Woman Found Hanging In Texas Jail Cell After Minor Traffic Stop

Friends are questioning the narrative related to the death of 28-year-old Sandra Bland, who Texas officials claim was found hanging in her jail cell Monday morning in an “apparent suicide.”

Bland had drove from Chicago last Thursday to interview for a new job at her alma mater, Prairie View A&M. On Friday, she was pulled over by a Texas state trooper outside the campus for allegedly “failing to signal while changing lanes.”

Police claim the woman became combative before being arrested for “assault on a public servant” and booked into the Waller County jail.

Sheriff R. Glenn Smith says Bland was last spoken to in her cell via intercom at 8 a.m. on Monday, before, at 9 a.m., she was found dead by a jailer.

“The preliminary investigation, the information I have received said this point, this was a suicide,” Waller County District Attorney Elton Mathis said.

An autopsy performed Tuesday by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences in Houston classified Bland’s death as a “suicide, [caused by] hanging.”

Friends who talked to Bland while she was at the jail however, are skeptical, and say the woman had arranged for them to pick her up Monday on a $5,000 bond.

“The plan was to attempt to bail her out on Monday,” Malcolm Jackson said. “But, before [that time] could come, of course tragedy struck and nothing was able to be done.”

Adding to suspicion, Bland was an outspoken critic of police brutality associated with the “Black Lives Matter” movement and on video footage recorded from the scene – which did not capture a visual of the arrest – the woman can be heard complaining that the officer slammed her head against the ground.

“You just slammed my heard into the ground, do you not even care about that?” Bland can be heard saying before she begins crying and thanks the bystander for recording. “I cant even hear.”

Watch the raw footage:

Another friend, LaVaughn Mosley, who had allowed Bland stay at his home while she went for the job interview, said Tuesday, “She went [and] did the interview, got the job, and was looking forward to start[ing] work on the 15th.”

Why would a woman who had traveled across the country for a job opportunity that was planning on being bailed out of jail only hours after her death, commit suicide?

“It’s sad, here’s a young lady trying to move on with her life and a simple traffic stop turned into such a travesty,” Mosley said. “The fact that they say she committed suicide in totally absurd.”

Friends have described Bland as “outgoing” and say the young woman was looking for a fresh start in Texas.

Bland’s family members have not offered any comment about the situation but a spontaneous online campaign is already underway on social media questioning the official narrative using hashtags like #JusticeForSandy and #WhatHappenedToSandyBland.

The Texas Rangers are now investigating the incident.

    I’m sure Common Sense will begin to taunt the victim once he comment’s here like the dumbass he is.

    It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

    Activist chick gets herself arrested for assaulting an officer….virtually destroying her own future….and kills herself.

    Suicide is a horrible thing. Why does anyone do it?

  • Lottidotti

    i wouldnt be surprised if she was hung…

  • WD!

    I think you should give it a try?, let us know how it goes ?

  • WD!

    You fucking armatures, everyone knows this is the work of the reptilians in cooperation with the surviving members of the Nazi party based in Antarctica. How can you be so naive?

    “……A black woman who authorities say hanged herself in a Texas jail had posted an online video earlier this year saying she was suffering from “a little bit of depression,” and “PTSD”

    “I want you guys to know it’s a daily struggle. It’s a daily test,” she said. “Depression is nothing but the devil. It’s a way of mind and it’s a way of thinking.” She recommended prayer to cut through the fog……………”

    “…..He also said that although jail video didn’t show what went on in Bland’s cell, it showed no one went in or out of it from the time she was placed there until a jailer found her unconscious….”
    Tragic, but free will. I’m sure there will be a lawsuit as someone, anyone, must be at fault, other than herself.

  • Common Sense

    What was the movie about Nazis on the moon? And then Hitler riding a T-Rex. Good stuff.

  • mobooz

    The cops left her in the cell with a plastic bag, those monsters. Off with their heads!

  • JC

    What was her mental health history? Has she tried killing her self in the past? Many families don’t realize their loved one is suicidal and will follow through. Her arrest could have sparked her to kill herself.

  • Hater

    Ding, ding, ding!! We have a winner!!

  • Hater

    What is it with black people? They become activists and seek out cops to have a beef with. They get arrested, as per the plan, then kill themselves in a long shot popo will get charged for it. I wish more black activists would follow this sheboon’s example.

    I guess they have special trash bags, ’cause mine can barely keep the trash in the bag ’til I get it to the dumpster! How many ridiculous “explanations” are we supposed to swallow? Or are we supposed to believe this is some grand black conspiracy? Who/what forced that 1 cop to shoot the guy in the back 8 times? How long has it been since the Rodney king police riot?

  • coblack

    I love you anyway but I don’t understand ; I guess its true people hate what they fear

  • Linda

    Minor traffic violation, ,so give the revenue collecting ticket and be gone. …no not the police-they have to show their power, act like parents scolding children, and then if a citizen flexes their rights, ,,look out for the raging police! !!!

  • Bob Blount

    Does anyone truly believe this young lady committed suicide over a traffic ticket given the circumstances of a new job and expecting to be bailed out suicide has no credibility murder at the hands of the police does though

  • Crazytrain

    Now that the video has been released, would anyone like some water to wash down that crow?

  • Raysist

    Iron sky.

  • # 1 stunner

    has anyone noticed the jail officer putting something in the trash at video beginning…emc officers putting a body on a gurney then taking it back off …several personnell rushing into cell just after that… looks like “no, no, no…she is supposed to be hanging from ceiling, put her back in and hang her up”…come on texas rangers, you’re better than that….and what was officer throwing out in trash ….

  • john mcginnis

    Why not suicide? The intake form the woman filled out indicated that she had. There were marks on her arms as such. She also verbally told the officers at the jail she had attempt so.

    If you want heads to roll it should not be for murder. What it should be for is negligence. Any person having recorded/verbalized prior attempts would be placed in a cell where there is constant supervision of the individual and no instruments for committing the act.
