The reality is that Noor should never have been a police officer, and only was because he was Muslim. On the force since 2015, he had three complaints against him. He was described by neighbors as “jumpy,” “ill-tempered,” “strict” and “disrespectful of women and blacks.”
Hijab-wearing 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. The area in Minneapolis where Muslim killer-cop was recruited and fast-tracked for police work is a notorious hot spot for jihad recruitment.
Justice for Justine has been been a long, protracted road. Minneapolis Somali-Muslim cop Mohamed Noor shot unarmed, pajama-clad Justine Damond to death at point blank range. Damond had called 911 to report a sexual assault behind her home when she heard the woman screaming for help. Mohamed Noor “shot to kill” her when she approached his squad car just minutes after she called 911. Noor refused to talk to investigators when he was offered a chance to do a voluntary interview, and prosecutors wanted to use that as evidence.
Noor was found guilty of with murder and manslaughter.
Minnesota cop found guilty of fatally shooting bride-to-be Justine Damond
A Minnesota cop was found guilty Tuesday of fatally shooting Australian bride-to-be Justine Damond after she called 911 to report a possible rape behind her home.
It took a jury five hours on Monday and six on Tuesday to convict Mohamed Noor of third-degree murder and manslaughter in the July 2017 shooting.
The 33-year-old ex cop and his partner had been responding to Damond’s 911 call and driving down the alley behind her home.
That’s when the unarmed, 40-year-old yoga teacher approached their car in her pink pajamas, and was shot in the stomach.
Noor claimed he fired at the woman because he heard a loud bang on the driver’s door and thought his partner Matthew Harrity’s life was in danger.
Prosecutors questioned whether the noise was real and blasted Noor for shooting without seeing a weapon or Damond’s hands.
Noor could face anywhere from 12 and a half years for the murder charge and four year for the manslaughter charge.
