Dash cam video footage from a Prairie View police cruiser shows a fresh angle of the Sandra Bland arrest
You can’t hear anyone talking in this video.
By the time the officer pulls up, Bland is already in the back of the patrol car of the female Prairie View officer who responded to Trooper Brian Encinia’s call for backup.
You may recall that’s the same Prairie View officer who told Bland she should have thought about her epilepsy before she resisted arrest. She’s on administrative leave.
You can see that the officer in this video standing in the same spot where the arrest had just gone down.
Later in this video, you also see the officers walk back to the car, one reaches in and takes Bland out. They put her against the car, patted her down and put her back in.
And you can see the officers continue to talk while Bland sat in the back of that patrol unit.
At this point, when we compare this video with the original dash cam video from Trooper Encinia’s unit, it appears this is the point where he’s heard explaining to someone on the phone that tried to de-escalate the stop, that it didn’t work, and laughing that he didn’t have any serious bodily injuries, but that he was kicked.
