Jordan One Year Later: What's Different, What's the Same

A City Pages Roundtable

June 6, 2003: Police launch an investigation into the alleged mistreatment of Titilayo Bediako's 14-year-old son on the city's north side. The case gains attention because Bediako's sister, Kinshasha Kambui, works in Mayor Rybak's office. The boy's grandfather is Matthew Little, a local civil-rights icon who was the longtime president of the local chapter of the NAACP. The family eventually files suit against the city.

June 9, 2003: Duy Ngo, the undercover cop who was shot by one of his own in February, sues the city and Charlie Storlie, the officer who shot him.

July 10, 2003: Minneapolis cab driver Ahmed Ahmed is found shot to death in his cab in the 1100 block of Penn Avenue North.

July 27, 2003: Three people are shot and wounded on a Sunday afternoon in the Jordan neighborhood after multiple shots are fired in the 2600 block of Humboldt Avenue North.

July 29, 2003: 19-month-old Deasha Hazley is shot through the living room window of her family's home; she remains critically wounded. Sensing a Tyesha Edwards-like crisis, council member Samuels and Mayor Rybak convince Governor Tim Pawlenty three days later to allow 12 state troopers and helicopters to provide additional patrol support.
