Video: BART Cop Execution

From MSNBC:

A friend of Grant’s [the man killed by BART cops] who was with him on the crowded Oakland train station platform at the time of the shooting said Grant pleaded with officers not to harm him.

“Oscar yelled, ‘You shot me! I got a four-year-old daughter,”‘ said Fernando Anicete. “Oscar was telling us to calm down and we did. We weren’t looking for any trouble.”

Burris claims the shooting was intentional, and that he planned to ask Alameda County prosecutors to seek criminal charges against the officer. Burris said Grant, of Hayward, Calif., posed no threat to officers when a bullet entered his back and ricocheted to his lung area, killing him almost instantly.

“The officer leaned (in), was straddling over him and pointed his gun directly into the backside and shot (Grant),” said Burris, adding that Grant was handcuffed — after he was shot. “This was not a deadly force situation.”
