This miserable pig Johannes Mehserle faces only 2-4 years for involuntary manslaughter, supposedly with a 3-7 year enhancement for using a gun. Meaning, he'll serve a possible maximum of 11 years in prison. THAT'S just how much an all-white jury in L.A. decided Oscar Grants' life was worth - 11 years. But it's almost a certainty that Mehserle won't end up doing NEARLY that much time, PATHETIC! And what about the other pigs who violated Grants' Civil Rights that night? They were never even charged!
