After the Mehserle verdict, where is justice?

On the next Your Call, we'll open up a dialogue about our justice system. BART Police Officer Johannes Mehserle was given a two year sentence for the killing of unarmed suspect Oscar Grant. Who does our criminal justice system protect and who does it target? When protesters chanted "We're all Oscar Grant" -- did you think they were talking about you? Join us live at 11 or send us an email at What's our responsibility as a community to push for justice? And what does that look like? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
