The Mysterious Death of African American Woman Sandra Bland Who Died in Police Custody: Was it Really Suicide?



Sandra Bland

The mysterious death of Sandra Bland, a 28-year-old African-American woman who died in police custody three days after she was arrested, is currently a hot topic.

Her death has been ruled a suicide but many are asking, did she really kill herself or did the police have a hand in killing her and then orchestrating an elaborate cover up? This is the question America and the world are demanding answers to.

Here is the background of the story:

Sandra, who is from Chicago and had gone to Texas to start a new job at her alma mater, Prairie View A&M University, was arrested after she was stopped on July 10 for “failure to signal a lane change,” New York Times reports.

A video made public revealed that there was a shouting match and struggle between the officer and Sandra.

The Arrest

The video shows the officer ordering Sandra out of the car and threatening her with a stun gun. “I will light you up,” the officer says.

Before Sandra got out of the car, the confrontation had gotten heated, as Sandra refused to obey the officer’s directive, asking her  to put out a cigarette.

The video shows the officer standing outside the driver’s door and explaining to Sandra that she was being written up for failing to signal a lane change.

“You seem very irritated,” he said.

“I am, I really am,” she said. She said she had pulled over to get out of his way and was now getting stopped and written up because of it.

“You mind putting out your cigarette?” he asked.

“I’m in my own car. I don’t have to put out my cigarette,” she said.

When he ordered her out of the car, she refused.

“I’m going to yank you out,” he shouted.

Shortly after, Sandra was outside the car shouting insults and obscenities, and the trooper had her in handcuffs.

In part of the encounter that occurred out of the camera’s view, a scuffle can be heard, and Sandra said she was on the ground. “You just slammed me, knocked my head into the ground,” she said.

She the says “I got epilepsy,” and the officer says, “good.”

The Affidavit

The officer described Sandra as “combative and uncooperative…Bland began swinging her elbows at me and then kicked my right leg in the shin. I had a pain in my right leg and suffered small cuts on my right hand…”

Sandra’s Death

The Waller County sheriff’s office affirmed that “Bland appeared in good health when she was booked and placed in Cell 95 in a housing area for women in the one-story jail. “

However, the authorities further stated:

“A jailer making rounds found her hanging in her 15-by-20-foot cell shortly after 9 a.m. on July 13. Waller County officials said Ms. Bland had been found in a “semi-standing position,” hanged with a plastic trash-can liner affixed to a U-shaped metal hook. Jail officials and emergency medical personnel placed her on the floor and unsuccessfully administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation before she was pronounced dead at 9:16 a.m. The liner had been taken from the trash container in her cell.”

Unanswered Questions

And so the question still remains, how did Sandra die? The circumstanced under which she died are extremely suspicious.

Sandra was said to have been dealing with depression at some point in her life. According to reports, she posted a video  on her Facebook page in March saying she was experiencing “a little bit of depression as well as PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).” However, family members say they had no reason to believe she was seriously troubled.

      What just happened was stereotype!

      Police/White officers suspects blacks, in turn black are defensive! You will not blame them for its psychological.

      It is/was a pity the young lady didn’t apply wisdom. The place was lonely and may not have been this bad if it was in a busy place.
      Good word soothes the heart.
      Police was hot tempered, hand cuff happy, but the lady’s curse words where too much and not proper in a lonely place as this
      Sad none deserve to die but wisdom is very profitable-

      It really a heart break but the 10million Nigerians in America can change the impression of blacks and we can change the world,

      America is fast loosing it with this incessant harassment from the officers against blacks. If Sandra was white,she would have been treated otherwise.
      I just encourage our people here to be civil even when unduly harassed as you need your life than the law- Perhaps if she was alive she may have won the case. Each time i see these police i try to give an impression that blacks are honest,respectful,civilized,speak English devoid of curse words,and that black is legitimate.

      God help the world!!!!

    Jesus of Nazareth! From what I can see,the police officer is hot tempered and for Christ sake,why will he do that to an unarmed woman.They should also release surveillance of her cell,she must have said something that made the police officer say’ I will hang you’ and then the yeye police officer did it.God have mercy and protect our people in the USA from these demons walking in police uniform.

