Remove Confederate Flag License Plate
An Alabama Judge wants the state to discontinue its Confederate flag license plate. Montgomery Probate Judge Steven Reed announced he is sending a formal request to Governor Robert Bentley to remove the flag from any state-issued license plate. Reed says while he does not believe symbols change hearts and minds. He thinks symbols are a start and the state should be aware of what they mean. Alabama is one of some 10 states that offers Sons of Confederate Veterans license plates. The tag is for the Sons of the Confederate Veterans organization. Reed is asking for the plate to be discontinued until the organization can redesign it.
