Mayor Betsy Hodges instituted hiring policies in the police department to prioritize the hiring of Somali Muslims. This at a time when more than 22 young men from the community had left the state to join al-Shabab in Somalia, and roughly a dozen people have left in recent years to join the jihad in Syria, including the Islamic State group. In November, nine men were sentenced on terror charges for plotting unsuccessfully to join the group and fight in Syria. Separately, a 20-year-old Somali-American went on a stabbing rampage at a shopping mall in St. Cloud last September, wounding 10 people before an off-duty police officer fatally shot him.
Blood on her hands. And more blood to come.
Muslims are not a special class, superior class. That is the sharia. This is America.
Hodges said “that effort will continue. The Somali officers on the force are seen as community role models, and are among the success stories of the immigrants in Minnesota.”
Star Tribune: “I’ve had more than one meeting with folks in the Somali community, and they are very eager to have more Somali police officers,” Hodges said. “And what I say is, ‘If we’re going to have more, you have to apply, and you have to ask people to apply.’ ”
Council Member Abdi Warsame, the city’s first Somali-American council member, shares Hodges concerns about the paucity of minority applications. “We need to look into why,” he said.
And like Hodges, Warsame said he thinks a racially diverse police force is important to improve relations between people of color and the department. “We don’t want to see anything like [Ferguson] happen in Minneapolis or Minnesota.”
Warsame welcomes Hodges’ push to get officers out of their cars more often. “The children and families in my ward have welcomed them,” he said of his 6th Ward, which centers on Cedar-Riverside. “It’s important to build rapport with the community.”

That’s Betsy on the right. Watch:
In the aftermath of the Minneapolis cop Mohamed Noor’s brutal murder of an unarmed woman in her pajamas, dhimmi Mayor Betsy Hodges thought she had her sacrificial lamb when she forced Police Chief Janee Harteau to resign. Not so fast. The people ain’t having it.
Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges said they are unable to compel the officer to make a statement. Are unable to compel the officer to make a statement? Why?
The Minneapolis Police have released audio of the moments around the fatal US police shooting of Australian yoga instructor and meditation coach Justine Damond in a Minneapolis alley. Why did Mayor Betsey Hodges laud Mohamed Noor? Because he was Muslim and because he was from Somalia.
The family of Justine Damond has hired a high powered attorney. I am so reliever that this cold-blooded killing is not going to be swept under rug just because the cop is Muslim. If he Noor survives and keeps his job that means special treatment. They can compel him. They can’t use the statement in court. So Mayor Hodges lied.
Why is UAE designated terror group CAIR getting our taxpayer dollars. Hamas-CAIR were named un-indicted co-conspirators and a Muslim Brotherhood front organization by the US government in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history. These foreign agents receive tens of millions of dollars from Arab countries. How many other CAIR chapters are funded…
