On January 30th, bail for BART police officer Johannes Mehserle was set at $3 million, even though he is considered a flight risk, which means that he only had to come up with $300,000 to be released. When members of the community asked in advance for an overflow room so that citizens of the community could be informed on the court proceedings, Alameda County refused the request. In other words, what the officials of Alameda County and Oakland in particular are saying is: "We don't care about the opinions of the community" and "What are you going to do about it?" So what we need is massive numbers of people to turn out. Remember this is our city, and these police are paid by our tax dollars. There is nothing more that Oakland would love than for us to give up and quit, but if you've been at the rallies than you know that many individuals whose family members have been slain by police officers, have been empowered to bring out their stories and reveal the numerous "Oscar Grants." Come out and let your voice be heard, because silence is consent!
