The videotaped police murder of Oscar Grant is still on the minds of many in the Bay Area who watched it on television New Year’s night and for two weeks after. Ten months later, a date of Oct. 6 has been set for Johannes Mehserle, the police trigger-man, to plead his case on why his defense team thinks that they need a change of venue for his murder trial.

Although Mehserle is the only one of the five police murderers there that night who has been charged with anything, his defense had been trying to get the charges dropped to no avail. The change of venue hearing is on Tuesday at the Alameda County Courthouse, 1225 Fallon St., in Oakland. The press conference starts at 11:30 a.m. and the hearing begins at 1 p.m. We hope to see as many people as possible there.
