A released video yesterday says that the mother of Sandra Bland is seeking true justice for her daughter.
The mother of Sandra Bland, the 28-year-old black woman who was found dead in a Texas jail cell in July, said the perjury indictment against the state trooper who arrested her daughter is not enough.
“I want to see true justice happen here,” she said.
The grand jury found that the trooper’s account of how he confronted Bland to be false, special prosecutors said. This is why Bland’s mother is seeking for justice.
“It certainly shouldn’t have taken all of this time now to come up with a perjury charge, are you kidding me? “No, I’m not excited about it … That’s not justice for me.” These are words of a troubled mother.
On July 10, 2015, Encinia stopped Bland when she refused to use her turn signal when changing lane. Bland refused to get out of her car when Encinia ordered her to, when he forcibly arrested her.
Bland was found hanged in a Waller County jail cell three days after her arrest. On July 24, a medical examiner ruled Bland’s death a suicide.
