Oscar Grant took photo of Mehserle pointing taser at him before Mehserle drew gun and shot him in the back

In the court hearing today regarding defense attorney Michael Rains' motion to exclude Oscar Grant's fiancé Sophina Mesa from testifying about Oscar Grant's fear of tasers, it was discussed that Oscar Grant took a photo with his sister's mobile phone of Johannes Mehserle' pointing a taser at him. That photo taken by Oscar Grant on Chantay Moore's mobile phone will be introduced as evidence in the trial. Mehserle's taser confusion defense looks a lot less credible if during the two minutes he was on the platform he had pulled out his actual taser, pointed it at Oscar Grant, and put it back in its holster before he then drew his gun and shot Oscar Grant in the back.
