Video Of Sandra Bland's Arrest Captured On Her Cellphone, Finally Released

Video Of Sandra Bland's Arrest Captured On Her Cellphone, Finally Released

Sandra Bland her own arrest via her cellphone, and now, almost four years after her death, the video has been released to the public.

Bland, a Black woman found dead in a Texas jail in 2015 following a confrontational traffic stop, is seen having a stun gun pointed in her face at very close range by a white State Trooper who screams and yells for her to get out of her car. Trooper Brian Encina can be clearly heard telling Bland, "Get out of the car! I will light you up. Get out!"


Bland was found hanging in her jail cell just three days after her arrest.

Democratic state Rep. Garnet Coleman, who in 2017 carried the "Sandra Bland Act" said he will be investigating into why the footage was not released until now.

"It is troubling that a crucial piece of evidence was withheld from Sandra Bland's family and legal team in their pursuit of justice," Coleman said in a statement.

Bland's family told WFAA that they want the case to be reopened.

Local authorities kept this cell phone video from Sandra Bland a secret for 4 years. Local journalists @WFAA fought to get it released.

Sandra Bland knew her rights. She never should've been arrested and threatened in the first place. A gross abuse of power from this officer.

Authorities want us to believe Sandra Bland killed herself in jail due to minor traffic infraction. This woman was ready to fight them in court.

"I'll light you up," the officer says as he arms his stun gun and sticks it right in Sandra Bland's face after she...forgot to use her turn signal when she literally just tried to get out of the way for his speeding police car.

This whole ordeal was about white power.

Can’t bring myself to watch this newly released video of Sandra Bland. Last week I listened to Botham Jean struggle to live while his killer told 911 she was worried she’d lose her job. The traumatic sounds and images of Black lives being disregarded and disrespected is too much.

If she could've had cameras on her own vehicle that also follow the motions then we'd have more upsetting video of serious rights violations, blatant abuse of authority and false testimony of the arresting witness.

As usual, we are not suppose to be intelligent enough to know this woman did not kill herself  & the time it took to finally release video footage only shows they are trying to hide something OR waiting for us to forget about this. We're not suppose to be smart enough to know this was murder.
