In police brutality news today, new police footage of Sandra Bland is calling into question the events that led to the Sandra Bland death in a Waller County jail. This new Sandra Bland footage comes from Sandra Bland's cell phone that recorded part of the Sandra Bland arrest at a routine traffic stop. Traffic violations sometimes lead to violent confrontations with law enforcement. Sandra Bland's death was a flashpoint for Black Lives Matter activists 4 years ago
Sandra Bland recorded her arrest on her cell phone, revealing footage that refutes what police say happened. Sandra Bland was 28 years old when she was arrested at a traffic stop for allegedly becoming ‘combative and uncooperative’ after failing to signal a lane change. The officer at the scene, Brian Encinia, claimed his ‘safety was in jeopardy.’ Bland was found hanging in her jail cell days later. Her death was ruled a suicide.
Although Encinia’s dashcam footage was released days after her death, but the existence of Bland’s phone footage wasn't publicly known until now. Sandra Bland’s family is now asking to reopen the investigation into her arrest & subsequent death in 2015.
Encinia was indicted in 2016 for falsely claiming he sought safety when removing Bland from her car, but the charge was dismissed in 2017 in exchange for Encinia agreeing to never work in law enforcement again.
