Mehserle Sentencing Friday


CALIFORNIA – BART police officer, Johannes Mehserle, shot and killed unarmed Oscar Grant in January of 2009 while Grant was laying on his stomach at the Fruitvale train station in Oakland. Mehserle was charged with involuntary manslaughter on July 8, 2010, followed by thousands in the streets and rioting that evening in protest of the lax charge. Mehserle is to be sentenced this Friday in Los Angeles.

In Oakland, organizers from the Oakland General Assembly will be holding a ‘Gathering in Honor of Oscar Grant’ starting at 2pm in Frank Ogawa Plaza (14th and Broadway).
