INTERNATIONAL: Grand jury decides against indictments in Sandra Bland case

635726443366152233-Bland-03CNN – A grand jury in the case of Sandra Bland has decided not to return any indictments.

The grand jury met for more than eight hours Monday.

“After reviewing all the evidence in the death of Sandra Bland, a Waller grand jury did not return an indictment in the death of Bland, nor were any indictments returned against any employee of the Waller County Jail,” said Darrell Jordan, a special prosecutor handling the case.

The grand jury will reconvene in January to consider other indictments.

Bland, an African-American woman, was found dead in her cell three days after she was arrested for allegedly failing to use her turn signal on July 10. She was 28.

Officials in Waller County, Texas, have said she hanged herself with a plastic bag. Her family and others have questioned that account.

  1. We need to send the Jamaican police to investigate this one. We the Caribbean heads of state are not happy with this process. We are against extra judicial killings especially when race is a factor.


  2. Arrested for failing to use a turn signal?????!!!!! ???? what the arse wrong with these Americans? You mean a warning could not have been issued! Smdh. Slammed my cup of tea down so hard it spilled all over my table and floor. To me that's bull!


    • I agree. Drivers make innocent mistakes and this do not warrant Arrest and Jail as it stands. This is definitely a Cover Up. America, preaching Cleanliness to the World when their Home is Filthy.
