Her line sister, Alana Taylor said, "Sandra Bland is my line sister. Her personality and outlook on life alone DOES NOT resemble uncertainty or depression. She was a strong force that took life head on. Suicide would be the last thing on her mind as she was on the brink of starting a new chapter of life: a new job, a strong cause to fight for and a thick network of support. There are just too many discrepancies and holes in the official report. As far as her friends, chapter, alma mater and family are concerned: Sandy is still speaking and somebody is gonna listen. #SandySpeaks”


The 28-year-old woman was found dead in her jail cell last July.

A Waller County, Texas grand jury has declined to indict any police officers involved in the July death of 28-year-old Sandra Bland.

Bland was found dead in her jail cell on July 13, three days after she was arrested during a routine traffic stop. Law enforcement officials say that Bland hung herself with a plastic bag, but family members say that she was not suicidal.

Earlier tonight, special prosecutor Darrell Jordan told the Washington Post that he would not be seeking any charges against Waller County officers. However, he said that the jury would reconvene next month to deliberate undisclosed “remaining issues.” 

Hearings in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Bland’s family are scheduled to begin next month.
