Sandra Bland’s mother, Geneva Reed-Veal, appeared on NewsOne Now for an exclusive interview to discuss the perjury charge filed against Officer Brian Encinia and the Texas Department of Public Safety’s decision to fire the Texas State Trooper.

When asked what she thought about the recent developments involving Encinia, Reed-Veal said, “Where are the real charges?”

On Thursday’s edition of NewsOne Now, host Roland Martin decided to help set the record straight about Obama’s gun control executive orders.
