Grand Jury Decides Not To Indict Any Officers Involved In The Death Of Sandra Bland
|Will Any Officers Ever Be Indicted In The Sandra Bland Case ?|
Law enforcement officials say that Bland hung herself with a plastic bag, but family members say that she was not suicidal.
During a news conference Monday, a family attorney and relatives in Chicago, where Bland was originally from, railed against the grand jury proceedings, saying they had "no confidence" in what they described as a "tool of the prosecution."
"I simply can't have faith in a system that's not inclusive of my family," said Bland's mother, Geneva Reed-Veal.

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders issued a blistering criticism of Bland's detention, but stopped short of saying the grand jury made a mistake.
"There's no doubt in my mind that she, like too many African Americans who die in police custody, would be alive today if she were a white woman," Sanders said in a statement.
