Dozens protest outside Katy home of state trooper (who pulled over Sandra Bland)

Source: Houston Chronicle

Gesturing with his arms in the heat, Patrik Bernard told deputies in front of him that he felt compelled to leave his house and protest, acknowledging that as a citizen, doing so might cost him his job.

"I don't care," said the 42-year-old insurance agent. "Yeah, it's the most dangerous thing to do, to protest. I'm not protesting against you. I'm protesting against the action of a cowardly officer."

Bernard was among the people in Katy Sunday to attend a rally organized by activist Quanell X in front of what they believed to be the residence of Brian Encinia, the Texas Department of Public State trooper who pulled over Sandra Bland in Waller County on July 10.

"Had this police officer's behavior had not been what it was, and many of us believe his behavior was illegal, this sister perhaps today would still be alive," said Quanell X, speaking outside a restaurant on Southmore Boulevard. "So he is complicit in the murder of sister Sandra Bland, and that's why we're going to his house. And many have said, 'well why go to his house?' Because these devils have been coming to the black community, raiding and destroying black children and black families for decades. So now it's time for us to let them know that when you murder our kids in cold blood, we will also come to your neighborhood and let you know: hands off of our children, hands off of our women."
