Sandra Bland was arrested in Texas for not following the rules of a traffic stop. She was wrongfully abused when she was arrested.

Her bail was $515. The next day, Ms. Bland was found dead in her cell. Supposedly she committed suicide. Now the family and others have been trying to get justice for her death because things do not seem to add up at all. Now that things have settled down, Texas now submits that Sandra committed suicide because she could not pay bail. They called it "financial issues."

According to the Chicago Sun Times:

Larry Simmons, the attorney for Waller County, says that Bland committed suicide after her family and friends refused to pay her bail of $515.

The county and their attorney are trying to throw the whole blame on the family. They are throwing false allegations on the table for the case.

In a statement, not only does Simmons blame the family and friends of Bland, but he alleges that Bland chose to commit suicide because of a lack of help.

“Ultimately, Bland’s decision to commit suicide was hers alone, after she denied any suicidal intentions to jail personnel, and after her friends and family refused to bail her out of jail,”  said Simmons, “It is apparent now that Bland’s inability to secure her release from jail — and her family and friends’ refusal to bail her out of jail — led her to commit suicide.”

Sandra's mother ,Geneva Reed-Veal, hired a lawyer. His name is Larry Rogers Jr. and he says that Bland's family did not ignore Sandra's call for bail. Geneva had a few comments for herself. She said:

The allegations are "gratuitous insult". A hearing is scheduled for next month so U.S. District Judge David Hittner can review evidence and statements in the case.


I still don't believe that Sandra Bland committed suicide. There are too many things that do not add up to the scene of what they are saying what "really" happened. I also think that it is wrong to insult, accuse and blame the victim's family. Geneva's daughter was not in her care. She was in Texas' hands.

To be 1,000% honest, I highly doubt that someone is going to commit suicide over $515. She would have went to trial and pleaded her side that she knew was right. No one in their right mind, who was wrongfully arrested, is going to commit suicide over a bail. Especially a bail that the attorney of Waller County said the family couldn't pay when they said none of that at all. Why is it so hard to obtain justice? What do you guys think is true?
