Alex Nieto’s name can be added to a growing list of young, unarmed men of color killed by local law enforcement. The 28 year-old City College of San Francisco student worked nights as a bouncer, which is why he wore a taser on his hip. Police responded to a 911 call about Nieto, described as a Latin male with a gun, walking late at night through his own Bernal Heights neighborhood. Assuming his taser was a firearm, they shot Nieto ten times. Since his death, the community has tried to take action in support of Alex Nieto and his family. Maryam Jameel reports from San Francisco on the aftermath of his shooting.
