From the Washington Post:
“An ordained pastor with the United Methodist Church has been keeping a daily vigil outside the Waller County Sheriff’s Office and County Jail, where Sandra Bland died under disputed circumstances last month. On Monday, Waller County Sheriff Glenn Smith let pastor Hannah Bonner know how he feels about her vigil by telling the pastor that she should ‘go back to the church of Satan that you run.’
Bonner recorded the Monday-afternoon exchange, along with a later conversation with the sheriff.”
As a friend pointed out, “If you’re perfectly willing to say that, unprovoked, to a white woman on camera,” that says something about the kind of treatment Sandra Bland faced from his department.
