Target: Bonnie M. Dumanis, San Diego District Attorney
Goal: Justice for another black man allegedly gunned down by the police.
Another black man has reportedly been shot and killed by the police, this time in San Diego. Alfred Olango, a refugee from Uganda, was allegedly gunned down only a moment after the police arrived on the scene to investigate his strange behavior at his worried sister’s request. Reports show that Olango was clearly mentally unstable, one man even stating that he was suffering a seizure at the time of the investigation.
This is yet another senseless, racist killing in a long, thick history of such killings. This man did not need to die, the police could have simply taken him back to the station for questioning. He was unarmed, held nothing which could be taken as a threat, and was clearly not in his right mind, making his murder even more of an injustice.
This needs to stop. Black men should not be made to fear for their lives by the police whose job it is to protect and serve the populace. Once again, the police need to be reminded that black lives matter and that it is unfair to end them for no valid reason. Sign this petition to demand justice for Alfred Olango.
Dear Ms. Dumanis,
Another black man was allegedly shot and killed by police in your city, this time a mentally unstable unarmed man who was also a Uganda refugee. Alfred Olango’s sister reportedly called the police to investigate his strange behavior, but instead of doing as she requested they killed him almost immediately, seeing him as a threat. Too many black men have been murdered by the police force, and this cannot go on.
Black lives matter. This has been said over and over for the past many years, but it has not cut down on the number of black men killed. Your police force must face disciplinary action for their alleged crime. Alfred Olango’s death need not be in vain.
