Not surprised #AlfredOlango has been trending all morning on twitter. BUT after hearing witnesses' accounts of what happened (video above) and watching a bit of periscope last night, I am surprised to see this photo of Olango with his hands up having a seizure. :doh (he's not holding a gun)

I'm just wondering if there are busloads of BLM headed to San Diego today. They (locals) are wanting to see the video, NOW! :cool

EL CAJON -- Police opened fire on a seemingly irrational man who allegedly failed to comply with their commands at an East County strip mall Tuesday afternoon, sending him to a hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Patrol officers were responding to a report of a pedestrian behaving erratically in the 800 block of Broadway in El Cajon about 2:30 p.m. when they came into contact with the man in question in a parking lot near a fast food restaurant, according to police.

JUST IN: The family of the man shot by police has retained a local high profile attorney, Dan Gilleon, who issued the following statement:

    "With the family in shock from yesterday's shooting, the last thing they wanted to do was hire an attorney to defend a case being litigated against their son in the media. However, given ECPD's release of a single, cherry picked image from a video they refuse to release, we must respond.

    "Officer Richard Gonsalves should not have even been wearing a badge yesterday, much less allowed to confront a person clearly in need of a PERT intervention. When a sergeant sends a photo of his penis to a female subordinate, he should be fired.

    "ECPD is now circling the wagons to defend Gonsalves' decision to pull the trigger just like they circled the wagons to defend his sexually harassment of a fellow cop. The fact they are doing so in the media to taint the jury pool is nothing less than despicable emotional abuse of a grieving family."

Alfred Olango's parents live in El Cajon. He was one of 10 children. Their attorney is Dan Gilleon who also represents the women (Greer) in the lawsuit against Officer Richard Gonsalves -- who shot Olango. :roll

Officer involved in deadly confrontation was sex-suit target
By AP | September 28, 2016


EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) — One of the officers involved in a deadly confrontation with an unarmed black man in a San Diego suburb was demoted last year amid allegations that he sexually harassed a lesbian colleague.

Richard Gonsalves, who has 21 years with the El Cajon Police Department, was identified by the mayor as one of two officers who confronted Alfred Olango on Tuesday. Authorities haven't said which officer shot and killed Olango.

Gonsalves was a sergeant when Christine Greer sued him and the city last year. She alleged that Gonsalves repeatedly made unwanted sexual advances, which included texting her a photo of his penis and on another occasion texting that he was drunk and wanted to have three-way sex with Greer and her wife.

The lawsuit also contended that Gonsalves harassed other women.

After two investigations, Gonsalves was demoted from sergeant to officer, but he was allowed to remain on the force. That decision angered some citizens who said Gonsalves should have been fired.

But City Manager Douglas Williford stood by the decision. "It's entirely possible that a judge or a jury at some point in the future may disagree with the city's decision, and obviously the city will defend its decision with the utmost vigor," Williford told the City Council at a meeting where speakers called for Gonsalves to be dismissed.

Greer's lawsuit was settled months later. But she filed a second lawsuit this August.

Authorities tried twice to deport unarmed black man fatally shot by cops
By Associated Press
September 29, 2016 | 12:24pm

EL CAJON, Calif. — US authorities tried twice to deport the unarmed black man fatally shot by police in El Cajon, California, but his native Uganda refused to take him.

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Thursday in a statement to the Associated Press that Alfred Olango stopped reporting to officers in February 2015.

Spokeswoman Virginia Kice didn’t know if officers tried to find him after that.

Olango arrived as a refugee in 1991 and was ordered deported in 2002 after being convicted on drug charges. He was released under a US Supreme Court ruling barring detention of foreign nationals if deportation is unlikely.

Immigration authorities took Olango into custody in 2009 after a firearms conviction but were again unable to obtain travel documents.

El Cajon Police Department released the video last night BEFORE showing it to family. This is what the protesters are mad about now. Several news stations stopped showing the activity because the protesters were getting aggressive/physical with reporters and cameras.

21 arrested in California protests over police shootings
By Dan Whitcomb | KFGO | Monday, October 03, 2016 12:54 p.m. CDT


LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Twenty one people were arrested over the weekend in protests in Los Angeles and El Cajon, California over fatal shootings of two black men by police that stoked concerns about racial bias in U.S. policing.

Seventeen people were taken into custody in El Cajon on Saturday night and early on Sunday, most of them for failing to obey orders to disperse after an "unlawful assembly" order was declared, said Lieutenant Rob Ransweiler of the El Cajon Police Department.
[...]
In Los Angeles, four people were arrested on Sunday night during protests over the shooting one day earlier of 18-year-old Carnell Snell Jr. following a car and foot chase that began when officers suspected the vehicle he was riding in was stolen.

The Los Angeles Police Department has said that a handgun was recovered from the scene.

Nothing to update on this case, except to note they started protesting again tonight. Sounds like a small crowd when this was written. Another article said the protesters went to the sight of the shooting and freeway exits had to be blocked off by police as the protesters were walking down the streets. :doh

'Black Lives Matter' Protesters Take to Streets in El Cajon
By Jaspreet Kaur | NBC San Diego | October 14, 2016


Protesters once again took to the streets Friday night, just a little over two weeks after the police shooting of Alred Olango.

According to the El Cajon Police Department (ECPD), the protesters were heading eastbound on Main Street in El Cajon. Officers from the California Highway Patrol were also on scene assisting with traffic control.

It's unclear what led up to the protests.

An NBC 7 reporter on scene said there were approximately 20 to 30 protestors in the streets. It appeared that they were blocking the intersection of Magnolia Avenue and Main Street. The protests may be begun just after 9:30 p.m. Friday.

Officer won't be charged in killing of unstable black man
By AP U.S. News | January 10, 2017, 7:45PM ET


SAN DIEGO (AP) — A suburban San Diego police officer won't face criminal charges for fatally shooting a disturbed black man, a prosecutor announced Tuesday, saying the officer had reason to believe he was in danger when the man suddenly raised both hands and pointed what appeared to be a weapon but actually was an e-cigarette device.

The shooting of 38-year-old Alfred Olango last fall in El Cajon was a reasonable use of force, San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis announced.

"The law recognizes police officers are often forced to make split-second decisions in circumstances that are tense, uncertain and rapidly evolving," Dumanis said.

Her office determined "the only reasonable conclusion was the officer's actions were justified," she said.

Father files lawsuit claiming "excessive" force used with Olango
By KUSI.com | January 18, 2017


EL CAJON (KUSI) — The father of an unarmed Ugandan immigrant shot and killed by an El Cajon police officer in September filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the El Cajon Police Department.

In the lawsuit, Richard Olango Abuka alleges Alfred Olango’s civil rights were violated by the police department during a confrontation with two officers who used, “excessive, deadly force against my son.”

Last week, District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis announced the district will not file criminal charges against Officer Richard Gonslaves for firing his weapon in a confrontation with 38-year-old Alfred Olango.
