Sandra Bland was stopped by a trooper for failure to signal a lane change. The dashcam video shows that the officer sped up behind the back of her car in the left lane, a move by the police that I cannot stand. Bland did what most people would do, she moved to the right lane, only, she didn’t signal before doing so. The trooper pulled her over. She was pissed, but said nothing. When the trooper returned to her car he asked her what the problem was (apparently she looked annoyed.) For the record, I think this is the second dick move by the officer. It’s unnecessary banter because he knows exactly why she looks annoyed.
Bland gave the officer his answer. She said he sped up behind her and when she gave him the right of way he pulled her over, and that wasn’t too cool. Good for her, she’s right.
Now it was the officer that was annoyed. Looking for anything to recapture his position of power he told her to put out her cigarette inside her own car. That was dick move three. He could have given her the warning ticket he said he wrote up and went on his way, but he had so much more in store for her. Sadly, she took his bait and she refused. It was at that point he told her to get out of the car. Dick move four.
What is this guy doing at this point? Who is he, the Gestapo? He’s out there creating strife, escalating it, yet demanding complete respect in the face of what anyone can see is a nothing burger of a situation, one he can’t walk away from because he’s got some sort of character flaw.
He pulls her out the car and arrests her for resisting arrest, which is a neat trick.
That’s the backstory. Now the main story.
Sandra Bland was found hanged in her jail cell a couple of days later.
It was a stupid situation escalated by a stupid cop followed by a stupid decision by Sandra.
Or was it?
There’s a growing contingent of people on the internet saying that Bland was murdered.
What’s their proof?
Feelings, nothing more than feelings… oh, and a dashcam anomaly caused by what the police department is saying were buffering issues.
Here’s the Daily Koshole who may or may not be the first person to UNCOVER THE CONSPIRACY!!!!
At 32:37 a car traveling away from the camera blinks once, then VANISHES into thin air. The video is obviously and very clumsily edited at that point.
What kind of fools do they take us for? -VEGA

Anyone with an ounce of brain power can see that the car doesn’t VANISH. The video on the dashcam backs up a second and replays what we just saw. Nothing is missing, a portion was replayed.
In this other clip there are more video anomalies while the audio goes uninterrupted. That’s it. Bland was murdered.
This is my problem with conspiracy theorists. What could possibly have been on this video, and removed, that would prove that Sandra Bland was murdered?
Did the officer say, “you know what? As I’m thinking about this, this woman might have a case against me and it may threaten my career. I’m going to see to it that she dies in her jail cell”? Is that what the conspiracy theorists are thinking?
Conspiracy theorists start with a preferred outcome and work backwards looking for irregularities, and when they find some it somehow proves their outcome, whether it logically fits as damning evidence or not. Just find something, anything, odd and it proves your theory.
It matters little to them that the jail cell footage in the hallway shows no one entering or leaving Bland’s cell during the time she died.
“Ya, but BigFurAsshole, if they doctored the dashcam footage they would hesitate to doctor the jail cell footage.”
Why would they doctor any footage? If they wanted Bland dead there’d be easier ways than going into her jail cell on camera, killing her, and then doctoring footage, no?
“Shut up, racist!”
