Join the entire community at a press conference this Wednesday, December 21 at 4:00 p.m. at the north side of Bernal Heights Park to celebrate “The Alex Nieto Memorial Victory!” Last week the San Francisco Board of Supervisors’ voted 9 to 1 in favor of the memorial, which means that this ordinance is veto proof from the Mayor.

At the same time, with our power of amor, we will demand SFPD Officer Roger Morse be fired from the force for his threats to the Nietos; the San Francisco Office of Citizens Complaints, in an unprecedented decision, has sustained a review that demands action from the Chief of Police (see link below).

For Alex Nieto, for our community, we fought this fight, and we won the first memorial ever in California dedicated to a victim of an unlawful police killing. We held our dignity and proved to the world how the gente argue better and action more creatively and courageously than anyone ever could imagine. Come this Wednesday, so you, too, can celebrate community amor!

Once the memorial is established, community members will hike up to that mountain and pray like Alex did and look out over the beautiful view of San Francisco and be inspired by our community resilience. Students of all ages will travel up to that hill for field trips and to learn about the history and creativity of our community; they will write thousands of educational essays. Families will pilgrimage hands together and love each other at the place where Alex breathed his last breath. This will be a place of peace, of inspiration and amor.

Against the violence and injustice of 59 bullets, family and community rose to defend honor and promote positive spirit.

Amor for Alex Nieto: March 4, 1986 to March 21, 2014.

United we support each other, build momentum, transform the system, and create an authentic history. Food, beverages, and entertainment provided.

Now back to an argument I created back in March 2016. Finally our arguments are paying off because as you know the San Francisco Office of Citizens Complaints has now used these arguments to sustain an allegation of CONDUCT REFLECTING DISCREDIT ON THE DEPARTMENT against Officer Roger Morse for behaving inappropriately or and making inappropriate comments is SUSTAINED.

Watch the entire video for la pura neta:


All love to Ray Balberan for the footage.

Share this unprecedented authentic breaking news far and wide!!!!

For threatening the Nietos and community after the Alex Nieto Trial, The San Francisco Office of Citizens’ Complaints has NOW concluded the following about SFPD Officer ROGER MORSE:

The allegation of CONDUCT REFLECTING DISCREDIT ON THE DEPARTMENT against a police officer for behaving inappropriately or and making inappropriate comments is SUSTAINED.

The matter will now be transmitted to the SFPD Chief of Police for review and ACTION.

This means that Officer ROGER MORSE, who unlawfully killed Alex Nieto, should be punished for making threats after the trial. This has never happened in the history of the Office of Citizens’ Complaints. We, the people, lead the way! We can argue better than them! I thank Father Richard for bringing the matter up to the Office of Citizens’ Complaints. Below you will see the arguments I created on March 18, 2016, once I learned of the threats.…/black-and-brown…/

Amongst other things, we exposed a bona fide threat from SFPD Officer Roger Morse, one of Alex Nieto’s killers. On Facebook, immediately following the verdict, SFPD Officer Roger Morse threatened the Nieto family and Alex Nieto’s friend, presumably me. The following is a copy of the actual text posting on social media’s Facebook by Officer Morse:

“Smiling (referring to Alex Nieto). Ugh how about burning down his house and tazing his friend who pressed charges.”

Officer Roger Morse’s post is a threat in the English language.

I, Benjamin Bac Sierra, hold a B.A. from U.C. Berkeley, a teaching credential certificate and Master’s from San Francisco State University, and a Juris Doctor degree from U.C. Hastings College of the Law. I am a college English instructor and cannot read his statement in any other way except in the correct English manner described above. Any implications that others are attaching to his words are pure speculation. The words must stand on their own, and we must trust the police officer writer knows how to write in English. I have heard no other explanation from the source himself.
