Ever since news of Sandra Bland’s suicide broke last week, there have been one ridiculous theory after another by the breathtakingly ignorant collective known as Black Twitter.

Black Twitter’s latest dumb theory is that Bland is “dead” in her booking photo. Are we looking at the same booking photo?

Has Black Twitter ever seen a dead body before?

Can Black Twitter chew gum and tie their shoelaces at the same time?

Here’s how we know Sandra Bland is NOT dead in her booking photo:

Sandra Bland booking photo

The LA TImes published Bland’s Waller County jail booking documents. Included the documents is the same booking photo; with the same folds in her clothes as the ones in the so-called “dead booking photo”.

Sandra Bland most likely received bad news from the bail bondsman that her family was not going to bail her out Monday morning.

She had a history of depression, and her arrest was one more stressful setback that she couldn’t handle.

She committed suicide. Depression is real.

One. More. Time. Sandra Bland is not dead in her booking photo.

Can we put this stupid theory to rest now?

      Sandra… I agree she’s not dead in the booking photo but is she standing upright? Until people have answers, they will speculate. I’m glad the FBI is looking into this. This is a “developed country” give us answers and hold the cop accountable for escalating the situation and threatening a female over a traffic offense.

      RIP to my soror.

      UPDATE:

      Investigators say no injuries consistent with a violent homicide were found during an autopsy of a woman who was found dead in a Texas jail.

      Waller County prosecutor Warren Diepraam on Thursday discussed details of the autopsy of 28-year-old Sandra Bland, who authorities say was found hanging in her jail cell on July 13.

      Diepraam says the autopsy showed that Bland had no defensive injuries on her hands that would typically indicate a struggle. He says some lacerations or abrasions were found on her wrists, injuries consistent with a struggle while being handcuffed.

      He also says marks around Bland’s neck are consistent. He says that in violent homicide, investigators wouldn’t see a consistent mark.

      He says the injuries that were found would be consistent with a suicide.

      This is a breaking news update. Check back later for more.

    • JayCee087

      This instance of Sandra Bland’s arrest is the indicative of the police state we live in now. The cop sympathizers will completely omit any professionalism from leo’s and expect all tax-paying citizens to be quiet and submissive when encountering a cop. Last time I checked, even when dealing with a loud, belligerent, stereotypical neck-snapping black woman, officers are supposed to DE-esculate a situation as possible as they can. Now we have cowards hiding behind the protocol of “shoot to kill” because they fear that people will disobey their every syllable, roll their eyes, walk up to them, etc…

      Such a shame that officers on scripted television act more professional than real life cops.

    • That’s Interesting

      Why the hostility towards Sandra Bland? At the most, she was troubled, got into a slight altercation with a police officer, and lost her life because of it, however she died. She never did anything so wrong to justify her being dead now. I believe she was murdered, and not to be funny, but I’m sure it’s depressing as h ell when you can’t get out of prison over a 500 dollar bond. Good gracious, why didn’t her family bail her out? Friends? Ex? Nobody could bail her out. A sad situation.

      I still think the cop should be further investigated by the FBI.
      His ego doesn’t belong in public service
      If she did suffer from mental illness then that shows he doesn’t have the patience required to deal with people who maybe under stress or in need of medical treatment.

      I think something fishy may have went on judging by his reactions to her reactions.

      Even if she committed suicide he still played a part in it by the way he handled the entire thing.

I just barely got my 3 month emergency fund together and i be looking at it like “i really could use some money out of that”

    • shaylynnn

      Why is she laying on the floor? She may not be dead but she certainly doesn’t look ok. Her family said they were bailing her out Monday. She was killed. Suffering from depression doesn’t equal suicidal. She was murdered & they’re trying to find anyway to cover this shit up.

    • Kinggg

      Why would somebody commit suicide for being arrested ? Not on trial……. Not about to face life in prison… an activist who spent years talking about police brutality etc, don’t you think she probably would’ve wanted to be released to share her story like the rest.

      the cop basically got into his feelings because she refused to put out her cigarette which frankly is her blasted right her car her cigarette step back you don’t like the smoke – something tells me he smashed her head into the pavement and broke something and she died – he could have given her a small hematoma that travelled into her brain as aneurism… who knows… very very sad…. but i’m still confused why after 3 days she still in jail on a traffic offense – whey dey do dat at?

