Oscar Grant is dead, shot in the back by a BART cop while he was lying on the ground. Police had been called to the train station because of a disturbance Grant was involved in.

The cop stood trial; his defense was that he thought he’d pulled his taser, and was shocked to find he’d shot Grant dead with his gun. Grant

The verdict was involuntary manslaughter.

BART cops are trained in the same academies as any other peace officer in California.
