Prairie View Students Capture City Council Seats

Prairie View A&M students haven’t forgotten Sandra Bland, the 28-year-old alumna of their school who was found hanged in a Prairie View jail cell after state police arrested her in a minor traffic stop. Neither have they forgotten when a local officer Tasered Jonathan Miller, the youngest member of Prairie View’s City Council and alumni of their school, for “suspicious activity.”

That was 2015. By 2016, Donald Trump—who ran on a campaign that promised to give more power to the police—was president.
