Alabama’s removal of the Confederate battle flag did nothing to save the lives of Anthony Ware or Kindra Darnell Chapman. Ware died suspiciously in police custody after being pepper sprayed and arrested. Some of the Tuscaloosa officers were wearing body cameras, but they failed to capture significant moments of Ware’s detainment. Chapman, 18, was arrested for taking a cellphone. She reportedly hung herself within hours of being booked. Chapman’s death was simultaneous with the similarly reported death of Sandra Bland. Texas officers placed her in greater confinement, where Bland reported concerns for her safety and officer abuse. Shortly there after, she is alleged to have hung herself. One of the involved officers, Sheriff Glenn Smith, was previously fired from a police department amid accusations of Racism. President Barack Obama became the first sitting president to visit a federal prison; at an NAACP convention this week, he reminded everyone that, “African Americans are more likely to be arrested. They are more likely to be sentenced to more time for the same crime… [and] around one in nine African American kids has a parent in prison.” The evening before his visit, he was greeted by a gang of White hoodlums brandishing Confederate flags.
