Re: “Will the People Get a Fair Trial?

I have seen the video, of the shooting of Oscar Grant, a number of times,..& I have determined, from what I have seen, that Officer Mehserle, had NO good reason, to shoot Mr grant, with EITHER a gun, or a taser,..Mr Grant, was face down, on the floor, & was being "controlled'" by 2 officers,..Officer Mehserle being 1 of those 2 cops,..From what I see on the video, officer Mehserle,, has NO ligitiment, excuse, for shooting Mr Grant,..even with a taser, which officer Mehserle claims, was his "intent", or his gun..That having been said, there is no PROOF, that Officer Mehserle, INTENDED to use his handgun, & NOT his taser, as per his claimed intent,..Accordingly,.. I fail to see how any "impartial' jury person could vote to sustain a charge of "Muder' against Officer Mehserle, there is NO evidence, as to Mehserle's ,..INTENT,..That is to say, that there is NO, evidence, with regards to what "exactly", was going on in Mehserle's head, at the time,..Certainly, a charge of "negligant" homicide, is justified, as clearly, it is the RESPONSIBILITY, of any police officer to use his weaponry, in a responsible manner, which, clearly Officer Mehserle failed to do in this case,..& clearly, it being that even the use of a taser was not justified, Officer Mehserle, was guilty of "use of excessive force" & "police brutality", but the evidence for a "murder" conviction is just not there,..Now as to moving the trial out of Alemeda County,..I think that it is fair to say,..that the O.J. Simpson trial taught us, that "Black", jurys, tend to vote their "Blackness", rather than vote the "evidence",, in trials where "race" is an issue.. & I call the readers attention to the widespread vandalism, committed by "Blacks", at the time of this incident,..Such random acts of mindless vandalism, committed, by "Blacks, against, persons, who had NOTHING to do with the shooting of Mr Grant, gives us an insite, into the collective "Black mindset..This tendency, of the "Black" race to revert to such primitive "tribalism", tends to support my position, that, in the interest of justice, the number of "Blacks", to sit on this jury, should be kept to an absolute minimum,..Indeed,..IF the "Racial" aspect of this case were turned around, & Mehserle were "Black" & Grant were "White",..Then I doubt that any charges would have ever been filed, in the first place,..but IF charges had been filed then the Black citizenery, would still be rioting,..but, rioting at the "injustice being done to this fine "Black" cop,...So, In say YES to the moving of the trial to someplace that is nowhere near to Oakland, either in terms of miles,..or in terms of racial makeup,..

Re: “BART Cop Hurled N-Word at Oscar Grant

Well,..O.K.,..So what, if Pirone called Grant a "Bitch ass nigger"? That claim , even if true, does Not prove that Officer Mehserle, "INTENDED", to shoot Mr. Grant, with his firearm,..This whole trial, is about what Merserle, INTENDED to do, whatever other officers may have said, or done, should not & cannot, be, rightly, held against Mehserle,..
