Mourners gather for Sandra Bland's funeral

Mourners gathered Saturday in Lisle, Illinois, to commemorate the life of Sandra Bland, a black woman who died in jail in Texas on July 13. Bland was pulled over by a state trooper July 10 allegedly for changing lanes without signaling. Video shows an escalating confrontation where the trooper pulled out a stun gun and said, "I will light you up."

"We are not celebrating a martyr or victim," the church pastor said according to the Chicago Sun-Times. "We are celebrating a hero."
