Port warns residents to prepare for Mehserle verdict 

Parking cars in a safe location, removing all trash receptacles and securing buildings, are some of the warnings the Port of San Francisco is giving businesses along the Bay front in anticipation of demonstrations after a verdict is reached in the trial of Johannes Mehserle.

Mehserle, 28, a former BART police officer, is on trial in Los Angeles in the slaying of 22-year-old Oscar Grant.

Attorney’s rested their case Friday and handed over the former cop’s fate to the jury, which will resume talks Tuesday morning.

Bay Area law enforcement have said they are also prepared in Oakland and downtown San Francisco in case demonstrations get out of hand.
