BART Police Brutality: BART Police Shoot and Kill Man at Fruitvale BART Station

In the early hours of January 1st, BART police shot and killed a 22
year old man, Oscar Grant, on the platform of the Fruitvale BART
station in Oakland. Witnesses report that Grant was "lying on his
stomach with his hands out in a non-threatening position when he was
shot". Police have confirmed Grant was unarmed and have suggested the
shooting was an accident. Grant lived in Hayward and leaves behind a
4-year-old daughter.

BART officials have not released the name of the officer who
shot Grant. After the shooting, BART police seized several cell phones
from people on the platform who said they had used the phones' cameras
to record what happened. For the first two days BART officials told the
mainstream media that surveillance cameras at the station do not
record, but then corrected themselves Friday night saying the cameras
did record but didn't show the incident.
