Sadly, Matier & Ross have word that the BART police officer who shot and killed Oscar Grant on New Year's Day is now receiving death threats. It seems the BART officer in question, Johannes Mehserle, is being "kept under wraps and moved from place to place after receiving a number of death threats" according to BART spokesperson Linton Johnson. M&R claim that Mehserle is "devastated" over the incident. Rightfully so. What's more, Mehserle's girlfriend gave birth to his offspring on Friday. So, you know, there's that. Ugh. Anyway, the dynamic duo go on to say that "[i]f Mehserle is charged with a crime in Grant's shooting, it will be a first." Sigh. A sad case all around.
