Re: “Did BART Cops Detain Oscar Grant Without Cause?

It's not just "according to the Chron," it's according to the Meyers Nave report which you can find here, along with a thorough analysis: http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2009/08/18/18616548.php. It's also according to testimony in Mehserle's preliminary hearing -- the cops admitted in court that they would have just let Oscar Grant and his friends go if Oscar Grant had not been shot: http://www.indybay.org/oscargrant.
