LOCATION OF OCCURRENCE: 800 Broadway, El Cajon


On 10/17/16, at about 5 pm, two people showed up at the site angry that the memorial had been removed.  They became verbally assaultive toward the security officer who then asked them to leave the property.  They refused, called for others to join them and continued to remain at the businesses where the security officer was working. Security called the El Cajon Police Department who again asked the people to leave.  When they refused, they were placed under citizen’s arrest.  At approximately 6 pm, when officers were taking custody of those two arrestees, other members of the crowd began to assault officers.  Mutual aid was called for at that time.

The property owners of the strip mall hired a security company to help them return to business as usual.  Prior to this evenings events, participants in the memorial, who had been asked to leave the property returned and asked to collect their items. They removed the tents, grills and other memorial and personal items. Neither the property owners nor the police department removed  memorial items.

While responding to the disturbance, at least three officers witnessed a single suspect brandish a hand gun. Protesters also saw that subject draw the gun, and they tackled him. He dropped the gun and other protesters left the area with it. An unlawful assembly was declared via the helicopter overhead. It was at that time that protesters fled into the surrounding neighborhoods, prompting officers to walk the streets trying to locate the suspects that fled with the gun and the suspect who drew the gun.  Protesters who refused to leave the unlawful assembly were arrested.  The firearm was not recovered.

  1. Thanks, I cited your article in our alert.

  2. We are living in a Police State where the right to congregate is prohibited by police who would appoint themselves judge, jury and executioner of any black man who has the audacity to defy them.
    Indeed black males are slaves of the government now that they have been declared to be criminals. A black man with an unpaid traffic ticket can be executed for not immediately lying face down on the ground to be handcuffed as ordered.

    Minutes after Daniel Alongo was killed the Mayor, the County Supervisor and the press immediately exonerated the officer and patted themselves on the back to have quelled possible demonstrations like we have seen in Ferguson, Dallas and Cincinnati.

    Obviously, the El Cajon Storm Troopers are keeping a close eye on the dissidents on Broadway. Bring out the dogs and pepper spray. Welcome to the nation that stole the land from the Indians and worked the land with slaves to become the greatest Empire on the face of the earth. Do not dare step out of line.

    One thing I can tell you with absolute certainty – had it been me instead of Daniel Alongo I would still be alive today. Why? Because I look white. They may have tasered me or wrestled me to the ground – but they would not have shot me. If they thought I had a gun there would have been an hours long standoff where negotiators would talk me into giving up. But a black man with his hand in his pocket is ripe for execution.

    I challenge the mayor, the all-white council, the all-white Board of Supervisors to ask themselves the same question – would the police have shot you? Even if you were acting a little crazy or intimidating – would you still be alive because you are white? Absolutely! Now, what are you going to do about it?
