Black residents in Marin County complain about police abuse

MARIN CITY, Calif. Black residents in Marin County claim that they're unfairly targeted by authorities. They say that police routinely stop, handcuff and manhandle blacks to train young officers.

But a spokesman for the Marin County Sheriff's Department denies claims that deputies target minorities. He says Marin City is used as a training area for new deputies because it has the most activity and calls for service.
