Who is Sandra Bland?

I had to google also. I can't keep up with every single controversy.

I was linked to the Twitter page where (I believe) the whole "she's dead in her mugshot" thing started. I was annoyed reading the comments because of how the whole thing frenzied out. It's like one person planted the seed and everyone else ran with it and found more and more "evidence" which made no sense. They were saying the way her hair falls and the slant of her shoulder proves she couldn't possibly be standing up :/

Not to be morbid but...wouldn't her eyes be glazed over or otherwise be affected if she has in fact already died? Bruises/contusions or other marks from the hanging? I think the qualities of the mugshot can be simply blamed on poor artificial lighting.

I just don't see what the point of her being dead in the picture would be... She was in jail a couple days before she died. I don't get how that even makes logical sense.

People are saying that she was "killed" before she went to jail, they got her dressed out & then laid her on the floor to take the mug shot.

I don't get how people are coming to that conclusion because she called family & friends from the jail.

Ok, part of my job is to pronounce people when they die. I've seen a lot of dead people.

She's not dead.

That's part of my job too - she is not dead.

Why do people do this? :facepalm:

(Klone - I didn't know about her until a couple of days ago. I don't follow the tv media either).

I think the experts weighed in on this already and said there's no way to tell for certain if she's dead or alive in the picture but that they're pretty sure she's alive.

Edit: However, I do love a good conspiracy theory. Did you just see Elvis walk by?

He's the one who took the picture!!

And if "experts" can't tell? Please, release their names. I don't want them anywhere near me when I kick the bucket!!

I saw another mug shot picture of this woman on Instagram. The one being shown in this article looks different and is allegedly photo shopped.

Dead people don't look at the camera with their eyes open.

I've given post mortem care to many people and believe me when i tell you she is not dead.
