TUESDAY, MAY 6, 2003

Joy Desjarlais, a Native author in Saskatchewan, Canada, has written a book about a police brutality case.

"The Right to Remain Silent, A Night to Remember" is about Darrell Night, Desjarlais' nephew. Night came forward after two police officers in Saskatoon dropped him on the outskirts of town in the freezing cold.

The incident brought charges against the officers, who were convicted of unlawful confinement. They are serving an eight-month sentence.
