    Default Policeman identified in shooting of unarmed Australian woman in Minneapolis

    An unarmed woman, Justine Damond. from Australia was shot and killed by a Minneapolis policeman Saturday night for no apparent reason. The police were responding to the Damond's 911 call, but I have seen no explanation from police about cause of the shooting. Reports that the police body cams were turned off at the time of the shooting.

    The story has attracted great interest from in Australia, Britain and other countries. Here is one report from Britain:

    Minneapolis officers recorded calling for backup and attempting to perform CPR on Damond, who was shot dead by police after she called 911 . . .Damond’s death in the alley outside her Minneapolis home just before midnight on Saturday has devastated and outraged family, friends and left the Minneapolis community upset about the latest police shooting in their city. Her partner, Don Damond, said he was being kept in the dark about the incident.

    Recent reports have named the officer involved in the shooting:


    The BCA has not officially named 31-year-old Mohamed Noor, but a source confirmed that he was the shooter. Attorney Tom Plunkett is representing the officer, but declined to identify him. Noor, joined the department in March 2015 as the first Somali police officer to patrol the 5th Precinct in southwest Minneapolis, according to a city newsletter.

    Do you expect press interest will end now that the policeman has been identified?

    I hope he actually gets indicted and does time.


    I'm sure the forum police defenders are chomping at the bit to white knight for Mohamed... I don't see any reason why they won't.

    It certainly sounds suspicious. The killing is a huge tragedy in any case.

    Somehow I expect that media reaction will be very muted compared to what it would be if a policeman of Australian origin had shot and killed an unarmed Somali woman.

    I'm waiting till more info is known. My cousin that lives there said the woman was a Yoga teacher and had called the police for help. He also said the cop shot across his partner through the car to shoot the lady.

    I don't like to jump to conclusions so I will wait for more info.

    Yeah I'm waiting to see if it'll get moved like mine did, the main thread on this story. I actually gave reason as to why it should stay in the politics section.
    No one is asking you to apologize for your ancestors. We're asking you to dismantle the system they created, that you maintain and benefit from.

    Here is a link to a report of the officer shooting through the police car:

    Google News seems to have buried reports of the officer's name or origin, which is what I expected.

    Look, if you approach a police officer you're going to be shot. The policeman has to protect himself first. People who do yoga are frighteningly limber and have a deadly sense of balance and should be considered dangerous at all times. Good kill.

    Mohamed should be cleared and awarded a medal for answering her call.

    And there is still nothing political about the shooting.

    Was the cop politically motivated?
    Was the gal calling 911 politically motivated?

    You could say ANYTHING that happens to a foreign citizen in this country generates publicity and excitement in their home country. Still doesn't mean it belongs in Politics.
