LOS ANGELES — A judge sentenced a white former transit officer to two years in prison Friday in the shooting death of an unarmed black man on a California train platform, angering friends and family members of the victim who wanted a much harsher punishment.
The case against defendant Johannes Mehserle has provoked racial unrest at every turn, and police in Oakland were on alert for more problems following a sentence that many thought was too light.
Some of the dozens of people who gathered outside Oakland City Hall for a tribute to victim Oscar Grant broke into tears when they learned of the judge's decision. Outside the Los Angeles courthouse, a small crowd that had earlier shouted "No justice, no peace" reacted relatively calmly to the sentence.
Grant's uncle, Bobby Cephus Johnson, said outside the courthouse that the family was reacting calmly but could not comment for others.
"I have no power over what people feel their matter of expression should be," he said.
Mehserle had faced a possible 14-year maximum term after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter.
The mother of Grant shouted, "Oh my!" when Superior Court Judge Robert Perry issued the two-year sentence in court.
In making his decision, Perry threw out a gun enhancement that could have added 10 years in prison and said there was overwhelming evidence that it was an accidental shooting.
"I did the best I could with this case," Perry told the courtroom. "My decisions today will not be well-received by many people. I'm sorry for that."LOS ANGELES — A judge sentenced a white former transit officer to two years in... more
