#WhatHappenedToSandraBland: Arrest Video Footage Appears Edited

| July 22, 2015 | 0 Comments


Black Lives Matter civil rights activist Sandra Bland died while in police custody and they claimed it was suicide. She was pulled over for a traffic violation where she was aggressively arrested. The dashcam footage has been released and of course the footage does not line up with the officer’s account, as always is the case right?

The worst part of the footage may be how it appears. Once it was released many people pointed out how the video looks heavily edited and it displayed continuity errors. Once pulled over, Bland is irritated and contests the ticket while smoking a cigarette. Texas state Trooper Brian Encinia becomes irate when Sandra does not put out her cigarette after he asked her to. He then opens the door and tells her to step out and says she is under arrest. Bland rightfully questions what she has done and Encinia pulls out a taser and says, “Get out of the car! I will light you up! Get out! Now!”

The video misses her actual arrest but catches audio. The video also begins to make no sense around the 25 minute mark in terms of what we are viewing. A tow truck driver can be seen exiting his truck. Then, 15 seconds later, he is seen exiting the truck again without having ever returned.

At the 32 minute mark a white car makes a left turn repeatedly without the audio being interrupted.

Ava DuVernay, an Oscar-winning director, can see that the footage was edited as she tweeted.

The video was released and recorded by Texas Department of Public Security, it would not be a shock if they edited it also. The question still remains why? What happened that the film had to be edited and that just raises more suspension about what happened to Sandra Bland while her life was in their hands. Sandra Bland’s death is being investigated as a homicide.

The old saying goes, “Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see”. With this investigation everything needs and should be questioned.

Do not believe anything mainstream media will show or tell you in regards to Sandra Bland without doing your own research. There should be no rest until we KNOW what happened to Sandra Bland.
