March for Justice of Oscar Grant Protests Release of Mehserle

Video of the beginning of the march at Fruitvale BART station, Oakland, CA, June 12, 2011. Following a public press conference, people marched down International Boulevard to downtown, where a rally was held at the corner of Broadway and 14th Street.

Former BART Police Officer Johannes Mehserle was convicted of the killing of Oscar Grant, on January 1, 2009. He was sentenced to two years for “involuntary manslaughter.” Mehserle was released after serving less than half that time.

A strong community movement, with support from the Grant family, are calling for a civil prosecution of Mehserle by the U. S. Attorney General, as in the Rodney King case. They are also pressing for strong civilian review of police, and an end to illegal police killings and racial and youth profiling.

Mehserle is the first uniformed, on duty, police officer to ever be convicted of killing a civilian in the history of California.
