I didn't watch the video in the link above, I've seen them numerous times though....anyway in an interview I watched with the girl that recorded one of the videos(there are two vids)she says after the young man was shot she backed inside the BART car she was riding in and a female officer ran up, started pounding on the windows, and demanded she hand over her camera. Of course she said no, that cop had no reason or right what so ever to demand her to hand over her camera. She obviously just wanted to make some very damning evidence disappear.

A friend of mine was walking down the streets of Chicago one or two years ago when she saw a small crowd around a few cops taking down a suspect and obviously using excessive force. She began filming the incident with her digital camera, which was forcibly taken from her when one of the cops saw it, before she had a chance to react. The cop held onto it until they hauled the guy away, erased the memory, and gave her back the camera. Disgusting. I don't think any action at all was taken against the officers involved.

Officer resigned. That hardly ever happens, especially so soon.
http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.c ... .DTL&tsp=1

The BART police officer who shot an unarmed man to death on a station platform early on New Year's Day quit the force Wednesday, avoiding an interview with police internal affairs investigators trying to get to the bottom of an incident that has prompted broad outrage.

...

We were prepared to compel him to talk, but he resigned," Johnson said. "We're going to continue the investigation, with or without him. ... There are many investigations that go on without the key person."

All it really means is that he knows he screwed up and that he's in some hot water.

This guy is not helping his case.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090114/ap_ ... n_shooting

SAN FRANCISCO – A white former transit police officer accused of killing an unarmed black man on an Oakland train platform has been arrested in Nevada on a warrant charging homicide, 12 days after the shooting that sparked violent street protests.

Johannes Mehserle, 27, was being held without bail Wednesday under a fugitive warrant issued from California, law enforcement officials said. Mehserle surrendered Tuesday without incident, according to a statement from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office in Nevada.
