“People’s Sheriff” David Clarke will walk through Sandra Bland’s traffic stop “through a cop’s eyes” in his Saturday podcast.
Bland hanged herself in her jail cell on July 13, three days after Texas State Trooper Brian Encinia arrested her for allegedly assaulting him during a traffic stop for a minor infraction.
Her death led to a major outcry in social media using the hashtag #IfIDieInPoliceCustody.
Encinia, 30, had been on the job for about a year when Bland’s arrest occurred.
The Blaze did not disclose the time that Clarke’s podcast would be aired Saturday — it can be found on TheBlaze Radio and on streaming website Stitcher — but Clarke stirred up some earnest conversations on Twitter from both sides of the issue.

@SheriffClarke How about through a civilians eyes too? — ☆Ray☆ (@Rayyymo) August 1, 2015
@Rayyymo I disagree. He’s a coward that won’t call out bad cops. He makes excuses for them and that furthers the bad behavior.
