Add comment on:Demand Justice from BART April 8th : TAKE ACTION WITH US
Oakland for Justice
Tony Pirone physically and verbally abused Oscar Grant and his friends, then knelt on Oscar's neck, pressing him into the BART platform as fellow BART Cop, Johannes Mehserle shot him in the back. Pirone repeated the words "BITCH ASS NI@@ER" at least twice before the fatal shot was fired. These facts were caught on videotape and have been known to BART for over a year, yet Pirone has not been fired, charged, or even disciplined for his participation in the murder of Oscar Grant. In fact, he's been on full paid leave for over a year now.
We need to step up and do something about this. On April 8th, join us as we occupy the Embarcadero BART station to demand that Tony Pirone be fired and charged — and that BART police be disbanded. Meet ON THE BART PLATFORM at 3:30 PM sharp!
