So, apparently before Oscar Grant was shot in the back, while handcuffed, another officer punched the young man in the face! This officer, Tony Pirone, left the person he was dealing with, walked over to Grant and punched him. Why haven't we heard more about this case? Maybe the excuse is that it is not national news? Naw, that won't work because I can hear about the trees and homes burning in California all day...yet not a peep about a young man being punched in the face, hands then cuffed behind his back, and then shot in the back while face-down on the ground. We gotta do better people...we have to keep shining light on these injustices...take a look at this video.
