LA Coalition Demands Justice for Oscar Grant at Second Los Angeles Mehserle Hearing, 2/19/10: photos
At Johannes Mehserle's second pre-trial hearing in Los Angeles, the LA Coalition for Justice for Oscar Grant again demonstrated against racist police violence in front of the Los Angeles Superior Courthouse. Mehserle himself was rushed into and out of an underground parking garage in a black SUV with dark-tinted windows. Inside the court room, both of Mehserle's defense motions -- to reduce bail and to remove the Alameda DA's office from the case -- were denied by Judge Perry. After the hearing, family lawyer John Burris answered questions from the corporate media.
Audio from the outside the court house, John Burris' press conference, and LA Coalition statements afterward will be posted in the near future.

Two sheriff's deputies stood in the street to block traffic as the garage door opened so that the SUV could drive out of the parking garage without having to slow for oncoming cars on N Spring Street. This series of three photos was shot in just one or two seconds.
