SAY HER NAME
On July 10, Sandra Bland, a 28-year-old African-American woman, was arrested following a confrontation with state trooper Brian Encinia after being pulled over for failing to signal when changing lanes in Waller County, TX. The confrontation ensued when Bland refused to put out her cigarette and leave her vehicle. In cellphone footage shot by Bland, Encinia can be seen leaning into the car and taking out his taser. Three days later, Bland was found dead in her jail cell with the cause of death being ruled died by suicide. We will continue to #Sayhername.
