On Saturday, 03.29.2014, Mission residents rallied to march for justice for Alex Nieto, a 28-year-old honor student and security guard whom San Francisco Police officers shot dead on March 21st. The officers say that they thought Nieto was carrying a gun and that he had pointed it at them. He was actually carrying a taser, which he was authorized to carry for his job as a security guard, and John Burris, attorney for the Nieto family says that no sane person would point a taser at the police.
