Pro-Johannes Mehserle Rally Still On For Today
|Johannes Mehserle's fan club will rally in Walnut Creek today|
The "In Support of Johannes Mehserle and Law Enforcement Officers" rally has 156 confirmed guests on its Facebook page. Our calls to Mehserle's lawyer, Mike Rains, have not yet been returned: We're wondering what he and his client think about all of this.
Naturally, a counter-protest has been organized (also via the Internet). And, caught in the middle, is Walnut Creek's police force, which is bringing in extra personnel just in case things get out of hand.
Here's a prediction: Expect light attendance from both pro- and anti-Mehserle forces. Expect lots of cops. And lots of media.
