 BREAKING: Texas Police Officer Turns On Union, EXPOSES Cover Up In Sandra Bland Death (DETAILS)

Tuesday, a Texas law enforcement officer accused officials of covering up the events that led to the death of Sandra Bland last July after her arrest.

In an interview with Huffington Post reporter, Michael McLaughlin, Prairie View police officer, Michael Kelley said that some portions of his initial incident report regarding Bland’s arrest were removed. The portions removed were those that gave an unflattering view of the police officer who arrested Bland. Kelly also stated that he was threatened for speaking out about what he witnessed during the July 10, 2015 incident.

Bland died in a Waller County, Texas jail last year, three days after being arrested for allegedly assaulting trooper Brian Encinia. The department said that Bland had apparently committed suicide, a possibility that her family denies. The case made headlines across the country, and many critics and activists questioned why Bland had been arrested in the first place.

Kelley told the Huffington Post that when he arrived at the scene, Bland was already in the back seat of the squad car and handcuffed. The incident, Kelley said, began as a routine traffic stop and that the arresting officer, Encinia, had turned off his body camera. Kelley stated that when he arrived, he overheard that Encinia admitting that he wasn’t sure what charge to file against Bland.

Kelley states that that Encinia’s admission was removed from the official incident report:

‘My opinion is that he messed up. He did not have probable cause to detain her after he pulled her out of the car.’

Kelley also stated that it appeared to him that the 28-year-old Bland had been struck in the head, another portion of his incident report that seems to have been removed from the official record.

‘She had a large mark on her head. Maybe she fell when she was in handcuffs. Maybe she got kicked.’

Kelley told Huffington Post that Bland had complained about pain from the head injury but wouldn’t cooperate with the EMTs.
