More evidence surrounding the tragic case of Sandra Bland continues to surface. The police officer who took Bland into custody was  reportedly fired from his previous job due to racism allegations.

According to Independent UK,

Glenn Smith became sheriff of the Waller County Police Department the same year he was fired from his position at the Hempstead Police Department.

The site continues:

Activist Herschel Smith told the Houston Chronicle that many residents were worried about police misconduct, citing an incident where black children were forced to strip search during a mistaken drug raid led by Glenn.

“He got off way too lightly considering his humiliation and mistreatment of young African American males,” Herschel said.

Bland was found hung in her jail cell only three days after failing to turn her car signal on. We will keep you updated on the latest..

  1. I happen to be in Hempstead, Texas, on Friday, July 17th, to watch the rally, protest and march. All citizens, were shocked, concerned and upset. How much longer, must we have to deal with events of this caliber. The Bland Family, stay strong and we pray, you get your answers, justice, and peace! Rodney J. Radio/TV Reporter, for 22 years.

    She smarted-off like many black women do and that cracker killed her for it; or, the depression she was admittedly suffering struck and she off’d herself.
