The Usual Thing is going on in San Diego: El Cajon businesses told to shutter over weekend as Alfred Olango protests continue
, bnonews.com, October 1 2016. And, also as usual, the Narrative is Collapsing:
Olango was ordered twice for deportation in the past after having several problems with the law. The prescribed run-ins allegedly included selling cocaine, driving drunk and illegally possessing handguns.But after his native Uganda refused to take him in, Olango was allowed to stay in the country. This was based on a Supreme Court decision that barred detaining foreign nationals for more than six months if the deportation was unlikely. According to a statement from the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Olango, who was ordered to appear regularly before them, stopped reporting in Feb. 2015.He fled Uganda, grew up in a refugee camp, loved cooking and soccer. And then he was shot by American police, by Abdi Lafif Dahir, Quartz Africa, October 1, 2016. Links in original, emphases added.
Olango was reportedly born in Uganda and "was in a refugee camp," presumably in Kenya, in the 1990s before coming to the U.S. as a refugee in 2001. [Who Was Alfred Olango?

If he was in a "refugee camp," he was not in immediate danger and there was no need (other than Electing A New People
) to bring him in. Plus there was absolutely no need to keep him once he turned out to be a bad skittle
—it's ludicrous that the U.S. can't impose its will on Uganda.
