Oakland BART Officer Who Shot Pinned, Unarmed Man Is Arrested On The Lam


Last time we checked in on the aftermath of the New Year's day shooting in Oakland of the pinned, unarmed Oscar Grant by a BART police officer, the D.A. didn't even know when he might decide whether to press charges. Now, the officer in question, Johannes Mehserle, is apprehended in Nevada, arrested on a fugitive warrant on suspicion of murder.

Earlier blogging on this from me and Michael Moynihan, each with links to or embeds of the incriminating citizen-shot video of the leadup to the shooting and the shooting.
