Family: Release All Sandra Bland Evidence
The attorney representing Sandra Bland’s family is asking the Prairie View Police Department to hand over all dash cam video and other related information from her traffic stop.
Attorney Cannon Lambert filed the motion in U.S. District Court early Tuesday. Lambert expressed concern that there is more dash cam video from Bland’s encounter with a member of the police department that has not been seen.
“That’s a little troubling for us,” Lambert told ABC 13, “and we want to test whether or not there’s some rational explanation for that.”
The law firm representing the department says they do not have to give up any information regarding the incident because of an ongoing criminal investigation, and is claiming privilege.
In August, the Waller County District Attorney appointed five special prosecutors to examine evidence surrounding Bland’s arrest and subsequent death in the Waller County Jail.
Lambert says some of the jail footage given to him showing Bland had glitches in it.
“There are skips in it, there is time that is missing, or the frame freezes,” Lambert said. “The time stamp continues to go forward.”
The state trooper who arrested Bland, Brian Encinia, is still on administrative leave.
