In this week's Town Hall for Justice for Oscar Grant, in addition to following up on the recent involuntary manslaughter conviction of Johannes Mehserle, speakers and attendees grapple with yet another police murder. This time it was the killing of Fred Collins, shot to death near the Fruitvale BART station by five police officers, two from BART and three from OPD, just hours before the Town Hall.
