Officer Richard Jouppi

A group of Native Americans, and other supporters, rallied outside City Hall in Duluth to protest an alleged officer assault. The rally started with several Native American traditions, and was followed by several speeches criticizing the Duluth Police Department.

The protest came after Officer Richard Jouppi was accused of assaulting a Native American man in a wheelchair at the Duluth Detox Center last month. Jouppi faces two misdemeanor charges for disorderly conduct and fifth degree assault, but people at the rally believed Jouppi deserves a harsher punishment.
