BART Pigs Killed A Man

If you haven't already heard about and seen this shit...
BART pigs shot and killed Oscar Grant on New Year's Day.

Watch the video

'nuff said.

Police have confirmed Grant was unarmed and have suggested the shooting was a fucking accident. Grant lived in Hayward and leaves behind a 4-year-old daughter.

There will be a rally to protest the shooting from 3pm till 8pm on Wednesday January 7th at the Fruitvale BART station in Oakland.

Contact BART Director Carole Ward Allen and demand that 1) the officers involved be taken off duty without pay and charged and fully prosecuted; 2) there be an independent investigation of the shooting that includes a review of training and hiring practices; and 3) BART establish an independent residents’ review board for the police Call her at 510-464-6095 or email the BART Directors at BoardofDirectors@bart.gov

Call the BART police to complain about the officers’ conduct and demand immediate action:

Chief of Police: Gary Gee 510.464.7022, ggee@bart.gov

Thanks. I called all those numbers and left message for all the people who were "out of the office".
