Oscar Grant shooting
I just watched a movie with my children. It's a real story of how a 22 year old Oscar was shot by the BART police at Fruitvale station.
It impacted me. First, in 1977, I was at the BART area. Oscar was gunned down, too young at 22. He left behind a young daughter, a young girlfriend and his Mother.
My Son Andrew died, he was a sick baby, It was easier to accept. But Oscar was a healthy young man. I feel for his mum.
I feel sick to the stomach, because the police was released just 11 months after in prison.
