Accountability for Sandra Bland

Ask the U.S. Department of Justice to conduct an investigation into Sandra Bland's death and the possibility of civil rights violations by the police department.

Why is this important?

The investigation of this case was tainted from the start. Sheriff Glenn Smith, who was fired from a previous job for alleged racism and police brutality, appointed an "independent" commission to review his department. This commission is headed by Paul Looney, an attorney with financial ties to the county's top elected official Carbet Duhon III, who would be responsible for payment to Sandra Bland's family if wrong doing was found. There is no chance for Justice here. Sandra and her family deserve better, please sign this petition and let our government know this is unacceptable.
