Don Lemon: We Shouldn’t ‘Bow to the Conspiracy Theorists’ on Sandra Bland

don lemonCNN’s Don Lemon said today it does no one any good to keep listening to “conspiracy theorists” when it comes to Sandra Bland‘s death.

Plenty of people upset at Bland’s death in jail have raised questions about whether she actually killed herself in prison and some have even questioned whether she was dead when she got to the jail.

Lemon said late this afternoon that there’s really nothing to indicate that Bland didn’t kill herself, and while he understands the call for transparency, “I almost wish that we would not bow to the conspiracy theorists, because they we add more fuel to the flame.”

Sunny Hostin pushed back and told Lemon it’s way too early to say “all is said and done,” but Lemon insisted that based on all the evidence, “if you logically follow it, you see what happens.”
