What happen to Sandy Bland?

What really happen to Sandy Bland? Sandy was a 28 year-old woman who had her whole life ahead of her. She was pulled over by a State Trooper on Friday, July 10th,2015 for improper signaling of a lane change. During the stop, she allegedly assaulted a police officer. A bystander’s video of the arrest was posted onto YouTube. It shows several police officers standing over Bland while she is on the ground, arguing with them about why they’re being so rough. At one point, she can be heard saying, “You just slammed my head into the ground. Do you not even care about that?” She also thanks the man recording the incident for filming as she is led to a police cruiser.The Waller County Sheriff’s Office says that Bland was found in her cell Monday morning, three days after her arrest. She was “not breathing from what appears to be self-inflicted asphyxiation,” the sheriff’s office said in a press release.

Again, we are to believe that this woman who had a promising future and who showed no serious depression warnings to family and friends just decided to take her life? This whole situation looks very suspicious to me. Was she in the jail cell alone? You mean to tell me that she showed no signs of serious depression especially being locked up? I think there is more to this case! Where are all the black civil rights leaders, community activists, and black media? Why are people sitting on this? The only concerned people have been Sandy’s family, friends, and her sorority which is Sigma Gamma Rho. We need to start holding law enforcement and these so-called civil rights leaders accountable! Tell me your thoughts on this situation.
