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.’

‘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.’
