Full article because its short [quote]SAN FRANCISCO — A federal appeals court says Oscar's Grant father can sue the Northern California transit officer who shot and killed his son on a train platform. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday rejected former officer Johannes Mehserle's claim that he was acting in his official capacity when he killed the younger Grant during a 2009 New Year's Day melee captured on video by several bystanders. Violent demonstrations ensued after the videos showing the white officer shooting the unarmed black man were viewed by millions online. The appeals court said it's up to a jury to determine whether Mehserle was justified in shooting Grant in the back as he lay face down on the train platform. Mehserle served 11 months in prison after he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. The appeals court's decision affirmed a lower court ruling.[/quote] [url]http://www.policeone.com/legal/articles/6351154-Court-Oscar-Grants-dad-can-sue-officer/[/url]
Yes, let's sue him in addition to putting him in jail for almost an entire year. I'm sure he needs even more problems in his life.

The cop was a panicky moron who grabbed his sidearm instead of his taser and that was a stupid mistake on his part that cost someone their life. The victim wasn't exactly a star citizen either but he didn't deserve this death.
