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.
