Hacking Anonymous group claims to have proof of Sandra Bland’s murder (video)

“Greetings world, we are Anonymous. We are preparing to release leaked files regarding Sandra Bland’s case,” said a voice on a YouTube video claimed to have been uploaded by Anonymous. “We will release the leak at 4 p.m. Eastern Time.”

People who knew Sandra Bland, the 28-year-old Chicago-area woman found dead in her jail cell July 13 after an arrest in Texas, said they can’t accept officials’ explanation that she took her own life. The hacker activists’ group Anonymous this week added fuel to conspiracy theories that Texas State Troopers and the Waller County Sheriff’s Department have lied about Bland’s death and might even have been responsible for staging it as a suicide.

The group said Texas authorities had failed in their attempt to cover up “a blatant act of crime against an innocent woman,” in a video that surfaced Tuesday on a website that claims affiliation with Anonymous. As officials continued to investigate Bland’s death, which medical examiners have twice ruled a suicide, Anonymous threatened to expose what it described as officials’ “lies,” and called for a day of “Rage for Sandra” on Aug. 8 to demand action against the involved Texas authorities.

Bland’s case has sparked a nationwide debate over the circumstances leading to her being jailed for allegedly assaulting Texas State Trooper Brian Encinia, 30. Three days before jail guards in Hempstead, Texas, discovered her body, Bland arrived in the area because she had just accepted a job offer at her alma mater, Prairie View A&M University. Encinia pulled over her vehicle for failing to signal before changing lanes, police said.

A widely seen dashboard-camera video shows Encinia and Bland arguing about the traffic stop, before their exchange escalates to Encinia threatening Bland with a stun gun. The trooper then arrests Bland, out of view of the dashcam. Bland remained in jail for two days, while waiting for family members to raise money for a $5,000 bond. She was found dead July 13 of an apparent suicide by hanging.

“We will not stand as Sandra’s death becomes another hashtag and then a statistic,” read a statement on the Anonymous website. “We, not as Anonymous but as citizens of the United States, are tired of the cycle of murders and cover-ups made by police departments across the nation.”

The group also called on police chiefs to join demonstrations in each city where they are staged and “renew their pledge to protect the people they serve.” Over the last year, Anonymous members have protested a handful of police violence cases that drew international headlines, including the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, where local activists plan to mark the one-year anniversary Aug. 9. We’re not sure that’s the case but this is what the video claims:

  • Anonymous sites several contradictory police records about the cause of Bland’s death including the use of marijuana within the jail cell that clouded her judgment.
  • The next big claim was that Bland was already dead in her mug shot. This is due to “evidence” about the way her body was positioned on the camera and the attire she wore in the picture.
    • The jail she was sent to doesn’t put its detainees in an orange jumpsuit until they are fully admitted.
      • The mug shot taken by police clearly shows Bland in a bright, orange jumpsuit.
      • If you look at the jail’s online records page you will see proof of this.
    • The rest of the mug shots on the jail’s site show detainees standing straight up, with square shoulders and their backs off the wall.
      • In Bland’s mug shot she was seen pressed against wall, looking dazed and away from the camera.
      • Her dreadlocks were also floating up and away and her face appeared as though gravity was pulling her features down toward her ears.
      • Anonymous claims that this body positioning clearly shows that Bland was lying down on the floor when the mug shot was taken, already dead.

We’re not sure what to believe, but the idea behind a police cover-up is startling to say the least!
