Listen to the gunshots that killed Alex Nieto — the sound file is here

-

By Tim Redmond

I now have the sound file of the police shooting of Alejandro Nieto. You can listen yourself and see what you hear and come to your own conclusions.

It’s not great quality — this is taken from a security camera near, but not at, Bernal Heights Park. But if you listen, beyond the sound of sirens, you can absolutely hear the pops of gunfire — two, then a pause, then at least 12 more.

You have to click after the jump to get to it.

Here it is, unedited, just as it was given to me.

  1. As the S,F,P,D Inspector assigned to investigate this tragic case, I sent Mr Redmond an Email requesting his help in at least verifying the authenticity of this potentially significant evidence in the death of Alex Nieto. Believe it or not, my job is to simply gather the facts of what happened and leave the decisions of what was, and what was not justified, to the other entities involved (police internal affairs,the D.A.’s Office, O.C.C., and ultimately the courts) Predictably Mr Redmond can’t be bothered with the search for the truth and personifies why so many have so little faith in what passes for journalistic integrity. these days. Shame on you Mr. Redmond. John Cagney, Inspector, S.F.P.D. Homicide Division
