Facebook reaction to release of El Cajon shooting video

Posted at 5:52 PM, Sep 30, 2016

Moments after the release of the cell phone video showing the shooting death of Alfred Olango by an El Cajon Police Officer, we asked our Facebook followers if their opinion had changed.

Did they understand the officer's decision to shoot Olango, or does the fact that the call came in as a 51/50 -- which authorizes a qualified officer or clinician to involuntarily confine a person suspected to have a mental disorder that makes them a danger to themselves, a danger to others, etc. --  affect their opinion of how officers handled the situation?
