Pics from the protest in Seattle in solidarity with the people of Oakland, CA. Johannes Mehserle was given a SLAP ON THE WRIST! No Justice, No Peace! We Are ALL Oscar Grant!

Concerned community members from Seattle and Olympia took to the streets of Seattle, WA outraged over the verdict of "involuntary manslaughter" in the murder of Oscar Grant by Oakland Police officer Johannes Mehserle.

Many of you may be familiar of the case of the black teenager who was punched by a seattle officer for jaywalking. If not, a little background: http://www.seattlepi.com/local/421842_cop16.html

This comes on the heels of another video taped outrage at the hands of an SPD officer, this time with a Mexican "suspect":

From another angle. Isn't that better? And nobody got hurt or went to jail.
