Did you guys hear about this?
Here's a tidbit from this article:
The BART police officer who shot an unarmed man to death on the platform of the Fruitvale Station in Oakland early New Year's Day resigned from the force today, avoiding an interview with police internal affairs investigators about the incident.
Officer Johannes Mehserle, 27, was supposed to have been questioned today by internal affairs about why he shot Oscar Grant, 22, of Hayward as Grant lay face down on the station platform, BART spokesman Linton Johnson said.
However, Mehserle did not show up for the interview. Instead, his lawyer and union representative appeared and handed over a short resignation letter, Johnson said.
A video clip of the incident can be found here. Better quality video clip here.

The former cop also is now reportedly receiving death threats because of the incident.
What say you?
During the protests people wanted murder 2 charges, but it's unsure if he'll face any charges at all.
