Add comment on:Killer of Oscar Grant on Trial
The murder trial of Johannes Mehserle, the now-ex-cop who shot Oscar Grant, has been forced by the actions of the people: those who took the video, and those who protested and rebelled. And the trial is moving very quickly. Great vigilance is needed. No Black people chosen to sit on the jury! After all five African-American people in the first group of 50 potential jurors were removed, the defense and prosecution agreed on a jury. As they exited court, people close to Oscar Grant expressed shock and outrage.
