Ge got 12.5 years. Good. Court documents show Noor’s legal team plans to argue there was insufficient evidence to sustain the third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges a jury found him guilty of last month.
I believe if Justine was wearing a hijab, she’d be alive. 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.”
Ms Damond Ruszczyk called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home just minutes before she was shot in July 2017.
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.
Ex-Minneapolis police officer sentenced to 12.5 years for fatal shooting of unarmed 911 caller Justine Damond
By: Fox News, June 7, 2019:
A Minneapolis police officer convicted of murder has been sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for the 2017 fatal shooting of an unarmed woman who called 911.
Mohamed Noor was convicted in April of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the July 2017 death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a 40-year-old dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia.
Noor shot Damond when she approached his squad car in the alley behind her home.
His lawyers had argued for a light sentence, saying sending him to prison would only compound the tragedy and leave him unable to make amends for killing Damond.
