BART Officer That Pulled Trigger Resigned

- By Bossip Staff

The BART police officer that pulled the trigger and sparked another riot based on injustice has resigned:

Scheduled to meet with BART police investigators today, the BART Police officer involved in the tragic shooting New Year’s Day at Fruitvale Station submitted his resignation effective immediately. On Monday, the officer’s attorney postponed a meeting that had been scheduled by BART investigators for Tuesday and sought to defer the meeting until next week. BART investigators declined the delay and scheduled a meeting with the officer for this morning. At this morning’s scheduled meeting, the officer’s attorney and his union representative submitted his resignation letter. The officer was not present. BART investigators have urged the officer to meet and cooperate with the transit agency’s investigation into the fatal shooting. BART Police investigators have notified the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office of the resignation and this development. The District Attorney’s office is conducting an independent probe of the January 1, 2009 shooting. The BART Police investigation will continue to seek and examine all available evidence and will continue its full cooperation with the ongoing independent investigation by the District Attorney. “This shooting is a tragic event in every respect for all involved,” BART General Manager Dorothy Dugger said. “We recognize that the family and friends of Oscar Grant are in mourning and we extend our condolences.”

Oscar Grant did not have to die, but the pig that killed him should have to suffer some extreme consequences. This type of behavior must be extinguished. F*ck a Thug ass Cop too.

    Sad when those who are supposed to protect are the ones you have to fear!!!

  • Ermy Erm (BOOOO...Chitown predicting 8inches of snow today!)

    I couldnt tell from the video who shot the dude, but there was NO need for it!

  • JK

    They should still be able to investigate him and this accident properly although he resigned.

  • Bran Bran

    Hey!!! FIRST!!!

    If you get put on administrative leave with pay during an investigation and you happen to choose to resign instead, it would raise a lot of eyebrows, no?

  • http://www.gravatar.com Re is excited to see GAMBIT in May. FINALLY!

    How bout all the officers who may possibly shoot an unarmed, cooperative black male, resign ahead of time.

  • memchee

    Quite perplexing how a man lying face down ends up dead!

  • Strait4rmDaBay

    first, he shoots an innocent man..then he pleads his 5th amendment right to not say anything then he quits his job…

    his actions just said it all..

  • Detroiter4Life

    I agree DICooper!? Something about that just don’t add up!

    Condolences to the Grant family, it’s truly a sad sad end to a man’s life.

  • Aunt Viv

    May that cop be unmercifully punished.

  • Officer Cherry

    This wouldn’t happen if you people would just behave yourselves and disperse when ordered to.

  • STEFANY

    Being a police officer is the only job that I know of where you can kill someone innocent and get suspended with pay (vacation)and have the option to resign or keep your job.

    There is also a case in Texas where an officer shot a young man in his drive way after accusing him of stealing a car that turned out to be his car..The dumb ass obviously didn’t bother to check registration..And guess what? He’s currently suspended with pay while this young man is in the hospital with a bullet lodged in his liver.

    Did you guys see the videos?

  • Mrs. Rance

    Damn, he is hanging the city out to dry. You know they are the ones who will foot the bill for the shooting and his actions are ensuring the family will get a big fat settlement all while he isn’t even cooperating with agency whose butt he hung out to dry with his reckless actions.

    Put a http://www. before ktvu.com/video/18406962/index.html cuz the link is awaiting moderation

  • Carmellatte

    Dat’s straight up unacceptable, I can’t believe they are not moving fast enough to punish this ragedy ass cop for killing a unarmed man. Isn’t the videos that are being posted not enough to demolish his ass…Wake the F*ck up! If it was the other way around they would had have a warrent out for the blacks cop arrest immediately!

  • Mrs. Rance

    Resigning doesn’t get him out of trouble. I’m sure his lawyer told him to hell with paid leave. He has to quit or he would be forced to give a statement to his employer. Now he doesn’t have to and he shouldn’t because it would only serve to incriminate him. I’m sure he will stay quiet until a plea deal can be worked out. There is no way he is getting off scott free on this one.

  • Blacksmith

    @ memchee, agreed on that one!

    From the video you can see the man on his stomach, with 2 cops on his back. The one that shot him stands up with his gun outstretched while the other cop is still on his back. Then ‘BOOM’ the standing cop shoots the guy and the other cop gets up and starts looking around like WTF? You can even see the other guy they were trying to arrest sitting on the side of all this (with his hands in the air the whole time) looking just as stunned like he might be next!

    Strange indeed how you can end up dead on your stomach with a bullet in your back all while cooperating.

    _________________
    Deadly force is only to be used when there is an immediate, deadly threat. I have not watched the video yet myself but from the news and others, the man was lying on the ground handcuffed and posed no immediate deadly threat. Thus, there was no need for deadly force. And, by chance if he was acting up on the train there was no need for him to die for that unextreme behavior.

    @ Blacksmith…….SMH…..DAMN that’s Effed up!!! Makes me physically sick!

    He would probably be safer staying on the force. He’s free game now! Get him Left Coast! Pig
