Oscar Grant.

If you haven't yet heard about the New Years' Day murder of Oscar Grant, you should. The long story short is that a BART police officer shot and killed a young man who was handcuffed, on the ground, and had another officer standing on his neck. It happened at a crowded BART station full of people with cameras, and there's *a lot* of footage floating around the internet. It's so disturbing, I don't even have words to explain how disturbing it is. The site I linked to lists five ways you can get involved, even if you don't live in the Bay Area.

I've made the correction re: BART police. Thanks to all who alerted me to the mistake.
