ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -
Anchorage's Polynesian community is planning a rally to bring attention to two fatal police shootings. The Anchorage Daily News says the rally is planned for Saturday. Organizers say the rally is aimed at coming up with better police protocols for shooting to disarm versus shooting to kill. Police last month shot and killed a 26-year-old Anchorage man who was wielding a broken broom handle. On Sunday, officers shot a 59-year-old man at his Anchorage home
after they say he pointed a BB gun replica of a Smith & Wesson pistol at them.
