And she was white, and Australian to boot.  The cop just might get jail time for this one.  LOL  No, just joking.  Paid vacation and a promotion, I'm sure. 

http://www.startribune.com/woman-killed-in-officer-involved-shooting-in-south-minneapolis/434782213/#1

A 40-year-old woman who family members said called 911 to report a possible assault in the alley behind her home Saturday night was fatally shot by a Minneapolis police officer.

The shooting happened at the end of the alley on W. 51st Street between Washburn and Xerxes avenues S. in the city’s Fulton neighborhood.
The woman, Justine Damond, from Sydney, Australia, and her fiancé lived in the 5000 block of Washburn.
Three sources with knowledge of the incident said Sunday that two officers in one squad car, responding to the 911 call, pulled into the alley. Damond, in her pajamas, went to the driver’s side door and was talking to the driver. The officer in the passenger seat pulled his gun and shot Damond through the driver’s side door, sources said. No weapon was found at the scene.
“Two Minneapolis police officers responded to a 911 call of a possible assault just north of the 5100 block of Washburn Avenue S. just before 11:30 p.m. Saturday,” the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said in a news release. “At one point, an officer fired their weapon, fatally striking a woman.
“The BCA’s investigation is in its early stages. More information will be available once initial interviews with incident participants and any witnesses are complete. … The officers’ body cameras were not turned on at the time and the squad camera did not capture the incident. Investigators are attempting to determine whether any video of the incident exists.”


Authorities have not released the woman’s name, but it was confirmed by people at the scene.
Minneapolis police confirmed that the two officers involved are on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure.
The shooting was called “tragic” by Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges, who held a news conference about it at City Hall late Sunday afternoon, appearing with assistant Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo and Linea Palmisano, who represents the 13th Ward on the City Council.
“I am heartsick and deeply disturbed by the fatal officer-involved shooting that happened last night,” Hodges said.
“I know the neighborhood well,” said Hodges, who represented the area for eight years as a City Council member.
“We have few facts at this point,” she said. “I want to know more. I call on the BCA to share as much information with all of us as quickly as they can.
“I have questions about why the bodycams weren’t on,” she said.
Arradondo confirmed that the officer bodycam program is fully rolled out in Minneapolis but declined to say more about why there is no footage of the shooting.
Zach Damond, 22, whose father, Don, 50, was to be married to Justine in August, arrived at the scene with a close family friend about 11:30 a.m. Sunday. While the couple were not yet married, Justine referred to herself as Damond on her personal website. Her maiden name was Justine Ruszczyk.
“Basically, my mom’s dead because a police officer shot her for reasons I don’t know,” Zach Damond said, referring to Justine. “I demand answers. If anybody can help, just call police and demand answers. I’m so done with all this violence.”


Damond said Justine called police after she “heard a sound in the alley.”
He left the scene at noon Sunday to go to the airport to pick up his father, who had been on a business trip.
From her home in the middle of the block, Justine Damond would have had to walk a little more than 100 yards to get to the end of the alley.
There are three lights mounted on telephone poles along that route plus nine motion-detector lights on garages, and neighbors said the alley is well-lit at night.
A woman named Hannah, who came to the scene with Zach Damond and is a close family friend, said Justine was a “spiritual healer.” Hannah, 21, did not want her last name used for safety reasons.
“I don’t know what she was doing out,” Hannah said. “She’s such a kind woman. She took me in when I was in a tough situation and helped me with whatever I needed.


“They were just so in love,” Hannah said of Justine and Don Damond. “I’m just kind of in disbelief.”
At a community vigil in the neighborhood on Sunday night, about 50 friends and neighbors held hands in a semicircle around the spot where Damond fell, while another 200 or more people watched from the sidewalk and the street. Some sobbed.
“This woman was a beautiful light,” said Bethany Bradley of Women’s March Minnesota, who had been at the scene since Sunday morning. “She was loved. She should still be here.
“It’s OK to cry, it’s OK to scream,” she said. “Share what you’re feeling.”
Leslie Redmond of the Minneapolis NAACP said she and other members of the NAACP who attended “stand in solidarity with the family.”
Nekima Levy-Pounds, one of three mayoral candidates who attended, said, “I hope and pray this is a wake-up call for the community to stop being divided by race and socioeconomic status ... for treating everybody with respect.”
Dustin Johnson and his wife, Roz, live across the street from Justine and Don Damond. They saw the flashing lights and walked over to see police trying to resuscitate Damond as she lay on the ground.
Johnson said he heard no gunshots.


