Streaming: Chuck Prophet – Alex Nieto

Alex Nieto

Here’s new song from Chuck Prophet, grabbed from the headlines.  It’s about a police killing of a civilian in San Francisco.  Chuck stated on Soundcloud:

My co-writer Kurt and I had been following the case, and when the civil case verdict came down letting the cops off the hook the song wrote itself in twenty minutes. Nothing’s going to bring Alex Nieto back, but a line has to be drawn. He was killed because techies moved into his neighborhood and saw longtime residents as a threat. And the cops thought his Forty Niner jersey was some kind of gang sign. Don’t they train these people?
