Former BARTPD officer Mehserle has been sentenced to prison for involuntary manslaughter. As I wondered about previously, he did announce that he was about to use his Taser, indicating his intent. He also, according to witnesses, made repeated excited utterances regarding that he had "shot" the victim after the shot was fired. They found that Mehserle had been "negligent", which was the basis of his charge. Maybe it's me, but "negligent" to me is failing to secure children in a car. It's not what the elderly do when they confuse the gas pedal with the brake. Which do you think is closer to Mehserle's actions ?