Justine Damond’s website says she “originally trained as a veterinarian” and “has also studied and practiced yoga and meditation for over 17 years, is a qualified yoga instructor, a personal health and life coach and meditation teacher, embracing and teaching the neuro-scientific benefits of meditation.”
She attended high school in Sydney. The story of her death was front-page news in Australia.
Earlier Sunday, someone drew colorful chalk hearts on the driveway pad where Damond was shot, adding names of others, including Jamar Clark and Philando Castile, who were fatally shot by police. A few hours later, Hannah, an artist, added “Live in love not fear” to the drawings.
Hannah said there’s no way Damond would have had a gun. She often talked about how much better it was in Australia, where people aren’t allowed to have guns, Hannah said.

For many years lived 8 blocks from where this happened and now don't live too much further away. This isn't a rough area in which a cop or anyone else could legitimately claim that you never know what's coming around the next corner and, if this wasn't a righteous shooting, therefore made a bad move was made based on adrenaline, past experience or panic. This is a nice neighborhood that is very close to some choice real estate and a high profile commercial district. Who knows what will come of this? However, the chances of the incident being thoroughly investigated are strong as opposed to this being some drug and gang infested area in which the officer would get greater benefit of the doubt.

I went on Fox News' Facebook page just for the hell of it, and I have to give them credit, they are consistent bootlickers.  There is no sympathy for this woman or doubt in their minds that this shooting was justified, regardless of race.  There is actually condemnation that Fox News even posted the story "until all the facts come in", and cries of FAKE NEWS and how Fox News has gone liberal.  This is how a large segment of our population thinks when it comes to authority figures.  In the end, they will paint this woman as having a mental illness or doing something erratic and no cop will do one day of jail time.  He'll likely resign with a full pension and his cop buddies will get him a cushy private security gig.  That is the harshest penalty any cop ever faces.  In the meantime, he's on a paid vacation. 

Jennifer Shambaugh Don't be stupid and you won't get shot. Pretty simple. Stop the hate on police

Joe Pepe Don't break the law and you don't have to worry about being shot. Freaking idiots!

Michael Dietrich Can't you people wait until the investigation is complete? You don't know happened. Like robots, immediately assume the worse. No wonder this nation can't heal.

Tim Clifford Well, she must've done something wrong, guess she wont do it again, never understand the stupidity of people who blame the police.

Norman Adwell Two things. 1.) I'll wait for the investigation to be complete and 2.) "Justine, a white woman living in southwest Minneapolis" . What difference does it make what color she was?

Michael Piccone Lets blame cops right libs? Trump?

Kevin Harmon How about we wait on all the facts.. Little tiny minds with a resentment you have over a parking ticket you got 20 years ago.
I've learned in life most cop bashers have had a lot of dealings with them.
A government survey showed men who bash cops .. Have small penises.

Nathan Stephens Why is this being nationally reported when there's no real details yet!?

Shawn Vegas Here comes the hate comments towards police and nobody has the slightest idea on what happen lol. idiots.

Chelsea Boltz There's so much missing from this. We don't know if she was shot outside in the alley that she heard the noise from, or if she was in her home, or in the street. We don't know if it was a mistake, or if it was on purpose. Maybe the guy he was aiming for was running by and she was in the cross fire. I don't want to make any assumption for or against any side until I know more...unlike most of you.

