It is disgusting when hard working officers are sentenced to jail for fighting criminals.
It is discusting how you just said that. Im giessing you didnt watch the video. That proof, and the video doesnt lie. He clearly took advantage of his authority & does not show remorse. & he only got 2 years? Really? I wonder How much time would he have gotten if he wasnt a white cop.. I find it DISCUSTING How the system is corrupt!

What some people are failing to realize is that Oscar Grant was a criminal. A low-life who, regardless of his color, was threatening the peace that night. The police are there to keep the peace. He wasn't some upstanding citizen who did community service, volunteer work, took care of his kids, etc. he was a low-life. Despite that, he didn't deserve to die but accidents happen. I'm not sure if two years is right or wrong and I'm glad I wasn't the one to decide. I do believe that society is no worse off without Oscar Grant in it.
You are nobody to be calling him a low life, especially if you didnt know him personally. Who are you? God? No. Only god can judge him. Nobodys perfect, and hate to break it to you but your not either..

after reading the details of this story I realize this was a mistake, the officer was wrong and I believe he should pay for his mistake, but looking at his record , he was never in trouble and no complaints were ever filed against him, he has paid his debt and this is something he has to live with for the rest of his life, it is amazing how people are quick to forgive rapist and these gang member killers but only they are worthy of forgiveness, that former officer does not owe the family an apology and they need to move on, my sympathies to the victim
Easy to say when it doesnt concern you huh. I wonder if you'd say the same if it was one of your loved ones that got killed.....

Ok, I must say, I am sooooo tired of people pulling the race card. Do I believe he is guilty? Yes I do. Do I believe it was racialy motivated.....no I don't.
That being said, If I rememeber correctly, he had pulled is gun at least twice. That tells me he knew exaclty where is gun was.
I do not think 2 years is long enough. I don't beleive he got a lighter sentence because it was a white/black thing. I think he got a lighter sentence because it was a COP thing. Cops can do no wrong. Even when it is caught on tape...plain as day, Cops can do no wrong and are rarley held to the same standards that the civilian public is. Seems that if you are a Cop, you are handed a "free get out of jail card" as soon as you get out of the acadamy.
Cand I just remind people, there were people of ALL RACES at the demenstrations to support Oscar. It was not only the African American people. We were all there and serveral of us support the Grant family.
It is 2010......can we get over the damn race thing already????

Paul D. Ryan is having his ass handed to him in his home state, which certainly gives the rest of the country a lot to think about if he can't get any homerism love.

Polls currently have Wisconsin at an 87% likelihood win for Obama (up 5% just from last week).

If WI is now locked on blue, Romney doesn't have room to loose a single swing state left and still have a chance to win.

And coincidentally, I also see a electoral map now has Florida tinting blue (62.6% likely to go Obama), when that state had been tinting red up until a few weeks ago:
