Sandra Bland, a young black woman, was pulled over for failure to signal in a small town in Texas, and then arrested. Three days later, on July 13th, 2015 she was found dead in her cell. The police claim she hanged herself, but the Bland family and her friends do not believe a word of it.
“…friend and mentor LaVaughn Mosley, 57 [[said]] “She was making plans for the future, so there’s no way she was in a suicidal state.”
Join those who stand against police terror and the outrage of in-custody deaths, in especial memory of Sandra Bland.
After Sandra Bland was pulled out of her vehicle and thrown to the ground a bystander video has her saying
You just slammed my head into the ground. Do you not even care about that? I can’t even hear! … You slammed me into the ground and everything.
AT FIRST THEY USED A NOOSE, NOW ALL THEY DO IS SHOOT #BlackLivesMatter #SandySpeaks https://t.co/O23QJytGVn

Join others who have signed a petition calling for the Department of Justice to do an autopsy on Sandra Bland.
We will stand in memory and we will let the world know about Sandra! Bring signs.
This event will be repeated each day this week and possibly into the future.

#SandraBland didn’t assault that damn officer. He assaulted her, threatened her, violated her rights. https://t.co/mIKNbdm3ua
