On January 1st 2009 Officer Johannes Mehserle shot Oscar Grant in the back after he was already handcuffed and on the ground. Today they announced that officer Mehserle was guilty of "involuntary manslaughter, not murder.

After hours of peaceful protesting the energy and frustration of the crowd became too intense to express in words. In this video you can see some windows being smashed and people looting a Foot Locker.

This is a rough cut. More video to come.

for accuracy, oscar grant was restrained, not handcuffed, when he was shot. he was only cuffed afterward.

and please do be mindful not to implicate people appearing in the video.
