GRITtv: Davey D: (No) Justice for Oscar Grant

8 years ago74 views



Former BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) police officer Johannes Mehserle, who shot 22-year-old Oscar Grant in the back while he was handcuffed, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter on July 8. Involuntary manslaughter, for a police officer killing an African-American man who was already in custody. Yet some were surprised that he was convicted of anything at all, given the history of police shootings of men of color. Davey D is a journalist, radio host, and activist in Oakland, and he joined us as we awaited the verdict to give us some thoughts on justice for Oscar Grant. Distributed by Tubemogul.
