    I remember that case. It was a sad thing.

    I would like to know what Ms. Johnson wanted, basically, if the judge gives the officer prison time, he signs his death warrant. What exactly does she want?

    Did BART cop who killed Oscar Grant mistake gun for Taser? | San Francisco Bay View

    1. The manual states that the Taser X26 weighs 7 ounces. Depending on model and bullets loaded, a Glock pistol can weigh from 25-38 ounces. You don’t have to be a weapons expert to feel the difference between holding about two pounds and holding less than half a pound – try it.

    2. Police pistols are all black, sometimes with a very dark brown grip. The X26 has bright yellow markings on it. It also has a 2-digit LED display.

    3. The X26 has a safety on the grip that must be released. The Glock safety is on the trigger.
