PROTESTERS

that day were the police"
Pliskow said the police were on a
mad chase to arrest everyone and any-
one. "One police person put a mock
gun on the defendent and pretended to
shoot;' Pliskow said.
Before the disruptions at Monday's
city council meeting, several con-
stituents stood up to speak about police
actions at the rally.
"1 really like living in Ann Arbor, I
even like the police department. But I
saw the police in what looked like full
combat gear and for me it was
absolutely clear that 'if you're here to
,cause trouble, we're gonna kick your
ass,' said John Hurley, one of the
speakers who appeared before the
board.
Audrey Jackson was not scheduled
to speak to the board but she did so
anyway, telling them they had no busi-
ness sitting behind closed doors and
making decisions that stab people in
the back.
"City Hall needs to get their act

cleaned up right now," Jackson said,
after insulting Mayor Ingrid Sheldon
with obscenities.
After Jackson's speech, the protest-
ers began chanting "drop the charges,"
and the council members retreated to a
conference room for what would be the
first of several recesses before the
meeting was finally cancelled because
of the loud chanting.
The meeting has been rescheduled
for 7:30 p.m. tonight.
City attorney Abigail Elias, who was
scheduled to speak to the protestors and
address some of their concerns later in
the meeting, said the city council does
not have the power to do anything about
the charges.
"We don't have the authority to drop
the charges - it has to go through the
courts,' Sheldon said. "I'm disappoint-
ed that this group of citizens can not
respect other citizens who are address-
ing the council today."
Sheldon said that honest concems
will be addressed in an honest way and
that officials are trying to answer ques-
tions as best they can.
Council members Tobi Hanna-

Davies and Pat Vereen Dixon had pro-
posed a resolution that would involve
an investigation into the police actions
at the rally, but Davies decided to table
it.
"I wanted us to look at concerns of
the citizens - police were in a really
hard position," Davies said. "It was
extremely distastful for them to do the
job they had to do"
Davies intended her proposed reso-
lution to look at what happened and
make sure that it doesn't happen again.
"I'm willing to bring it back in some
form in the next meeting or maybe the
one after that:' Davies said.
In the meantime, the protesters con-
tinued their demonstration outside the
city hall building.
"If the city council makes a state-
'ment saying they have no power to
get charges dropped, then city council
is effectively declaring itself impo-
tent and powerless," said Jodi
Masley, an NWROC member and RC
junior. "If they took a stand against
them (the police) there would be no
way the prosecutor could pursue
charges."

degree and a doctorate in physics from
the University in 1963 and 1966,
respectively.
Neal said he thinks a number of
issues will be extremely important to
the University community. He said he
will work to maintain initiatives
already in place. "It's a big agenda
made of bite-size pieces, which I hope
we can chew on," Neal said.
Neal said health care will require a
lot of attention. "We'll be dealing with
an entity where tens of millions of dol-
lars will be in question," he said.
Increasing undergraduate research
opportunities will be one focus of his
administration, he said. "We often hear
students don't have a chance -to have
substantive (research) experiences
with professors," he said. "We want to
be able to guarantee such an experi-
