Add comment on:Mehserle Release Press Conference - We Will Not Shut Up, We Will Not Forget, 6/1/11: video, audio, photos
A press conference was held on June 1st to address the planned community response to the impending release from jail of Johannes Mehserle. Mehserle was convicted of involuntary manslaughter -- rather than murder as he was originally charged -- for killing Oscar Grant by shooting him in the back in front of hundreds of witnesses on January 1st, 2009. Mehserle is expected to be released after serving less than one year of a two-year sentence. The date of Mehserle's release is being kept from the public. Regardless of the exact date, a press conference and rally have been called for the Fruitvale BART station at 3pm on the day of Mehserle's release, to be followed directly by a rally at 5pm at 14th and Broadway in Oakland.