      And this is why I get mad and aggravated over the sensationalization of that RACHEL DOLEZAL, who suddenly got the epiphany that she is a black woman, even after suing Howard University (a Historically Black College and University, established for the benefits in the days of segregation when blacks and whites could not go to the same school). She sued as a white white girl, saying Howard University racially discriminated her when evaluating her graduate assistantship application (tuition discount). Plus she also plagiarized the paintings of black urban painters and tried to pass it off as her own. After all her atrocities, girl finally realized she is black.
      The plight of a black person in America is unconscionable. The atrocities committed against black incomprehensible. That is why I get so aggravated on issues like cultural appropriation. Dont try to embrace black values only to just dump it the minute you get bored, because race is not an a la carte system. If you cant fully experience the burden of being black in America, you best stay away from black culture. The average black American is continually sidelined professionally, deemed an angry black person for venting justified frustrations, labeled a thug, and victims of constant police brutality and violence. Even after centuries of slave trade, the burden of this skin color seems only steeper.
      Then you turn around and see people who not even the faintest idea of blackness say, oh by the way, I’m BLACK. Like really, will you ever have to give your teenage the “police talk?” Will you ever have to tell your daughter the media will forever “objectify” your features; but so long as they are on you, these said features will never be classy. Like you will forever have to hold your tongue and be grateful, because an signs of ingratitude to the white patriarch permitting you to exist in his world will be deemed an act of defiance, punishable by death. That the odds of you being shut by police or community watch in your own neighborhood is astronomical. That you don’t have the luxury of wearing sweatpants in public, or a hoodie in winter, else you stand the risk of being arrested as a crime suspect and gang banger.
      Or that even when you do get arrested for a crime you did not commit, you stand chances of getting the highest possible sentences and dont have access to competent legal representation; while your white counterpart can get off on a mental defense, a technicality, and affluenza (the entitlement of growing up rich that makes a white kid not fully appreciate the consequences of an action).
      Or that even after you beat these odds, and scale through all the obstacles, you make a name for yourself, you get told that you got to where you are today as the DIVERSITY hire, not because you were qualified for the position. And you have to work twice as hard to get half the same recognition of the white counterpart. And unlike your white counterpart, you have the huge burden of being an ambassador for your race and cannot mess up. If you do mess up, and make the mistake of failing, you jeopardize the chances of another person of your color even getting that same opportunity.
      Now that is what life is living as a person of color in the bigoted country. But dont worry these atrocities do not amount to human rights violations (yeah right). Let us continue trotting all around the globe putting our noses where the sun dont shine and acting as WORLD POLICE.

    • Naijamerican

      July 24, 2015 at 12:43 pm

      There is racism in Europe. They are just more diplomatic with the way they handle it. However America is the only foreign country in the world where there is no ceiling to opportunity and progress. You can rise to the highest level no matter where you’re from. In Europe there is a limit to your progress. That’s a fact to which even I am living evidence.

      The policing in America can easily be stated as the worst in the world. Someone needs to train the cops in the States to be less aggressive and violent. Many of them are like scary monsters. What a very sad story. She didn’t deserve this but the lesson is to apply wisdom and just humor a crazy person. Never aggravate a cop that already has egotistical issues. It’s not worth it.
      Hopefully someday soon just like many struggles overcome, this would be in the past. God bless America.

    @nene which part of Europe do you live and you are not experiencing racism? The Europeans are the least tolerant to other races in the world. America as it is, is far more tolerant. The truth of the matter is this: Nigeria is still our best option. As soon as my kids get out of high school, I am out of here.

    • Ms Geeky 30

      July 24, 2015 at 11:16 am

      Europeans are racist without a doubt but the racism you experience is very different. I have lived on both continents so I am speaking from experience. You are for example, unlikely to get shot by an officer who is meant to uphold the law.
      Racism is more overt in America! People do not shy away from saying offensive uncouth things in public. In the UK on the other hand, the racist might think it but is unlikely to say it out loud to your face. I think these differences come down to cultural differences. The average well brought up western european (especially in the UK) finds it uncouth to publicly trade insults and have public shouting matches while americans are relatively more outspoken and loud. As such, europeans racists will subvert behind the scenes rather than confront eg hold off promoting you at work, choosing not to rent a flat/ apartment to you, strictly enforcing rules for you while being more relaxed with caucasians, etc. but at least you stay alive and if you obey the laws, you will definitely not end up in jail for no reason at all.

      I totally agree with you @Ms Geeky 3o, Racism in the UK is a lot more coded than it is in the states. Like you said,

      “at least you stay alive and if you obey the laws, you will definitely not end up in jail for no reason at all.”

      That for me is the reason the UK is better than America. I’d be very afraid if I lived in the states right now.

      July 24, 2015 at 6:06 pm

      @Ms geeky well said! The difference between racism in Europe and America is that in Europe being law abiding irrespective of your skin color means ur safe, whilst in America, law abiding or not you are already profiled by your skin color

      You can rise to any height in the UK at least. Never been discriminated against. There’s hardly racial tension. Many times, white people in the UK are afraid to make comments with racial undertone. Many employers prefer Africans because they Work hard.
      As per secret racist comments- are we Africans not also guilty?

