From the series Uncuffed:

Ten years ago, 22-year-old Oscar Grant III was shot and killed by a BART police officer. His father, Oscar Grant Jr., has been incarcerated since before his son was born. Grant Jr. is housed at Solano State Prison, where he was interviewed by JulianGlenn Padgett, a fellow prisoner. This is Grant Jr.’s first recorded interview.

 

Any time a little youngster gets killed, and they bring up my son, that’s Oscar Grant. All over again.
