Remember this?

Update: Convicted, but only of “involuntary manslaughter.” The jury seems to have bought that he had meant to grab his Taser and got his gun by accident.

“This” being the shooting of a suspect while in custody by a Bay Area Rapid Transit police officer in Oakland, CA. I just heard on NPR that jury deliberations are underway in that (now former) officer’s trial, which was apparently moved to Los Angeles due to “racial tensions.”

Just to remind everyone, here’s one of the many videos showing the killing.

There are fears of violence if he’s not convicted of murder. We’ll soon see what happens.
