The Chicago Tribune reports that the Rev. Jesse Jackson condemned Darrin Hanna's treatment in custody and planned a protest march Saturday dubbed the "10,000 Man March."

Hanna died Nov. 13, a week after officers punched and tackled him and used a stun gun during his arrest. His death sparked protests and led to the retirement of the North Chicago police chief.
