Alfred Olango in San Diego, California, became the 217th Black person killed by police this year, according to Mapping Police Violence. Olango’s sister called police after he began acting strangely. He was allegedly disabled and suffered from a seizure moments before being confronted by police officers. Instead of taking the time to realize that Olango was mentally disabled, the police reacted with deadly force. Olango, who was unarmed, was shot by an officer who fired five rounds.
