Sandra Bland, the black woman found hanging dead in a Texas jail days after a traffic stop, smoked or possibly swallowed a large amount of marijuana while in custody, her family’s attorney reported the district attorney as saying.
Waller County District Attorney Elton Mathis made the disclosure in a text message to attorney Cannon Lambert, who has called the state’s autopsy on the Chicago-area woman defective, Lambert said.
“Looking at the autopsy results and toxicology, it appears she swallowed a large quantity of marijuana or smoked it in the jail,” Mathis said in a text message to Lambert that the attorney provided to Reuters.
Reuters could not immediately verify the authenticity of the text. Repeated calls to Mathis’ office were not returned.
“This will of course be very relevant in any future criminal or civil litigation,” the message from Mathis to Lambert said.
Bland was pulled over on July 10 near Prairie View, Texas, northwest of Houston, for failing to signal a lane change. After the incident escalated into an altercation between her and the trooper, Bland was taken into custody and charged with assaulting an officer. She was found hanging in her jail cell on July 13 with a plastic trash bag around her neck.
Her death was originally ruled a suicide, although officials have said they are handling it as a murder probe.
This is simply unbelievable. She was arrested for smoking a cigarette in her own car. Then she was assaulted and incarcerated. I suspect that once that piece of shit trooper watched her get out of the car and saw that she was towering over him, his little dick syndrome really kicked in.
To expect people to now believe that the autopsy was botched (how do you botch an autopsy), oh yeah, I forgot, they probably forgot to mention the marijauna in her system. They want her body back now, probably to plant a big wad of it somewhere.
I hope her mother refuses.
And why on page three of this police document, do they have different print dates?
Why is her mug shot picture so dark? I
When was the last time that anyone actually heard from Sandra? I am not buying this Monday morning suicide at all.
