Same ol’ thing, different place

EL CAJON (CNS) – Protests of the fatal police shooting of a Ugandan emigre at an El Cajon strip mall turned violent Thursday night, prompting the arrests of two men and the use of pepper balls by officers to disperse the crowd of about 50 to 75.

The third night of demonstrations over the death of 38-year-old Alfred Olango, which protesters maintain was unwarranted and racially motivated, started heating up around 8 p.m. in the area of North Mollison Avenue and Broadway where police said the crowd occupied the intersection.

The protesters stopped vehicles, broke car windows and knocked a motorcyclist off his motorcycle, according to Lt. Rob Ransweiler of the El Cajon Police Department.

    And the latest report on the dead dude was that the US GOV actually tried to return his ass (when he was alive) to Uganda twice, and both times Uganda refused on the basis that he was ‘crazy.’

    Fuck. Once again, some turd world nation sticks us with the bill for cleanup of their fuck-up.

    If you allow people space to riot…………

    you get looting……

    Drop the damn hammer on them early and you solve a lot of problems quickly…..

    Rioting and looting are not guaranteed by the First Amendment.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
