Quannell X

About two dozen officers on horseback stood guard outside the apartment where State Trooper Brian Encinia lives in Katy, Texas.

Encinia is the officer who pulled over Sandra Bland during a routine traffic stop on July 17 that escalated when Bland resisted arrest for assaulting the officer.

Dozens of protestors attended a rally organized by Quanell X, who believes Encinia's actions led to Bland committing suicide in a Waller County jail cell on July 20.

"Had this police officer's behavior had not been what it was, and many of us believe his behavior was illegal, this sister perhaps today would still be alive," said Quanell X, who is the leader of New Black Panther Party in Houston, Texas.

"So he is complicit in the murder of sister Sandra Bland, and that's why we're going to his house. And many have said, 'well why go to his house?' Because these devils have been coming to the black community, raiding and destroying black children and black families for decades. So now it's time for us to let them know that when you murder our kids in cold blood, we will also come to your neighborhood and let you know: hands off of our children, hands off of our women."

Meanwhile, the Houston Chronicle newspaper angered African American readers by publishing a cartoon parody of the traffic stop that preceded her death.

    As for the topic at hand and whoever drew that cartoon......

  • luVn_liFe…

    I think the artist was trying to illustrate the absurdity of the unjust stop. Not trying to be funny OR realizing that it was VERY distasteful.

    Sandra Rose. Pull up a chair. What's going on with you? No ratchet posts. Just doom and gloom. You get dumped?

  • OpinionHated

    wow this is disgusting why would they think this is humorous - all this does is fuel more black/white anger... a part of me wants black America to rise up and kill them all but my family is a melting pot of races and I don't want them harmed but this kind of "journalism" is what fuels the hate that leads to murder....

    Afternoon Sandra and Roses.. Just popped in to say hello. Wow its getting real out there. Trooper needs protection and they at his house.. But why not at the black police officer's house who threw away the plastic bag that was evidence?
    The carton was not funny and very insensitive. Boycott the newspaper and hit them in the pocket!!

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Ok so maybe this was to show how ridiculous the police are? ....Like a politically satirical cartoon...the deeper meaning the ridiculous injustice of the police

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    I just said this

    they continually poke & prod this never healing scar of racism in this country & it will continue to fester until it BURSTS and the fallout will be unlike anything we've ever seen. *le sigh*

  • BLOODBLOOD

    ? wtf!!!!

  • OpinionHated

    then they missed their mark cause I didn't get that at all... I got mockery of a situation that shouldn't have happened in the first place... I live in Boston NOBODY uses signals but me - the entire city and maybe 4 people use signals ain't nobody go to jail for it yet...

  • http://www.landofpure.net Fayla

    there is no comedy to be derived from what happened to Sandra. None!

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    THIS isn't parody....

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    I would HOPE that the attempt (though not well executed) was to highlight the absurdity of the whole situation based on the cop's initial over-reaction. and to further send a message that this police dept could probably be expected to maintain that they 'did nothing wrong' and stand/hide behind 'we were only enforcing the law as it's written' justification/excuse.
    So, them pulling over the hearse would be, for them, business as usual because they lack the discipline/professionalism/intelligence to utilize sound judgment, even after they've obviously already gone too far.
    but, I'm just guessing though *shrug* :kona:

  • http://www.landofpure.net Fayla

    Quanell X is not a joke. He has been in the face of these devils for years. He plays no games. The entire department is afraid of him and he stays strapped. He also never travels alone. R.I.P Sandra Bland

    Why does mainstream media insist on posting that jailhouse pic of Sandra... I'm saying she looks highly disturbed in that pic (as would anyone who went through what she did) but I've seen nice pics of her why aren't they using any of those.. its like when they choose to post the thuggish looking pics of black men who've been killed by cops - lets make them look like crazy black people so we can further elevate racist white cop as the "good guy just doing his job".... someone please tell the police they are to protect and serve the public not each other...

    It's supposed to highlight the officer's horrible and ridiculous treatment of Sandra. I don't know if the Houston Chronicle ran the cartoon, but it originated from the Washinton Post under the title: Friday’s cartoon: Sandra Bland’s outrageous treatment. Folk don't even be tryin to get the facts no more.

  • Letmecommentbeforeicant

    The comic was meant to point out the wrongdoings of the cop. But, it should have never been placed as a cartoon because 1. people are still grieving and 2. it's dealing with an issue of racism and cops abusing their power which eventually led to a dead woman in a cell. Writers and editors of major news outlets should take into consideration the views of other people, especially if the story deals with racism, sexism, etc.

