FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2003 A larger than expected crowd marched on city hall in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to protest police brutality against American Indians. Several hundred were reported to have walked for two miles from a housing complex with a large Indian population. They met with Mayor R.T. Rybak and police officials and wanted to get an update on the city's investigation into allegations that two police officers beat an Indian man, possibly urinating on him, and leaving him and an Indian woman out in the freezing cold.
