It’s about time!

The BART police officer who fatally shot an unarmed man on an Oakland train platform and then refused to explain his actions to investigators was arrested Tuesday in Nevada on suspicion of murder, authorities said.

Johannes Mehserle, 27, was arrested in the New Year’s Day shooting of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old supermarket worker from Hayward who was lying facedown after being pulled off a BART train by police investigating a fight. An Alameda County judge signed an arrest warrant alleging murder, and Mehserle surrendered without incident, authorities said.

The shooting, which was recorded by passengers in videos widely circulated on the Internet and television, prompted public outrage, and some viewers said that the shooting appeared to be an execution. Continue Reading….

  1. History tells us he will not be convicted.

    There are too many others cases that have been caught on tape and the murdering police have NOT been convicted.

    It will be a first, we shall see.

  2. i want him to pay for that………… ( i’m putting it out there)
    but my instincts and life training suggests that we are seen as nothing but annoyances….
    rodents!!!
    if we lived in a world that saw all its inhabitants as important member’s of the human race we would maybe have something to look forward to .. that would resemble justice… BUT I DONT SEE IT COMING!!

  3. I know your innocent until proven guilty..but what he did was on video 4 any1 to see …He killed an innocent human bein point blank ..if there wasn’t no video this would of been swept under the rug ..throw this pig in jail or give him the death penalty that’s ,that

  4. He needs to be prosecuted 2 the fullest extent. i dont care wether oscar was white,black,brown,yellow,etc. GRANT’s FAMILY deserves justice, as far as I can see from the footage this is a open shut case. No ifs or buts about it. If he gets off this will clearly show police are untouchable beyond belief………..

  5. the video speaks for itself and this killer needs to be brought to justice. hopefully the justice system will do the right thing. we will see…

  6. He now chooses to take the fifth amendment, if it was a black shooting a white, they would have spoken on his behalf, i mean they would have told the story be4 the black had a chance to say it. I am waiting to see what happens or not happen.

  7. Oh, now they suspect him of ‘murder’ one of the worst crimes so that they can justify shooting him?
