I had heard about this a few days back but, when I saw this article and all the videos that go along with it I had to post it:
Brief summary is that Oscar Grant III was at the Fruitvale BART station when he was detained by BART police along with some other people. He was being held down face first by to officers when one of them pulled his gun out and shot him through the chest which killed him instantly.

Here you can chat about anything that's not Warriors related.
Yeah I agree with what everyone has said.
I believe that cops alot of times get a bad rap just for being cops. I definitely don't think that cops are all bad but this guy deserves everything that is coming to him, there is absolutely no excuse for him pulling out his gun and shooting him even if he "thought" he was pulling out a tazer.

Play nice you two
My woman's mom was trying to get into Alameda around 7 tonight and she said that they had to do this huge circle around the area where the riots were taking place, she said she was surprised they could even get in.

This situation is awful. That poor kid was only 22. The rent a cop's excuse was that he was trying to taze him but grabbed the wrong weapon accidentally. yeah sure. Do these people not get trained? I'm sure that is something that gets stressed in their training. He should go to jail for manslaughter one at least from what I've gathered of the crime.
I suppose the family should sue, although all the money in the world isn't going to bring their son back. Now more senseless violence. I hope the rioters come to their senses before more people get hurt or worse.
