After ruling today that disgraced BART police Officer Johannes Mehserle will, in fact, stand trial for the New Year's Day killing of Oscar Grant, Superior Court Judge C. Don Clay said the following.

There is no doubt in my mind that Mr. Mehserle intended to shoot Oscar Grant with a gun and not a Taser.

Yipes! Well, there's no need for a murder trail now, is there? (You real law types can explain it in the comments, please.)

Anyway, Mehserle is still free on $3 million bail. He'll return to court on June 18 for arraignment.
