Outside the Courthouse and surrounding areas
calling for Justice for "Oscar Grant" .
You ask who is Oscar Grant: This is who he is...
The BART Police shooting of Oscar Grant was a fatal
shooting in Oakland, California, United States, in
the early morning hours of New Year's Day 2009.
Responding to reports of a fight on a crowded Bay Area
Rapid Transit (BART) train returning from San Francisco,
BART Police officers detained Grant and several other
passengers on the platform at the Fruitvale BART Station.
Officer Johannes Mehserle and another officer were
restraining Grant, who was prostrate but resisting arrest.
Officer Mehserle stood, drew his gun and shot Grant once
in the back. Grant turned out to be unarmed.Grant was face
down on the ground Handcuffed.
NOTE: You can see the footage in the video above.
Grant was pronounced dead the next morning at Highland
Hospital in Oakland.
The events were captured on multiple digital and cell
phone cameras. The footage was disseminated to media
outlets and to various websites, where it was watched
hundreds of thousands of times.
The following days saw both peaceful and violent protests.
Oakland civil rights attorney John Burris filed a $25
million wrongful death claim against BART on behalf of
Grant's family .
The trial has been moved to LA Superior Courts right down
the hall from the Michael Jackson/Murray hearings...and the
judge is non other then Judge Perry who was the judge in
letting the Rampart Scandel Slip through his hands...
