The daughter of Oscar Grant, the man killed by officials with Bay Area Rapid Transit, is receiving $1.5 million in settlement money from a wrongful death lawsuit.

BART has agreed to pay 5-year-old Tatiana for financial support after the January 1, 2009 death of her father.

On New Year’s Day of last year, cell phone video surfaced showing the murder of Oscar Grant.

Officer Tony Pirone was seen holding Grant down while Officer Johannes Mehserle drew his weapon and shot him in the back.

Mehserle maintains that he meant to fire his tazer at the unarmed Black man….yeah, right.

Officer Mehserle has been charged with murder.

His case is still pending.

Attorney John Burris, who represents little Tatiana initially asked for $50 million in the lawsuit.

Is $1.5 million enough to make up for this???
