Sandra Bland Texas Police brutality case thread

Dash cam footage of Sandra Bland’s arrest






HEMPSTEAD, Texas — A newly released dashcam video documents how a routine traffic stop escalated into a shouting confrontation between a Texas state trooper and Sandra Bland that led to the woman’s arrest.

The video posted online Tuesday by the Texas Department of Public Safety shows the trooper stopping Bland for failure to signal a lane change. After he hands her a ticket, the trooper remarks that Bland seemed irritated. Bland says she was irritated because she was ticketed after changing lanes to get out of the path of the trooper’s car.

Words are exchanged, including the trooper’s request that Bland put out a cigarette. Bland says she can smoke in her own car. The trooper then orders her to step out of her car.

Bland refuses, and the trooper tells her she is under arrest. Further refusals brought the trooper’s threat to “drag” her from the car. He then pulls what the Texas Department of Public Safety confirmed was a stun gun and says, “I will light you up.”

When she steps out, the trooper orders her to the side of the road. There, the confrontation continues off camera but is still audible.

The 28-year-old Bland was found hanging in her jail cell three days after the incident.

This was another escalation by the cop. He saw she had out of state plates (Illinois) and went for easy money.

Damn, let the cop live with that.
Ok with science that the big bang theory requires that fundamental scientific laws do not exist for the first few minutes, but not ok for the creator to defy these laws...  Rolleyes
