A new video has emerged in the case of Oscar Grant III, who was fatally shot by former transit police officer Johannes Mehserle in a BART station. The new videotape below shows a second officer, reportedly Tony Pirone, striking one of the detained men (possibly Oscar Grant) on January 1st.
The officer identified by the media as Pirone appears to punch one of the men in the face. The same officer is shown pointing his taser at the men. Later, Mehserle would shoot Mehserle in the back.
The tape raises new questions about the conduct of the other officers before and after the killing. The prosecutors have insisted, however, that they will only charge Mehserle in the incident.
