American Indian Movement activist Clyde Bellecourt said he wasn't surprised that a Minneapolis, Minnesota, police union official was denying claims of police brutality.

Bellecourt and other community leaders raised the allegations on Wednesday. They cited witness accounts of a beating of an Indian man and woman.

Bellecourt and others are planning a rally next Thursday against police brutality.
