Sandy Bland’s family files a federal lawsuit because they believe she would not have taken her life

I watched this clip and i was struck by what the mother of Sandy Bland said about her daughter. She said her daughter knew enough about Jesus not to take her life. The Question is don’t Christians also have doubts and fears? Is Jesus enough? Watch the clip and share your thoughts.

Why did this traffic stop go so horribly wrong?

Would perfection have saved Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray or Sandra Bland?

Bland “was very combative,” DA Elton Mathis said. “It was not a model traffic stop … and it was not a model person that was stopped.”

By now you know the story of Sandra Bland. She was a 28 year old woman who moved to Texas to start a new job. She was pulled over by the police for a minor traffic violation. She was subsequently manhandled and arrested. The police say she committed suicide while in their custody. Her relatives contest this and a murder investigation is currently going on. I was reading an article about Bland and I was struck by the quote above from the DA. He said she was not a model person. What is a model person? Does model person mean complete compliance? What makes you a model person? Why is there always a need to demonize the victim even prior to all the facts being released? Perfection does not provide protection. Share your thoughts.
