QUESTION OF THE MONTH
Why would a #BlackLivesMatter activist and critic of police brutality hang herself in her jail cell three days after being arrested in Texas during a routine traffic stop?
Sandra Bland (28 years old) was moving from Chicago to Texas for a new job when she was pulled over on Friday, July 10 for not signalling during a lane change, and arrested for allegedly “assaulting a police officer”. She told her family she believed her arm was broken. On Monday she was found dead in her cell. Texas authorities claim that she committed suicide. Her family disputes that claim.
