Slow motion video of BART shooting shows more details





I ended up slowing the video down by 50 percent and lightening it a little in order to be able see more details during the moments leading up to the shooting of Oscar Grant.

Although the video is much grainier and blotchier, it is clear that BART police officer Johannes Mehserle was frisking Grant before he decided to shoot him as opposed to reaching for something in his belt, as I had thought in my previous post, where I included the full video at normal speed.

As Mehserle is frisking Grant, the other officer gets involved and appears to be restraining Grant’s hands. Then suddenly, without any visible provocation from Grant, Mehserle stands up, pulls his gun out and shoots Grant with a single bullet.

It is not clear whether they handcuffed him or not, but after the shooting, you can see Grant’s hands behind his back in a frame that I froze and included in the video.

Here is an image from that frame. The quality continues to deteriorate which happens when you process videos into images, but you can see Mehrserle’s gun, Grant’s hands and the other suspect’s reaction.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
