Judge Sets 2017 Trial Date For Sandra Bland’s Suspicious Death

Justice for the suspicious death of Sandra Bland is officially underway. On Thursday, U.S. District Judge finally set the trial date for Bland’s death.  Waller County attorney’s argued that Sandra committed suicide after just 3 days in her jail cell, after not being bailed out by her family’s inability to quickly post her bail.  Sandra’s family wasn’t buying that story one bit, and instead pursued the injustice with the help of the media. According to Huffington Post, they are suing for unspecified damages from the Texas Department of Public safety, the state trooper who arrested Sandra, Waller County and two jailers. The trial date is set for January 23, 2017 – still a hefty wait for answers.  As Sandra’s mother would agree, after the hearing she stated, “My daughter is gone. …I walked into these [courthouse] doors with continuations, dates and delays. I’m coming out of these doors with continuations, dates and delays.”

Smh. Hopefully justice is finally served. Do you guys foresee an outcome? Sound off in the comments
