We'll Remember Oscar Grant III: No Justice in the Capitalist Courts!

Jesse McKinley, for the New York Times (Friday July 9th), reports that dozens of arrests were made late Thursday and early Friday, as the Oakland, California police used riot gear and a heavy presence to disperse the mobs of angry protesters, which smashed storefronts, set fires and stampeded through city streets whenever officers surged to make arrests.

The protest actions began hours after a white transit officer was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter, a slap in the wrist, which means the killer cop will face, at maximum, only four years in prison, for the execution style shooting death of unarmed young black man, Oscar Grant III, on Jan. 1, 2009.
