The Texas Department of Public Safety has just released what is said to be a complete and unedited police dashcam video recording of the arrest of Sandra Bland. An altercation begins around 9 minutes in.
As Rob Beschizza wrote earlier today, her death at the hands of a Texas police officer is now being investigated as a murder.

The police department released surveillance video, with multiple cuts, apparently showing officers discovering Bland's body and and EMS personnel removing it from her cell.
For two decades, the Phoenix police union has had a secret deal with the police department that required that the disciplinary records of cops would be "purged," so that no one, not even their supervisors, would be able to retrieve them.
