VIDEO: Grand Jury Issues No Indictments Over Sandra Bland's Death in Texas Jail

A Waller County, TX, grand jury issued no indictments for the death of Sandra Bland Monday night.

After listening to reams of evidence in three lengthy sessions, the grand jury decided not to indict anyone in Sandra Bland’s death, nor any of the employees at the Waller County Jail, where she died in custody back in July. The medical examiner ruled it a suicide, saying she hanged herself in her cell.

“There are other issues that the grand jury is still considering,” said Jordan.

That includes potential charges against the DPS trooper who pulled Bland over, in a traffic stop that escalated and landed Bland in jail. The grand jury will reconvene in January to consider whether to bring other charges, KHOU TV reports.

Seems to be the correct result as far as I can tell from reports. She was a very troubled person who took her own life. Im sure that "Black Lives Matter" types wont ever agree and will say that even the Medical Examiner is in on the conspiracy. I don't know all that facts obviously but I hope that the Grand Jury investigation of the DPS Trooper has the same result. I bet we still see a huge law suit over this death, even if she did take her own life since we in Law Enforcement have to be infalable and seems everything that happens is somehow our fault. I wish juries would always consider when they give awards in these type of incidents that the monies paid come from their own pockets, its from the tax payers and doesn't grow on trees.

If Sandra was white, would you even be mentioning her death at all?
And we wonder why there has become so much racial divide recently!
It's you, the media, that's the problem.

The lawsuit of wrongful death is what the family is looking for, and you know what? They're gonna get it. BLM will definately be the ones who take center stage on this, and they will gladly take their share of the money. These people are nothing but a bunch of leaches. The city will definately settle on some type of payment. Guaranteed.

@ S.S.
1 Yes dear.

2 Why don't you explain in detail EXACTLY how BLM is going to get part of any civil lawsuit.

3 The one thing that is "Guarantied" is that people who are always 100% so sure of themselves
is that they are always very loud and most often wrong.

Do you really need to have this dumbed down for you percy? It's called representation. we all know blm is gonna be all over this. You would think that you have something better to do, but I remembered not very many people like you...even your mom.
