Officer Describes Cover-Up In Sandra Bland’s Case

A Texas cop reveals the facts missing from the police report.

Sandra Bland is a 28-year old black woman, who was found hanged in Waller County Jail on July 13, 2015. She was pulled over for a minor traffic violation on July 10 by Officer Brian Encinia, who later arrested her for allegedly assaulting him. After reviewing the dash cam footage of the arrest Officer Encinia was placed on administrative leave for failing to follow proper traffic stop procedures.

Prairie View police Officer Michael Kelley told The Huffington Post that his original report of Bland’s arrest that was submitted into evidence was missing some key facts. He disclosed that at the time of his arrival to the scene Bland, who was in handcuffs, had already been put in the squad car. Kelly further narrated that Encinia, who at that time had his body camera turned off, admitted arresting Sandra without any offense and said that he would make up a charge against Sandra.

“My opinion is that he messed up, he did not have probable cause to detain her after he pulled her out of the car,” Kelley told. He also claimed he had been threatened by Assistant District Attorney Warren Diepraam when he volunteered to testify against Officer Encinia in court.

Alexandria Pyle, an inmate of the cell, adjacent to the one, in which Bland was held, told the media that she seemed distressed. She averred Bland was very emotional and cried a lot.

More and more loopholes tend to be appearing in the story the authorities want us to believe. From the very instant when Sandra Bland was arrested and till she died in jail she obviously endured all kinds of abuse both physical and emotional. Maybe this torture led her to the suicide.

There have been a lot of falsifications in this case. From false statements given by Brian Encinia to falsified jail log data, so the cover-up raises no doubts. Sandra should have never been taken to prison, as her relatives claim.

The body camera worn by Officer Brian at the time proves useless in this case, as it was turned off.

Body-cameras alone will not help to absolve or indict anyone until there are clear and strict rules of wearing them and some serious responsibility for having them off during any incident.
