A group calling itself “No Justice, No BART” is alarmed that there may not be justice for the killing of Oscar Grant in Oakland, California. Widespread protests broke out in January after Oscar Grant was shot in the back by a BART officer on New Years Day.

The “No Justice, No BART” group is calling for a murder conviction for the officer that shot Grant along with suspension for other officers involved in the shooting.
