Was Justice Served in Oscar Grant's Case?

On July 8, 2010, the jury returned its verdict:  Not guilty of second degree murder, not guilty of voluntary manslaughter, and guilty of involuntary manslaughter. The sentencing date was set for August 6th.

You may or may not have heard his name.  Chances are, yesterday, you were too focused on Lebron’s decision or Lindsay Lohan’s debacle.  I don’t blame you.  It’s the media’s fault.  What you’ll learn here is the tragic police brutality and murder that took place on New Years of 2009 by a police officer and yesterday’s verdict of only one count, guilty of involuntary manslaughter.  Justice has been served, huh?  Tell that to the outraged people.
