Death by Gentrification: Alex Nieto Killed by Hail of Police Bullets in a Changing San Francisco

 

A look at the case of Alex Nieto, a 28-year-old Latino man fatally shot by San Francisco police in March 2014. The police officers accused in the killing claimed that Nieto pointed a stun gun at them, which they mistook for a pistol. Officers Richard Schiff, Nathan Chew, Roger Morse and Lt. Jason Sawyer fired dozens of shots at Nieto. According to the medical examiner, he was hit by at least 10 bullets. Last month, a jury unanimously found that the police did not use excessive force in responding to Nieto. Nieto’s family had filed a federal wrongful death civil lawsuit in August 2014, arguing in court that Nieto did not act aggressively and was carrying the weapon for his job as a security guard. We speak with Adriana Camarena, a writer, community advocate and co-founder of the Justice for Alex Nieto Coalition; and author Rebecca Solnit, who wrote a piece for The Guardian headlined “Death by gentrification: the killing that shamed San Francisco.” Camarena also talks about last week’s San Francisco police killing of a homeless man, Luis Gongora, within 30 seconds of their arrival.

THE REEMERGENCE OF WHITE HATE!

BY: LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

  The 2008 election of Barack Obama, America’s first African-American President, and the current economic instabilities America now faces, has given new life to white supremacist terrorist groups. As of 2014 , according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, there were almost a thousand active hate groups in the United States. And with white supremacist propaganda on the Internet, indoctrinating a new generation of angry white youth, white supremacist terrorism has spread beyond organized white hate groups, like the lone wolf suicide bomber, in some desert in the Middle East, America has recently seen her own form of lone wolf terrorism, perfect example is Dylann Roof, who on june 17, 2015, assassinated nine innocent African-American people, including South Carolina state Senator Clementa C. Pinckney, at the Emanuel African Methodist Episopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, and unfortunately in the near future the Southern Poverty Law Center believes that lone wolf and white terrorism as collective is on the rise in America.

But there is another Saudi Arabia rarely seen, in that’s the poverty stricken Saudi Arabia . But with the international recession and the price of oil down, nearly a quarter of the population is living at or below the poverty line.

THE U.N: GIVE THEM REPARATIONS!

BY: LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

A United Nations panel of human rights activists asked the United States government to give reparations to the African-American community, who were the descendants of black slaves in America.

The reparations would be intended to repair some of the damage done to the African-American community, through various forms of oppression, which includes :

1. Slavery.
2. Black codes.
3. Jim crow.
4. Sundown Towns.
5. Lynchings .
6. Domestic white terrorism (KKK).
7. Mass incarceration and police brutality , which disproportionately affect the African-American community, at a much higher rate than the rest of the population.
8. The 13th amendment. (Which permitted prison inmates to be used as slave labor.
9. Miseducation by a broken school system.

Mireille Fanon Mendes-France, the chairwoman of the UN Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent committee, compared the police killings of unarmed black men today in the United States to racist lynchings that occurred in the South, during the height of segregation.

Mendes-France did not believe that individual checks should be given to the descendants of American slavery, but rather she recommended money be spent for the “full implementation of special programs based on education, socioeconomic, and environmental rights.”

There is a precedence for the United States giving reparations to American citizens, the first case is when the United States government gave reparations to Japanese Americans, for their harsh treatment during World War 2 and in 2015 the Obama administration earmarked $12 million dollars in reparations to be given to holocaust survivors.
