Sandra Bland’s family has reached a $1.9 million settlement deal in the wrongful death lawsuit, per the family’s attorney Cannon Lambert.
CNN is saying the settlement includes compensation for her death as well as a change in some of the Waller County Jail’s procedures.
Bland was found dead in her cell just three days after being arrested for failure to signal.
Now that I’ve got the news out the way….
WHAT THE HELL?!
Does a settlement suit mean that the Waller County Jail is indeed acknowledging the fact that her death was NOT a suicide?!
Why is the deal less than $2 million?! No amount of money would bring her back but you mean to tell me that they could only settle at $1.9 million?! The people on the commercials being hit by 18 wheelers get more than that… And they’re alive.
Something is not right. I’m sure there’s more to the story. So check back for updates!
