Add comment on:CA Assembly Hearing on BART's Deeply Inept, Reckless, and Corrupt Police Force, 10/20/09: audio and PDFs
At the State Capital in Sacramento on October 20th, Assemblymember Tom Ammiano, chair of the Committee on Public Safety, held a hearing to restart the process of reigning in BART's dysfunctional police department from the state level. (Audio and PDFs from the hearing below.) Apparently intended to lay the groundwork for future hearings, the subject matter of the hearing was limited largely to a review of the Meyers Nave report on events surrounding the murder of Oscar Grant III on January 1st and the NOBLE report on BART's police department itself. Hearings on police oversight at BART, including discussions of both AB312 and AB1586, are expected to begin in January or February 2010. Through the end of this year, the more community pressure placed on BART and public safety committee members the better for those seeking justice for Oscar Grant.
