Somali-born Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor has been charged with murder in the death of Australian Justine Ruszczyk Damond eight months after he fatally shot her while responding to her call for help.
From Fox News:
The Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot an Australian woman in July was charged with murder Tuesday after he turned himself in when a warrant was issued for his arrest.
The criminal complaint remained sealed by midday Tuesday, but according to the jail roster Noor was booked on a third-degree murder charge for perpetrating an eminently dangerous act while showing a "depraved mind." The second-degree manslaughter charge alleges he acted with "culpable negligence creating unreasonable risk."The evidence suggests Noor was hired not because of his outstanding qualifications, but instead to boost diversity numbers.
The shooting also prompted questions about the training of Noor, a two-year veteran and Somali-American whose arrival on the force had been celebrated by city leaders and Minnesota's large Somali community. Noor, 32, had trained in business and economics and worked in property management before becoming an officer.
Then-Chief Janee Harteau defended Noor's training and said he was suited to be on the street, even as she criticized the shooting itself. But Harteau -- who was on vacation when the shooting happened and didn't make her first public appearance until several days after the shooting -- was forced out soon after by Mayor Betsy Hodges, who said she had lost confidence in the chief.Noor having a body camera on while he shot her out of the blue for seemingly no reason would not have changed anything.
The issue is the collapsing of standards in the name of "diversity" and "inclusion."
If convicted of third-degree murder, Noor could face a maximum of 25 years in prison, though the presumptive sentence is 12 ½ years. A judge could issue a sentence ranging from about 10 ½ to 15 years.World Net Daily exposed how Noor was reportedly a "diversity hire" last year:
WND has learned he was one of five Somalis on the entire force and that the city makes a special effort to recruit Somalis as part of its affirmative-action plan.
"Minneapolis police have about half the black and Hispanic officers they need to accurately reflect the city's population, records show. This comes despite years of diversity plans, legal action and a federal mediation agreement sparked by low levels of minority representation within the police," the Star Tribune reported.Follow InformationLiberation on Twitter, Facebook and Gab.
