Oscar Grant Killer Gets Two Years in Prison

Colorlines is reporting that Johannes Mehserle, the ex-BART police officer convicted of the "involuntary manslaughter" of Oscar Grant received a minimum two-year sentence. This after an emotional day of tearful testimony from both Oscar Grant’s relatives and Johannes Mehserle. Mehserle has already served 146 days in jail. The AP reported that Mehserle gave a ten-minute statement expressing his remorse for Grant’s killing. “I want to say how deeply sorry I am,” the AP reported. “Nothing I ever say or do will heal the wound. I will always be sorry for taking Mr. Grant from them.” Wow. Two years. No words.
