Justice For Oscar Grant!!!…Murdered By Former B.A.R.T. Officer,Hearing Protested Today In L.A.

Former BART police officer Johannes Mehserle was given $3 million bail after being charged with murder in the shooting death of Oscar Grant on New Year’s Day 2009, at the Fruitvale BART station in Oakland, Calif.

The footage above was taken at a protest at the indictment of the former officer last year,January 2009, in Oakland, California.

The defense was able to get a change of venue, so the trial will be held here in Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Times reports that…More than 100 protesters demanding justice for a Bay Area man shot to death by a BART police officer on New Year’s Day last year converged on a downtown Los Angeles courthouse today for the first proceedings since the racially charged case was moved here from Alameda County.

Johannes Mehserle, who resigned from the Bay Area Rapid Transit police force a week after the shooting he admits to but contends was unintentional, will stand trial for murder before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Robert J. Perry in May, the judge said at his pretrial hearing.


Oscar Grant  was killed by a BART police officer struggling to handcuff the 22-year-old man,when he  stood up over the facedown Hayward resident and fired a single shot into his back while a handful of officers watched.

The video I screened looks like a man was shot in the back, for no reason at all.

It is the recording of a murder of one of our children,…and his death will be avenged ,for now, in court.


There will be no peace!!!!
