Add comment on:Notes from the Mehserle Trial's "Change of Venue" Hearing, Day One, 10/6/09
Rains’ brief argues that Oakland jurors will not be fair and impartial throughout the criminal trial given the influence of corporate and independent media coverage of the criminal trial, as well as the threat and influence of what Rains’ suggests are “enraged” Oakland resident protests directed at the issue of police brutality and the unjust murder of poor, Oakland residents. We the people reject any attempt by Rains’ to mischaracterize the moral conscience of informed and democratically engaged Oakland residents who want a safer and healthier city in which all peoples can be free of unjust trauma, violence, and dehumanization by law enforcement.
