John Burris, an Oakland attorney representing Grant's family, decried "a true compromise verdict."
"The system is rarely fair when a police officer shoots an African American male," Burris said. "No true justice has been given." Grant was African American and Mehserle is white.
Grant's uncle, Cephus "Bobby" Johnson, said that "we knew from the beginning that we were at war with the system. ... We have been slapped in the face by this system that has denied us true justice."
I wonder what "Bobby" Johnson did to keep Oscar Grant out of the thug life? Perhaps if "Bobby" was a better uncle Oscar Grant would be alive.
The Alameda County District Attorney is whining; still claiming that Mehrsel was guilty of murder, even though she was slapped down by the judge who stated clearly there was no evidence of murder.
Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley, speaking at a news conference in Oakland, said she was disappointed and frustrated by the verdict.
"We believe Johannes Mehserle was guilty of the crime of murder," she said. "We presented the case that way, we presented the evidence that way, and the jury found otherwise."
She is the perfect example of the lying DA in Tom Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities, searching for the great white defendant, guilty or not.
And we have confirmation that the racist cracker hater Eric Holder and Barak Hussein Obama have their sights set on Mehserle. Can anyone say double jeopardy? Oh, I am sorry, that does not apply to white people. Can any one say OJ?
