Francsico Da Costa
As many as five thousands plus gather outside Oakland's City Hall to protest the cold blooded shooting by a Bart Police Officer Johannes Mehserle of a 22 year old Oscar Grant. Many leaders from all over the Bay Area were present - including Mayor Ron Dellums of Oakland - who spoke in generalities. Oakland Police came out in force but the march that followed the speech making - was very peaceful. The thousands that gathered on this historic day - sent a clear message to Law Enforcement - that shooting and killing innocent people is wrong. But, more so killing innocent Blacks will not be tolerated - as was done in the case of Oscar Grant a 22 year old father from Hayward.