    2016 will be the end of equality as we know it.

    There will be a war on African Americans and NO POLICE, POLITICIAN OR POLICY WILL BE ABLE TO

    The comments on this post are as disturbing and insensitive as the cartoon. I applaud this brother for coming to the defense of AA women and children. My prayers go out to Sandras family for having to endure the wack ass posts n comments about their daughter

  • GossipKiller

    You died 3 times huh? Yes. Totally appropriate commentary for this particular post. ?

  • 1/8

    Americans, particularly some of us African Americans, are too sensitive and too reactionary.

    That cartoon poked fun at the arresting officer. Too bad missjia isn't sophisticated enough to understand that.

    Sandra Bland killed herself. She caused her own death. If she hadn't committed suicide in that holding cell, she would have eventually killed herself somewhere else.

    If the New Black Panther Party wants to protect depressed, self-medicating black women, they'll have to protect them from themselves!

  • scentsychick30

    Smh it's bad enough this will most likely weigh heavily on the hearts of folks in her circle that may have been able to help her but choose not to,the disrespect is unreal. Even in death Texas mocks her

  • 1/8

    The people in Bland's circle, particularly the ones who ignored her phone calls from jail, are partially responsible for her death. If they hadn't abandoned Bland in her time of need, she might still be here... at least until the next episode/arrest.

    Beyonce is from Houston. But I guess she won't be speaking up about Sandra Bland until either she or her husband have something else to promote, the way Jay-Z didn't mention Michael Brown or Eric Garner, even though he's also from Brooklyn, NY like Garner, until he wanted to drum up support for Tidal. When they want to sell something and need support from the Black community we'll hear about how they 'secretly' sent donuts to Bland's funeral or something.

    Who approved this to be published in the paper, somebody should be escorted out of the building. That's not even funny!

    Why is this fool not organizing a raid at the homes of the murderers in Chicago who are committing genocide against our own people? This s**t pissed me off as a mother of three black sons. You can play big boy against a Hispanic officer but will run away with your tail between your legs when it comes to cleaning up your own back yard . Come to the right house with that Ignorant BS to make yourself feel important and you won't leave the same way. Organize something to save our young black boys against their number one murderer- BLACK MEN!!!

    So do I, and you are right. Massholes get away with not signaling (it's not right but it happens) but it should never be a death sentence no matter what your local laws are.

    This article detailed a lot of fictitious information and is CLEARLY written from a very bias slant.
    Quanell X is NOT the leader of the New Black Panther Party, and Black people are not upset over a "suicide", we KNOW Sandra Bland was murdered. This was a typical move of the Jim Crow era and it has become typical of the present new Jim Crow. Houston Chronicle Black tragedy is NOT HUMOROUS on any LEVEL. This woman was just put in the ground this weekend, the dirt around her casket hasn't even settled yet, the trauma inflicted on the family and the wounds it left on the black community have not even began to heal. The real savages are not the black "thugs" that the media attempts to highlight on a daily basis but the BEAST that openly lie to the public and work in cohesion with legalized criminals to cover up the murder of yet another innocent and unarmed citizen. The REAL thugs are the one's whom have so little empathy for black life that they make comic strips of black victims in an attempt to eradicate all humanity from their death. Houston Chronicle thanks for letting black America know without any doubt where you stand on #blacklivesmatter, black lives do not matter to you but the almighty dollar does, and we will see to it that you never receive another dollar from us again.

    You dumb negroes in Chicago will continue to kill y'all selves even if s race war wasn't in effect.
    But the million dollar question is WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO STOP THE "genocide"!

  • Adrianna Caldwell-Wesley

    Whoever wrote this article has already made their mind up about whether the officer was in the right and if Sandra Bland committed suicide. The voice of this article is pro Encinia and against anyone speaking up for Ms. Bland.

    Strange. You asked me to explain my efforts to stop the black genocide in Chicago, but you never mentioned what you've done to address black on black violence, which effects every major city in America - not just Chicago.

    I do a lot of volunteer work. When I signed up with the Salvation Army, I specifically asked to be placed on the south side; a request that seem to befuddle the volunteer coordinator.

    I used to spend my weekends passing out free food and community outreach materials. I spent a lot of hours talking to young black boys about the alternatives to gangs and selling drugs.

    I used the Salvation Army's free food as means to spread a message of hope.

    Ok. Your turn!
