The anticipation is almost over!
One of the most talked about films, Fruitvale Station, comes out in theaters tomorrow.
Based on the true story of Oscar Grant, the movie shines light on the events leading up to Grant’s murder and everything that occurred after it happened.
On January 1, 2009, Oscar Grant was wrongfully shot at Fruitvale Bart Station in Oakland, CA.
The police officer who shot him, Johannes Mehserle, was charged with murder on January 13, and on July 8, 2010 was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to a maximum of two years in prison.
After only serving 11 months, Mehserle was released from jail on June 13, 2011.
A vigil was held January of this year, in honor of Grant, right outside Fruitvale Station.
Go see what REALLY happened to Oscar Grant, played by Michael B. Jordan, in Fruitvale Station, in theaters tomorrow.
