A bit of an update on this post: Johannes Mehserle was finally arrested on a murder charge of Oscar Grant. The still unknown verdict aside, this will surely provide satisfaction to some, but I consider it pretty insignificant in the long run.
Other people have already summed the whole thing up excellently:
"We cannot expect people to have respect for law and order until we teach respect to those we have entrusted to enforce those laws."

That aside, I hope to reactive soon (as in, actually post some music and all that).
