Oscar Grant's best friend murdered

"Why do African American youth end up dead during pending federal lawsuits that allege excessive police force?"
-SF Bay View

Two and a half years after his best friend was murdered right in front of his eyes, and with a $5 million federal lawsuit (related to police misconduct on that same fateful New Year's morning in 2009) pending, 25 year-old Johntue Caldwell was shot dead in his car at a gas station in broad daylight on Friday.
Not surprisingly, the assassin has neither been located nor identified.
In all honesty, only the cops are suspected.
Johntue leaves behind two young sons.