    Truth is this whole race cycle is so vicious. It exists and for people who have to deal with it on daily basis, you can’t help but be angry at a point. we are shamed into not truly talking about it! Some people feel if you are not white , you are not worthy to be treated with respect. We see it in restaurant services, when shopping, applying for jobs, dealing with law enforcement , I could go on and on. At the end of the day, from observation , I’m starting to see where it started from and why it still persists till today. Stay tuned for that article on my analysis on the “race situation”. The work day has started.

      Nigerian tribalism is far worse and hurts more than American racism.
      A situation where you are denied a job you are truly qualified for , simply because of your state of origin. Or you work under someone less qualified than you, in your own country and the resources are from your part of the country.
      Your folks are slaughtered, because they ought not live out if their state of origin. Even when they are not even asking for jobs but running their own businesses. How many mass killings took place in Northern Nigeria before BH?
      Even in SE, rubbers and kidnappers run wild.

      @ Beeeee and nnenne. You want to know the difference? Rule of Law. In the developed world, there is recourse when your right is breached. Human rights will be abused anywhere, to different degrees. Less apparent in naija because we have no clue what it means to have human rights. Worse because for those that are aware of human rights, there is no real recourse.

    July 24, 2015 at 10:02 am

    In the entire transcript I read, nowhere does he read her Miranda rights since he was arresting her? why is that? so before someone yanks me out of my car in THAT tone, which he never would have used on a person of his race, why not read her her rights and then tell her why she is being arrested. Ontop of this is it a crime now to smoke in your car? WOW!! All this to me is police brutality. I also get the sense that since she was an outspoken advocate for #blacklivesmatter and continually posted videos of her feeling on-line, I feel that this woman was being followed and they (the force) labelled her a trouble-maker, because why was he behind her for no apparent reason? So she then moved/switched lanes without indicating, does that warrant this type of an arrest? Would he have handed down the same treatment to a white female? I believe not. This was a pure case of her being stalked for her voicing opinions, and they followed her with the intention of intimidation and then when she slipped up with that switching of lanes, then he got her? she had no weapon, so why would she be treated like a criminal for switching lanes without indicating. We shall never know the REAL truth about her death but this I know, he had no right to talk to her in that manner and tone, arrest her in that manner and tone. he just laid on the charges for his own dirty work. America, the land of fair. God allow me stay in my country o!

    The frequency with which racial deaths are occurring in the US is worrisome.

    @Hadii – there is racism in the UK, the only difference is it is understated (as a result of the british culture); it is certainly not as blatant as this crap happening in the states but surely and certainly it is there. Same with other countries in Europe – Spain, Italy, Netherlands.

    I’m just super tired with this unending feud between blacks and white American cops. The average black person knows how the society is towards them, you are already at a disadvantage when you are stopped. What I don’t understand is how these people think they can get anything good out of arguing with authority. I mean how do you argue with someone that has a gun, police or not? Things can go from 0 to 100. Step out of the car, why is that too much to do whether it was said nicely or not? Was that the time and place to argue your rights? When you know the police officer is already biased? You can only argue in court if you are alive, dead people don’t tell tales. In our everyday lives , we are sometimes stripped of our rights, sometimes you just have to let it go. There was so much opportunity for this to have been dis-escalated. The moment she was stopped, she should just have put out her cigarette, stay calm (she was at the beginning) and stop talking. Gosh just keep your mouth shut. You will have the chance to blab in court. MLK didn’t fight for our rights by engaging in a shouting match with police officer that can easily shoot you and claim accidental discharge, and life will move on and you will be forgotten. Step out of the car, put out your cigarette , not saying the police officer was right in what he did, but she would have been alive today to make her case in court,now she’s gone, what a senseless way to go….may she rest and find the peace she was unable to find here on earth. ….and may that officer get what is coming to him, he had too much ego and could not take someone disobeying him because he felt he had the power. When you are trusted with power, you should be more careful and responsible with it, it’s not every time you flex muscle….as spider-man would say it, with more power comes responsibility. He could have written the ticket without insisting she gets out of the car and go on about his way A display of unnecessary ego on both parts, too many opportunities on both parts for it to have ended nicely…….I’m always angry but I’m extra angry this morning……Let me go an roll some weed….mtcheww

      July 24, 2015 at 2:25 pm

      MLK did all of this and he was still killed. All Emmett Till did was be friendly to a white woman and he was still killed. She changed lanes for the police officer and she was still killed. So no, respectability politics do not get you anywhere. The folks in church had prayed with their killer before he killed them. So it does not matter what you do or how you do it, you can be as subservient or obedient or “yes massa” all day long, if they are hell bent on getting you they will. Even President Obama has spoken on such an experience. Remember the swimming pool accident in Texas, those boys were polite as fuck and they still got cuffed. If someone wasn’t filming, they may have been dead. Remember the guy running away and the police officer who shot him 6 times in the back? There was the UVA student who was assaulted despite his politeness. Do you even know the PTSD that comes from such an interaction? Or the children killed for a toy gun or raiding the wrong house?

