Talbot Discusses BART Shooting Case on KQED

January 16, 2009

Professor Robert Talbot spoke on KQED’s Forum about the legal questions presented by the case of Johannes Mehserle, the former BART police officer charged with murder in the New Year’s Day shooting death of an unarmed man in Oakland.

During the hour-long interview, Talbot was joined by professors from Stanford University and UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law.

Talbot discussed whether a murder charge is appropriate in the case, the likelihood of a change of venue for the trial, and how the videotape of the shooting could be used in court.
