    Oscar Grant was on the ground. He was not resisting.  The cop took out his gun and shot him.  This is very clear from the video.  I don't believe for an instant that the cop was confused about whether he was using his gun or his taser.  I don't believe that anything about this murder (let's call it what it really is) was accidental.  Sadly, the jury and the judge went out of their way to make sure the murderer did as little time as possible.  If it wasn't for the video, I doubt he would have been prosecuted.  We have to support our heroes in blue at all costs.
