Bart Police...no good...

This is seriously a BIG issue and something that I hope does not go overlooked. We have had many incidents in where Police Brutality takes place and never gets proper justice served. Just because you wear a Badge and use a gun legally does not give you the right to feel like you need to use it, let alone fire your weapon unless you feel "threatened". We have seen certain incidents where a man goes for his wallet, His WALLET and Police take action that is unnecessary. This is definitely one of the worse by far. On New Years day, 22 year old Oscar Grant was with friends and pulled out of an Oakland train by Policemen, because of what seemed to be a fight, a young woman who was witnessing the event was recording the task at hand caught the cops force Grant to the floor face down, one of the cops by his back trying to handcuff Grant and the other cop by the neck holding Grant down. There were no signs of struggle, or any sense of Resisting to do what was being told to him, next thing we know, an officer pulls out his gun and a shot is heard. Watch the video for yourself.

This is just disgusting. I had seen the first video on the news a few days after the incident occured, but I had not seen the second video. That kid was murdered for no reason. It looks like a hate crime as well, but i'm not gonna take it there. It makes me wanna wear one of Justin's oink, oink, oink shirts. Freaking disgusting.
