Minneapolis: Somali police officer who killed Australian woman charged with murder

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 22, 2018

The murder happened last July—sure took a while!

On Tuesday, Leo Hohmann reported the latest at VDARE here.  I’ve posted some snips, but please read the whole thing. There is more information and a whole bunch of links to guide you to even more information on this case and related cases.

The Somali immigrant Affirmative Action cop who gunned down Australian Justine Ruszczyk Damond in Minneapolis last July 15 has finally been charged with murder and manslaughter.


Noor and Damond

The cop and his victim….


Justine Damond had called police at about 11:30 p.m. to report a suspected rape in progress behind her south Minneapolis apartment. A squad car responded, but as Damond approached the car in her night clothes, Officer Mohamed Noor fired across his partner, Matthew Harrity, killing her.


Freeman’s task is “daunting” because Noor has refused to cooperate with the investigation, other than to say that he was startled by an unidentified noise.

Incredibly, other police officers involved in the incident have also refused to co-operate. Both Noor and his partner Matthew Harrity had apparently “forgotten” to turn on their bodycams, a violation of procedure. A cover-up is obviously underway. [Or could it be fear of the Somali ‘community’ keeping them silent?—-ed]


Justin Damond’s killing received spotty coverage in the U.S. Main Stream Media, which was busy hyping the Black Lives Matter movement and not interested in some white woman killed by an immigrant cop from East Africa. But the case garnered international interest, particularly from Damond’s home country of Australia.


He was Hodges’ hire. Former Mayor Betsy Hodges, right, with constituent.

Noor entered the country as a child refugee and was the first Somali to be employed by the Minneapolis Police Department’s 5th precinct. He was one of five Somalis on the entire force and the city is making a special effort to recruit Somalis as part of its affirmative-action plan.

The city’s Affirmative Action program requires it to give preferential treatment to minorities, not only those hired by the city but by all contractors awarded contracts of more than $100,000.


So, a few months later when the department hired Mohamed Noor in March 2015, it was a big deal. The mayor herself, Betsy Hodges, issued a public statement boasting about the hire on Facebook.


The hiring of Noor was supposed to show the world that male Somali refugees could grow up to become model citizens, not just terrorists.

Much more here.  If there is a trial, will the mainstream media give it any serious attention?  Don’t hold your breath because this case goes against everything the failing media have been pushing on the public for years.

    Bodycams not on? Creepy, horrible details of this tragedy keep emerging. Thank you.

    Very wise move for the judge to take away Noor’s passport to stop him racing back to Somalia. The absurd reactions of his family, claiming racism and Islamophobia, is enough to let us see that they seriously feel their guy is the one who’s received bad treatment, forget the poor woman who lost her life due to Noor’s reckless action!

    update:Hours after first court appearance, Noor posts bail: The former Minneapolis police officer charged with murder and manslaughter in the July shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond made his first court appearance Wednesday, where his bail was set at $400,000. Noor paid the bond and left the Hennepin County jail late Wednesday in the company of his attorney. The Somali-American Police Association broke its monthslong silence on Wednesday, saying in a statement that it was “saddened” by what it called politically and possibly racially motivated charges.

  6. Fox News, NewsMax and CBN will probably cover that trial as they are Conservative outlets.

    And you think this will “stick”?


  8. I live in the Twin Cities. I really truly wonder if the officers were involved in the rape that that woman heard when she called the police. I believe that is why the other officer won’t talk. We have friends in that neighborhood that are moving out. The police can no longer be trusted.
