Following the news of Encinia’s perjury indictment, the Texas Department of Public Safety announces that they will be terminating the Trooper. In fact, they would “begin termination proceedings” immediately.

Since the extreme pressure on officials to terminate Encinia, he has been on administrative leave.


While a grand jury has decided not to indict jailers connected to the death of Sandra Bland, a Waller County grand jury has decided to indict the Texas Trooper that started the tumbleweed effect, Brian T. Encinia. Prosecutor, Phoebe Smith, revealed that he has been indicted on a Class A misdemeanor of perjury.

The penalties of such a misdemeanor; up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine. Easy.

According to the special prosecutors, the charge took place because of statement he made about something he did during the arrest. The “grand jury didn’t believe that statement was truthful.” Easy.

“Officer Encinia should not get off, “ said Jinaki Muhammad of Houston, national vice-co-chair of women’s affairs for the National Black United Front. “He escalated the situation.”

This is like a slap in the face. It takes something as simple as ‘not believing a statement’ to indict someone, but the actions that were clear as daylight on a dash-cam gets nothing? Is this, or is this not justice? Is a Class A misdemeanor type justice better than none at all? Let us know in the comments down bottom.
