While the four other cops on the platform when Oscar Grant was murdered and his friends abused and harrassed are back on the force, BART has still not reinstated Pirone and Domenici, the worst two offenders besides Mehserle. Now, KTVU is reporting that is was leaked to them that the Meyers Nave report recommends firing the two. Of course, BART police chief Gee is being allowed to retire rather than be fired and he has said he disagrees with the report, so he may have no intention of following any of its recommendations.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- KTVU learned Tuesday that outside investigators have recommended that two BART police officers be fired for their part in the fatal New Year's Day shooting of Oscar Grant.

Legal analysts said that move could affect the trial of the former officer now charged with Grant’s murder.

A public report released just over a month ago packed a great deal of information into eight pages that condemned the way BART police handled the fatal New Year's Day incident.

But that scathing report was only the public version. BART paid Myers Nave $250,000 for an internal investigation that the transit agency is keeping private. KTVU Channel 2 reporter Rita Williams has learned that in the report, investigators recommended that BART fire two officers involved in the Grant incident: Tony Pirone and Marysol Domenici.
