Sandra Bland said that she couldn’t believe what was happening to her just because she didn’t use a signal to change lanes to someone she left a voicemail to after she was arrested.
“I’m still just at a loss for words honestly at this whole process,” she said on the message. “How did switching lanes with no signal turn into all of this, I don’t even know.”
The short voicemail was left 3 days before Bland was found dead in her jail cell and was only 22 seconds long.
She told her friend she was “able to see the judge” and her bail was set at $5,000 during the July 11 appearance.
Bland made three calls the Saturday she appeared in court, she called the friend, her sister and a bail bondsman that afternoon.
Bland’s sister, Sharon Cooper, confirmed that they have been told that Bland had a court hearing between her arrest and the morning of July 13 when she was found hanging dead in her cell.
