Mehserle gets two years.

Judge Robert Perry says that there was overwhelming evidence that the shooting of Oscar Grant was accidental.  Two years is the minimum sentence Perry could have imposed.  Mehserle will get credit for nearly a year of time already served.

No word on riots in Oakland.  Yet.

  1. I nearly cried when I heard this. What injustice. Somehow, I just don’t believe that if a black man had shot a white man, and claimed that he thought he was pulling out a Tazer, that would have held any water in court.

    I’m ready to riot here in South Dakota over it.
