Suicide or Murder? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

Controversy and speculation surround the events of Sandra Bland’s death. The 28 year old Chicago woman who committed suicide in a Waller County (Texas) jail was stopped by state trooper, Brian Encinia for failure to signal before changing lanes.

The dashcam video shows, Encinia approaching Bland’s car and asking to see her driver’s license and insurance. Bland not only had an attitude with the officer but she was noncompliant when the officer asked her to extinguish her cigarette.

Bland refused to put her cigarette out and subsequently refused to follow the officer’s order to get out of her vehicle. She calmly obliged and exited her vehicle with her hands in the air when the officer pulled out his stun gun.

sandrablandbooking-550At some point a scuffle ensued, Bland kicked the officer and he arrested her for assault. Three days later Bland was found dead in her jail cell of an apparent suicide.

While there are many theories behind Bland’s mysterious death, her being dead in her booking photo is just one of them.

So in a racist county such as Waller County (Texas), was it suicide or murder?

Join me tonight at 6:30 p.m. on “Conversations Of A Sistah” as I address this question and talk about the comparison between Bland’s suicide and that of another black woman in the same cell the day before.

I will be taking your calls on this subject at 1-917-889-7872, please press “1” to speak with the host.

See you on the air!

    The circumstances surrounding her death is a serious mystery. It’s hard to call but her family swears she would’ve never committed suicide. It’s a toss up really. All’s I know is, she was sassy as hell with that trooper.

        There was no reason for her to exit the car or be detained by that trooper. He escalated it because according to him “she looked straight ahead and wouldn’t look at me.”

        Why don’t you go search for whistle blowers and “the code of silence” that exists within police departments.You’ll find plenty of cases of officers expressing their experiences and how retaliation, intimidation and improper treatment is the verdict for people who have the balls to come forth.
