G Richard's Review of Fruitvale Station
Remember in 2009 that YouTube video of cops assassinating an unarmed man in a subway? The murdered man was Oscar Grant III. The officer who murdered him is Johannes Mehserle. I wanted to know more. I wanted to crawl inside Grant's head, experience his life, discover who he was and what could have possibly led to this crime for the purpose of finding ways to avoid it. Unfortunately, the only viable conclusion one can reach after seeing the facts illustrated in this film is that police officers have generally become a liability to society, instead of an asset.
