Jail Releases More Footage of Sandra Bland Before Her Death

Texas authorities on Tuesday released several hours of video footage showing Sandra Bland during her three days in jail, saying they wanted to dispel rumors that she was dead before arriving there. Waller County Judge Trey Duhon said such conspiracy theories — including one that Bland's mug shot was taken after her death — have prompted death threats against county officials. Duhon said, "Because of some of the things that's gone out on social media, this county has been literally attacked." Authorities have ruled that Bland's death, three days after her arrest during a confrontational traffic stop, was a suicide.
