0

Native American Choctaw tribe activist Rexdale W. Henry, 53, died in jail in Neshoba County, Mississippi after being arrested for failure to pay a traffic fine. His death–which came a day after Sandra Bland’s death in a Texas jail–is sparking attention at the high rate of police involved killings of Native Americans that get next to no attention for the media. We look at the numbers of ethnic groups getting killed by police, and how Rexdale Henry is just the tip of the iceberg of minorities getting brought into jail for minor offenses and then dying in jail, in this Lip News with Elliot Hill and Mark Sovel.
