About Sandra Bland

There's a great deal of hoo-ha unfolding now as to whether or not this woman did or did not commit suicide in that Texas jail cell.

What I'd like to know, is how did America get to a place where a "routine traffic stop" gets you in that jail cell in the first place?

The initial problem was what?... the turn-signal light didn't work? Well, alrighty Uncle Sam! Lets lock the perp up for the weekend for that burned out tail-light bulb.

From what I've seen of the take-down of this dangerous offender, the only person who should have been locked up is the arresting officer.

There's all kinds of folks busy as can be trying to fan the flames of race hate over this outrage. I will not for a moment suggest that there are not racist overtones in this case.

At the same time, let's not forget that two months ago nine men were shot dead in Waco, in a case that has been almost entirely swept under the carpet. How many of them were shot dead by law enforcement is a question that law enforcement seems extremely reluctant to answer.

None of those nine dead men were black.

Police brutality in Texas is an equal opportunity proposition.

EVERYBODY needs to get off the couch and make some noise!
