At the time, Bland’s mother Geneva Reed-Veal slammed the lack of transparency on the part of prosecutors and other authorities, but ultimately indicated that much of the blame must be focused on the actions that Encinia took that day.

“I think she should have never been incarcerated,” Reed-Veal. “Period.”
