    Sheriff taunts clergy keeping vigil at jail where Sandra Bland died: ‘Go back to the church of Satan’

    An United Method Church pastor in Texas said on Monday that the Waller County sheriff told her to “go back to the church of Satan” while she was keeping vigil outside the jail where Sandra Bland died.

    Hannah Adair Bonner explained on her Twitter feed that she went to the Waller County Jail on Monday just like she had for 27 days since Bland’s death. While she was sitting outside the jail, Sheriff R. Glenn Smith decided to confront her.

    Cell phone video uploaded by Bonner shows Smith walking by and asking if she needs his business card, presumably so he can be correctly identified.

    “Why don’t you go back to the church of Satan that you run?” Smith asks as he walks into the jail. Bonner later called on activists to contact Smith’s office for an apology.

    “Sheriff then went to my car, took pics of license plate and my face and threatened he is going to do something with them,” she noted.

    Didn't read the story at the provided link, but why is this "pastor" not spending the last 27 days tending to her "flock". If the Sheriff really confronted her there are other terms for her activities which might have been more appropriate.
