The shooting death of Oscar Grant by BART Officer Johannes Mehserle could have been avoided. It turns out that Johannes Mehserle and others officers beat Kenneth Carrethers a black man just two months prior to Grant's death.
Kenneth Carrethers tried to file a complaint to no avail because the one officer who handles such complaints was on vacation up until the week after Grant's death.You have to wonder whether or not that report had been filed would Mehserle been in position to kill anyone. It seems that police brutality was the norm with BART Officers and what's worse no one at the top seemed to care. Watch video of Kenneth Carrethers tell his story by clicking the link:
