Oscar Grant. The police are arresting people already, I can't help but
think that if they had taken Grant's slayer into custody, if only for
questioning, rather than giving him a paid leave some of this outrage
may have been avoided.
On the other hand, call me paranoid but I always have the nagging
feeling that rioting is exactly what the police wish to see happen
then, like Grant's slayer, they get to play with all their toys.
I saw an interesting piece in the Mercury News
minorities and the privileged citizens of the area.
Another blog called When I Write had a local feel with the piece,
“Only in Cali where we riot not rally” - [Oscar Grant Protest Turns Ugly]
In the meantime Johannes Mehserle the office who shot and killed Grant
has quit his job with BART and left apparently left without saying
anything to his bosses.
