A year after the police killing of a young black man in Ferguson, Missouri, and the unrest it provoked, the death of a 28-year-old black woman in a Texas jail on July 13 has become the focus of national concerns about alleged police misconduct. The mother of the late Sandra Bland filed a lawsuit in Houston this week in connection with her death. VOA's Greg Flakus reports.