      DPS Director Steve McCraw and Texas State Senator Royce West have released brief statements about the case. McCraw told the Washington Post today that Encinia did not display proper conduct.

      “Regardless of the situation, the DPS state trooper has an obligation to exhibit professionalism and be courteous,” said DPS Director Steve McCraw. “That did not happen in this situation.”

      When asked by reporters if Sandra Bland caused her own death, West said “no.” He also added that she didn’t deserve to be arrested in the first place.

Folks need to stop demonizing her like she is the one sensationalizing this story. I mean you got to be HURT HURT HURT to keep on acting like this woman deserved to die. Furthermore IF she was mentally ill painting her dismayed behavior as violent or hostile misconstrues the true struggle people with mental illness face.

      I completely understand that. That’s how I grew up, and I’ve been fortunate and blessed to keep money in my checking and savings since I started working full time. That’s why I do it because I never want to be dead broke, no matter what time of the month. You never know what will come up. But, my mama knew how to hustle. I’m not trying to disparage her family and I don’t know what happened, but my mama would have got that 500 dollars up. She would have gone to a check cashing place, she would have done a title loan, she would have borrowed, she would have overdrafted her checking account. Anything. There are ways to get 500 dollars. Aside from it being the weekend, and that can hold up bond, that 500 dollars should have been ready for her, especially in Texas in an extremely racist place that they knew nothing about.

      Sad truth her family is accountable for her death as well. I don’t think it was poverty. I think they didn’t care. And that’s the real reason Sandra Bland was crying she knew her family didn’t love her and didn’t care to bail her out. But they will happily file a wrongful death suit and live off her tragic death. How they could be so heartless and leave her there.

    • the guest

      Beautifully said. Sandra Bland was falsely arrested and dude due to police misconduct. Period.

    • the guest

      Police don’t shoot white celebrities that curse them out and talk about do you know they are and threaten to have them fired and some of them spit on the police and hit them and white celebrities don’t get man handled and shot by police.

    • Mzkp

      So Sandra, I will take it that you are in agreement that this officer was well within his rights to arrest this young lady? From the moment since you’ve posted this story you’ve pretty much ruled out the fact that it is possible that there is foul play here and I’d love to hear your reasoning.

      And that is beyond the fact that this woman posted about her being depressed because even that doesn’t rule out the fact that something could have possibly occurred within the several days of her being in custody.

    • <3 LoveDreamLive <3

    • the guest

      Please I hope her heartless family at least has the sense not to give her body back so they can NOW botch the autopsy for a cover up.

    • Mzkp

      So where is this information because the latest information that the public is aware of is this footage from the dash cam where he asks her to put out her cigarette. She refuses, he threatens to “light her ass up” and then all we hear is their altercation on top of this video that is floating around that gives the impression that its been tampered with.

      Although I agree that these latest claims of her being dead already is a stretch I’m actually in awe that you have the audacity to sit here and act like this extreme paranoia is not warranted in situations like this.

    • http://www.southernbellepublishing.com countrygal

      I love you Sandra but I don’t agree. She may very well be alive in the picture above but I doubt that she committed suicide. Losing a birth would make many women contemplate giving up on life. That’s the single most important thing a woman can do in life. This incident however cannot be attributed to being arrested on a ticket.

    • Mzkp

      EXACTLY. These police officers are in the field of INTIMIDATION rather than fulfilling the objectives of de-escalating situations. Instilling fear in civilians all while they are in complete violation of your rights.

      *sigh* Settle down honey. We’re on the same side. My point is that we shouldn’t get distracted while waiting for answers. I think that the cop(s) killed her while she was in custody.

      Did u see the video and how cars and people disappeared out of the video into thin air? when u r telling the truth, the truth NEVER has to be altered. I think she was alive in the pic but the point is, she never should have been there in the first place. As smart as your mouth is i hope you never get pulled over because u going straight downtown

    • Yup, I said it

      Some of the cops be on power trips. Ive only encountered a few but I always fall back keep calm start my phone recording or call 911 and tell them to hold and listen. Then I inform the irate cop that I will be contacting their sergent and internal review about their behavior, so they can be reminded that I pay taxes to be protected and served and not harrassed. Boy do they turn fire red but they check their attitude quick.

