On July 8, 2010, former BART police officer Johannes Mehserle was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of unarmed BART passenger Oscar Grant. The charge carries a possible sentence of two to four years in prison. Sentencing will take place on August 6th. It’s possible that Mehserle could get probation. We take you live to the streets at 14th and Broadway in Downtown Oakland with Apex reporters Miss Renee and Kiwi.

And we cover the elections in the Philippines, with Professor Bobby Tuazon, director for policy studies of the Center for People Empowerment in Governance, and Rhonda Ramiro, with Bayan USA.
