Somalia is a anarchic warzone filled with 68 IQ mutants who have no historical conception of law and order.
Nonetheless, the Minneapolis police thought it would be A-OK to let these mutants become officers in the force.
So far, it’s turning out exactly as expected…
Attorneys head to court Thursday to argue over whether a criminal case should go forward against a former Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot an unarmed Australian woman who had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home.
Mohamed Noor’s attorneys maintain he acted reasonably July 15, 2017, when he shot Justine Ruszczyk Damond. They’ve asked the judge to dismiss the charges. But prosecutors say Noor acted recklessly in using deadly force against Damond, a 40-year-old life coach and dual citizen who was engaged to be married.
Noor, who has declined to speak with investigators, was in the passenger seat of a squad SUV when he reached across his partner and fired at Damond through the driver’s window after she walked up to them while they were stopped in her alley.
His partner, Matthew Harrity, told investigators they “got spooked” when she approached. Harrity said he heard a voice and a thump on the back of the squad, and glimpsed a head and shoulders outside. Harrity said he feared for his life and drew his gun, holding it by his ribcage pointed downward. Noor, however, fired at Damond, striking her abdomen. She died at the scene.
A federal judge is deciding whether to put the lawsuit on hold while the criminal case is pending.
Noor’s attorneys say the lawsuit should be delayed so Noor can fairly defend himself in both trials. Prosecutors support pausing the civil case to avoid prejudicing the jury pool. But Damond’s family says they deserve answers.
