Just watched the dashcam footage from this mess, which happened about 1 1/2 hours from where I am right now.

 

The cop was a complete dick.  Yea, she was annoyed and she had a right to be.  The video is below.  The first car this asshat pulls over, he seems like a normal, nice cop.  The pullover with Bland really starts about 1:40 when you see that he pulls her over for not signaling a lane change...when all she's trying to do is get out of the his way.

 

What I find interesting is that she's an activist for Black Lives Matter, a group committed to exposing and ending this exact type of behavior among law enforcement.  Now she's found dead by hanging in her cell.  As of yet (and this will likely change, I'm sure), the jail video doesn't show any evidence of movement within 90 minutes of her death.  But there is, apparently, some missing 6 minutes of footage.  If she did commit suicide, could that be motivated by her being something of a martyr for the cause?

 

Either way, there sure seem to be a lot of these kinds of things and I'm not saying all cops are bad.  My take is that there is a certain percentage of all society which you can write off as being assholes.  The same goes for cops, just seems like that percentage is a just a little bit higher for cops.

Why would police murder her?  It makes no sense to me as a motive.

 

 

This cop was a cunt.

 

"Where are you off to?"

 

None of your fucking business.

News bulletin to all police officers. No one is happy about being pulled over whether they did something wrong or not. When you point out that they seem agitated, don't be offended (a pussy) when they tell you why.

I don't see a motive for the cop/cops to have murdered her.  The cop was an ass, and she didn't behave properly either.  She turned up dead, and I guess we'll see.

Guess here, suicide. she posted she was depressed and suffering from PTSD.

 

The cops probably violated some protocol by not checking on her, or removing items where she could cause self-harm, 

 

but we`ll see...

I think this video helps explain things a little better:

 

http://www.nbcnews.c...ll-488691779705

 

At least a plausible "how it happened"

 

It's still early of course and given the heightened sensitivity, nobody is giving up too much information