      And at some point, people can only do so much. I know we as Nigerians are used to kowtowing so much and suffering and smiling. They have been suffering and smiling since they were brought to the US, over 200 years ago. They have been able to thrive and live and survive, but at some point it gets too much.

    • VeryAngryNigerian

      July 24, 2015 at 2:56 pm

      MLK was assassinated and Emmett Till was murdered, we are talking about police brutality/racism here, and the role we all have to play when it comes to dealing with a person of authority. Yes anyone can get anyone if they decide to, race or not. I can go abduct that guy that pissed me off in the .am at night and empty some caps on him…yeah anyone can do anything. Those boys in McKinney got cuffed and are still alive today, should they have started shouting down the cops, I bet the story will be different. They can go ahead and file a civil law suit and follow it up and oh guess what, they can make sure they go to college become a lawyer and go after bad cops. Point being, THEY ARE ALIVE. So yeah black people should keep shouting down cops anytime there’s an altercation because “from history it has always ended well”…smh…yeah they have been supressed for 200yrs , yet they have access to electricity , good schools, while some Nigerians can barely eat and are being blown up for no reason by boko haram, yeah it must be tough ……yeah it gets too much…..on another note my weed has refused to light up….I’ll make do with coffee….

      Thanks for this rather insightful comment. Some Nigerians are really unfamiliar with the long history of racism and the deleterious effects on black citizens. Some Nigerians think playing respectability politics will save you it won’t.

    These cops are in secret meetings in all states and have a quota to kill a number of niggers per month across all 50 states. You kill a nigger you get a pay raise.

    There’s only so much Obama can do, there is a rule of law following all these processes or do you think Obama is the only sovereign power in the United States?? white racists in the senate that feel like the police is doing a good job protecting their kids against these black “thugs” will clearly delay any ruling that will put blacks at an advantage over the police that they so celebrate. (P.s gay rights has this much support because it largely affects the white populace ( their sons and daughters, their fathers and their uncles…after all there are gay racists, so any form of comparison is just misplaced )

    Well lets look at this, not saying anything to the opposite, but, what if, she was white, young and pretty. Would he have been more creative in his approach to THE SITUATION, not the person, but the situation. I think so, in my opinion. Besides if he was worried about the smoke from a cigarette, self preservation would have compelled him to stand back. Here is a clear cut and decisive inhibition that this officer clearly wanted to harass this young woman. Now the most obvious,,if it was just a warning how did he, have time to write the ticket as he was pulling her over. He shows in the video the ticket was JUST a warning. I don’t know @ anyone else who has been pulled over by police, but the ticket was always written after he had my license and registration, and went back to his car. Now lets get back to WHY he pulled her over, she claims that he was traveling close behind so she changed lanes to allow him to proceed. That tells me she was in the left lane. And also so was he. I don’t know @ you but I have never been pulled over for clearing a way for an officer of the law. And I have never used a blinker in doing so. It’s just a natural reaction to move out of their way. Well enough trying to figure out the arrest.
    I would like to know how anyone can hang themselves with BIO DEGRADABLE trash can liners.
    No matter how much you twist them they will still always snap with anything over 60 lb pressure. Something is awrie. And it’s not this poor woman and her family.

    Also to add to my last post, the officer claims she was being arrested for resisting arrest. That tells me he , before removing her from the car was going to arrest her no matter what. You don’t arrest someone for a traffic violation or for being in a bad mood. The officer never informed her before trying to remove her from the car that she was being arrested for disobeying a lawful order. Not extinguishing her cigarette because he told her so..not because he asked her politely to . but because He TOLD her to. How lawful is that., If in fact she asked him to remove his hat in the presence of a lady would he have obliged to do so out of shivelry, nah I don’t buy this whole situation…….Too much bullshyte don’t add up. Noone bailed her out with in hours. Nooone spoke @ how depressed and distraught she was. I know from experience they do a phsych eval on every incoming inmate. So did this “obvious” suicide happen on a whin within only 72 hours.
    SHE WAS MURDERED. No ifs…….ands…….or butts @ it.
