Amor for Alex – #BrownLivesMatter

This month last year, 28 year-old Alex Nieto was shot and killed by police in a park near his home in Bernal Heights. Nieto worked as a security guard and had a taser gun in a holster on his hip, which officers claimed they mistook for a pistol. He was shot ten times and died at the scene. The incident is powerfully described and reenacted, in this video by Blackout For Human Rights Media Collective, Green Eyed Media and DetermiNation.
