Sandra Bland Was Arrested Because She Failed the Attitude Test

ATTN

This week protests were held in front of the Waller County Jail in Waller County, Texas, where Sandra Bland was found dead last month after being arrested during a routine traffic stop. Bland was found hanged in her jail cell three days after she was arrested.

..

After dashcam video of Sandra Blands arrest was released, ATTN: asked criminal defense attorney John Hamasaki for help understanding what it showed. Walking through the video, Mr. Hamasaki gave us his analysis of the situation.

..

When discussing Blands arrest, Mr. Hamasaki brought up the term "attitude test." The quote is below:

..

"Then the question becomes, what happened there? What happened is, theres a term we hear in the criminal law field-- 'somebody failed the attitude test.' And when somebody fails the attitude test, things escalate. Again, there is no 'attitude test' thats permissible as a basis for police encounters, meaning police officers dont get to harass you because you have a bad attitude, or you dont show them the proper deference."

..

We decided to dig further into this concept, and how it relates to the conversation surrounding policing in America, in a follow-up interview with Mr. Hamasaki.

Questions Discussed in this Interview:

ATTN: How is how is the term attitude test used? How is it used in the criminal justice field?

ATTN: Where does the attitude test come from?

ATTN: So the punishments might look different, but they happen for the same or similar reasons?

ATTN: Because some people have to talk to cops in a certain way?

ATTN: So, it seems, privilege has a lot to do with the way certain people are allowed to interact with the police.

ATTN: So obviously criminal defense attorneys are familiar with the term the attitude test, but what about others? Do cops think that they perform the attitude test? Do they know the term?

ATTN: Does the use of video come into play here?