    • Angela

      She’s not dead but she’s not sitting up. I’ve worked in a funeral home. Her shoulders are straight across. This means that she pressed on something. Also if you’ve ever seen a body in a casket, you can see up the nose. Take a look at her nose. She’s on her back. I can’t say why they put her like this. But she’s not standing. Interesting enough, another inmate allegedly hung himself in the same jail a couple of years ago. He was also accused of assault on an officer. Something is rotten in this story. She should’ve gotten a warning or even a ticket and went on to her new job. Period!!!

    • MsJosie667

      Im quoting what another poster stated:

      “She has emotional problems to begin with evident by her previous suicide attempt..Put in an isolated cell, all she had to focus on was the reality that she is in another State, just got into a physical altercation with a cop, her head was hit, wrist and shoulder damaged, she was humiliated, likely In shock at the escalation and in physical pain, she probably thinking she’s lost her job, no money to bail her out Her family is not there She feels isolated,, vulnerable, overwhelmed, and after three days of that running through her mind, became despondent very quickly And makes Another attempt on her life This time succeeding.”

      I agree with this statement. She probably thought she lost her job and was probably very depressed sitting in that jail cell alone. She may have thought she had nothing to look forward too after being release. In jail you can get very very depressed. The officer who arrested her probably was in the wrong but that doesn’t mean he is an murderer. Sometimes everything is not always about race. In this case I believe to took her own life.

      I understand this Ms. Rose but the signs just don’t add up, depression is something we all face. I could lose my job right now and feel depressed like the world is against me and get a new job and all of those feelings go away. According to the footage she was on her way to an interview. As much sense as I try to make of this case it still doesn’t add up.

    • ABbaby

      Not only that,they are saying she had about 30 cuts on her wrist so if someone has 30 cuts on their wrist and it’s not covered up wouldn’t everyone see it? She had on a sundress with no sleeves. That means she wasn’t hiding the thirty cuts which is odd because a person who cuts themselves hide it and if she had that many cuts on her wrist the police would have noticed the cuts when they removed the hand cuffs and therefore would have put her on suicide watch. You will never get me to believe she had thirty cuts on her writs and none of friends and family noticed it.

      ??he became a tenured professor at the age of 30.
      “Tyrone Hayes, a scientist at the University of California, Berkeley, was hired by agribusiness giant #Syngenta (currently being bought out by #Monsanto) to study the herbicide atrazine, which is used on half the corn and soybean crops in the U.S. as well as Christmas tree farms and golf courses. What Hayes found was exactly what Syngenta didn’t want to hear: in studying atrazine’s effects on frogs, he discovered that the pesticide has a disruptive effect on the endocrine system.

      According to Hayes, it apparently interferes with male development, causes males to switch gender to female and develop ovaries and eggs, drops testosterone production, “chemically castrates” male frogs and later leads to development of homosexual behavior as the gender-altered frogs begin to prefer same-sex mating. Hayes’ research suggests that atrazine has the same effects on humans—however, before a thousand headlines like “Shocker: Corn Makes You Gay” are launched into the blogosphere, I’ll note that while researchers can often switch sexual orientation in animals by altering hormone levels, there aren’t significant differences in hormone levels between gay and straight humans. In fact, gay men often have higher testosterone levels than straight men, not lower. So to alter one’s sexuality, something synthetic, like Atrazine, must be used. ?? btw he’s black and beautiful

      I would like to see the profile mugshot. Not sure why that hasn’t been released, would certainly clear up a few issues. What seems strange here is that not only is she photographed in prison “garb” which is highly unusual in mugshots from Waller County as you can see in the link below– but also the shadows in the photo to the right of her and on the right side of her face and neck suggest directional light that if she were standing up would create shadow behind her right shoulder which is not there, making it very plausible that she is actually lying down. It truly is a very strange photo that does beg questions that should be answered.

      but you acting like them “ruling” her death a “suicide” the truth. I see you believe what anyone tells you. Depression may be real but just b/c someone suffered from it previously doesn’t mean they where suffering from it then. I find it funny how your narcissistic opinions are never backed with medical facts …just your opinion. Her FB latest FB posting showed no signs of a woman suffering from depression. Actually looking forward to her future. Why make the trip to Texas for a job interview, if your depressed. THAT makes no sense.

      You are ignorant and have the ability to reach the masses. Simply pathetic.

