Cell Phone Video is a Powerful Tool to Address Police Brutality
Sandra Bland had just relocated to Texas from Chicago to start a new job. She was stopped by police for her apparent failure to signal properly while changing lanes.
After an arrest in which she ended up on the ground with a cop’s knees on her back as her arms were pulled behind her, Sandra was jailed in Waller County, Texas, where Blacks make up about 25% of the population.
Three days later, Sandra was dead.
