Anger in Uganda at US Police Killing of Alfred Olango

Posted October 03, 2016

The deadly confrontation in El Cajon, a suburb of San Diego, has prompted daily street demonstrations that turned violent late Thursday after protesters shut down streets and began throwing bottles and rocks at passing vehicles and smashing auto windows.

Police Chief Jeff Davis said the decision to release the video came out of a concern for public safety after demonstrations had become increasingly violent.

However, a lawyer for Olango's family said that the video shows an officer provoked the father of two before opening fire.

Gonsalves opened fire and the other officer discharged a Taser device, police said. In addition to the videos, police showed the 4-inch electronic cigarette device Olango had in his hands when he was shot.
