On July 13, a young 28-year old woman was found hanging from a noose made from a plastic bag (allegedly) in her cell at the Waller County Jail in Texas, where she was incarcerated after allegedly assaulting an officer during a July 10 traffic stop. Her death is being investigated as a murder, though authorities have said that she appeared to have hanged herself.
Who was this young woman, who was like so many young adults who have spoken openly of racial and police injustices? … Her name is Sandra Bland.
Here we find ourselves again, addressing the loss of a life of another young black person under suspicious circumstances while in the custody of law enforcement, and Hot Topics Talk Radio will be addressing the inconsistencies in the accounts of the death of Sandra Bland.
Join us on Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at 8:00pm PST/11:00pm EST.

TONIGHT 9P we discuss Sandra Bland, an African- American woman who was found hanged in a jail cell in Wallrer County, Texas, on July 13, 2015. Her death was classified as a suicide by police and the county coroner, and was followed by protests against her arrest, disputing the cause of death and alleging racial violence against her. Bland was 28 years old when she died. The issue of police violence is a serious issue in America and must remain a major topic of discussion.
Bland had been pulled over for a minor traffic violation on July 10 by state trooper Brian Encinia. He arrested her following an escalating conflict, during which he alleged that she had assaulted him and which was recorded by his dashcam and by a bystander's cell phone. The officer was placed on administrative duty for failing to follow proper traffic stop procedures, as the release of the dashcam video supports the claim that normal procedures were not followed by the arresting officer.
On July 16 Texas authorities and the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that they had begun a joint investigation into Bland's death. Waller County district attorney's office said that her death would be investigated as a possible murder. A motion-activated camera outside her cell recorded no movement in the hallway for 90 minutes before founding her dead.

On April 8th, 1994, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain was found dead of a gunshot wound sustained on April 5th, 1994, in his Seattle home. Many, including the Seattle Police Department, believe this gunshot wound was self-inflicted. Some do not. Renknowned Forensic Astrologer Linda Crystal investigates the case, bringing in her expertise of astrology, police investigations and psychic mediumship.
Did Kurt commit suicide or was he in fact murdered? What do the planets and univeral energies of that time say about the man that inspired so many?

Controversy and speculation surround the events of Sandra Bland. The 28 year old Chicago woman who committed suicide in a Waller County (Texas) jail. Bland was stopped by state trooper, Brian Encinia for failure to signal before changing lanes. At some point a scuffle ensued, Bland kicked the officer and he arrested her for assault. Three days later Bland was found dead in her jail cell of an apparent suicide.
Join Host, Tracy L. Bell at 6:30 p.m. on "Conversations Of A Sistah" as I address this question and talk about the comparison between Bland's suicide and that of another black woman in the same cell the day before.
Destruction combined with murder can overwhelm even the strongest of Christians. The Paris attacks from ISIS and resent storms in the Northwest reminds us we must be continually vigilant against the wilds of the enemy. Tonights information from Julie uncovers the plot in Paris and future potentials exposed.

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. Hashtags are made, inspiring pictures are shared, and hope is strong. On this day, we come together as a society and recognize that suicide is a serious issue.
On a day that my efforts are especially recognized, I still know the suicide I’m trying hardest to prevent is my own.
Much like an alcoholic, I still identify myself as someone with a problem. I still admit I’m at risk for suicidal behavior. I haven’t attempted suicide in nearly a decade. I haven’t felt the urge to end my life in a few years. I’ve quickly addressed and pushed through my spurts of depression. Yet, I recognize that deep in my psyche, there’s a risk.
I’ve recently become anxious about this risk as I look towards the future. I hope to graduate from American University in May. People ask me, “What will you do when you graduate” or “do you have a job lined up?” Even worse, they tell me, “I know you’ll do great things.”
This is tough to hear because it sounds a lot like the commentary I received as I exited the Marine Corps. I felt like I was set up for success. I had money in the bank, I had an impressive resume, and I had an plan of what I wanted to do. Or, so I thought. Like many veterans, I fell flat on my face.
Almost a year after I left the military I had lost my savings, only found jobs I didn’t like, and naturally became depressed. The year following that found me in debt, leaving a mutually disappointing relationship, and practically homeless.
I was in a very dark place...

The death of Elliott Smith is fraught with questions, and few answers. Tonight Linda Crystal, Forensic Astrologer and medium takes a look at Elliot's astro chart and tries to discover what exactly went on on the day of his death and the circumstances involved in it, before and after. Linda is renowned for solving many missing persons cases as well as murder cases.
On October 21, 2003, Smith died from two stab wounds to the chest. The coroner's report called it "possible suicide versus homicide," leaving the mode of death officially unconfirmed. Smith had been arguing with his live-in girlfriend Jennifer Chiba and according to Chiba, she locked herself in the bathroom when she heard Smith scream, and emerged to find him with a knife in his chest. The report also noted Smith's reported longstanding narcotics habit (specifically, "heroin and crack") but that Chiba said he had been clean for a year.

The five stages of normal grief that were first proposed by Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross* in her 1969 book On Death and Dying are:
denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.
They are a part of the framework that makes up our learning to live with the one we lost.They are tools to help us frame and identify what we may be feeling. But they are not stops on some linear timeline in grief. Not everyone goes through all of them or in a prescribed order. Our hope is that with these stages comes the knowledge of grief ‘s terrain, making us better equipped to cope with life and loss.
At times, people in grief will often report more stages. Just remember your grief is an unique as you are.

?This week's episode of 1, 2, Many: Veteran Suicide features a Navy veteran that explains to us what it's like to respond to a suicide crisis. The images he describes are very graphic and his thoughts on being a "burden" may be considered insensitive, but I think his perspective and experience are worth sharing.
