    The woman's name was Cara Knott.  The difference is that the officer didn't kill her in the line of duty - he pulled her over in the dead of night, and strangled her.  He'd been pulling over women on that stretch of highway for a while.

    The bridge where she was murdered is now named for her.

      ...The difference is that the officer didn't kill her in the line of duty...
      On the night of December 27, 1986, 20-year-old Cara Knott was driving south on Interstate 15 from her boyfriend's home in Escondido to her parents' home in El Cajon, when Peyer, who was on duty in a marked CHP patrol car, directed Knott to pull off the freeway on an unfinished off-ramp.

      Sadly, everything Communism said about itself was a lie. Even more sadly,, everything Communism said about Capitalism was the truth.

      Another difference is CHP vs. local police.  I'm not sure what the exact Oscar Grant Movement claim is.
