I am very upset with the verdict. The justice system is terrible, they had absolutely no reason to give mehserle anything other then murder. First of all, if you look at the video of oscar grant getting MURDERED you can clearly see that it was not an accident. Oscar Grant was on the ground face down in hand cuffs, he could not resist arrest, mehserle's gun and his tazzer are on different sides of his hip and he will know the difference even in a panic because the tazzer is very distinctive. The way he held the gun over oscar grant made the gun very visible mehserle and he shot oscar grant anyway. If a person kills someone honestly on accident they would not be as calm as mehserle was, he shot oscar grant and then just put his gun back in the holster like nothing happened. Mehserle murdered Oscar Grant and he should serve much more than 2-4 years.
