U.S.: Muslim cop who shot Aussie woman refuses to be interrogated

Minneapolis: Muslim cop who shot unarmed woman refuses to be interviewed by investigators

And so the questions just grow more intense. There is still no evidence that Noor is a jihadi or that this was a jihad attack. But this does seem to be yet another manifestation of the fear of “Islamophobia” charges resulting in a Muslim being placed in a position for which he was not qualified and was able to do harm to others. The quintessential example of this phenomenon is Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the Fort Hood jihad mass murderer.

with three complaints against him in two years, Mohamed Noor seems at very least to be dangerously reckless and/or incompetent. It is likely that Minneapolis officials were so anxious to have a Somali Muslim police officer they could showcase that they put Mohamed Noor on the force and kept him there when his obvious shortcomings would have had a non-Muslim officer fired or not hired in the first place.

“Investigators: Cop who shot unarmed woman refuses to be interviewed,” by Ray Downs, UPI, July 18, 2017:

July 18 (UPI) — The Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot a woman who called 911 for help has refused to be interviewed by authorities investigating the shooting, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.

Officer Mohamed Noor shot 40-year-old Justine Ruszczyk, who also went by her fiancee’s last name of Damond, in the abdomen as she stood in the alley behind her home and told the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension that we will not consent to an interview about the incident.

The BCA is conducting the investigation into the shooting at the request of the MPD.

“Officer Noor has declined to be interviewed by BCA agents at this time. Officer Noor’s attorney did not provide clarification on when, if ever, an interview would be possible,” said the statement.

But Officer Matthew Harrity, the other officer who was in the squad car when Noor opened fire has been interviewed….

Both Noor and Harrity are on paid administrative leave during the investigation….

The police officer who shot and killed an unarmed Australian woman in mysterious circumstances after she called 911 to report a disturbance behind her upscale Minneapolis home has been identified.

Mohamed Noor, who joined the department in March 2015, reached over and shot Justine Damond, 40, multiple times from the passenger seat of his squad car while she spoke to his colleague on the drivers side in a back alley.

Both officer’s bodycams were off and the squad car camera not recording when Damond – who was in her pyjamas – was killed at around 11.30pm on Saturday, just a month before she was due to marry.

Ms Damond’s heartbroken fiance Don Damond, fight back tears on Tuesday as he spoke of his partner’s shocking death, claiming the police have failed to provide an explanation.

Mr Damond said the family were ‘desperate for information’ about her shooting – which he referred to as a ‘homicide.’

Mr Damond described Justine as a 'teacher to so many' who lived 'a life of openness, kindness and love' and had a 'great wit and humour'

‘Piecing together Justine’s last moments before the homicide will be a small comfort as we grieve this tragedy,’ Don told media gathered around his Minneapolis home.

‘Our hearts are broken and we are utterly devastated by the loss of Justine,’ he added.

‘It was Justine that called 911 on Saturday evening reporting what she believed was an active sexual assault occurring nearby.

‘Sadly, my family and I have been provided with almost no additional information from law enforcement regarding what happened after police arrived.

‘We have lost the dearest of people and we are desperate for information.’

  1. Being retired from law enforcement, I am naturally not so quick to condemn cops who are involved in questionable shootings. It is best to let the investigation play out and withhold judgment until the truth is known. Call it bias if you will, and this is clearly a questionable shooting at best. The woman was not a suspect and posed no threat. For a cop to be sitting in a car and shoot across his partner is unheard of, but if a suspect was drawing a gun at the driver’s side, I guess there would be an explanation for firing. What I want to know is what his partner has to say. Did he feel a threat in any way?

    We also now hear that Officer Noor has been the subject of previous complaints by members of the public.

    I know there are some out there who are claiming that Noor should have never been hired, and that this could be a case of sudden jihad syndrome. Perhaps, his Muslim sensitivities were offended by a woman on the street in her pajamas. Who knows at this point? If something like that turns out to be the case, I will be all over it saying, “here we go again”.

    If I want to be consistent, however, I need to treat this like I do other police shootings. I cannot jump to conclusions just because Noor is a Somali and a Muslim. Nor can I stand by him to the end because he is a cop.

    This woman, it is safe to say, should not have been shot. She was an innocent citizen trying to report a possible crime. At best, Noor made a judgmental error, one that cost an innocent person her life. Once, as a DEA agent in the 1970s, I almost made a similar error that could have resulted in an innocent bystander being shot as a drug bust was going down. Thank God I did not pull the trigger.

    I will withhold judgment for now, but we should follow this case closely. Noor’s motive for firing his weapon in this situation needs to be brought out.

    1. His partner, an officer named Herrity, said he was “stunned”. This was not one shot through the door, but several went whizzing by Officer Herrity.

      Noor already had 3 complaints (in two years) filed against him and at least one of them has turned into a civil suit. Will cost Minneapolis a bundle…come to think of it, their whole municipal package of insurance must be YUGE.

      50,000 Somalis in Minnesota and counting.

      BTW, I copied your story, or part of it here, Sheik:

      I am subscribed to your emails and wanted to use an Australian site for my link to this story.

      Why do you think Drudge has reported NOTHING? (as of Tuesday am). Very odd.

      1. Thanks, Dymphna.

        Sorry, I rarely go to Drudge. Can’t say why they don’t cover the case.

    2. The bullet has left the muzzle and is headed straight for your heart, but please, follow the case closely.

  2. He’s a cop, he’s black and he’s a muslim. What chance is there of any justice for Justine?

  3. In the article’s first (top) photo it (the criminal islam) is wearing gloves while shaking the hand of its fellow police officer !!!
    (
    can’t physically touch a non-believer .. but can killl ’em !!!)

    The Minneapolis authorities who rubber stamped this criminal to be a cop …
    are guilty of Treason to the US and murder (+) of a very innocent Lady …
    they literally pulled the trigger of the islam cops gun !!!

    When are these criminals …
    • The Minneapolis Mayor
    • The Minneapolis Police Chief
    (just for starters)
    and every one else complicit in the hiring and retention of this criminal islam as a policeman …
    even when commonsense cries out about Hiring Any islam for any security position …
    you would have to be a REAL fool
    also going to be arrested tried and incarcerated for murder !!!

  4. It might not happen today, tomorrow or next week, but you can bet that somebody will take this vermin out. He’s a dead man walking.

  5. This is not about anything but Islam. If you’re thinking anything else, you’re delusional.

  6. EVEN …
    the resignation of Minneapolis police chief Jane Harteau ….
    EVEN …
    If Minneapolis mayor Betsy Hodges was to resign …
    (better to arrest her for TREASON while she is the sitting official …
    now that sends a powerful message !!!
    )

    IT IS NOT ENOUGH !!!
    A further step has to be taken …
    continually for all similar events in the future !!!

    Both of them and …
    ALL THE OTHER Minneapolis LEFTOIDS implicit in TREASON against The U.S. of America …
    Have to be incarcerated for their crimes of collusion with the islam invaders !!!
