Protest Planned 09/29 at El Cajon Police Dept. Against Police Brutality


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."

SAN DIEGO -- Emotional community leaders demanded a transparent investigation Wednesday into the fatal police shooting of a black man in El Cajon.
Protesters gathered Wednesday morning at El Cajon Police headquarters at 100 Civic Center Way to bring attention to the killing of Alfred Olango, who was shot dead by two officers Tuesday afternoon. And they weren't shy about voicing their opinions.
"They were too late in ordering the cameras that they need to have in their cars and on their uniforms," said Rev. Shane Harris, National Action Network San Diego Chapter, referring to the fact that El Cajon police officers do not wear body cameras.
"We do not trust local prosecutors to investigate local police," Harris added.  
A few hours later, just after 11:30 a.m., dozens of protesters began an impromptu march from police headquarters to the scene of the shooting.
At one point during the march, protesters gathered at a Kia dealership in the 500 block of N. Johnson Avenue. A number of officers lined the dealership's driveway.

On Tuesday night, authorities chose not to clear the hundreds of protesters who gathered at the scene of the fatal shooting. A handful of officers in riot gear -- some with barking police dogs -- formed a line, appearing ready to disperse the crowd at a strip mall parking lot in the 800 block of Broadway. But the officers were vastly outnumbered by the large and vocal crowd, which included people of all races and ages.
The officers stood in a line for about 10 minutes. Then, they retreated to their cars, which were parked in the alley. As officers drove off, a few protesters spat on patrol cars and yelled obscenities at them.
More protest planned for tomorrow Thursday 9/29 at El Cajon Police Dept.
