Mehserle trial moved out of Alameda County
The trial of killer BART cop Johannes Mehserle is being moved out of Alameda County. Apparently, he deserves to be tried in a lily-white suburb like Simi Valley. For those that don’t know, and it’s really a shame if you don’t know, please watch this video and see for yourself that an unarmed man was shot in the back while lying face down on the ground with another officer’s knee on the back of his head.
There are no other issues or extenuating circumstances to consider. A man is dead. He was unarmed and pleading for his life when he was shot in the back while lying face down on the ground with another officer’s knee on the back of his head.
Maybe you can argue that Mehserle didn't intend to murder Oscar Grant, but a man whose gross incompetence caused a little girl to lose her father SHOULD NOT BE ENTITLED TO SPECIAL TREATMENT.