Amanda Hedrick First race doesnt matter.....even if she is white or purple is should have just said she was shot not white woman....buuuut the way the article read it sounded like the bullet went astray or didnt mean to hit her....but either way the cameras should have been on so we can know

I've long ago stopped wondering why my fellow conservatives are so quick to give police the benefit of the doubt on all matters. If you're naturally inclined toward the notion of limited government, why do you make an exception for law enforcement?

This has been my question for years.  Conservatives want limited government but defend the armed enforcers of government overreach in all cases.  Makes no sense. 

Of course the opposite holds true as well.  Liberals tend to be much more suspicious of cops, but favor a million nitpicky nanny state laws that guarantee innocent civilians will have numerous unpleasant interactions with said cops.

Fucking morons, all of them.

Well fuck me sideways and feed me donuts we all know Rossi is the last person on Earth to wait for all the facts before automatically throwing the cop under the bus, Obama and BLM have nothing on good old Rossi.

The murdering cop has been identified as Mohamed Noor, the first Somali-American officer in his precinct, on the job since March 2015.  He has no prior training and a degree in business administration, which certainly makes him qualified.

Black (very middle eastern/North African looking) cop named Mohammed (Muslim) kills an unarmed white woman right after the not guilty verdict came when a White Hispanic cop killed a black guy because he fit the description of a person who had a wide nose. 


Awww man I know that this is a tragedy but you couldn't write this better. What's the odds of him serving time?

I still say he serves no time because blue trumps all other colors, but there's no doubt they're damned if they do, damned if they don't. 

If there is no conviction, everyone will go crazy and it will be clear to people who never hated cops before that we live in a police state.  If there is a conviction, a huge portion of the country will still go crazy because this is the ONE time a cop does time and it's because someone Mohamed killed a white woman.  That will send a particular message loud and clear as well.  Add to that the international attention this case is getting now, and you have a perfect storm.  

If I was the optimistic type (and I'm not), I'd say this could be the Ground Zero case for at least some sort of systemic police reform.  But, most likely, they paint this woman to be a wacko hippie yoga spiritualist with a distrust of cops who "didn't follow orders" and made a sudden move and blah blah blah.  And automatically a decent percentage of the bootlicking community will fall in line.  It should be noted that the partner was whisked away and his identity has not been revealed yet, so they're making sure he gets his story straight.  That's pretty obvious.  The partner damn near must've gotten shot by this guy since Mohamed was in the passenger seat and shot across his partner's seat through the driver-side door!  I mean, holy shit, the partner probably wants him to fry as much as anyone.  So they had to secure him real fast to make sure he didn't accidentally tell the truth. 

But will this case turn some people against the cops who weren't before?  Yeah, I think this one shakes some bootlickers out of their trance.

I'm guessing this narrative will change now it's a Muslim shooting a honky.

I don't think it will.  You don't understand the cop-loving culture in that circle, and you also overestimate the racism.  Liberals constantly do that, carefully selecting which minorities aren't "real" minorities when conservatives love them: Bill Cosby (pre-rape), Ben Carson, Condaleeza Rice (for a while), Alan Keyes, Herman Cain, Clarence Thomas, Larry Elder, etc.  Conservatives like many minorities, liberals just get racist in return and call these people Uncle Toms.  If you're a minority cop, conservatives fucking LOVE you.  They're going to call this guy the only good Mohamed who ever lived and rally around him.  Just watch.

I doubt it. White folks don't march and protest hate crimes against white folks. They are either:

a) too busy with work, family, and other responsibilities
b) don't want to be labeled as a racist
c) don't believe it could happen to them since it is rarely reported in the news

We are so enriched by our diversity. Has everyone forgot about the fact that the perp that Officer Noor terminated was not American? I'm 99.99 percent sure she was an illegal. I'm not going to supply a link to that. Do your own research. But no doubt it's true. All the facts I need to know are IN. This PCP crazed outbacker leaned into the police vehicle. Officer Noor immediately put his life on the line for you and me because he feared for the life of himself and his partner. Thank God, or to show respect for Officer Noor, Praise Allah for his steely nerves and steady hands. He saved his partners life and the lives of scores of children that this bitch had on her hitlist.
