planned.

        You are not seeing all these cases, which are nothing new except Charleston, because they care about us or want to make things better. No, they just are trying to trick us into a MASS ATTACK. They will use that to put in martial law, and whatever happens afterward it will not be any improvement for blacks, instead the opposite. For some reason, they are focused on this region.

        Every minor traffic stop is about discretion. Sandra Bland was not a fleeing suspect, killer, rapist, terrorist and so forth. 3 days later she’s found dead in her jail cell allegedly by her own hands. Being locked in a cage when you’ve been free all your life is a traumatic event. This sista is dead today because of some cop with a Napoleon Complex got offended by a cigarette. Citizens can talk s@#t to a cop as long as no physical contact is made. He has the gun and badge, it’s up to him to de-escalate the volatility. A blackwoman scared him that much? This jackass is gonna get more officers killed as a result of his actions…Bank on It! Sistas are victims of police brutality and racism as well, but so-called leadership is sexist. Only black male lives matter to them. Don’t expect to see them out front on this tragedy. Whether she had bouts of depression is irrelevant. She should have never been in handcuffs period.

    • The system of ”white supremacy” is a passive notion we all participate in under the pretense that it has no immediate are real tangible effect until we see injustice takes place thus prompting knee jerk reactions with no real substance and meaning behind the protest that takes place other just emotional outburst aimed at no real target other then the umbrella that encompasses all the things that affect us economically, judicially, educationally, and socially. You can’t organize against something we were all born into and it is already set up 100’s of years ago. Yes’ we can unite have town hall meetings and after school special with church pitching where it can when it never does of course.
      The white race knows they are in their last days as a race on this planet. Everyday they wake up things are getting blacker and blacker.

      The know the great white genocide is on their doorstep. This is why they are killing us in high volumes because they want us to care that they are angry and afraid of this slow and gradual vanishing act of them as a race and that black people at the end of the day will get the last laugh. And I am not saying this to antagonize the white race as a whole because they have been lied to by their own people to believe that if it’s not white, it’s not right.

      Yes we have our sell outs but they have been brainwashed since birth to admire white people though these shows aimed at the white audience with your one negro minimal here and there as a token. They can kill how many black as they can, it will not change the fact that their race has been selected for extinction. We should all know that by taking down the confederate flag that some racist were going to target what also symbolized black voices that recognize the injustices taking place. The world they once knew is slowing receding into their rear view and are driving towards a head on collision with karma. I don’t know if you guys caught this but let me further demonstrate the theme in what I am talking about. This is 3 reports from different outlets talking about the same thing. White Right Wing Terrorist!

      Right-wing terrorists twice as likely to kill Americans than Muslim jihadists are ‒ Report

      ”Nearly twice as many Americans have been killed by right-wing extremists since 9/11 as have died at the hands of radical Muslims on US soil, a new report found. There have also been nearly three times as many deadly right-wing attacks as jihadist ones.

      Angry White Male Terror in US More Deadly Than Jihad Since 9/11
      Published June 24, 2015 | By Jim White

      Remember back in 2009 when the Department of Homeland Security warned (pdf) against the growth of homegrown terror arising from right-wing extremism? Remember how the howls of protest from the same right-wing politicians who dog-whistle the right-wing extremists into action were so loud that DHS took the report off its website and even disbanded the research unit that produced the report? Here’s Daryl Johnson, who headed the group at DHS that produced the report, talking in 2011: https://www.emptywheel.net/2015/06/24/angry-white-male-terror-in-us-more-deadly-than-jihad-since-911/

      Turns out people get angry when you say white Americans are terrorists, too.

      Let us run a headline by you.

      “White Americans are the biggest terror threat in the United States.”

      That was the headline of an article we published in late June about a new study that found non-Muslim extremists in the United States had killed nearly twice as many Americans since 9/11 as Muslim “jihadists.” Many of the non-Muslim extremists — whom we’ll just call terrorists from now on — were motivated by right-wing anti-government beliefs or white supremacist ideologies. Nearly all of them were white US citizens. http://www.dailynews.com/general-news/20150709/turns-out-people-get-angry-when-you-say-white-americans-are-terrorists-too

      Ariel: People, you want to know why the Charleston shooter is being charged as a hate crime? Because there are no laws the that are against domestic terrorism! He is already getting away with that in a sense. Because the laws are changing to where all white males will be charged including cops with domestic terrorism which is why they are trying to kill as many of us as they can while they could and not be charged as a terrorist.
