Well, this is disheartening.  According to The Houston Chronicle,

The former Texas trooper who stopped Sandra Bland on a Waller County roadside in July 2015 has had the perjury charge against him dismissed.

Bland was found dead in her cell three days after being booked at the county jail, igniting a national protest over police handling of African-Americans.

Chip Lewis, the attorney for Brian Encinia, released court documents Wednesday showing that the criminal charge against Encinia was dismissed by state District Judge Albert McCaig in Waller County.

Prosecutors asked for the dismissal, he said. Encinia will not be able to work as a licensed peace officer in Texas, according to the documents.

“Brian and his family appreciate the thoughtful review by the prosecutors,” Lewis said in the statement. “Dismissal was the right thing to do. The Encinias will remain forever grateful to their family, friends and members of the law enforcement community for all their support.”

The dismissal was “the right thing to do”?!  Are you kidding me?!?!?  The man LIED and got away with it.
