Dang, I picked a fine week to travel to the Bay area.
Involuntary Manslaughter! Let the fun begin!!
Guilty of involuntary manslaughter.
Involuntary riots to begin.
Leftist groups plan a riot as Oakland boards up downtown
I never quite understand what that means. But, I guess what it means is the minority community is going to be ANGRY!
Involuntary manslaughter is exactly what it looked like on the video. It sounds like justice was served.
Clearly the officer did not intentionally kill this guy. A really bad tragic mistake? Yep....
Yah, that’s what it seems to me too. I’ll bet that’s not enough to keep Oakland from burning tonight though.
Sentence available is from 2 to 4 years, according to an Article in the SF Chron.
I'd wager within the hour.
Hey, at least the people in Los Angeles made the right verdict!
I think this is going to make the 1992 L.A. riot look like a walk in the park.
Will be interesting to see Obama’s take on the violence, death, and destruction...
Lol, just kidding!
Nothing to worry about right away- the savages aren’t drunk enough yet.
Some moron was “demanding” that the UN investigate. Hopefully, the rest of us can view any UN interference as an invasion by a lesser governmental agency. Got ammo?
“Actually it’s probably the best verdict...
Clearly the officer did not intentionally kill this guy. A really bad tragic mistake? Yep”

Lindsay Lohan gets 90 days in jail for missing rehab, this guy’s gonna get 730 days for killing a man. I could care less if he meant to or not. Dead is dead.
