I was in downtown Oakland when we got the two-hour jury verdict warning, and so there was plenty of time to clear out and head home. BART was massively crowded with all the people getting out of Dodge. As for the verdict itself...involuntary manslaughter, the mildest option available short of complete acquittal. Not surprisingly, people are upset and disappointed - including me.

I would have liked to have stayed downtown for a while to watch the press conferences, etc., but I was nervous that they would close the BART stations altogether if I waited too long, and that's my way home. So...I'll just be watching the news and reading Twitter this evening instead.

It's quite surreal to see an event from my own town becoming a trending topic worldwide. Fingers crossed that things stay calm.
