More than 100 people arrested in Oakland protests

Editor’s Note: People are rightfully still seething over the travesty of justice that took place in the Oscar Grant case, so they took to the streets.  Their collective intention was not to commit a crime, but to exercise their First Amendment right to peaceably assemble.  As the report below states, when confronted by police, they headed another direction.  Nonetheless, their First Amendment rights were usurped through the broad common law modern definition of unlawful assembly, in which “disturbing the peace” is worthy of mass arrests.  Lawsuits should be forthcoming.


A march in Oakland, California Friday protested the two-year prison sentence for a former transit police officer who killed an unarmed man last year.

The group walked down several streets and was stopped by police but each time headed another direction.   Oakland’s police chief says one of his officers had a gun turned on him.

That suspect has been arrested.

Another Oakland officer was reportedly hit by a car.

They are upset that Johannes Mehserle did not receive the maximum sentence of 14 years in prison.

He was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for the New Year’s Day incident in 2009 when he shot 22-year-old Oscar Grant.
