When Mehserle is released…

According to California’s penal code, involuntary manslaughter is a nonviolent offense.  What’s more violent than shooting an unarmed individual in the back when someone else is pinning that person to the ground?  Fuck that.  It sounds like Johannese Mehserle will be released as early as the middle of next month after serving less than a year locked up.  We haven’t forgotten Oscar Grant.  On the day that this pig is released, people will be gathering in two locations:

  • 3 pm at the Fruitvale BART stop, the site of Grant’s murder
  • 5 pm at 14th & Broadway in downtown Oakland

We are still Oscar Grant!

This is how the justice system values the lives of young people of color?
