State Trooper Who Arrested Sandra Bland Has Been Fired

Brian Encinia, the state trooper who arrested Sandra Bland, has been officially fired. His termination comes three months after he was charged with perjury.

Via The New York Daily News:

Encinia is accused of lying about his July 2015 arrest of Sandra Bland, whose confrontational traffic stop with the trooper was recorded on dashcam video.

Encinia can appeal his firing to a state board. His attorney has said the indictment isn’t justified and that Encinia was looking out for his own safety.

The family of Bland, a 28-year-old black woman from Chicago, has sued the Department of Public Safety and local authorities who ran the jail where she was found dead.

Her death was ruled a suicide.

We all know Sandra did NOT commit suicide and Brian Encinia is proof that the Waller County Police Department won’t hesitate to tell a hot lie.

We still want justice.
