Town Hall Reports from Inside Mehserle Hearing & Orloff Recall, Oakland, 5/30/09: audio
At this week's Town Hall for Justice for Oscar Grant, Minister Keith Muhammad, Reverend Ramona Tascoe, and Oscar Grant's uncle Cephus Johnson all offer direct reports from inside the court room during Johannes Mehserle's ongoing preliminary hearing in his trial for the murder of Oscar Grant. They point out that the BART police involved in the murder of Oscar Grant have been exposed repeatedly by the prosecutor as they tell lie after lie in the court room and yet the corporate media has failed to mention anything about these developments.

She starts by noting the racial profiling that was done by a paranoid "citizen cop" Dennis Zafiratos, who initially set off the chain of events of that night by calling the BART train operator to report an exaggerated disturbance.
Minister Keith reads the recently posted public notice that appeared in Alameda county newspapers to announce the intent to recall District Attorney Tom Orloff. It was the next official step after having already filed twenty initial recall petition signatures with the county.
Not surprisingly, every police chief in Alameda and other law enforcement officials have already announced support for DA Orloff in fighting the recall effort.
Surprisingly, two local NAACP chapters, including the Oakland NAACP, have listed their support for Tom Orloff. Apparently, local NAACP president George Holland even sat with the Mehserle family at the preliminary hearing.
If you do not believe the NAACP should be supporting Orloff, Minister Keith encourages you to contact Oakland NAACP president George Holland at georgehollandattorney [at] yahoo.com.
