The death of Sandra Bland is something that’s seared into the consciousness of Black Americans all across the country. From the extreme escalation of a routine traffic stop to the more than suspicious circumstances of her death, the brutality that she likely faced continues to haunt us. Perhaps nothing more sinister could have added to this story than a second death. Which has happened in the case of Evan Lyndell Parker, 34, who was found hanging in the same Texas jail cell where Bland was found in 2015. He was transferred a nearby hospital where he died two days later. According to reports by KHOU, Texas Rangers are now investigating Parker’s death as a suicide.

Parker was taken into custody at the Waller County Jail for murder and aggravated assault charges on January 10. Following the discovery of his body, the jail released the following statement: “There was an apparent suicide attempt at the Waller County Jail in the early morning hours of January 25, 2019. Upon discovery of the male inmate, he was rushed to the hospital in Houston where he is alive and being treated for his injuries. At the request of the Waller County Sheriff, the F.B.I. and the Texas Rangers have been asked to take the lead in the investigation surrounding the suicide attempt. At this time there is no information to show that any procedures or guidelines were not followed by the jail staff.”

Question: What are the odds of a second suicide taking place in the same jail let alone the same cell? At least 178 people have committed suicide in jail since 2011. 178. That’s about 22 suicides each year in America’s more than 5,944 jails and prisons. Meaning there’s a 0.37 percent chance of a suicide happening at any one institution. The stats make this man’s death actually being a suicide hard to swallow.

And if we’re supposed to accept the location and manner of both Bland and Parker’s deaths are a coincidence, why hasn’t the Waller County Jail done more to prevent suicides from happening? Why are guards not doing more frequent safety checks? And why can inmates still access potentially dangerous materials used for suicide?

  • aint watching that hit job. why them bitches wait till he dead before they come out with this bullshit. aaand we got another strange ass mame in this bitch shading. They testified under oath that MJ never did anything inappropriate to them...I'm not watching the documentary because which lie do they want us to believe... FUCK HBO!! � � I will be checking it out on demand. What I find odd is why wait to tell the truth if it is truth. I mean didn't one of those two guys appear before a court hearing on the early 2000's when Michael was being accused? One of them stated nothing never occurred even remotely sexually with Michael being a sexual predator. However, I believe at one time I read some where Quincy Jones might have made a statement towards Michael as well as those who lived at his estate in Neverland Ranch to think strongly not having a kid or kids hanging up around him and or sleeping in his bed with him, etc., etc. Sorry,folks but it doesn't seem right even if it would have been his own children after a period in a child's life with sleeping in the same bed. Folks always trying to make a name for themselves lately, off the skins of someone else's success. Rather on Social Media or Documentaries.

  • A Florida student aged just 11 has been arrested after refusing to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, calling it racist to black people and then allegedly threatening his teacher. The schoolboy was kicked out of class Lawton Chiles Middle Academy in Lakeland after refusing to stand, Bay News 9 reports. He was arrested by the school resource officer and taken to a juvenile detention center after allegedly refusing to follow multiple commands. According to the arrest affidavit he also repeatedly called school leaders racist and threatened to get staff fired. The report says the boy, who doesn't normally stand for the pledge, said: 'I'm going to beat that teacher. I'm going to get all of you fired.' He denies threatening to beat the teacher. Trouble is said to have flared when a substitute teacher asked the youngster to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance. When he refused, saying the flag and national anthem were offensive to black people, the teacher said she asked: 'Why if it was so bad here he did not go to another place to live. The boy is said to have replied: 'They brought me here.' In a statement to the district the teacher said she answered: 'Well you can always go back, because I came here from Cuba and the day I feel I'm not welcome here anymore I would find another place to live.' 'Then I had to call the office because I did not want to continue dealing with him.' Now his mother, Dhakira Talbot, said any disciplinary action should have been taken by the school, not law enforcement. She told Bay News 9: 'I'm upset, I'm angry. I'm hurt. More so for my son. My son has never been through anything like this. I feel like this should've been handled differently. 'If any disciplinary action should've been taken, it should've been with the school. He shouldn't have been arrested. 'She was wrong. She was way out of place. If she felt like there was an issue with my son not standing for the flag, she should've resolved that in a way different manner than she did. 'I want the charges dropped and I want the school to be held accountable for what happened because it shouldn't have been handled the way it was handled.' The boy was charged with disrupting a school function and resisting arrest without violence. The sixth grader was also suspended for three days. A school district spokeswoman said students do not have to participate in the Pledge of Allegiance and children can opt out with written permission, but the substitute teacher wasn't aware of this. It is understood the substitute will no longer work at any of the district's schools. These SOBs will get it sooner or later
