Wens. January 1st marks five years since Oscar Juliuss Grant was murdered on a subway platform by [ex-pig] Johannes Mehserle.
I won't call this an "anniversary" since anniversaries are typically things to celebrate. It is still a fucking travesty, how ever one looks at it.

Five years ago today, on Thursday January 1st 2009, Oscar Juliuss Grant III was murdered by ex-BART pig Johannes Mehserle in Oakland, CA.
