    No where near enough. I wish they had exceeded their insurance.

    From the article: ...BART board member Lynette Sweet said in a written statement. “We’re working hard to make the [BART] Police Department the best it can be for our officers, our customers and our community."...

    Ms. Sweet, you have your priorities exactly backwards.

    He wanted to make the Gestapo the 'best it could be' too.

    The last thing Grant did was snap this pic of his murderer. $1.3 mil my ass.

    Well, he did serve 11 months. That proves cold blooded murder doesn't pay...or something.

    Ya know, if you search for that quote, in quotation marks on Yahoo!, you get three hits. The first two are from this site; the last is a site about searching for apps. Is there a scholarly cite for that quotation?

    I ask this because the Nazis actually loosened gun control for most folks in pre-WWII Germany. Of course, certain "select" groups were singled out not to have the right to carry restored.

    This was from a speech to the Reichstag in the mid-'30s. I actually saw it on another site with the citation years ago, but can't remember the actual date. It is a mild paraphrase from the actual quote, I recall. When I have some free time, I'll research it more. I do remember it was in response to another quote from Goerring when he was running the SS--just before Himmler and Heydrech took it and the Gestapo over.

    And don't forget that immediately after the shooting, Mehserle was allowed to flee not just the jurisdiction, but the STATE. I pointed this out at the time of the shooting and was told vehemently that this wasn't true... until an extradition order was sought against the perpetrator.

    How many of US would be allowed to flee the jurisdiction after an obviously bad shoot? The excuse was "threats" to his safety. I GUARANTEE you that if one of the victims of the Chicago Police Department's "SOS" home invasion gang had shot one of the perpetrators, they would have INSTANTLY gone to jail FOR THE DURATION, no matter if Osama bin Laden had videotaped a threat to the shooter PERSONALLY.

    One set of laws for the police, another set for the "little people"...

    Isn't that the truth.

    They should chain or cage him up at the murder scene, that way any folks walking by this murderer can express their displeasure at their leisure.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
