I think this is my 10th post on the Justine Damond murder.
Finally, we get to see Mohamed Noor, the cop who fired a bullet into Justine, killing her, in a mugshot instead of a police uniform.
Kudos to DA Mike Freeman for breaking through the blue wall of silence that had cops refusing to talk to investigators. Freeman is a hero for getting together a grand jury and issuing subpoenas to force zip-lipped cops to talk.
Excerpt from NBC News
A police officer who mistakenly shot and killed an Australian woman last July in Minneapolis was indicted on a charge of third-degree murder Tuesday, and the city’s top prosecutor blamed “uncooperative” cops for slowing down the investigation.
Officer Mohamed Noor was also charged with second-degree manslaughter in connection with the death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, according to records from the Hennepin County Jail. Bail was set at $500,000.
NBC News is ahead of itself. There is no evidence that Noor “mistakenly” shot Justine. That’s not the kind of mistake that’s easily made. From what we know about Noor, it’s conceivable that he deliberately killed her, based on his hatred of women and of white people. That’s only a theory, mind you, but if NBC can get ahead of itself so can the rest of us.
