Ex-BART officer's early release from prison draws protest

Jun 12, 2011 1:41:01 AM- latimes.com
Johannes Mehserle shot and killed an unarmed Oscar Grant III at a BART station in 2009 and was sentenced in November to two years. But now Mehserle is scheduled to be released Monday. Grant's relatives and supporters plan protests in L.A. and Oakland.

Family members and supporters of the unarmed man killed in 2009 by a Bay Area Rapid Transit police officer called the former officer's scheduled release "a travesty" and said Saturday that they planned to hold a series of protests in Oakland and Los Angeles over the next few days.
