New video emerges showing BART officer punching Oscar Grant



Another cell phone video has emerged showing a BART police officer striking Oscar Grant in the face, knocking his head backward and staggering the 22-year-old man who was eventually killed by another BART officer.

The officer who punched Grant in the video is the same officer whose knee was on Grant’s head when Johannes Mehserle shot him in the back.

The new video aired Friday night on KTVU-TV in San Francisco.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the officer’s name is Tony Pirone. He is now under departmental investigation.

He and the other officers present at the time of Grant’s shooting all remain on paid administrative leave while the investigation continues, but until Saturday BART was not investigating the conduct of anyone besides Johannes Mehserle, 27, who shot Grant.

After he was punched, Grant can be seen sliding down to a sitting position and raising his hands in compliance.

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.
