Family and supporters of man killed on a BART platform early New Year's morning 2009 are planning their next move now that Johannes Mehserle has been sentenced to the minimum two years in prison for involuntary manslaughter.
One of the people who organized the meeting told KGO they are not giving up. "We don't accept the decision by the judge to give Mehserle a slap on the wrist," Yvette Felarca said.
The group said its newest target is the judge in the case Robert Perry. "We're talking about the procedures it takes to have a judge removed or reprimanded for the mistake that he made," Grant's uncle, Cephus Johnson told KGO.
They said they also plan future protests in Oakland.
Also Saturday, the lawyer representing Oscar Grant's family told AP he plans on following up with the U.S. Department of Justice and federal officials about its planned civil rights investigation into Grant's death.
Attorney John Burris said Grant's family is also preparing for a trial scheduled for next May 2011 stemming from the multimillion dollar civil rights lawsuits filed against the Bay Area Rapid Transit District and the officers involved in the incident.
Burris says the family was disappointed in the sentence, but added they had "some victories" because Johannes Mehserle is going to prison.
Oakland police said they will talk about Friday's protest, which ended with 152 arrests, at some point Monday. Several windows were broken during the protests and businesses spent the weekend cleaning up the broken glass and graffiti.
