El Cajon Police Shooting: ‘Slain Refugee’ Was Ordered Deported Twice, Had Felony Firearms Conviction

So is this where the latest narrative of a poor innocent man gunned down by brutal police dies a quick death?

First, the almost cartoonish headline from the AP:

APNewsBreak: US tried to deport slain refugee twice

Slain refugee? The guy showed up here from Uganda in … 1991.

U.S. 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.

The U.S. 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.

Oh well, just another one who fell through the cracks.

Olango arrived as a refugee in 1991 and was ordered deported in 2002 after being convicted on drug charges. He was released under a U.S. 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.

Glad they went the extra mile there. Memo to “refugees” in the country for the past 25 years: Don’t pull anything on the police, or you’re likely dead:

Alfred Olango pulled a large electronic cigarette, known as a vape pen, from his pocket and pointed at the police officer who fired, while a second officer stood nearby trying to subdue him with a stun gun, El Cajon police said.

But of course there’s manufactured outrage! And in a surprise development, Olango has a lengthy criminal history.

The federal documents also detail a lengthy criminal past dating back to the 1990s.

Olango pled guilty in 1999 to receiving stolen property and received three years probation. That same year he was arrested for driving under the influence.

In 2001, he pled guilty to selling cocaine.

In 2005, Olango was arrested in Colorado as a felon in possession of a firearm. Police say a 9mm semi-atomic pistol was found in a car he was driving.

Other than that he was a great family man or something. Curiously, everyone’s claiming he suffered from mental illness, but …

According to the court records filed in 2010, Olango has no known history of mental or emotional problems.

That sound you just heard was the narrative imploding.

    But these poor downtrodden immigrants want to come to evil racist America for some reason??
    When they reported this one on the radio top of the hour newsbreak suicide by cop immediately came to mind.
    If it keeps up the democrats will have to increase the importation rates so their voter rolls don’t get too thin.

    So even though he was convicted, because Uganda refused to allow him back into their country he was put back out on the streets here? I mean I can see letting him into the community if he hadn’t been convicted, but he was so it just makes no sense at all.

    It would have been better for all concerned if the US had just nudged him and his parachute out the door over Uganda and let that government sort him out.

    Well, now he will get to go home to Uganda.

    Just a word to the wise, next time you point something at the Police during a confrontation, see what happens.

    No sympathy, he should have been gone long ago.
