Footage taken when Sandra Bland died in Texas jail is released – video

“Texas officials have released footage of wardens and medical staff reacting to the discovery of Sandra Bland’s body in Waller county jail. Officials say Bland was found hanged in her cell three days after being arrested. Activists say the traffic stop that led to her imprisonment became confrontational because a policeman was angry at Bland, who is African American, smoking a cigarette. The full version of the footage is around three hours long.”

All this started with her allegedly failing to give a signal when she changed lanes? I have seen people do that right in front of a DPS vehicle and the DPS didn’t pull them over.
