COLLEGE TOUR-NATIVE AMERICANS
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An attorney for two Native American brothers pulled from a Colorado State University tour earlier this year asked the school for policy changes, saying Wednesday that campus officers violated the teens’ constitutional rights by stopping them and patting them down without any suspicion of a crime. A letter from American Civil Liberties Union attorney Sarah Hinger demands the university revisit its campus police policies and training to avoid another “humiliating” situation similar to the April 30 encounter.
