Police Murder Caught On Tape?

On New Year’s Day of 2009, Oscar J.Grant III was shot and killed by a police officer on a subway platform in Oakland, California, while dozens of people watched. Today the police officer who shot Grant, Johannes Mehserle goes on trial for murder. He is the first police officer in California to ever be tried for murder in the line of duty, and perhaps that’s because the shooting was caught on video. But with the trial beginning, protestors also took to the streets of LA with the larger goal of ending police brutality. Alyona talks to RT producer Ramon Galindo from the Los Angeles studio to get all the details.
