Officer Marysol Domenici said 22-year-old passenger Oscar Grant was uncooperative as Bay Area transit officers tried to detain him and his friends after a fight on a train from San Francisco.
"If they would've followed orders, this wouldn't have happened," Domenici testified. "They probably would've just been cited and released."
Former transit officer Johannes Mehserle shot Grant in the back as he lay face down on a platform early New Year's Day. He has pleaded not guilty, and the court hearing will determine whether he will stand trial for murder.

This subtle shift in focus of a police officer is what is needed for the successful installation of a police state; welcome to the NWO.
