    TX - Sandra Bland, 28, found dead in jail cell, Waller County, 13 July 2015 #1

    'I will light you up': Confronting arrest video emerges after woman mysteriously found dead in her Texas jail cell

    Disturbing dashcam video of the arrest of a black woman later found dead in her cell has been released, as US authorities try to piece together the final moments of the civil rights activist’s life.
    Sandra Bland, 28, was arrested on July 10 after she changed lanes without indicating in front of an officer in Waller County, Texas.
    Three days after she was detained, Ms Bland was found dead in her cell from an apparent suicide – a cause of death her family has vehemently disputed.
    The investigation is ongoing and murder has not yet been ruled out as a cause of death, Waller County District Attorney Elton Mathis told reporters yesterday.

    July 22, 2015: Newly released footage, shot from a police Dashcam, shows the confrontational and heated arrest of a Texan woman who would later die in police custody.

    Wow. Whatever caused her death, I don't think that the review of the arrest will turn out well for the cop. He used physical force before declaring her under arrest, and pulled his gun and threatened to 'light her up' when there appeared to be no threat against him. Bad piece of work.

    That messed up editing just screams desperation to me. Whoever it was did a terrible job. Like we wouldn't notice disappearing cars?!

    And with the jail cell video: http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-...ry.html#page=1

    This does not show her last entering her cell and with who or who last was in the cell with her. So shady.

    Sandra says a few times, "I can't wait till we go to court." She never made it..... I can't believe it was suicide. JMO

    Full traffic stop video. It appears at the 1:15 mark that Sandra Bland ran a stop sign and thats why the officer turned around, you see the stop sign as he turns around.. the wishy washy on the video is after SB has been finally detained into another police car.

    Oddly, he never mentioned a stop sign when he pulled her over -- he said that she was pulled over because she failed to signal when she made a lane change.

    Bland was not bonded out on Saturday, possible that had something to do with her committing suicide? She posted a video herself stating she was depressed. I will try to find.

    Snips>>>>
    “A friend said she called him from jail Friday night and told him her version of what happened.

    “She was smoking when he pulled her over. Told her to put her cigarette out, she had an exchange of words and it just went downhill. She said he snatched her out of the window and slammed her on her face,” LaVaughn Mosely said.”

    “Family and friends say this doesn’t add up and they don’t believe she would hurt herself.

    I talked to her Friday and she was in good spirits,” said Mosely. “Although she was incarcerated she was in good spirits. She was looking forward to posting bond Saturday and getting out. So you don’t go from that to hanging yourself.” http://www.khou.com/story/news/local...eath/30300813/

    Yes, but not from when she was last alive.

    LE should be required to release video from when she entered the cell alive on her own volition until they found her.

    I don't think a day or two delay in bond would make her kill herself, make her furious, yes, but not at herself for failure to signal a lane change. JMO

    I agree. Looks like he was just giving a warning not using her signal light. But she clearly ran the stop sign and that's what caught his attention and he sped up.

    She tells him that she just arrived in town day before, but she had a Texas DL. I figure with most cases in the media, there is lots more than what they tell.