She got her dream job and was minding her business. She shouldn’t have even been arrested, hence this would have never happened.

Your so called article is just a low blow at the intelligence of twitters so called black community. As you can clearly read in your pointless and cruel insult “can black twitter chew gum and tie their shoes at the same time”. You’re what’s fucking wrong with this world.

    • fRAktal Reality

      Sandra, are those the SAME clothes Ms. Bland had on when she was arrested? Is it customary for individuals who have been detained in a jail cell to be issued a change of clothes BEFORE given a mugshot?

      Something is odd, peculiar and strange about that photo.

    • Tara Simpson

      She’s clearly not dead in this photo. What it looks like is her leaning into the wall pressing her weight into it. If she was dead she would have had no expression on her face. She’s clearly unhappy in this shot.
      With that being said, I hope she’s at peace now. Mental illness is so very often overlooked in the black community. It’s sad she felt she needed to take her own life. She owed a lot of money and suffered from depression and people have committed suicide for less but she should have gotten help, not taken the easy way out. RIP Sandra, my condolences are with your family.

    • CJ

      So true! I’m in Los Angeles and cops stay profiling. I was stopped for no reason and I asked for the Watch Commander who is his supervisor. What people don’t know is once he/she arrives, it’ll be hours of paperwork for the cop that stopped you because the W/C has to document the incident and the reasons he was called. In my case, once they arrived and the stop was determined to be unnecessary, I was told I may leave and to have a pleasant evening.

      Yes. I am manic depressive and I have had thoughts of suicide but every thought is not governed by this. And sometimes I do dumb -ish because I have free will not because I’m depressed. My depressive thoughts when I was a teenager are much different as a mother of three. My point: you cant judge a depressive person by past thoughts or actions. We are uber unpredictable and dots don’t always connect back to depression.

    • biracialpplseeallangles

      I don’t know, I wasn’t there but let me point out a few things. First of all her head is either on the wall or floor because on our right(her left) the dreads are compressed against the wall/floor. Now this is not strange however her chin is not tilted downward which is what naturally happens when the back of your head is up against a wall while you are standing. You know there is contact with the surface because there is NO SHADOW.That is what makes me think that she is lying down. Next she doesn’t look angry,mad, afraid…, hell, she doesn’t have ANY facial expression! She is blank. Also, the jaws are not full as in her other photos,Her cheek bones are accentuated as if the skin is pulled back, I also noticed that her sternoclavicular is very relaxed(the base of neck) gravity is responsible for this, she could be in a lying position.Try it, take a selfie, no expression upright, then do it lying down. Notice the small subtleties. I also noticed her nose is red, this can be attributed to a normal process during death-

      ii. Livor mortis/Post-mortem hypostasis (Lividity)

      When
      circulation of blood ceases, any subsequent movement of this liquid
      will be gravitational – that is to say, the blood will tend to flow
      downward. Consequently they will accumulate in capillaries and small
      veins in dependent parts of the body, and this is manifest as a purple or reddish-purple colour7 on the skin. This is known as lividity, and it is usually apparent within half an hour to two hours after death,-http://h2g2.com/approved_entry/A2451683

      All of that is to say that, if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it is a duck. I DO NOT BELIEVE THIS WOMAN KILLED HERSELF! So she was suffering from PTSD, she was depressed, hell,we are all depressed at some point! She was getting her life on track, she was vibrant and looking forward to her new job. So are you trying to tell me that she had to wait until she was arrested to hang herself with a plastic bag? And just where in the hell did she get a plastic bag from anyway. Something is not right here.Standing, sitting or otherwise, I scream foul play.

    • biracialpplseeallangles

    • Diaspora

      It looks like she’s lying on the floor. In normal booking photos people are told to lean forward towards the camera. She isn’t; her shoulders are rolled back and resting on the surface behind her. Plus the fact that her braids touch the surface behind, instead of hanging down as they usually do per pictures taken of her while alive.

      In conclusion, even if she isn’t dead there, she may for instance have had a seizure (she told the cop who arrested her she had epilepsy, and a scrip for Keppra was noted on her paperwork.) and be recovering on the floor in that pic. It’s possible her death was even accidental—if she aspirated vomit or hit her head whilst seizing, the police might easily have panicked and covered it up so it wouldn’t seem like they murdered her. If that was the case—-they did a shitty job of it.
