Huh.

Didn't hear anything about it and I live in California.

Closer to San Diego,
but still

EDIT: Holy ****!

Just watched the video!

That was pretty ****ed up.

I wonder what the officer found that made him shoot him?
Really, I don't think anything could have justified that shooting.
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

Really messed up.
He didn't looked handcuffed though, the guy to the right of him had his hands up only.

It's funny he sang the wrong date, it was April 28th, my friend was born that day =P

I'm. Fucking. Mad.

I watched the video and its got me all riled up now. I'm sure that if i was in the area, I would definitely be one of those people who go crazy irrational with their emotions and starts chucking molotovs.

I was just thinking the other day, "there was riots when Alexandros Grigoropoulos was murdered, why not Oscar Grant?"

I am in solidarity with the demonstrators.

You were sitting home watching your T.V., while I was participating in some anarchy..
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.

wasn't the LAPD.
they keep mentioning BART, what's that? Their transit system officers? Hm, they mention their headquarters, but don't say much else.

Yes. Bay Area Rapid Transit. Correct.
#24
It's been on the news everyday around here, because it happened about 45 minutes away.
BART is a train system, they're talking about the BART security.

Heard about a little bit ago...Pisses me off...But not quite as much as what Israel is doing now...They are doing that to over a hundred people.

If women can be annoyed there arent any women incongress I should be allowed to be pissed off there are no members of pink floyd or the beatles in congress.
#27
yeah i saw this too. i was about to take bart home from oakland that day too but decided go with friends. its incredibly screwed up.

not anything against cops or anything, but some of them get so consumed by their authority that they assume a position "above the law". its happened to my brother when he was assaulted by a cop and had to go to trial (he was standing in line for a bathroom and was "trespassing" because he was at a private location--his friend's house--and the officer beat him and completely screwed up his shoulder and back and my brother had to go to court for it), ive been put on hold for 15 minutes during a 911 call...it goes on and on.

i mean, i know cops have a hard job and all--and how nights like new years are probably extremely frustrating--but it's also their job to stay calm and composed, not lash out at some dude because he's being noisy like any other drunk guy is in the company of friends...

Ah shoot, you are right sir.
#29
Ah, thanks Kwonnie & DTL623.
Hopefully the officer decides to actually say something regarding the incident rather than just resigning.

He's resigned and he's going to make a lawyer-advised statement apparently.

Man... **** the police


They're pretty god-awful here in Chicago with us, too. Biggest issue lately's been police are having teenagers pull down their pants in public lest they suffer a beating.

It looked like two white guys from the video, but I could be wrong. Either way, great way to bring race into a conflict without providing any rational basis. :\

EDIT: Having done a little more looking, yeah, you may be right. But it's a silly thing to bring up at this point regardless.

I was watching the protest from my house. They were past us before things got out of hand, but you could definitely hear them. And then, the next day, it wasw like a war zone. It looked almost fake from a movie. IT was just so perfectly chaotic.
