Sandra Bland was a year-old African-American woman who was found hanged in a jail cell in Waller County, Texas , on July 13 , , three days after being arrested during a traffic stop. It was followed by protests against her arrest, disputing the cause of death, and alleging racial violence against her. The exchange escalated, resulting in Bland's arrest and charge for assaulting a police officer. The arrest was partially recorded by Encinia's dashcam , by a bystander's cell phone and Bland's own cell phone. After authorities reviewed the dashcam footage, Encinia was placed on administrative leave for failing to follow proper traffic stop procedures. Texas authorities and the FBI conducted an investigation into Bland's death   and determined the Waller County jail did not follow required policies, including time checks on inmates and ensuring that employees had completed required mental health training. In December , a grand jury declined to indict the county sheriff and jail staff for a felony relating to Bland's death.
