We know that several police officers will be in the courtroom to show their support for Mehserle. It is critical that the judge and the police see that everyday people who are concerned about police accountability and justice for Oscar Grant are there as well. If you're in the area, we want to invite you to come.

As you can imagine, tensions can run high at court hearings like this one. We want to encourage you to attend, but also want to make sure you understand that given the level of anger around the Oscar Grant case, we can't know exactly what it will be like at the courthouse tomorrow.
